Start With Your Surroundings

Start off by lighting a candle and allow the aroma to fill the space and take you away to a place of calm and harmony. The ESPA range has 4 signature blends – depending on your mood and how you would like to feel after your treat – that are perfect for recreating a spa day at home.

Run yourself a nice warm, comforting bath, adding in essential oils, a nurturing bath milk or bath salts to create the spa at home feel.

Play some calming, chilled music as music can help to de-stress, create a sense of overall wellbeing, and lift your mood!

The Perfect Products

Before you step into the bath, cleanse your face to remove any impurities that may have built up throughout the day. ESPA’s Optimal Skin Pro Cleanser is perfect for all skin types, which will leave your skin feeling refreshed and revived for your home spa day.

Next, apply a face mask to get that facial at home feeling. Vitamin C masks are great for all skin types, helping to recharge stressed and tired complexions. Keep the mask on while you are in the bath, letting the steam help to absorb the mask better into the skin.

Take It All In

Step into the bath and take a moment to focus on your breathing. Taking deep breaths in through the nose, inhaling the aromas as you do, and exhaling slowly through the mouth. Allow any stresses or worries to melt away.

Focus your thoughts on what you feel, hear and smell. Feel the warmth of the water against your skin, listen to the sound of water and relaxing music and smell the calming aromas from the essential oils. Imagine you are having the most beautiful treatment in your favourite spa. Allow your thoughts to drift off to a place of peace and serenity.

Take your time to journey back into your bathroom, bringing your focus back on to your breath and become more aware of your surroundings.

The Finishing Touch

As you emerge from the bath, wrap yourself in a warmed robe. Once you are dry, get extra comfy and slip into a soft bath robe. Wash away your face mask and choose a face treatment oil to apply to your skin, ready to perform an at home facial massage.

Finish off your spa at home treat to release facial tension, increase circulation, improve elasticity, and skin tone as your work all over the face, neck and décolleté…
