Want to pamper yourself after a long week of work? Treat yourself to a nice spa at home! Yes, you read that right! You can experience a relaxing spa even when you're at home! Here is the ultimate spa routine that will leave you relaxed and feeling as smooth as a baby's but!
1. Enjoy a warm bath/shower
Relax your muscles and skin with a warm 5-minute shower/bath. This can elevate your mood and relieve muscle pain. This is a great routine whenever you feel stressed and tired after a long day of work.
A warm bath is also beneficial to your skin as it softens dead skin cells and dirt, and loosens up hair follicles. This is the best skin prep before you exfoliate and shave.
2. Deeply exfoliate your body and face
Exfoliation removes dirt and dead skin cells that cause dryness, itchiness, and acne. After exfoliating, you will definitely feel refreshed because your skin is now clearer and smoother.
Massaging your skin with the exfoliating glove also helps your body flush out toxins. Whenever you massage your body, the circulation of blood and lymph fluids increases--helping your body remove body wastes from within. Through exfoliation, you are cleansing the inside and outside of your body.
Use the CheekyGlo Exfoliating Glove for your body and the Silk Mitt for your face. The glove is made with viscose fabric, which is perfect for deep exfoliation. Meanwhile, our face mitt is made with 100% Turkish silk, which is gentle yet effective in removing dead skin. Exfoliate using these tools once or twice a week for better results.
Now that your skin is already clean and exfoliated, this is the best time to shave your hair! Apply shaving cream or oil, and gently shave in the direction of hair growth. Having shaved skin gives a relaxing and refreshing feeling because your skin becomes clearer and smoother.
4. Use a face mask
The best time to use a face mask is right after a shower or bath! This is because your skin is ready to soak up all the nutrients you give it, especially after an exfoliation session!
Pro tip: Store your face mask in the fridge for a few minutes before using it, so that it gives a cooling experience! The coolness of the mask relaxes facial muscles and relieves stress.
5. Massage your body with oil
Release the tension in your body by massaging it with oil. Using an oil prevents friction when massaging, and it lets your hands move with ease on the skin.
Use our CheekyGlo Juicy Peach Body Oil to nourish your skin! Not only does it hydrates and relaxes the skin, but it also helps reduce stretch marks, wrinkles, and more!
Create a relaxing environment by diffusing an essential oil or scented candle in your room. Keep the environment around you beautifully scented, so you can have a relaxing rest of the day.
Aromatherapy reduces stress, anxiety, and discomfort. This is perfect when you are meditating, reading a book, or just having a me-time in your bedroom.
