Here’s your winter reminder to save some time for you.
I’ve been super into at home spa days because it makes such a difference in my wellbeing. As someone who has a lot of anxiety and doesn’t calm down very easily, having an at home spa day saves me! From my experience not a lot of people take time or realize they can have an at home spa day so I thought I would start sharing my routine with you and since it’s the holiday season I thought what would be more fun than trying out new themed products? So here you guys go, my winter spa relaxation routine!
First, every spa day must start with a few key components no matter the season. I start by setting up a spa playlist to set the mood. In this case for the holidays I am choosing holiday orchestra versions of songs (relaxing yet festive) just get out your phone and use whatever streaming service you like.
Then I bring out my salt rock lamp , this sets the ambiance. If you have a candle you can use that too bonus points if you have something with a holiday scent like cinnamon, gingerbread etc.If you have an oil diffuser (if not I’d suggest getting one to REALLY feel like you are at a spa) I love using essential oils to make a nice scent that fits the mood.
I also get a medium/small towel to wrap up behind my neck to use as a pillow. You can also put some peppermint or lavender (or mix both why not!?) essential oil on a rolled up towel and put in the fridge and hour before your bath to put behind your neck or on your face for a super refreshing feel.
Now it’s time for the holiday addition & some items you will need:
I love how the Glacial Ice mask is winter themed! It has a cooling yet moisturizing feel. I like this product because it’s suitable for all skin types and natural/mineral rich. The glacial oceanic clay contains over 60 minerals and rare earth elements. It’s verified by the Environmental Working Group. I’m all about products that are as good for you as they feel. Plus my skin was radiant after trying it out. Perfect to sooth your skin during the winter seasons.
I put on my mask while I fill up the tub letting the room steam up relaxing my muscles and opening my pores.
2. Charcoal Peppermint Body Scrub by Ecococo
How To use: I put the bath salt in while the water is filling up before I get into the tub. Then I get in the tub and soak for as long as I feel.
3. Puddy Holly Bubble Roon by Lush Cosmetics
Okay, I am totally being extra this holidays but these were too cute to pass up. Look at this bubbleroon by Lush Cosmetics!! I feel like adding this to any bath makes you feel extra special, plus its super fun to put in the tub and watch it change colors and bubble.
4. GingerBread Man Body Butter + Shimmer by Lush Cosmetics
One more Lush too cute to pass up.
Apply along exposed skin for a beautiful holiday fragrance with slight shine. And when you’re all done and dusted, use the ginger-and-clove jar as a packaging-free body butter to keep skin soft and smooth all season long.
*disclosure Nena Skin Care paid me to review their face mask & Ecococo sent me free product to try out. These are my personal opinions of the product.
