Home Spa in San Antonio, TX

Sometimes you need to take a break but you don't have the time or money to go on a vacation or leave for the spa for the day. When that's the case, you can bring the spa to you. It's a much more affordable and convenient way to relax and it can refresh you to face the next day. Here are a few ways to have a DIY spa day from your own home:

Create the Atmosphere

Let your friends and family know that you need to take a day for yourself. If you have kids, see if your spouse can take care of them for the day. And don't forget to turn your phone off — your Facebook notifications can wait until tomorrow. Once everyone has agreed to give you space for the day, work on your own mindset. Break out your comfy robe, your favorite wine, and your most relaxing music. Light candles and let the scent fill the room. Let your shoulders start to loosen up and prepare to treat yourself.

Homemade Rose Water and More

Rose water has excellent, proven benefits for your skincare. It helps to maintain your pH balance, moisturizes the skin, heals cuts and bruises, and has even been shown to elevate the mood. Rose water is commonly used in professional spas, but you can make your own easily. It's just a combination of rose petals and water. You can easily find online tutorials that tell you how to create a jar of your own, which can be used in the bath or as a spray to treat your skin.

Rose water not your thing? You can also find tips on blending essential oils, creating a mud mask, cucumber eye gel, or nourish your hair with a DIY hair mask. If you don't want to DIY, you can also buy bath bombs from a bath store and take two slices from an actual cucumber to refresh the circles under your eyes.

Foot Baths and Face Massages

You can buy a foot bath online, but if you don't have one, even a bucket or bowl filled with hot water will suffice. When your feet are comfortable and relaxed, that feeling spreads throughout your body. Let your feet have a rest, and maybe even throw in a DIY mani-pedi to continue treating yourself.

While you might not have a professional masseuse with you, you can massage your face after you rinse off your face mask with ease. Rub a dime of skincare product in your palms and then start to massage it into your face, starting by sliding your hands up and down your brows and forehead, then under the eyes, and finally your jawline and neck. Be careful to avoid the eyes.

And, Of Course, No Spa Day Is Complete Without…

A spa! With a home spa, you can end the spa day by taking your fluffiest towel with you to the backyard and soaking for a while. With the warm water and adjustable pressure from the jets, you can lean back and let the stress roll right off you. In fact, with a home spa, even if you don't have time for a full spa day, you can still ensure that you get some relaxation in at the end of a rough day. Trust us, you don't want to skip this step.
