We don’t know about you, but one of the activities we spend our days dreaming about is a spa trip with the besties! Wrapping ourselves up in fluffy robes and sliding our feet into slippers before making our way down to the pool for a day of relaxation and treatments.
As dreamy as that can be, a spa trip may not always be possible but that doesn’t mean you need to miss out! Create an at-home spa experience with Superdrug and our range of cruelty-free products from setting the scene with candles to treating every part of your body. Here’s what you need to help you find that zen moment without leaving the comfort of your home.
Set the Scene
When you step into a spa you are immediately greeted with a sense of calm, so recreate that atmosphere at home by dedicating a space to relax, this could be in your bedroom on freshly changed sheets or in a hot bubble bath. Once you have your space, light some beautifully scented candles and hit play on your most calming playlist.
Face masks and facials have to be one of the most popular choices when it comes to treatments you can indulge in at the spa. There is a face mask out there for every kind of skin concern, from super hydrating to antioxidant packed formulas to give your skin exactly what it is craving.
Best Foot Forward
We keep our feet hidden in closed toe shoes and socks most of the year, but when it comes to unleashing them to the world when the sun does make an appearance, they may need a little TLC to get them looking their best! To tackle dry skin and cracked heels, slip on our Nourishing Foot Mask to each of your feet and let them work their magic for the duration of your at-home spa session. The deeply moisturising ingredients will ensure your feet are looking just as pretty as the gorgeous open-toed sandals you want to show them off in!
Happiness is…Freshly Painted Nails
Okay, so you’re delighting your complexion with a face mask and your feet are chilling in their nourishing socks it’s time to tackle your talons!
- Start my removing any old nail polish with a cotton pad to reveal fresh, clean nails.
- Apply a cuticle oil to the edge of your nails to soften the skin and gently push them back with a cuticle stick. If you need to trim the skin around the nail, this is the best time to do it.
- Apply a base coat to strengthen your nails and leave to dry.
- Next, apply two coats of your favourite Orly nail polish.
- Once your second coat is dry, apply a topcoat to lock the colour in.
