Home spa tricks that you’ll surely love!

 

While it is a truly different experience being pampered at your favourite spa, setting up a home spa could be rewarding too! Good thing is, there are plenty of inspiration boards out there that could totally get you in the mood for decorating and prepping up for your dream bath.

We came up with a short checklist of what you should do to easily change from one setting to another, as well as the bath essentials that must always be in stock just in case you’ve got a guest to please, or simply when you want to indulge into a glorious pampering treat.

Tip:

Think of themes that you could easily switch to. Having themes help in making each home spa experience a unique one because just like food, you can’t have the same viand everyday. Write them down on a piece of paper and think of 3 to 5 themes you’d love to start building (of course, you can’t buy all accessories in one shot!). Go to Pinterest and start pinning!

What’s in our mind? Garden filled with flowers or potpourri, vintage theme paired with great 60’s music, zen – minimalist style, river/beach, and a lot more!

1. Flowers galore

It’s not like you’re going to pick fresh flowers daily! Every once in a while, treat yourself to a romantic spa bath that’s made for the movies. Instead of letting those flowers wither, why not include them in your home spa regimen? The sender would surely be happier if they find out you did something extraordinary with the flowers.

Did you know? During the ancient times, they believed that putting rose in the bath water would soothe and heal physical and emotional pain.

2. The scent helps induce a relaxing feel.

Ever wonder why you always, always feel like dozing off while having your favourite treatment at the spa? Spas always make sure they have aromatherapy pots warming the entire place. Aromatherapy for Stress Relief

3. Dim the lights.

Invest in a dimmer which you can get at a local DIY shop and ask an electrician to install it for you. If you have a big space in your bathroom, why not use candles as decors? If you’re using tea-light candles, make sure you blow them all out before leaving the bathroom.

4. Take it away, maestro!

Depending on your mood, you may listen to different types of music to enjoy your bath even more. Some people prefer to listen to nature (birds chirping, flowing river, the sound of the wind) and some enjoy classical music.

Body Scrub

5. Scrub it!

We have plenty of scrubs that you can choose from. Our Tropical Line has de-aging properties while our Silky Skin Body Scrub polishes all the rough areas of the body. Add Mystique Escape Bath Salt and immerse yourself in glorious aromatherapy. Don’t forget your face mask!

6. Cold cream

Here’s a simple trick. Place your moisturizing cream inside the fridge. Not only will you feel really good with the instant cold cream on your face, placing your skincare products inside the fridge will also prolong the products’ shelf life.

6. Happy Feet.

Show yourself some love. Learn how to perform basic massage on yourself. The best gift you can give yourself after a long day is a foot massage.

Body Scrubbing Benefits Plus Last Days of June Gift With Purchase

The benefits of a body scrubbing go far beyond skin deep.
If you’re not indulging in a good scrub once or twice a week, read on to discover what you’re missing out on…

Exfoliation
The most obvious of the many body scrubbing benefits, sloughing away dead skin cells helps to keep the skin in tip-top condition by paving the way for new skin cells and eliminating the flaky, rough skin so many of us experience in the colder months.

Skin Health and an All-Over Glow
If you fancy glowing skin (come on, who doesn’t?) a good scrub will be your best friend. So many of us work hard to ensure the skin on our face is glowing but if the skin on your décolletage and any other areas you dare to bare is sallow, you won’t exactly be the picture of health. The skin is the biggest organ of the body so look after it! Healthy skin is better able to fight off bacteria and infection that it may come in contact with.

Increased Circulation and Decreased Cellulite
A good exfoliation will help boost circulation. Improved blood circulation will help promote cell growth and organ function. Cellulite is also linked to circulation so a good scrub can help eliminate those unwanted dimples too.

The Benefits of Bathing: Detoxification, Deep Muscle Relaxation and More

Once upon a time bathing was a weekly ritual that people took hours out of their day for. It was about more than just hygiene, bathing was considered a religious experience and one that cleansed the mind, body and soul.
These days we’ve replaced a weekly bath with a daily shower and while we’re very much relieved that washing has become a daily ritual, it is certainly a shame that so many people are missing out on the health benefits of a good, long bath.

Let us remind you of some of the benefits of the bathing and show you how to get the most out of your time in the tub…

1. Muscle Relaxion
Whether you’re sitting at a desk all day or you’re an athlete, the deep muscle relaxation that takes place when you’re in a bath is extremely beneficial. You will find yourself with better posture, less aches and cramps and more able to perform during workouts.
Need an extra boost? Our Aromatic Moor combines Natural Black Moor and Pine Essential Oil to alleviate aches, pains and fatigue.

2.  Stress Relief 
There’s not that much you can do in a bath. Leave your phone behind and take time out from your busy schedule to forget about the stresses of day-to-day life. If you really can’t switch off, take a magazine or book in with you to distract yourself.
Embrace the powers of aromatherapy by throwing some Mystique Escape Bath Salts into the water and switch off from the world for a while. Rinse away the stress with our Anti Stress Bath and Shower Gel which can be used every day in the shower to ward off anxiety.

3. Detox
Hot baths help your body perspire and draw out toxins in the body. The warmth also increases circulation of the lymph system which helps to clear the system of toxins and create a free-flowing system to improve overall health. Our Aromatic Moor aids in this detoxifying process.

4. Reveal Silky Smooth Skin
A good soak helps to rid yourself of dead skin cells to reveal silky smooth skin. Massage our Silky Skin Body Scrub into your body to smooth, soften and activate blood circulation.
After you leave the bath and pat yourself dry, spray Dry Oil Body Moisturiser all over your body and massage gently until absorbed. Your skin will feel cashmere smooth!
