Raise your hand if you need a spa night!!! (everyone should have their hand raised right now) Every once and a while you need to pamper yourself and just relax. Here are my tips to have the ultimate spa at home!
The first thing I do is clean my room… I know It might not seem fun and relaxing, but it makes you feel so much better and organized, plus you will be so happy you did it. From this point on its only good stuff don’t worry. The number one thing you must have is a hot bath. I also highly recommend using a bath bomb! My favorite one is called the intergalactic bath bomb from Lush. It makes your bath a rainbow of neon colors and leaves your skin feeling so soft. Lush has a ton of great products, so while I am in the bath I also use the “don’t look at me” Lush face mask. It gets off all the dead skin, leaving your face brighter than ever! While I am in the bath I have to have something to do. My favorite thing is to set my laptop on the floor and turn on some Netflix duh, What else would I be doing! My favorite shows at the moment are Friday Night Lights, Gilmore Girls, and Gossip Girl. I highly recommend those if you haven’t seen them yet. After I watch a few episodes I get in the shower. I make sure to do my normal routine + a few more things. I make sure I shave, exfoliate, then I also do a hair mask while I am in the shower. I use the Macadamia Oil Deep Repair Mask. It’s usually more expensive, but I found a smaller bottle at TJ Max for about $8.
Once I am out of the shower, I moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! A lotion I found works great is the CeraVe moisturizing lotion, it’s the bomb.com lol. I put on my comfy robe and now for my favorite part, the snacks!! I try to stay somewhat healthy if I can, but make sure they still taste amazing. I usually make a bowl with all my favorite fruits, such as watermelon and strawberries, but I also grab some dark chocolate for something sweet. To drink I will just have some lemon water. Lemon water is a great way to detox so if I am feeling healthy I will drink that, but let’s be real sometimes my body just wants some chocolate milk. Then I do my normal nightly routine (I will do a more detailed post about it soon) but it basically just includes brushing my teeth and hair, putting on face and eye cream, then spritzing my face and hair with Mario Badescu Rose Water, which is the best thing ever to exist.
After I do all of that I am usually almost ready for bed. To put myself to sleep, I will light a candle and read my bible. It is a great way to end the perfect night! It is a good time just to let everything you’re worrying about be with God and become stress-free because everything is in his hands.
