In today’s busy world, it really is no surprise that so many people struggle with “burnout.” You know, that overwhelming feeling of stress and anxiety when life gets busy and you don’t take time out to care for yourself.
Many of us rely on caffeine to get us through our day or book ourselves in for a much-needed facial only when life already feels too challenging.
But who’s to say you can’t swap these temporary high’s for a regular pamper session, that’ll have you feeling chilled out before you feel overwhelmed?
Sounds good, doesn’t it? In this article, we’ll share our 5 step self-care checklist for the perfect refreshing spa night at home.
Step 1: Get sipping
We aren’t judging if a glass of the good stuff is in order, but we also highly recommend this delicious, soothing glass of lavender fizz that will leave you feeling blissed out without any alcohol! Just one little substitution we’d make… swap out the sugar for maple syrup or stevia to taste.
A “swiss army knife of home remedies,” lavender is one of the best companions for insomnia, anxiety, depression, stress, and more. Just make sure you make enough for your friends!
Step 2: Create an ambient atmosphere
Forget loud, club music.
Set the mood with soothing tunes (perhaps a little Sade?) that will help you to loosen those shoulders, unclench that jaw and breathe a deep sigh of relief.
There are loads of chill playlists on Spotify so you’re sure to find one everyone can vibe with.
Step 3: Ditch the clothes
Okay, don’t panic!
We don’t mean go nude, but rather get rid of those tight skinny jeans, kick off those heels and say adios to your bra!
Make it a requirement for everyone to don only comfy pj’s or a robe and fluffy slippers!
You can’t truly unwind when you feel uncomfortable so be sure to wear your most comfy clothes!
Step 4: Have fun
This is a spa night, yes, but it’s also a night to catch up with your favorite people and just let loose a little.
So find fun ways to pamper each other from head to toe, from face masks to pedicures!
We also highly recommend whipping up this decadent chocolate scrub that is completely natural so you can actually lick it off your fingers!
Step 5: Indulge your skin
Be sure to include at least one skin care product that is a pure luxury for your skin like our Skin Superfood Serum, an absolute treat for your skin! Brimming in active plant-based botanicals, antioxidants, and fatty acids, this serum heals, repairs and beautifully brightens the skin! You will feel like a glowing goddess when you use this regularly!
Make a spa night part of your weekly or monthly ritual and just notice how you feel. You and your friends will have something wonderful to look forward to, especially on
those challenging days!
Self-care is about taking time out every day to show yourself some love, so while you’re waiting on your spa night, find little things that will help you to relax and will put a smile back on that beautiful face!
