There's nothing quite like a visit to a spa. Lounging in the steam room, relaxing in the sauna, inhaling the soothing scents of essential oils. The plush towels, the fluffy robes and the quiet!
Oh the quiet.
The downside - nobody has the time for that, nor the cash. So instead, why not schedule in one day a week when you transform your regular bath experience into the full luxurious version.
Fancy giving it a try? Try these at-home spa tips and also sweet products.
Firstly, switch off the lights so you're in natural light only. If it’s too dim, light a candle (or three).
Run a steaming hot bath and allow the steam to fill the bathroom. The steam will boost your body temperature which will increase circulation. You’ll also start to sweat which can help the skin to release toxins.

Once that's removed it's time to dry yourself off. Don't scrub - just dab - and then, when you're almost dry slather yourself in a quality body oil. Try SALT By Hendrix Body Oil, $39.95.
There - you've just five-starred spa yourself in the comfort of your own home. All you have to do now is relax.
Next, exfoliation. You can do this in the bath, or hop into the shower briefly.
Start at the feet and work your way up using firm, circular movements.This will deep cleanse skin and remove any rough and/or dry patches. Try C Lab & Co Coffee Scrub, $19.99.
Shower or bathe the grains away and then, it's time for a face (possibly also body) mask. We recommend a clay-based mask so you feel genuinely luxurious.
