5 Self-Care Essentials that Bring the Spa to You!

January 14, 2021

The thing about spa day? It's not frivolous.

Would you consider purchasing high-quality groceries reckless? Is it "splurging" if you buy fitness equipment, or a gym membership? Wouldn't you consider these to be worthwhile investments in a healthy lifestyle?

Oxidative stress is directly linked to higher mortality rates and illness, so don't kid yourself—a "mental health day" can be every bit as necessary as a "sick day." Factoring in recent events (like a global pandemic), a spa day is exactly what the doctor ordered.

Today, we're sharing five simple ways to create a full-fledged spa day at home. Go ahead and treat yourself to some much-needed pampering!

5 Self-Care Products that Bring the Spa to You! Make sure to make time for YOU! | Monsuri

1. Soak Stress Away

Is there anything better than a long, hot bath? Research suggests that taking hot baths regularly results in a lower risk of cardiovascular events, so light some candles and run the water!

The best thing about bath time is that it can be tailored to fit yourtaste. For example, are you a bath reader? Do you enjoy a glass of wine to unwind? How about watching your favorite Netflix show beneath the bubbles?

A high-end bath caddy is perfect for keeping all of your bath time favorites close at hand for the ultimate home bath spa experience. Keep your book, wine glass, and tablet all within easy reach, and enjoy every second of at-home spa time.

2. Drop a Bomb...the Good Kind!

When you set the mood, it's easy to envision your bath to be an extension of the spa. Why not take it one step further and elevate the experience with a luxurious bath bomb?

Bath bombs are a highly sensory bathing accessory. Enjoy the feel of foam against your skin, breathe in a calming scent, and anchor yourself in the present moment. After all, who would want to be anywhere else during spa time?

3. Bed, Bath, & Bliss

Hot baths are wonderful all on their own, but consider some other elements of the spa that you love. Hands-down, plush pillows and cushions contribute to an ideal spa experience.

...What if you could transform your bath into a bed?

We're not just talking about neck and shoulder cushions—though those are pretty great, too. We're talking about a full-body bath pillow, so you can reap the benefits of a relaxing bath without the discomfort of a hard tub floor. This is one essential home spa accessory to rival any in-spa experience!

4. Recreate the Sweet Smell of Spa Day

Scent can be a powerful mood trigger, and can even promote relaxation and sleep. What better way to treat yourself than by breathing in the soothing smells of spa day?

If you follow your bath with a shower, take spa time to the next level with calming eucalyptus shower steamers. Eucalyptus and camphor work to sharpen your senses, while underlying scents of lavender, grapefruit, peppermint serve as mood-enhancers.

Clear mental fog with revitalizing shower steamers, and emerge from your tub feeling totally restored.

5. Self-Care & Skincare

 Bubbles? Check. Soothing scents? Check.

...How about skincare?

Skin becomes dull and dehydrated quickly, especially when spa day isn't on the calendar. A quality body scrub is perfect for exfoliating dead skin, allowing your natural beauty to radiate from the inside out.

Before moisturizing, enjoy the grainy texture of a sugar scrub as you nourish your skin. There's no better way to get that "spa day glow" than by exfoliating!

Bottom line: the most important part of recreating spa day at home is surrounding yourself with little luxuries that help you relax. Whether it's twenty minutes or two hours, your bathroom canbe every bit as much the escape you need as the spa.
