We could all do with a stress-reliever after the massive curveball 2020 has thrown at us! It seems there’s no better time to think about and practice a little self-care, and with National Spa Week now here, a 7-day campaign that aims to raise awareness of the real physical, mental and emotional benefits that regular spa attendance can offer, we’ve taken a look at some must-haves for a spa day at home if you don’t feel quite comfortable enough to go out yet.
Divine Eyes Mask – RRP £21 for a box of 7 masks
Draw a bubble bath and fall into a state of deep relaxation and let your worries slip away with this luxurious self-warming eye mask. Sensory Retreats new Divine Eyes Mask is the perfect option for a relaxing ‘spa-at-home’ quick fix, especially for those with time restraints. Made with natural ingredients which gently heat as they come into contact with the air, the self-heating, lavender infused eye mask helps to alleviate dry and tired eyes, headaches and stress.
Burnished Amber Scented Candle – RRP £35
Candles are so relaxing and therefore a must for any spa day, and we love this Burnished Amber one from luxury home fragrance brand Nostara! With a burn time of up to 40 hours, this candle is made from natural, eco-friendly soy wax, giving off a warm and intoxicating musk which captures a sense of the East.
Vitamin C Glow Sheet Mask – RRP £4
Enriched with vitamin C-rich camu camu from Peru and Community Fair Trade organic aloe vera from Mexico, The Body Shop’s vegan Vitamin C face mask calls for just 15 minutes of your time. Suitable for all skin types, this mask promises to reveal your natural-looking glow and leaves skin feeling instantly awakened, hydrated and healthier – and at £4 who can complain?
