We should all take the time regularly to pamper ourselves with an occasional spa night and I think right now during this pandemic, it is more important than ever. If you have been following this blog it’s no surprise that I have been advocating self-care through these trying times. Plan a night to treat your full body to an at-home spa night.
In this article, I will cover everything from hair care to body care and more. Read on to see how you can make the most out of an at-home evening by making it a relaxing at home spa night with these must haves.
After days of dry shampoo, or even more than usual “no wash” days, you may have a bit more build-up than usual. It’s crucial to detox your hair and add back much-needed nourishment. Here are my must haves for your hair that you can use at home during your spa night.
I suggest starting with Royal Spa® Scalp Revival Scrub. Give your shampoo a break and let this unique scrub cleanse and balance your scalp. Formulated with salt granules, this exfoliating formula soothes the scalp by helping to eliminate product buildup and dead skin.
You can use it one to three times a week in place of shampoo.
It’s even safe for color treated hair. It is a sulfate-free hair cleansing product that utilizes salt granules to exfoliate and cleanse the scalp.
Pro Tip: Try to go more days in between shampooing. I have found that most people shampoo their hair way too much which strips natural oils from the hair shaft and scalp which leads to dryer conditions. Your body adjusts, so if you shampoo too often, it will produce more oil to make up for the lack of. It may take a few weeks, but usually your body will balance itself out and produce less oil. Just be patient and give it time, but now is the best time to try it!
Once you detox your hair & scalp, now it’s time to give your hair some TLC. Nourish your hair with Fixx™ Argan Oil Intensive Hair Mask.
Repair and restore dry, damaged locks for healthier-looking hair with Fixx Argan Oil Intensive Hair Mask. Consistent heat styling, products and washing damages the hair cuticle and fiber leaving strands dull, broken and weak. Utilizing Fancorsil® LIM-2 and Botanisil ME-14, this deep-conditioning mask smoothes and repairs damaged hair for increased brilliance and strength. The reparative formula conditions and detangles hair for increased flexibility, texture and color.
Use this intensive mask 2-3 times each week for optimal results. Condition strands regularly in between to maintain moisture for the healthiest of hair.
Pro Tip: If you are pressed for time, use in the shower. After shampooing or using the Scalp Revival Scrub, wring as much water as you can from your hair. Apply Fixx Argan Oil Intensive Hair Mask generously on the ends working up towards your scalp. f you have fine or oily hair, do not apply to the roots or scalp. For thicker or dry hair, apply all over. Massage gently. Comb or rake through starting at hair tips until mask is distributed evenly. Clip your hair on top of your head for the duration of your shower. Let sit for at least 2 to 5 minutes-10 is even better. Rinse with cooler water to seal the hair cuticle.
If you have a bit more time, leave on your hair for the rest of your spa night. The longer this mask is on the better!
When is the last time you exfoliated your entire body? It’s part of the steps to achieve soft smooth skin.
I have personally struggled with skin irritations due to my sensitive skin my entire life. When I tried different body scrubs in the past, they would leave an oily residue on my skin. They would aggravate my skin even more. Here are my must haves for your body that you can use at home during your spa night.
I was thankful to find the Royal Spa Foaming Brown Sugar Body Scrub. Treat yourself to the caramel hues and sugary scent of an enriched formula that features the exfoliating elements of brown sugar crystals and walnut shell powder, and moisture preserving humectants. The best part about this product, is it’s sudsy! It feels like it is cleaning your skin while polishing off all of those dead skin cells.
Royal Spa Foaming Brown Sugar Body Scrub should be used 2-3 times a week in place of a body cleanser.
Take the time to coat yourself with this delicious, soothing scrub made from brown sugar. Trust me, you won’t regret it!
Pro Tip: The Royal Spa Foaming Brown Sugar Body Scrub works great on your feet and hands. Consider adding it into your at home manicure and pedicure!
Now that you have exfoliated your body, it’s crucial to follow up with an intense moisturizer. This is by far my FAVORITE! Lumière de Vie® Intensive Hand & Body Crème, with nutrient-rich ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and sunflower seed oil, this powerful crème helps break the cycle of dryness and dehydration to give skin a new softness and suppleness.
Remember when I mentioned my sensitive skin? Most lotions give me tiny bumps that itch. This one doesn’t! AND it doesn’t feel greasy. It absorbs into the skin and feels AMAZING!
Pro Tip: The best time to moisturize your body is right after your shower-and even better, right after you exfoliate. By removing dead skin cells, your skin is able to absorb more of the skin nourishing ingredients leaving even softer skin!
When you are devoting an entire evening to treating your skin and hair, why not do TWO masks? Here are my must haves masks that you can use at home during your spa night.
First, use the Lumière de Vie Volcanic Exfoliating Mask which is formulated to detoxify, enhance skin’s glow, and dramatically improve tone and radiance. Utilizing rare earth elements and infused with AHA complex and the natural oil-absorbing power of kaolin and bentonite clays, this treatment creates a balanced detoxifying/exfoliating action that leaves skin glowing, revitalized and healthy. This intensive treatment will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as brighten and smooth skin’s texture.
I recommend using Lumière de Vie Volcanic Exfoliating Mask one to two times a week for maximum results.
Pro tip: All you need it a little bit! Be sure to cleanse your skin first. Apply a thin layer of the Lumière de Vie Volcanic Exfoliating Mask, and let dry for about 10 minutes. Get your fingertips wet, and start massaging in a circular motion. You will feel the beads polishing your skin. Rinse away and you will instantly feel smoother skin.
Now it’s time to lock in intense moisture with my favorite sheet mask. The Lumière de Vie® Moisture Intense Facial Masque, is a definitive treatment that is formulated with aloe to intensely moisturize while reducing oxidative damage from the everyday elements. Utilizing the powerful hydrating effects of hyaluronic acid, this specialized facial masque instantly revitalizes dry, aged skin on contact. Incredible skin demands an incredible masque.
Pro Tip: I recommend using this masque at night because the concentrated formula will leave a replenishing treatment on the skin that is to be massaged in. Leaving on overnight will maximize the hydrating benefits of the masque. In the morning you can cleanse skin as part of your daily routine. After cleansing and toning the face, remove the Moisture Intense Facial Masque from its sealed packet and peel the protective film from both sides. Apply directly and evenly onto face and gently tap masque to remove air bubbles. Allow 10-25 minutes for the masque to activate and then gently remove from skin. Lightly massage any remaining product into face. Follow with your favorite moisturizer.
Want to have an even better experience? While your masque is on, roll over it with Lumière de Vie Rose Quartz Roller.
This facial massager utilizes rose quartz, which promotes healing from the inside out, and the calming art of massage to relax the face. Utilize this tool to help aid in the absorption of treatments into the skin, reduce the appearance of puffiness, and signs of aging. This dual sided tool can be used throughout all areas of the face and neck to maximize your daily skincare regimen.
I hope you consider giving yourself a night of pampering. After all, you deserve it!
