If only life was as easy as going to the spa every time you feel exhausted. But the reality is, there are bills to pay and spa treatments can be expensive. So, if you can’t go to the spa, why not bring the spa into your own home? Here are some tricks:
Get your diffuser on.
What comes to your mind first when you think about a spa? That’s right, the relaxing aroma. Spas smell so nice to help clients relax, but you can also do the same with the help of an aromatherapy diffuser from Alcyon. Put the diffuser in your bedroom with your favourite essential oil, crank up some relaxing music, and you’ll instantly feel like you’re in a spa without paying for anything. You’ll also love the many benefits of diffusers, so you might want to make this a habit.

Take out your creams and masks.
If your idea of a spa day involves facials and masks, then it’s time to go shopping for some Korean sheet masks and anti-wrinkle creams that are guaranteed to give you youthful skin before you know it. Get your face mask on and read your favourite book while it does its wonders. After that’s done, lather on your favourite anti-wrinkle cream and maybe, enjoy a cup of hot tea while you wait for it to fully soak in your skin.

Do that bubble bath.
When was the last time you used that bathtub, anyway? If it’s been ages, it’s time to fill that up with water, drop your favourite bath bomb, turn on your diffuser and some music, and soak away as you enjoy a relaxing evening. You could read a book, binge watch your favourite show or just take a nap while you enjoy a long, nice bath. Make that a weekly routine and you’ll surely find yourself more relaxed and refreshed than ever.
Give your hair the royal treatment.
Of course, you can’t forget about your hair that’s probably in dire need of rejuvenation. Choose a hair mask and use a wide-tooth comb to make sure that the product is distributed evenly throughout your hair. Cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic-wrap turban and let it soak in all that moisture back while you enjoy some music or a cup of tea. You can even do this before you get in your tub.
Keep your bliss even for a night.
You can’t spend all that time in a bubble bath and doing treatments and jump right back into your mobile phone or laptop to check emails after. If you really want to relax and recharge, turn off any gadgets and focus on the present. Keep the bedroom cool, listen to some good music while you meditate, watch some TV, and end the night with good sleep. Don’t forget to use your diffuser to make sure that your bedroom is filled with those relaxing aromas while you jet off to dreamland.
Are you ready to relax?
Relaxation doesn’t have to be pricey. If you’re creative enough, there’s a lot of things in your home that could help you get that much-needed day off without feeling guilty about the bills later.
