Picture this - the relaxing fragrance of essential oils is wafting through a dimly lit room as soft, calming music plays in the background. Amid the ambience is you, indulging in a soothing, relaxing full body massage. Isn't it a truly mesmerising experience? We're sure after reading this, your inner spa lover is eagerly waiting to hit the salon to relive the rejuvenating experience. But considering the current scenario and safety concerns, visiting the salon for a body spa seems like a far-fetched dream. So, what's the next best solution? How about recreating your favourite experience by getting a home spa? Wondering how? We're here to show you!
Rebuild the At-Home Spa Experience
Commence that home spa session by setting the mood right. Make sure you are in a relaxed and comfortable environment, for starters. Remember, this is your time to let go of all the worries that you have been carrying on your shoulders throughout the week, and give yourself some time to unwind and de-stress. So, you need to make a conscious effort to make sure that everything you do leads to ultimate relaxation. To begin with, unplug all your devices to put aside all the distractions for a moment. Release your favourite essential oils into the air. You can choose anything that relaxes you, be it- lavender, rosemary, or any other oil. Make sure your lights are dim. Pro tip: Use scented candles. Not only do they release a pleasant aroma into the air but also set the mood right. Tune in a melodious, calming playlist that will soothe your senses. Instrumental piano tunes or mellow incantations do the job brilliantly. Slip into something loose and easy, like an oversized t-shirt or a bathrobe, and get ready to sit back, relax and enjoy your at-home spa day.
A Step-By-Step Guide to a Full Body Spa at Home
Start your body spa at home with a warm, relaxing shower first. Gently rinse your body with warm water, and allow the water to repose and loosen you up. Once your body is thoroughly rinsed, squeeze a few drops of the Pure Sense Grapefruit Body Cleansing Gel
, lather it up and gently rub it on your skin. This shower gel replenishes moisture and boosts your skin with the goodness of citrusy Vitamin C. This pure cleansing gel is recommended for all skin types.
Now that your body is thoroughly cleansed and emanating with the fresh smell of grapefruit, you must be feeling good. But is that enough? A weekend pampering sesh is incomplete without thorough exfoliation. To further cleanse your entire body,¬† you can exfoliate it with the Pure Sense Macadamia Moisturising Almond and Walnut Body Scrub. It will not only buff away the dead skin cells gently, but its nutty fresh fragrance will leave you feeling refreshed and clean as ever! Step out of the shower getting the right boost of organic vitamins and minerals that you need from your home spa.

In case you're confused about what candles to use, we've got you covered.¬† The Pure Sense Macadamia Hand-Poured Body Massage Candle is worth getting your hands on. Light up the candle and leave it beside you. Now, sit back, relax and take a few deep breaths.

Don't put it away just yet, because guess what, your spa treatment at home is still going on! Do you know why we recommended this candle? Because it also doubles up as a natural moisturiser.

A Face Spa at Home
Your face does so much throughout the week - maintains those good looks, keeps that smile going, and gives you the beauty you can take credit for. However, this face is also exposed to a lot of factors that can ruin its health, such as a build up of makeup products, and get harmful dirt and pollutants. Since it has gone through so much, it calls for an extra pampering and caring session for the face. So, in case you're looking to get the perfect face spa at home, here's the routine that we recommend-
1. Facial Cleanser
You can begin your¬† home spa cleansing experience with the double cleansing process. Double cleansing is when you go the extra mile to cleanse your face, by using both an oil-based cleanser and¬† a water-based cleanser. Perfect for an at-home spa day, this will doubly and deeply cleanse your face. The Pure Sense Relaxing Macadamia Deep Nourishing Face Cleansing Oil is a good oil-based cleanser to start with. It helps degrease your face, remove makeup residue, dirt, and sebum from your face. Since this is an oil-based cleanser, you can apply it on your dry face, gently massage it for a minute and then add a bit of water to form a lather. Then rinse this off with warm water.
Steam is a vital and one of the most relaxing aspects of getting a face spa at home. Steam helps open up your pores, which allows further exfoliation and smoother application of masks.¬† It also softens the upper layer of your skin, helping the products to evenly spread across the surface. There are several ways to take steam in your home spa. One option is doing it the old-fashioned way. Take a vessel full of boiling water, and sit in front of it, while hovering your face around it. Cover everything from your face to your shoulders with the towel, and let the steam absorb your face. You can also add a relaxing, interesting touch to this method. Mix a few herbs into the concoction, and infuse it with your favourite essential oil, depending on your skin type. For example, you can use tea tree oil for acne-prone skin, lavender oil for oily skin, or rose absolute oil for dry skin. Keep your face a few inches away from the hot vessel, and allow the steam to surround your face for at least 10-15 minutes. Once you're done and you feel completely relaxed and energised, pat dry your face with a soft towel and get ready for the next step of your at-home spa.
3. Exfoliate + Masking
We know that exfoliation and masking requires its own sweet time. But there can be chances where¬† you have a hectic schedule and don't have too much time on your hands to accommodate all of these. We've got an instant solution to problems like these. The Pure Sense Grapefruit Revitalising 3 in 1 Face Mask, Scrub, and Cleanser. This one product is here to make your home spa simpler and convenient while retaining its rejuvenating effects. With this magical product, you can combine three steps of your face spa at home. If you want to cleanse, mask and exfoliate, all in one step- this product is ideal for you. Start by applying some of the product to your dry face and let the mask stay for a few minutes. Once the masking¬† is done, gently rub the product into your skin to exfoliate and scrub off the dead skin cells from your face. This product is enriched with Kaolin clay that goes deep into your pores and helps absorb the dirt, and make your skin smooth. Now that you're done with exfoliation, add some water to your face and cleanse it all up. Enriched with grapefruit and capric triglyceride, the product deeply cleanses your skin and locks in the moisture content.
