Creating a Spa-Worthy Retreat at Home

Prepare for Self-Care

Where did January go? With the new year in full swing, it’s easy to focus on crushing that day-to-day hustle, allowing self-care to fall by the wayside. But, as they say, you can’t take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself! Feeling mentally frazzled, emotionally drained, or physically spent? That changes today!

Ready to reset and refresh? No need to book an expensive spa treatment! Scroll on to read our tips for creating a spa-worthy retreat in your very own bathroom.

Simple Celebrations

No matter where you are in life, it’s never too early or too late to celebrate the place you’re in, and we find the best reward is relaxation. Kick off that self-care routine by drawing yourself a hot bath and lighting a beautifully-scented candle.

No luxurious bath is complete without oils, bubbles, salts, or a bath bomb! Don’t forget to grab a good book (or tablet so you can binge that latest Netflix series), and be sure to invest in a sturdy bath caddy strong enough to keep your bath essentials high and dry.

Tranquil Ambience

It’s time to zen out! Bring the spa home by creating small moments of tranquility through the use of fresh flowers and greenery, ceramic vases, and natural sponges.

A friendly reminder to stock up on plush white towels and a lightweight, cozy robe to snuggle up in before and after you hit the bubbles!

Stylish Indulgences

Time to treat yo’ self! Prepare your favorite indulgences including wine, a cheese tray, and macarons. May we suggest a crisp, bubbly rosé?

Take your time gathering up beautiful wine glasses and serving pieces. We love this walnut cheese board – no need to skimp on presentation just because you’re the only one seeing it!

Relaxing Essentials

Don’t let all that self-care end when your bath does! Invigorate your skin with a soothing three-step routine. Begin by cleansing and exfoliating, prepping your skin to absorb the luscious products to follow. Then apply your favorite serum.

Whether it’s full of vitamin C or hyaluronic acid, choose a mixture that best fits your skin’s needs. Layer moisturizer over your serum to lock in all the glow-boosting goodness. If you’re really fighting winter dryness, begin your routine with a sheet mask and then, as your final step, slather on a thicker mask that can soak in overnight.

We hope you’re feeling inspired to get home and unwind! Not quite there yet? Scroll on for spa-style bathrooms from our portfolio that are sure to do the trick. Don’t forget to drop us a note below with your favorite self-care routine!
