You want to treat yourself, but you don’t want to leave the premises of your home. The spa sounds great, but it’s expensive and again, requires leaving the house. Enter the at home spa night! It’s a simple, effective way to put a little self-care into your schedule. Take some inspiration from your middle school sleepover days and check out our list of 10 things you might need for the perfect spa night.
You can’t start a spa night without getting comfy first! This Eberjey set is luxuriously soft and breathable.
If you don’t have a bathtub or prefer showers, these essential oil steamers will give you the same aromatherapeutic experience you might be missing from bath bombs. Just plunk one on the tile and let the shower steam up with scents like lavender and eucalyptus. This one from Lush is fun because you can use it on your body as well!
All bath lovers need one of these in cabinets! This particular tray has a space for a drink (ahem, your wine glass), a book or tablet, and even a candle. Soak in peace without worrying about dropping your book or phone into the water!
Face masks can be such a treat, especially if you don’t regularly include them in your skincare routine. This one from Summer Fridays is hydrating and calming. It’s a great option if you have sensitive skin and are looking for something to restore your skin barrier and add much needed moisture.
If you’re a skincare enthusiast and want a little more bang for your buck out of a face mask, try this one from Naturium. It’s an exfoliating facial in a bottle, disguised as face wash. Cleanse your skin, then use this mask like you would a normal wash. After rinsing, go in with your second cleanse.
A spa night is not complete without a mani-pedi. Olive & June has beautiful polish options that will make you feel swanky and good about what you’re putting on your nails. Their formulas are all non-toxic.
Take the nail salon home and give these paraffin booties a whirl. They’re easy to use and will make your feet oh so soft.
This hair mask by Briogeo has thousands of rave reviews and works on many hair types. Take those extra few minutes in the shower and feel your hair become softer by the second.
Dry brushing is one of those wellness trends that can seem like an unnecessary extra step in your beauty routine. But a spa night is all about excess. So give dry brushing a shot – it’s supposed to help with lymphatic drainage and exfoliation. You might love it!
It wouldn’t be a CAC wellness article without a candle suggestion. Carrie Ann loves Voluspa candles and this lavender scent is the perfect addition to your night at home.
