Today, we all have complicated and busy lives. Between work, family, appointments with friends and the gym, it's not always easy to have time to kick back and relax. Here are our tips to create an easy Spa session to do at home, for relaxation, hydration and skin care.

Prepare your Spa Session

For the perfect Spa experience at home, start by preparing Flavored Water to drink while enjoying your day. There are many recipes online, but our favorite is to add a few slices of fresh cucumber and a few mint leaves to a liter and a half of water. Leave to rest and serve at will.

Build your space

Start by preparing your space, eliminating all distractions. Tidy up the bathroom surfaces, removing all everyday products from the countertops, sink and bathtub. Place several scented candles to give ambiance and aroma to the space and prepare a playlist with relaxing music. 

Face Treatment

Start your Spa routine with a treatment for the delicate skin of the face. Here's our step-by-step suggestion for a Spa face treatment at home:

Step 1: Face Cleansing and Massage - Start by cleaning skin well with a mild to aromatic product. We suggest the Blue Chamomile & Lemon Oil Based Cleanser by Captain Blankenship because it is suitable for all skin types and has a delicious aroma. Organic plant oils that effectively cleanse make-up, pollution and dirt from the skin, leaving it soft and hydrated. Take advantage of the smooth texture of this oil to give yourself a facial massage, to stimulate your muscles and help bring oxygen to your skin. It is an effective anti-aging technique that gives the skin a luminous and healthy appearance. We suggest this technique by Lisa Eldridge, a famous makeup artist known for her excellent skin routines:


2nd Step: Toner - Next, apply a moisturizing toner to help balance the pH of your skin and prepare it for the products we are going to apply then. The Organic Flowers Toner Deep Rich from the Korean brand Whamisa is perfect as it once again suits all skin types and also provides moisturizing ingredients

Step 3: Mask - Finally, apply a face mask suitable for your skin type. You can even apply more than one, in different areas of the skin, according to the problems of each specific area. If your skin just needs hydration, we recommend a sheet mask from Whamisa, like the Organic Flowers Hydrogel Mask. If you have combination skin and have enlarged pores and oily skin on your nose, forehead and chin, apply the BYBI Detox Dust Purifying Powder Mask to these areas , and a hydrating mask on the cheeks, like the Coco Mask by Skin & Tonic.

Hair Treatment

Start your hair treatment by applying a strengthening oil to the roots of the hair, massaging in well to let the scalp absorb the oil well. We recommend  Amla Hair Remedy by Alchemy Oils. A potent blend of 5 essential oils, inspired by Indian hair care tradition, that promote hair growth and strength. Without removing the oil from the roots, then apply a moisturizing mask to the ends of the hair. The Sister & Co Natural Hair Oil Moisturizing Treatment is perfect. Made from coconut oil, this product deeply moisturizes the hair, leaving it soft and smooth. Let both products work on your hair while you prepare your immersion bath.

Immersion Bath

Finally, bath time! Prepared with the right products, soaking baths can offer a variety of benefits Start by filling your bathtub with warm water, and apply a good amount of the ISLA Apothecary Himalayan Bath Salts. Bath salts help to remove toxins and impurities from the skin. They can also help remineralize and rehydrate the skin. The essential oils of these salts also contain many benefits. Also apply a few drops of a scented bath oil, such as Lola's Apothecary Tranquil Isle Relaxing Bath & Shower Oil, which helps to relax and release everyday stress. day thanks to its aromatherapy properties. Relax, enjoy the relaxing atmosphere that has been prepared for you, listen to your playlist and relax... Remove masks and oils from your hair, with the help of a natural shampoo, and exfoliate and massage your skin and body with the  Sister & Company Coconut & Coffee Oil Scrub, which will not only release dead skin cells, but also activate skin circulation and help disguise the appearance of cellulite.

Body Treatment

After bathing, hydrate your skin well with the Neroli Body Oil from Isla Apothecary, to finish off your spa experience on a high note. Made from essential oils rich in essential fatty acids, the skin is soft to the touch right after application, due to its high absorption and hydration properties. Neroli, Petitgrain and Tangerine oils purify and balance the skin, improve elasticity and smooth the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
