Feeling the winter chill? Creating a mini spa retreat within your home is great way to enjoy the benefits of a relaxing and rejuvenating salon without paying for the costly treatments. While enjoying your spa in the right surroundings will make it more fun, these five suggestions will help create the perfect winter retreat, wherever you may be.
Have a stack of warm fluffy towels ready
Before starting a DIY face or hair mask, pop some fluffy towels in the dryer. Warm towels make you feel warm and cozy, and are perfect for the winter time.
Create a steam bath...in a cup!
Lush's new Dream Steam steamer tabs are perfect for steaming your face—in a cup! Drop one into a mug of boiling water and place your face over the steam. It will help to open your pores and the rose petals work to soothe and moisturize your skin. Then when it's cool, place the water in a spray bottle and use it as a scented mist over your face or your feet!
Play soothing music
Feeling relaxed is essential during spa time. Playing soothing music such as waterfall or beach sounds, or even your favorite classical tunes, will help you calm those busy thoughts.
Drink a good-for-you herbal tea
At the end of a spa treatment, you often unwind with a warm cup of herbal tea. Try chamomile for a relaxing effect, or ginger and lemon for an invigorating energizer!
