As a mom of three going to the spa once a week or once a month is something that is just not possible. However, this doesn’t mean that I don’t take the time to relax. In fact, I create my own spa days at home quite a lot. Today, I am going to share with you some of the ways that I create my own relaxing spa day (or night) at home.

#1 Make Sure the Kids Are Gone or Sleeping

Did a relative take the kids for the weekend or are they hanging out with their other parent for a few hours? If so, it’s the perfect time for you to pamper yourself. You don’t even have to leave the house to do so. AND to be honest, the kids don’t even have to be gone. I have had spa nights before when I am working late and the boys are sleeping.

The key is, to make sure the kids are gone or sleeping because let’s face it, that’s the only way you are going to have uninterrupted pampering.

#2 Make Sure You Have Your Supplies

If you know you want to pamper yourself, make sure that you have your supplies beforehand so you don’t have to make any store runs. You can order basically everything that you could possibly need for your spa day (or night) from a website such as Notino.com. Check out my latest haul from them in my video below.

I personally recommend having a facial mask, lotion, body scrub, your favorite body wash, perfume, lip gloss, mascara, and any other relaxing items that you need to unwind and make yourself feel good.

#3 Start with Your Face

Now, you’ll already know I am in love with my facial masks, so it’s probably no surprise that this is the first thing that I start with when I am pampering myself at home.

Currently, I’m using the Uriage Hyséac Cleaning and Soothing Face Mask for Pore Tightening. With this specific mask, you only leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes, but if you prefer, you can use a different mask for a longer time depending on the skin benefits that you are trying to achieve. If you want to get fancy feel free to lay down with some cucumbers on your eyes as well.

#4 Move on to Your Body

Next, when it’s time for me to wash off my facial mask and reveal my smoother skin, I like to just go ahead and jump in the shower with my favorite body wash and body scrub.

Currently, I’m using the Avon Planet Spa Fantastically Firming Body Scrub with Extracts of Coffee. Since it’s a spa day (or night) while in the shower I’ll go ahead and get my shaving out the way as well so I’ll be in there for about 10 or 15 minutes just enjoying the warmth of the water.

Additionally, if you have a towel warmer or remember to warm up some towels in the dryer beforehand, it can be a great experience, especially during the cooler winter months.

#5 Time for Your Feet

I’ll be honest and tell you that during the winter months I don’t pay as much attention to my feet as I do during the summertime. I usually only get professional pedicures at the most once a month. So, during the other weeks, I like to do some basic maintenance at home myself.

Recently, I added the Argan Oil Pack Moisturizer Socks to my routine and I would highly recommend them.

However, before using them, once out the shower, in my shower dress, and with dry feet, I like to use the Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Foot File followed by a pumice stone to try and get my feet in a somewhat smooth position to reap the maximum amount of benefits from the socks.

#6 Get Cute

Either once you are done with your foot routine, or if like me you use some moisturizing socks (put socks over the booties so you can walk more comfortably), while you are waiting for your foot routine to be finished, start getting cute. Yes, even if you don’t plan to go anywhere.

Usually, I don’t wear a ton of makeup, but I will use a mascara such as the Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara for Volume and Separation of Lashes that I am wearing in the photo below and my lip gloss.

Recently, I was able to try the Bourjois 3D Effect Gloss Lip Gloss, but it wasn’t glossy enough for me, so I use it as more of a lip balm when around the house (see photo below).

But, once you get cute (even if just for yourself) you will feel better. Trust me I know!

#7 Spray on Perfume

The final way that I end up my spa day (or night) is by spraying on my favorite perfume. Right now, I am in love with the Jimmy Choo Blossom Eau De Parfum Tester for Women and the Bath & Body Works Secret Wonderland Body Spray for Women as they both smell amazing.

Closing Thoughts on Having a Spa Day (or Night) at Home

In my opinion, all women deserve to have a spa day (or night) at home at least once a month at the minimum. It’s a great way to kick back, relax, and pamper yourself. We may not always have time to go to the spa, but that’s okay because it’s cheaper and more relaxing to do it from the comfort of your home.

    With me it’s all about my feet. If they are spoiled, the rest of me feels fantastic.

  4. Yolanda says:

      Thank you.

    After being sick the past 4 weeks I need a spa night more than anything! I actually was planning something for last night but I felt too tired to get up and put everything together. Maybe tonight?

    1. admin says:

      Sara,

      I hope you are able to get a spa night soon. It’s the perfect way to reenergize after being sick.

  7. aziel morte says:

    Having a spa day at home can be just as relaxing and beautifying as a day. It’s better to use plain water so there won’t be residue on your fingers when you paint them.

  8. My Teen Guide says:

    I love the night! The moment adds up to the relaxing mood!

  9. Emma Spellman says:

    I totally love spa days at home although it has been awhile since I had one. Me in the tubs at 2am praying my toddlers boys don’t wake up for anything! I need to plan one this week!

  10. Subscription boxes are so much fun! It looks like there are a lot of great things in there!

  11. This reminds me that I need to do something about my crazy dry feet. It has been a few weeks since I have given them some TLC.

    A spa night at home just sounds super relaxing.

  12. Kathy says:

    I think this is a great idea. Being able to stay home and make it a spa day would help save money too. I need to do something like this soon.

  13. Maria han says:

    Between the economy going bust and the holidays looming ahead, a relaxing day at the spa has never looked so tempting—or so not-unless-I-stop-eating expensive.

  14. Chrishelle Ebner says:

    I so need a spa day. I booked one during our vacation in May, but I think I am in need of some TLC during a home spa day. Great tips for relaxing, thanks.

  15. HilLesha says:

    I love having relaxing “spa days” at home. They’re often the perfect antidote after a long day (or week)!

  16. rika says:

    I love Spa at home. I love bubble bath, listening to my favorite songs and drinking a glass of wine!

  17. Spa days at home are soooo pocket friendly! Save that coin girlll!

    1. admin says:

      Yasss! And they can be just as good as going to the spa.

  18. Ali Rost says:

    So timely .. what a week it’s been! A spa day at home sounds like an absolute dream. My list would include a face mask .. bubble bath and a glass of wine!

    1. admin says:

      Ali,

      How could I forget the best part? Wine is definitely a must have or a cocktail.

  19. Everything in this box sounds amazing. This is what I need a spa night at home.

  20. Oh, I could so use a relaxing at-home spa day! Thanks for the ideas and suggestions – even a simple mask would do it for me.

  21. Karissa says:

    My must haves are a bubble bath, music, lavender and phone in the other room! These look like nice products for relaxing too!

  22. Definitely gotta get rid of the hubby and kids when you have a spa day at home! Those are the exact steps I take too!

  23. Joely Smith says:

    I agree! We all deserve to treat ourselves. When we take care of ourselves we are better for everyone else!

  24. I need to take the kids out to a movie and something to eat so my wife can do this. I’ll have to show this to her and then rake in the brownie points. 😉

    1. admin says:

      Bill,

      That would be an awesome plan. You will definitely get some brownie points.

  25. Oh my gosh, I LOVE this! I’m going to send my husband and the kids off to a movie and then mom is going to have herself a nice relaxing spa evening.

    1. admin says:

      Stacie,

      That sounds like an awesome plan.
