Rough day at the office? Possibly you are exhausted after studying for a challenging exam. Then you may need a home spa day!
Sometimes we need a complete body makeover to feel like ourselves again.
After all, when you look good, you feel good.
Have a DIY Home Spa Day is perfect for an affordable way to pamper yourself without spending money at the spa.
We have below everything that you need to have a home spa day!
Having a Home Spa Day requires three fundamental steps.
Step 1: Bath Time Relaxation
The first step on the Step by Step Guide to a Home Spa Day is Bath time relaxation.
Something about soaking in a bath with a glass of wine while relaxing music is playing in the background is an unforgettable experience.
Don’t forget to add a bath bomb and a few candles to enhance the relaxing ambiance in the bathroom.
Why Bath Time Relaxation is so Important?
Sometimes, with life becoming so busy, it is hard to get time in for ourselves.
A hectic schedule makes bathtime all the more critical to have a relaxing moment for ourselves with no worries or stress.
So make sure to tell the family, roommate, and kids – no disruptions during ‘my bath time relation.’
The Essentials for a Relaxing Bath Time Experience:
• Glass of Wine or Cup of Tea
Of legal drinking age? If so, a glass of wine is a great way to add relaxation to your day.
Sipping slowly on wine while soaking in the hot bathtub screams relaxation.
However, if you are not of drinking age or want to skip alcohol intake, then a nice steamy cup of tea is just as great.
Tea is a great stand-alone drink, or you can create your own tea latte with a few added flavors.
• Bath Bombs
Adding bath bombs is a great way to add bubbles and a relaxing scent.
Bath bombs can come in a variety of different scents allowing you to find a scent that relaxes you. According to, The Sleep Doctor, the most relaxing scents are:

There are so many different types of candles.
One’s that float in the bathtub, while others allow you to place them around the bathroom.
Then you have the choice of wick-burning or battery operated candles.
Let’s not even get into the unlimited number of candle scents.
Whichever type of candle you choose allows you to turn off the lights, get in the bath and enjoy peaceful moments alone.
• Bath Board
A bath board can make bath time relaxing as you can place a candle or a glass of wine on it.
The best part is with a bath board, you bring your book or magazine and flip through it.
If reading calms and relaxes you, then having a book is a must for your bath time relaxation.
Just pick out your favorite book, and you are ready to chill.
• Calming Music
The only thing left is relaxing music!
Play your favorites while you soak up your bath time.
Step 2: Beauty Prep
The second step on our Step by Step DIY Home Spa Day is a beauty prep.
There are many ways to look good without spending money at the spa and salon. Below is a list of a few at-home beauty tips and tricks that allow you to pamper yourself.
Go ahead and pamper yourself. You deserve to look good and feel good.
Beauty Essential Prep List
• Teeth Whitening Strips
Teeth Whitening Strips should be one of the first things to start with since it takes time for the teeth whitening strips to work.
Just place a whitening strip on the teeth per instructions on the box and start checking off the following items from your list.
• Foot Scrubber
If callused feet are a struggle, then a good foot scrubber will remove all the excess skin, allowing for soft, gentle feet.
• Shave Legs
Freshly shaved, smooth legs are a great feeling to have. Grab that razor and shaving cream, and get it, girl.
• Home Facial
Everyone has a different facial method that best fits their skin needs.
Some use mud masks, others use a lotion, and some make homemade facial scrubs. Whichever facial cleanser you choose is OK, as long as it makes you feel better about your skin.
• Oil & Lotion
Oil and lotions are a great way to keep the skin soft, smooth, and moisturized. Plus, it adds a delightful natural scent after a long, relaxing bath.
• Nail Polish
If your nails are already good, you go, girl.
Suppose they need a bit of work. That’s OK.
Just strip off the polish with some fingernail polish remover and add a fresh coat of nail polish.
Having freshly done nails is a great feeling!
• Stylize Hair
The best part of a spa day is wanting to take the time to look and feel good.
Take some time and watch a few YouTube video’s on how to style hair differently than regularly.
Having your hair styled differently allows a feeling of looking different than expected. You may find the new hairstyle makes you feel elegant and beautiful.
It’s also a great way to play with different hair-dos.

The crazy part about makeup is that it can transform your appearance into looking like someone entirely different. It is the craziest thing.
