DIY Spa 101: The Favorite Products For At-Home Spa Days

It is no secret that the holiday season takes a toll on everyone. Even for school students that have copious amounts of free time to relax between semesters, coping with difficult relatives or rushing out to purchase presents can nearly always drive you crazy.

That is why it’s important to take a while to yourself, to relax and unwind.

Woman Relaxing at a Spa

Factoring from the sad fact that money does not grow on trees throughout campus, even spending coin over a day at a spa that is true is hardly going to fit in your student funding.

So if you’re looking for a special yet simple way to treat yourself or someone you enjoy this hectic holiday season, Here Is a listing of my favorite DIY spa products to make your homemade spa a five-star experience:

Earth Therapeutics Heated Head Wrap

Best DIY spa products: Earth Therapeutics Microwavable Anti-Stress Sinus Pillow

Not only does this help to relieve pressure in my mind when it is thumping, but I also use it if I’m feeling stressed or nervous to soothe my nerves and calm me down.  

All of this, coupled with the reality that it is not an expensive treat whatsoever, means you’re going to be feeling stress-free and ready to tackle the day in virtually no time at all.


Clarisonic Mia 2

Yes, even Clarisonics are expensive. But yes, they are worth it.

Employing a Clarisonic (I enjoy the Clarisonic Mia two method) to get a moment and a half every day or 2  gets rid of all the gross d**d skin and old cosmetics that lingers on your own face and clogs pores like there is no tomorrow.

Not to mention, the vibrations from the brush head also feel nostalgic as a decent face massage.

If you do not already own one and do not feel like investing in your ownpersonal determine if a friend or relative has one you could borrow (using a sterile brush mind, naturally).

Boscia Luminizing Pink Charcoal Face Mask

Boscia Luminizing Pink Charcoal Mask

Face masks are a crucial ingredient to any spa-like experience, so it is important to choose a nice one. This fresh  Boscia face mask is just like their black charcoal mask, but in a fun fresh pink colour. Meaning that anybody who understands and enjoys how successful the first is, you’re going to doubly adore this model.

This can be a gratifying peel-off mask that removes impurities, tightens pores, and companies and brightens the skin once you eliminate it.

What more could you ask for in a spa visit?

Hair mask 

L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm

You might just stick to pampering face and your skin, but what would be the fun in that? Why not put in a hair mask that is hydrating as you wait for your face mask to dry?

Focus this mask in the ends of your hair and also leave it on for a good 20 minutes before rinsing it out.

For extra strength, cover your hair with a inexpensive shower cap then wrap a warm towel around the cover to help the mask sink in even better.

Instant beautification, Viola!

Feet & Hand Mask

Sephora Collection Almond Foot Mask

Sephora sells these odd yet powerful feet along with hand masks that function incredibly to moisturize even the driest of springs.

Pop these suckers on for at least 20 minutes as you sit back, relax, and soak up all the hydration you possibly can. Easy, inexpensive, powerful, and the ideal addition to almost any spa afternoon.


Stress Relief Eucalyptus and Spearmint 3-Wick Candle

Last but definitely not least, an equally important part of a spa experience is having the right   ambiance.

Light up a soothing scented candle such as the or even a few incense, play with a relaxing playlist such as this 1 out of Pandora, and shut your eyes.

You will be transported to a spa, even if you’re only frightening in your childhood bedroom.

And you’ve got it, what you might possibly need to recreate your own relaxing afternoon at the spa, without the massive cost or time spent traveling to arrive.
