Are you planning a pamper day at home as a spa day alternative? We’re all watching our outgoings at the moment and creating your own diy spa day is a great way to look after yourself whilst also looking after the pennies.

In addition to your favourite film and your cosiest dressing gown, no pamper day at home is complete without some luxurious spa skin care products.

Here we’ll help you to create a pampering routine that can be used to deeply cleanse the pores, unwind the mind and reveal a radiant skin glow. We’ve also got a handy at home spa day checklist for you.

 

Set the scene at home

Prepare for your spa day at home by finding a space which is clear, clean and comfortable. Get some soft towels to hand, pop on your dressing gown and put your phone on silent. Prepare a carafe of cool, filtered water for regular hydration support.

No home pamper day is complete without the tell-tale twinkly spa music and a blissful aroma. Find a spa playlist on Spotify and then fill your home with a spa-scent by adding a few drops of your preferred Alexandra Kay Me Time Scent to a ceramic diffuser or to a handheld diffuser.

 

ALEXANDRA KAY TIME TO INHALE HANDHELD DIFFUSER

 

We think that the best essential oil for a home spa experience is Alexandra Kay’s Time to Relax Essential Oil Blend.

Expertly blended with soothing scents that unwind the mind, its top notes include Lemongrass, Sweet Orange, Bergamot and Lemon. In addition to being vaporised and inhaled, this versatile essential oil blend can also be used to make a relaxing home spa bath.

Add a few drops onto your bath pillow or mix with an unscented bath wash to create a calming bath soak experience.

Begin with a massage

Relax by soothing any soreness with a massage using the beautifully scented Time to Ease Muscle Relax Body Oil.

Created to melt away muscle tension, Time to Ease combines the phyto active CB2-Skin™ Biofunctional with pure plant actives with pain-relieving properties.

Blended with skin-comforting actives including Rosehip, Safflower and Hemp, each bottle provides enough slip for around 10 neck and shoulder massages.

 

 

Your 5-step home spa day facial

Spa facials are designed to purify and pamper your skin and the following organic skin care products can all be used to create your perfect at-home spa day facial.  

STEP 1: Cleanse

Start your home spa facial experience with fresh, clean skin and, for the perfect pampering treat, we recommend double cleansing.

A deluxe double cleanse can be achieved at home by completing your cleanse twice, using the same product.

We recommend lifting away make-up and impurities with the opulent oils found in Age Defy+ Ultimate Wonder Balm.

 

Age Defy+ Ultimate Wonder Balm

 

Designed to melt away make-up, this deluxe cleansing balm has a spa-like scent that comes from Ylang Ylang and Jasmine Flower Extracts and uses nourishing Pomegranate Oil to leave the skin exquisitely soft.

To perfect your DIY home spa facial cleanse, warm the balm in your hands, then massage gently over face, eyes and neck, taking a moment to inhale the soothing scent. When you’re ready, remove the cleanser with a warm cloth and finish by gently pressing a cool cloth over face and neck.

 

 

STEP 2: Exfoliate

A gentle face scrub should be the second stage of your home spa facial routine and Age Defy+ AHA Radiance Peel Mask is our favourite perfect home-spa exfoliator.

This luxury home facial AHA peel leaves skin velvet soft and is enriched with 5 natural fruit AHAs that lift away dead, dull, skin-congesting cells so that the path is clear for moisturiser and skin serums to deliver their hydrating goodness deep within the skin.

 

AGE DEFY+ AHA RADIANCE PEEL MASK 30ML

 

You can then leave the peel mask on the skin for up to 15 minutes and then rinse off to support cell turnover and reveal fresher, brighter, more youthful skin cells.

If your skin is sensitive and you’ve not tried this product before then you may wish to remove it sooner, after around 3 minutes.

Freshly exfoliated skin cells are more vulnerable to sunlight. Try to apply this in the evening and be sure to apply SPF the following day.

Step 3: Relax your eyes

The next part of your spa day at home concentrates on resting and rejuvenating the skin around the delicate eye area.  

 

FIRMING EYE SERUM 10ML

 

Apply a firming serum around the contours of the eye and then massage this into the skin by either tapping it gently or by moving your finger in a figure of eight movement.

For relaxing results, start at the brow line then glide the finger under the eye and up over the bridge of the nose towards the other brow.

If your eyes are prone to dark shadows and eye bags, use a Gua Sha to draw away congestion towards the lymph gland. To do this, first create slip with your eye serum or a facial oil and then sweep the Gua Sha under the eye and towards the ear.

 

 

Step 4: Replenish

Complete your DIY spa day by cocooning your freshly pampered skin with a nourishing face mask that’s rich in rejuvenating actives.

Age Defy+ Hydra-Glow Sleep Mask is perfect for home-spa facials and this rich, silk-textured skin creams works overnight to support firmer, fresher skin with ingredients that boost collagen production and replenish skin hydration levels.

 

Age Defy+ Hydra-Glow Sleep Mask

 

Enriched with 35 beauty-enhancing actives, Neroli is responsible for its sweet spa-like aroma whilst hydrating Wakame seaweed works in synergy with Everlasting Flower to give this deeply moisturising face cream its rejuvenating power. For best results, leave on overnight and wake to firm, fresh, youthful you!
