Fresh Towels and Sheets

We will feel confident lying on beautifully fresh sheets after we have just bathed and scrubbed. We may even find we sleep better! If you have guests or friends joining you for your stay-at-home spa day, pick up a few extra towels or suggest that they bring their own favorite.
Plan Your Treatments
Before you rush out and buy any extra beauty supplies, think carefully about what your “treatments” will be. Do you plan to give yourself a facial, for example? Be sure to check the bathroom cabinet for a suitable cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. You may want to add a gentle exfoliator or serum to the routine. But the only extra item you’ll really need is steam! Run a sink full of hot water and lean over it with freshly cleansed skin. Your pores will be open and easier to cleanse of impurities.

Complete silence can be a luxury for those who are used to demanding or noisy workplaces. But it is also easy to become drawn into our own anxieties and worrying thoughts when it is silent. If you are concerned about this, try adding some gentle soothing music in the background. Many people favor nature sounds such as gentle wind, the sound of the sea, or ambient forest sounds. You can find some great examples online. Songs with lyrics or a heavy beat can tend to wake us up when we’re trying to unwind! Use sound to help you drift into a space of peace and relaxation.
