How to Have an At-Home Spa Day How to Have an At-Home Spa Day How to Have an At-Home Spa Day

Honestly, is there anything better than having a spa day? Seriously, what could be more relaxing than listening to the sound of gentle ocean waves as someone applies a face mask to your skin and massages your scalp, arms, and hands while you close your eyes and drift off? The downside is, going to the spa can sometimes cost a small fortune. Want to reap the skin care and self-care benefits without leaving home? Pamper yourself pretty by having your own at-home spa day without ever stepping foot outside the comfort of your own home. If you have a face mask and a few other indulgent beauty staples, you can get the fun started at a moment’s notice. Keep reading to learn six tips for creating the ultimate home spa day experience.

HOME SPA DAY TIP #1: USE A FACE MASK (OR THREE)

Want to have a spa day at home? Call up your girlfriends and lay out the following face masks from our Pure-Clay line. Each of these face masks is formulated with three pure clays. You can even use multiple face masks at the same time to address different skin issues on different areas of your face—this skin care trend is known as multi-masking. Once you’ve figured out which face mask(s) you’d like to use, apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Follow up with moisturizer to hydrate your skin. Use the following five face masks two to three times a week for best results.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask: Daily wear and tear—makeup and improper care—can leave skin looking uneven with roughness and imperfections. When a facial cleanser isn’t enough to solve this problem, look to a face mask. Formulated with yuzu lemon extract, this face mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution, shed rough, dead skin cells from the surface of skin, clarify tone, and improve skin texture.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Clear & Comfort Face Mask: Over time, harsh cleansing can be drying and sensitizing, leaving skin feeling uncomfortable. As a result, skin needs cleaning that is effective yet gentle. Formulated with seaweed, this face mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and gently cleanse stressed areas.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask: Over time, harsh environmental factors like pollution and debris can damage skin, leaving your complexion looking dull and tired. Formulated with charcoal, this face mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution and reduce the look of dull skin for the appearance of increased luminosity.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask: Day after day, dead skin cells can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion feeling rough. Formulated with red algae extract, this face mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, exfoliate dead skin cells, smooth the look of imperfections, and allow skin to breathe.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask: Day after day, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion looking overly oily. Formulated with eucalyptus leaf extract, this face mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and reduce the look of excess shine.

Want more face mask options for your at-home spa day? Here are two more for you to consider!

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Face Mask: Formulated for mature, dull skin, this face mask helps renew the appearance of skin’s youthful rosiness via a fresh, cooling experience. The face mask formula has a gelee texture and sloughs away dull, dead skin cells from the surface of skin. Immediately, skin looks fresh and hydrated. Apply the face mask to clean dry skin, leave on for five minutes, then gently massage the face mask over your skin using light, circular motions to help exfoliate. Rinse off with lukewarm water and use two times per week for best results.

L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Intensive Overnight Face Mask: Keep the at-home spa day going throughout the night by applying an overnight face mask to your skin before bed. This one is a luxurious and hydrating leave-on face mask that forms a virtual protective mask to cradle skin. Apply it prior to sleep on cleansed skin. Use alone or as the last step in your nighttime skin care routine. Smooth it over your face, neck, and jawline until absorbed, and leave it on overnight to see results.

HOME SPA DAY TIP #2: PAINT YOUR NAILS

There’s just something about having freshly painted fingers and toes that allows you to instantly feel more put-together. Give yourself an at-home manicure and pedicure during your at-home spa day, being sure to incorporate a few tips from our article, 10 Ways to Show Your Hands and Nails Some Major TLC.

HOME SPA DAY TIP #3: GIVE YOURSELF A MASSAGE

You may not have a masseuse on hand to work out all of the knots in your back, but you can still treat yourself to a massage during your home spa day. While you may not be able to massage your own back or shoulders very effectively, you can certainly give yourself a facial massage! Grab a facial oil and follow the steps in our article, How to Give Yourself a Facial Massage.

HOME SPA DAY TIP #4: USE A BATH BOMB

Sitting back and taking a bath allows you to indulge in some serious self-care and dedicated time for relaxation. To take your bath to the next level, toss in a bath bomb that will turn the water filling your tub into a work of art. Throw some rose petals in for an extra dose of self-love, then grab a good book and put on your most calming playlist to really relax.

HOME SPAY DAY TIP #5: PUT ON A HAIR MASK

Your skin isn’t the only thing that can benefit from masking—your hair can, too! So, why not work a hair mask into your at-home spa day activities? To mix things up, try a trendy L’Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Intense Repair Hair Sheet Mask are both hydrating, sulfate-free formula-filled sheet mask caps that are meant to be placed on your hair after shampooing. When you’re in the shower with the cap in place the steam allows the formula to melt onto your hair and nourish your strands.

HOME SPA DAY TIP #6: WINE DOWN

Let’s be honest—sometimes (or a lot of the time) a glass of wine after a long week is so needed. Grab a glass, pour your favorite, and “wine” down! Combine this tip with your bath and you’ll really have yourself an amazing spa day with max relaxing.

HOME SPA DAY TIP #7: LIGHT CANDLES

Top off your home spa day by lighting scented candles. After all, what’s a spa without indulging all your senses? Try using candles with spa-like scents, aka lavender and ocean mist.
