Four Steps To Elevate Your At-Home Spa Experience

Now, let's turn your home into a tranquil spa haven by focusing on these four areas:

  1. Steaming Power: Before applying your SmartMud, open your pores with a relaxing steam session. Simply drape a towel over your head while hovering over a bowl of hot water.
  2. Massage Magic: Enhance circulation and product absorption by massaging your face with upward and outward strokes.
  3. Complementary Comforts: Elevate your experience with a headband to keep hair out of your face, a silk pillowcase to prevent sleep wrinkles and a gua sha stone or jade roller for a relaxing facial massage.
  4. Sensory Escape: Light some calming candles, diffuse essential oils like lavender or chamomile, and curate a spa-inspired playlist on Spotify to truly unwind.


    Five Spa Essentials for Boosting Your Skincare:

    Gua Sha Stone or Jade Roller: Promotes lymphatic drainage and a sculpted look. Ulta has a versatile $15 Jade Roller + Gua Sha Stone Duo with this jade bundle.

    Terry Cloth Headband: Keeps hair out of the way for a mess-free facial. We're big fans of the $10 dusty rose extra wide Kitsch headband.

    Silk Pillowcase: Reduces friction and prevents sleep wrinkles. Brooklinen has a mulberry silk pillowcase in both standard and king.
