How to create your own luxury spa at home
When you've had a hard week at work, you want to get yourself to a hotel spa somewhere and just drift away for a few hours. That could involve a bit of a drive, which you might not feel like doing. If that's the case, instead of heading to the hotel you can bring the spa to you. Pamper yourself at home with your own luxury hotel spa and give yourself the five-star treatment. Here's how:
Set the mood with some music
Set yourself up for relaxation with some calming music. It's important to have this music because silence can cause your mind to fill up with unwanted thoughts, so you want something soothing. You don't have to graft too much over your playlist. Head over to Spotify or Apple Music, where you'll be able to find a suitable spa or meditation playlist.
Upgrade your bath
It's not a spa session without a nice, long soak in the bath. Remember, you're spoiling yourself, so throw some effervescent bath bombs into the water or pour some Baylis and Harding luxury bath soak into it. The fragrance will help you to feel calm before you slip into bed or however next you plan to continue your day. Pamper yourself further with gorgeous toiletries, such as a lemongrass soap from Botanika to come out feeling like new.
Look after your hair
You might not be off to the hairdresser's, but that doesn't mean you can't do anything with your hair or that you shouldn't take care of it. While under the shower, give your hair a long, luxurious wash with a good shampoo and conditioner. A bottle from Taylor of London's Platinum range or from the Health and Spa line will give your hair a real treat. A hair wash isn't a must, however, and you can always use a simple shower cap to just protect your hair while you're under the water.
