Here’s how to give yourself a DIY spa pampering.

You may not be able to visit your favorite day spa right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do some self-pampering in the comfort of your own home.

Set the Scene

Give yourself an hour or so to totally indulge your senses to get the benefits of a pampering treatment at home. Setting the mood with scented candles and relaxing music is a must. Follow my steps…

1. Start with a soak in the tub- it’s like a mini holiday for the body and mind as it encourages you to relax. Adding a few drops of Revive Palo Alto Essential Oil, $18,will help melt away tension and mind chatter as it’s packed with soothing compounds like limonene, α-terpineol, and Carvone.

2. Giving yourself a mini- facial while you soak is ideal as the steam opens pores, allowing skin-care to be easily absorbed. Cleanse with a gentle cream cleanser, exfoliate and apply a mask for your skins concerns. A clay mask will draw out impurities, a gel texture will firm and a creamy texture will hydrate. Try, DefenAge 2-Minute Reveal Masque, $74, which is a facial in a tube!

3. While your mask is on, exfoliate your body with a salt scrub high in magnesium and minerals to further relax muscles, remineralizes skin and speed up the release toxins.
