The first thing – and the easiest thing to get is a sheet mask. A sheet mask is a mask of paper-thin consistency that you put on your face, covering your entire face with holes for your eyes and mouth. They are available in almost hundreds of designs, colors, flavors, and accents. Whatever your skin needs are, chances are, there are more than ten sheet masks that cater to this requirement. So put on your sheet mask, and settle down for the other must-haves for a budget spa day!
No spa day is complete without scented candles lining up your high shelves or on the floor, or maybe around the rim of your tub. The benefits of aromatherapy in a spa have been long touted, and now, you can bring them home with these little candles! You can not only pick a scent that you like, but you can also use the candle outside of the home-made spa! Science says that certain flowery scents do the trick in relaxing you, but hey, this is your spa day, and you make the call!
We bathe in water every day – nothing new about it. So let’s spice it up with a vibrantly colorful bath bomb! As the name suggests, a bath bomb will literally cause an explosion of freshness and vibrancy in your bathtub. All you need to do is unwrap it and toss it in the tub. In seconds, your regular bath water will be pouring over with various shades. You can purchase them in sets or one at a time. Available in multiple size and color variants, a bath bomb is a cheap investment that will make a massive difference in your spa day.
Now that the bath is ready let’s jump in with a body brush! An exfoliator is a device used to clean off dead skin, dirt, and grime from your skin before shower or dipping into the tub. key is to use it gently but in circular, repetitive actions. Rub too hard or too much, and you can risk rashes and redness. Use in moderation, and you’ll be walking out with the smoothest skin ever! We recommend using a moisturizer later on to set that effect in place.
