Apply the mask to your entire face, and you will see the difference in a matter of minutes.

Another perk is that this is the optimal option for those who like to multitask while getting spoiled. You can apply your favorite smells and additives to the bath while you are waiting for the clay to work its magic. Your spa day is all about you, and the mask will help you feel better by removing the impurities and brightening your skin.

4. Engage the senses during your at-home spa day. 

The best part about a spa day is getting to feel special, and many aspects of the business tailor to the five senses and make sure they are all engaged. When you are setting up your treatment in your own home, you should consider all of the elements that are pleasing for you. Different smells, tastes, touches, and sounds hit differently, and you will want things to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible. It can only enhance your experience that much more.

It’s all in the details about how immersive you want this sensible spa treatment to be. Choose a scent that pairs well with your playlist. Grab a luxurious robe that is soft to the touch. Drink your favorite beverage and bring in some of your favorite foods. The choice is up to you. Remember that relaxation is an emotional and psychological state. You are not meant to feel any tension, anxiety, or fear. Just let go and be free at the moment.

Bath time can bring its own kind of special treatment to the spa. You can make your tub time even more lavish with the addition of flower petals, essential oils, and citruses. The possibilities are nearly endless. Some bath salts even have their own essential oils infused inside. You can play around and find what you are looking for until the suitable bath is ready for you to use.

Your bath can be the cure to what ails you. If you are looking for a cheap bath addition that doesn’t break the bank, you can create your own fizzing bath bombs using ingredients found around your house or at the local pharmacy store. Epsom salts, baking soda, cornstarch, and citric acid for the fizz are all you need to make your bath feel much more expensive than it really is.

2. Use tennis balls for a DIY massage.

Over time, kinks in muscles can settle in, and the soreness that comes with it can be a literal pain in the neck. It is no wonder that when you are hurt, your whole mood can spiral downward. There may be the answer right inside your sports utility closet. A tennis ball is the perfect handheld size to work out those trouble spots and get you to feeling better.

To do this do-it-yourself massage trick, place the ball in the target locations on your back and prop your head with a pillow. Roll the balls over the painful areas, and you will begin to feel some relief. Continue for a few minutes until you start to sense a bit better. Score one for the athletes! Besides, instead of forking over a bunch of cash at a masseuse, you can relax in your home and still get a massage. Not only will you save money, but you can use the tennis balls for a fun game later. Tennis is great exercise!

1. Eggs are not just for breakfast.

You can enjoy an at-home spa day any time of the morning, afternoon, evening, or night. Whenever you do, get the eggs ready. No, they are not just for eating, either. You can use the ever necessary egg for more than the most important meal of the day. Egg whites are great for treating oily skin or creating a toner. Mix the yolks with some olive oil, and you have a deep conditioning hair treatment that can be whipped up in no time. This treatment only takes 20 minutes to work its charms, perfect for slipping in the bath.

What makes eggs a superfood for your hair? Egg yolk is rich in vitamins, which can help your hair become more resistant to damage. The excellent combination of vitamins A and E, biotin, and folate provides unique chemistry in making your tresses feel healthier and stronger. Researchers have also linked eggs as an essential part of stimulating healthy hair growth.
