A great spa experience engages all the senses, so don’t be afraid to curate some tasty delights for your day. For a refreshing and light option, try a bright fruit and vegetable tray. If you’re feeling sweeter, choose a few decadent desserts like crème puffs or chocolate truffles. Wine or your favorite cocktail may be the perfect pairing to go along with your treats, and can surely add a finishing touch to your at-home spa experience.

Renew Your Glow With Moisturizer

Adding quality moisturizers to your self-care routine will help you achieve soft and vibrant skin. Be sure to select appropriate products created specifically for the face and body, and account for any skin considerations you may want to address on your spa day. 

Establish the Mood With Scented Candles

Create a peaceful ambiance by lighting a candle bursting with your favorite scent. As one of the simplest at-home spa ideas, a candle will fill the room with a refreshing aroma, with the flickering light acting as a visual and elemental catalyst, gently ushering you into relaxation. 

Try an Exfoliating Body Brushing Session‍

Often done before bathing or showering, dry brushing is a common beauty technique for healthier skin. Simply scrub a stiff-bristle bath brush in small circles all over your body. Dry brushing can stimulate collagen production and increase blood flow, which is essential for strong skin.

Soak in a Tranquil Bath

The euphoric feeling of cascading water across your skin will help you loosen up after a long day.

Feel at Ease With Warm Loungewear and Towels

Along with heated towels, spas are known for cozy robes and slippers. Don’t be afraid to indulge in these amenities when recreating the spa atmosphere. Splurge for a new loungewear set so you can truly pamper yourself from the comfort of your home. Hang your robes and towels on a set of decorative hooks for a luxurious arrangement.

Hydrate With Infused Water

The glass of citrus or cucumber water given to you after a spa treatment offers vital refreshment. It’s important to stay hydrated while getting pampered (or pampering yourself) because spa treatments often involve heat and oils that can dehydrate your body. Before your spa day, fill a pitcher with water and add whatever fruits you’d like to infuse flavor. Your rejuvenating beverage will be ready to rehydrate you at the end of your DIY spa day. 

Design a Luxury Spa at Home

Major remodels and small updates alike can transform a bathroom into the oasis of your dreams. Sophisticated renovations, such as installing decorative vessel sinks or building a walk-in shower and tub combo, will bring spa-inspired appeal to your personal sanctuary.

When sweeping changes to the design or layout of the room aren’t feasible, try upgrading your wall art, bathmat, or luxury faucets for subtle yet impactful results.

Install a Pivoting Shower Body Spray
