After a long day, all I want to do is come home and relax and enjoy some ‘me time’. Today was an especially long day so when I got home I needed to indulge in my at-home spa night routine to unwind and take the day off. Check out my routine for a chill spa night at home!
LIGHT A CANDLE
Having scents in my home really sets my mood and puts me into a relaxing state of mind. I have nearly a dozen different candles around the house of various scents but this Japanese water lily scent from Target is my favorite. I let this permeate the air for a few minutes to instantly leave my stress at bay.
PUT ON A ROBE
When I’m relaxing at home, my favorite thing to wear is a big, comfy robe. I think I like wearing robes because they feel like a blanket but with the mobility of a belt. Today I’m wearing one of my favorites from The Westin and I especially like that it has a hood and pockets. Funny story–whenever I’m missing something (iPhone, camera memory card, etc.) I typically check my robe pockets first!
PUT ON A RELAXING PLAYLIST
I’ve been a Spotify user for years now and love all of the various playlists they have for every mood and setting. Today I’m choosing the ‘Boho + Chill’ playlist while I fix myself a cup of green tea.
CLEANSE MY SKIN
Taking off my makeup and cleaning my skin at the end of the day is the most amazing feeling. Taking off the day’s makeup and dirt is key to deep cleaning your pores and prepping skin for night time skincare. If you follow me on Snapchat, you’ve seen that I’ve been looking for the Bioré Baking Soda Cleaning Scrub and I’ve finally found it to test it out! This cleanser is a powder form and features the bubbling power of baking soda to naturally cleanse pores to remove stuck makeup and oil–especially for my combination skin. As part of my spa-night experience, I opted to make my cleaning experience a bit more fancy. I put some powder into a little dish, added a splash of water to activate, and used a fan brush to apply it to my skin for a nice even application (you can also add directly to wet skin). I like that this scrub doesn’t actually feel like an abrasive scrub but exfoliates with the fizz. I love how smooth my skin feels afterwards! Once I applied it all over my face with fan brush (or fingers!) I gently massaged into my skin in circular motions, and rinsed off.
My skin is always thirsty after a day of wearing makeup so I follow my cleaning routine with vitamin C serum, eye cream, and a rich moisturizer so my skin can drink up while I sleep.
What steps do you guys include in your spa-night at home routine? I’m always looking for something new to integrate into my chill-out routine.
