How To Host A Spa Night At Home

If your looking for a fun way to unwind, or an activity to help bond with your roommates an at-home spa night is the way to do it. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars going out to the spa check out these easy recipes and hacks to bring the spa to you.

Create Some Atmosphere

Make your home instantly feel more relaxing with a few simple steps. The easiest is to shut off bright overhead lights. Set the mood with candles or lamps with a softer glow. If you do use candles try to burn ones with relaxing scents like lavender, lemon or jasmine. Not allowed to burn candles? Try diffusing essential oils, either in a machine or a reed diffuser.

Face Masks

Face masks are an essential part of any spa night and there are a ton to choose from. You can go for homemade, sheet masks, store bought, scrubs and about a hundred variations. Before you start your face treatment steam your face over a bowl of hot water with essential oils. Cover your head and the bowl with a towel to trap in the steam and open up your pores.

After steaming you can move on to masks. The easiest options are store bought ones but that doesn’t mean they need to be expensive. Stores like LUSH that use fresh products have expiration dates so go in and ask if they have any expiring masks when you have your spa night, they’ll either give you a discount or give them to you for free.

If you’re interested in making your own mask Pinterest is the way to go. You can find hundreds of masks that will help address your beauty concerns online. Once great recipe for a face scrub can be found here! If you’re looking for quick masks or for fancy scrubs you can find what you’re looking for online.

Once you’ve treated your face remember to tone and moisturize for the best results.

Treat Your Feet

We’re on our feet during so much of the day but sometimes we forget about them when it comes to a spa night. Give your feet some new life with some tender love and care!

An easy spa night treat that you can use any day of the week is a foot soak. All you need is hot water, some Epsom salt, baking soda, and essential oils. Combine all the ingredients in a footbath, or large plastic container and let soak for 15-20 minutes. The soak will help soften up your feet and can be done once a week!

That can be the end of your foot treatment or you can go a few steps forward. Once you’ve softened your feet it’s the perfect time to get rid of dead skin. Use a pumice stone or foot brush to get rid of dead skin on your heels or any other calluses. If you do this step or just end at the soak always remember to moistures after. Natural moisturizers like coconut oil or shea butter are a great way to lock in soft skin.

Make Your Own Spa Water And Tea

If you’re hosting your own spa night, especially if you’re having friends over, spa water is a must. Simply fill up a large pitcher of water with your favorite spa flavors. Classic flavors like mint, citrus and cucumbers are crowd pleasers but feel free to add whatever fruits and herbs you like best. Serve a hot option as well with herbal tea or hot water with lemon and honey.
