How To Have The Perfect At Home Spa Day
By: Guest: Elise Miller ~
Crisp fall and winter weather with the return of the holidays means we will all be spending lots of cozy time indoors! An at home spa day is the perfect way to relax your mind and ease the stress all while rejuvenating and reviving your precious skin. Light the candles, pour yourself a cup of tea, play some relaxing music and put on your robe and slippers because here’s your ultimate how-to guide for creating the perfect spa day with these luxurious and natural skincare products.
Start by cleansing your skin from any makeup and dirt that might be on your skin with a gentle cleanser. Use Bodyceuticals Calendula Bioactive Salve Stick with warm water as a cleansing balm. Massage the balm into your skin and then use a warm washcloth to finish the cleansing process. Bodyceuticals Charcoal and Bamboo Facial Cleanser is another wonderful option to exfoliate and soften the skin. Simply dispense the cleanser into your palm with a bit of warm water and apply to the face, rinse and then pat dry with a washcloth. Cleansing will help to purify as well as soften your skin.
Gently hydrate and detoxify your skin while also taking a few moments to breathe and relax with an herbal facial steam. Boil two cups of water and pour the water into a large bowl. Allow the water to cool down for a few minutes and then add two or three tablespoons of Bodyceuticals Calming Herbal Facial Steam to the bowl. Place your head about 10 inches above the bowl and drape a towel over. Close your eyes, relax and breathe in the herbal steam for 5-10 minutes. Formulated with organic calendula, organic lavender, organic chamomile and organic rose petals, you are sure to be relaxed when breathing in this calming herbal steam. Once you’re done with the steam, be sure to save the herbal water because it will come in handy in the soaking step up next in your spa day.
There’s nothing like a nice warm bath on a brisk day. Fill up your bathtub with your preferred temperature and pour in the herbal steam that you used in the previous step. These skin boosting herbs in the herbal steam will continue to work their magic on your skin as you soak. Then, add a few pumps of Bodyceuticals Calendula Oil and a few spritzes of Bodyceuticals Vanilla Avocado Body + Hair Oil to the bath. Adding these moisturizing oils will keep your skin hydrated while you soak for that luscious silky feeling. You can also rinse your hair with the herbal steam as a way to strengthen your luscious locks. Relax and enjoy your soothing soak!
Finish up your spa day by moisturizing your skin and getting that dreamy and dewy skin glow. Apply Bodyceuticals Vitamin C + Calendula Facial Creme by massaging it on your face, décolleté and neck. This lightweight creme will firm and plump the tissue while repairing the tone and texture of the skin. Then, apply Bodyceuticals Calendula Oil to anywhere on the body that needs moisturizing, from head to toe! Massage the oil into your skin to get all the nutrients that calendula has to offer and to lock in the moisture from the facial creme. Calendula Oil will soothe the skin and leave it feeling soft and healthy. Finish off your spa day by applying the one and only luxe Bodyceuticals Vanilla Avocado Body + Hair Oil to your body, face and the ends of your hair for all over moisture that has the delicious scent of fresh-baked cookies, perfect for the holidays.
Cheers to a relaxing spa day!
