Covid has prevented many of us from going on the vacations and spa adventures of our wildest dreams. But you can get just as indulgent at home by creating a DIY spa in your own bathroom. Set the ambiance, provide the products, and lock that door — things are about to get a whole lot more relaxing.
1. Get unplugged
The first rule of Spa Club is to get unplugged! When we say detox, we’re not just talking physical. A digital detox does the body and mind good. It stops us from comparing our lives to others, and just lets us live in the moment, being content with the present. Instead, grab your favorite book or put on a calming playlist. You can also watch one of your favorite guilty pleasure shows, if you have a set up that allows for a laptop or tablet.
2. Heat towels beforehand
Spas never hand you a cold towel, and there’s just something so soothing about wrapping up in pre-warmed towels. If you don’t have a towel-warmer, put your towels in the dryer for 5-10 minutes, which should heat them up. Heat a couple of tiny towels too — if you dampen them a bit, they can be used to open up facial pores or soften cuticles.
3. Set the mood with plants
Herbs and plants can make your bathroom a botanical wonderland. Inhale a fresh garden while you take your bath and complete your treatment — it really can transport you to another world. Bundles of herbs like thyme or rosemary are fantastic, but our favorite is eucalyptus. Hang a bunch on your shower, which will make for a high-end steam room experience.
