Discover how to pamper yourself beautiful from the comfort of your own home…
As much as we all love the idea of enjoying the luxury of a spa, our schedules and budgets may not always allow us to go all out with posh pampering weekends away. However, that doesn’t mean that we don’t all deserve to treat our bodies to a little TLC when a hard week of work is up. Sometimes, sparking up your favourite candle, dimming the lights, running a hot aromatic bath and smothering your strands in a rejuvenating hair masque is all you need to feel and look your best. If you’re looking for inspiration for creating your very own at-home spa day, spoil yourself rotten this spring with our top five rejuvenating beauty buys.
Gold Collagen Hydrogel Mask
A spa day wouldn’t be complete without a revitalising facial that strips your skin of all the nasties, while putting the goodness back in. We love Gold Collagen’s Hydrogel Mask, which has been formulated to fit the contours of the face with the utmost comfort. This deeply-soothing mask kicks off with a cooling sensation, followed by a nourishing burst of hydration, that instantly plumps and perfects the skin. Leave on for up to 40-minutes for the best-results, so find a cosy spot to relax while your skin renews.
Origins Clear Improvements Detoxifying Charcoal Body Scrub
Over time, our bodies tend to gather dead skin and debris that can block pores if neglected. Origins Clear Improvements Detoxifying Charcoal Body Scrub has been made with sea salt and brown sugar which exfoliates the skin. The bamboo charcoal in this hard-working body scrub tackles tough-to-get-rid-off dirt by gently polishing away. While the clove and wintergreen diffuses a fresh aroma that just smells spa-like.
Aveda Beautifying Composition
There’s nothing more comforting on the skin than an aromatic, body oil after dipping into a hot and steamy bath. Our current favourite is Aveda’s Beautifying Composition, a conditioning body oil that contains a natural blend of jojoba oil and rosemary and bergamot essences. Massage this restorative body oil on to your skin for head-to-toe to sooth dryness and leave skin feeling soft to the touch like never before.
Lush Golden Egg Bath Bomb
Whoever said Easter eggs are just for kids, didn’t get the memo about this British beauty brand’s latest launch. Cue the Lush Golden Egg Bath Bomb, a glistening treat that is packed with sweet wild orange and cocoa butter, amongst other indulgent ingredients. Drop one of these into your bath tub for an instant hit of hydration and radiant skin that’s perfect for basking in the spring sunshine.
Phytospecific Curl Hydration Masque 200ml
Made for naturally curly hair types, Phytospecific’s Curl Hydration Masque will not only save you a trip to the spa, but the hair salon too. A deep-moisturising treatment, this hair healer includes natural active ingredients such as Mango Oil, Hibiscus and Plantain which help hydrate, repair and protect Afro hair from damage. What’s more, using this curl-perfecting product once a week can improve the manageability and elasticity of your strands over time.
