Choose your spa routine. You don't have to do everything that is listed here. Instead, pick the items that you have time for, need, or that appeal to you.
Give yourself a facial steam. This is great if you don't have much time. It will also help you relax. Fill a large bowl with homemade pumpkin spa facial recipe hot water. If you want to get fancy, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil, a handful of fragrant herbs, or a couple of tea bags. Lean over the bowl, then cover your head with a towel to trap the steam. Sit down some place comfortable, and relax for about 10 minutes. After that, pour the water out, and follow up with your favorite scrub, mask, and/or lotion.
Exfoliate away dead skin with a face or body scrub. You can use a store-bought scrub, or you can make your own using some sugar and oil. Apply the scrub in small, circular motions, then rinse it off with warm water. If you are using a body scrub, consider rinsing it off in the shower; this way, you don't have to dirty up the bath water for your soak!
Try a hair mask.
Your hair needs just as much attention as your skin. You can use a store-bought hair mask, or you can whip up your own. Apply it to damp hair, then tuck your hair up under a shower cap. Wrap a warm towel around your hair to further the experience.
- Consider multitasking! Relax in your tub while the hair mask is working. Most hair masks need to be left on for at least 30 minutes.
Relax in your tub.
Fill your tub with warm water, then add your choice of bath salts, bubbles, bath fizzies, or essential oils. Slip into the tub, lean back against the wall, and relax for 15 to 20 minutes. You can use homemade or store-bought bath products. Once your bath is over, slip into a warm bathrobe.
- For a quick and simple bath soak: fill your tub with warm water, then add 1 can of coconut milk, 1 tablespoon of almond oil, and 20 drops of your favorite essential oil.
- Rinse off in the shower. All those bath products are wonderful, but they often leave behind residue. Once your body feels relaxed, get out of the tub and drain the water. Then, turn the shower on, and rinse off. If you put on a hair mask, now is the time to wash those off too.
Apply some body butter. The best time to apply body butter is right after you get out of the tub, when your skin is still damp. All those rich oils and butters will soak into your skin, and leave it feeling silky smooth. You can even give yourself a massage while applying it! You can use either store-bought body butter, or you can make your own.
Multitask with facemasks and foot wraps.
Both facemasks and foot soaks take little time to prepare, but a lot of time to do their "magic." It might be a good idea to do both at the same time. Prepare your foot soak, then apply your favorite facemask. Once you have it on, massage your favorite lotion onto your feet, then wrap them in plastic. After that, wrap them in a warm towel, and wait 10 to 15 minutes. Once the time is up, take the feet wraps off, and wash your mask off.
- Get extra cozy by slipping into a warm bathrobe first.
- Dampen a towel, then heat it in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds. You can also use spa socks instead.
Pamper your feet. Fill a small tub with warm water, then add in your favorite foot soak. Slip your feet into the water, and relax for 10 to 15 minutes. You can pamper your feet further with foot scrubs, pumice stones, lotion, and a pedicure!
Don't forget about your hands! Take some leftover foot scrub or body scrub, and massage it onto your hands. Rinse it off, then apply some of your favorite hand lotion. Finish off with a manicure. It doesn't have to be perfect; just relax, listen to music, and have fun.
Finish off by relaxing in your bathrobe. If you don't own a bathrobe, you can slip into something you find comfortable, such as pajamas. Read a book, do your nails, put on some makeup, or listen to music. If you have any refreshments leftover, you can enjoy those too!
