Headband, facial roller and sleeping mask in spa setting

Five at home spa ideas to pamper yourself

Taking the time to light a candle or breathe in some essential oils is an act of self-care that not only relaxes the body and mind, it forces you to take some much-needed time for yourself. Here are some lovely feel-good beauty treats that will bring that spa feeling home.

1. A beautiful candle

The soothing flicker of a lit candle cannot be overstated. The sight immediately calms the mind and projects a sense of calm, plus Nest Candles are renowned for their ability to “throw” their sophisticated scents to the far corners of your space.

2. A bubbly cleanser

A mild gel cleanser that gently foams to remove all traces of makeup, GlamGlow Gentlebubble™ is the perfect first step in an at-home facial. Infused with oat amino acids, it conditions the skin while green tea antioxidants protect from daily environmental aggressors.

3. A super-soft headband

Made of bunny-soft plush material in a vibrant fuchsia hue, Quo Beauty Beauty Headband is a cute and comfy way to keep your hair out of your face while you’re masking, cleansing or applying makeup. Plus, the adorable bunny ears add an extra touch of fun!

4. Aromatic essential oils

Calm, soothe and protect sensitive skin with Darphin Camomile Aromatic Care, a 100% natural essential-oil blend featuring chamomile, sandalwood, sage, lavender and bisabolol. Dispense five drops into your palms, breathe in the aroma and press into your face.

5. A glossy nail colour

Free of 15 chemicals commonly used in nail polish, Sally Hansen Good. Kind. Pure. Vegan Nail Colour in “Pink Cloud” adds a hint of sheer pink colour and brilliant shine for a naturally polished look.
