Hey y’all! Happy Wednesday! In case you didn’t know, my new posting schedule is every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss a post. And let’s jump into my top spa night beauty essentials.
Lately has been a little emotionally rough for me if I’m being honest. There’s been a ton of adjusting to new environments and and miscellaneous stress, so I’m starting to see the importance of really taking care of yourself. I’m ready to start working out again, eating better, and trying to take care of my body (inside and out)! I’m already a huge advocate of regular, relaxing “spa” nights, but I’ve found it extremely helpful when anxiety kicks in. So these are my top essentials for my at home spa night – which I may or may not have used right before writing this.
1. Exfoliate. I bought a dry brush! I found one on amazon (it’ll be in the slider below) shipped next day prime for under $8. In addition to exfoliation, it’s supposed to be great for circulation and detoxification, which is great. If you don’t have a dry brush, I’ll put some of my favorite body scrubs etc in the slider as well.
2. Turn off the lights and light some candles! This one is an Easter candle my mom sent me (Thanks, Mom!) and it smells amazing. I don’t find anything more relaxing than sitting in the dark with a candle lit! So peaceful! There’s also an amazing body butter in this photo since lotion is necessary after all that exfoliating! This one was a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law, and I always prefer body butters over traditional lotions.
3. Two Words – Epsom Salts. I use some lavender essential oil scented epsom salts that I buy in huge bags from the drugstore. They smell amazing and epsom salts have a ton of skin and detoxificating benefits! It’s supposed to help with sore muscles or discomfort and I rarely take a bath without them. Unscented ones still have the same benefits! Throw in some bubbles too! I love the aromatherapy bubble baths from Bath & Body Works.. but who doesn’t?
4. Face Masks! I also love to wear a face mask when I take a bath as a jump start to my cleansing routine. This one was super affordable from the drugstore and I use it a ton and still have over half the bottle left. Talk about a value!
This was one of my longer posts in a while, but I feel so strongly about having a good pamper routine! Share your essentials in the comments!
