The average cost of single spa treatment can range from $150 to $450. For somebody looking for ways to minimize costs, this can be too much for your budget. Fortunately, it does not mean you cannot have a spa experience, especially when you can recreate a session from the comfort of your home. The things you set out to do will depend entirely on how much you’re willing to spend, and thankfully, it wouldn’t be much. You can even make your own safe spa products. It is a DIY spa night, and you call the shots.
If you want to have the Perfect DIY spa night, consider our tips below:
Stage the Night
Staging the night for your DIY spa treatment requires putting everything in place to create the right ambiance. First of all, dedicate a room in your house where this will take place. You may want to use low lighting or other colored illumination to evoke the spa mood. What you can also do is to light some candles about an hour ahead of time. You can go for safe and healthy fragrances, such as a Beeswax candle.
After taking care of the desired fragrances, it would be time to roll your clean towels in a convenient spot for your DIY treatment. The tip here is to arrange all the products you will need in an easy-to-reach location. You can decide to keep them at arm’s reach to avoid moving around looking for stuff when you have your cosmetic mask on.
Choose a Hydrating Skin Product
If it is your first time using a face mask, you may want to seek advice from a skin expert on what is ideal for you. A mild hydrating face mask may be a better option to be on the safer side. There are several types of face masks, and although each one claims to cleanse the skin and leave it moisturized, you don’t want to make the wrong choice. Furthermore, while some masks are created to attend to wrinkles, others are specifically meant for super dry skin. To guarantee a successful at-home spa session, do your research to know the differences.
Some face masks can be left on the skin overnight, while others are washed off after some minutes. The skin on your face is slightly thinner than the rest of the body. Therefore, it helps to pay particular attention to cosmetics you apply to your face. To be on the safer side, you can stick to trusted brands you are familiar with.
Relax the Entire Body
The idea of a spa treatment is to undertake activities that relax the mind and body. A steamy bathtub can be relaxing and help your body feel rejuvenated. Try adding some foaming bath salts to the steamy water for a more enhanced DIY spa session. Keep in mind that most bath salts contain magnesium sulfate, and some people can be allergic to it. If you’re unsure about your allergy status, you can still do something about it.
Try applying it to a small portion of your skin about four days to a week before your home spa treatment. If you develop no skin irritation, then you’re good to go. However, it would be advisable to choose other options if you do.
There are many things you can do to mimic a real spa session. Whatever you do, keep in mind that you can have a successful DIY spa night by taking the necessary precautions.
