Warm up with a Home Spa Day

TIPS FOR A RELAXING SPA DAY AT HOME

Discover a few tips to make your spa day go as smoothly as possible.
- Select a comfortable, non-restricting outfit and give your body a rest. You’re at home so there’s no need to dress up.
- Make sure you won’t be bothered: Start by checking that your phone is off and out of sight.
- Prepare a cold drink before a hot bath: The heat can get overwhelming very fast! Try a spice-infused water recipe with mint, apple and cinnamon to chase the gloomy days away. Let it brew in the refrigerator for an hour.
- Set your tools: Have fresh towels and all your beauty and bathing products at arm’s reach to avoid getting back out.
- Dim the lights: Light a Winter Forest Perfumed Candle or use a Winter Forest Home Diffuser to create a relaxing, aromatherapy spa atmosphere.

HOW TO PREPARE A RELAXING BATH

soak

Bathing is wonderful for your skin, and if you do it right, you can reap many benefits. Make your bath a relaxing, aromatic haven: Whether you prefer silky water or a bubble bath, choose the texture that will delight your senses most. We recommend filling your tub with Lavender Foaming Bath and enjoy a generously foamy bath with the added bonus of the soothing scent of lavender.

MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR BATH

scrub

Time for a scrub! The best way to use your favourite body scrub is before you wash, on dry skin, or slightly dampened skin if you're more sensitive. Looking for a long-lasting moisturised skin? Go for Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Scrub, a rich and creamy scrub with 10% Shea Butter that will pre-moisturise your skin as it gets rid of dead skin cells. If you feel like trying a more sensorial experience, Almond Delicious Paste is made for you! Let yourself smell its delicious scent and enjoy its unique paste-like texture and the silky finish of almond oil. Did you know? Most of L'Occitane's scrubs use soluble (sugar, salt) or biodegradable (crushed almond shells, apricot kernel powder) particles, which won't damage your skin and are environmentally friendly.

PAMPER YOUR BODY

moisturise

Should I apply my moisturiser right after bathing? YES, Moisturising after scrubbing and bathing is the best way to provide intense moisture - do it after every shower or bath. It's very important in order to restore your skin's hydrolipidic film, to protect your body and keep it moisturised. Nourish and comfort your skin with Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream, a rich texture with 25% Shea Butter. If you'd rather firm up and smooth your skin, try our indulgent Almond Milk Concentrate - a delightful firming cream with the light scent of almonds. Extra tip: While applying a body cream, take some time to release tension from your legs by giving yourself a leg massage. This will also help your skin fully absorb the cream

SPOIL YOUR HANDS & FEET

Finalise your spa ritual by giving your hands and feet a full reboot. To soothe your hands and feet in depth, follow this regimen. Once or twice a week, start by applying Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body scrub to soften your feet while removing dead skin cells, - Once your feet are all soaked up, nourish them with Shea Butter Foot Cream, which helps relieve the feeling of tired feet and gives them the aromatic scent of Provencal Lavender, - wash your hands and apply Shea Butter Hand Scrub, Massage gently on your hands for one minute and then rinse off. - Take extra care of your hands: apply Shea Butter Nail Cuticle Oil to help soften and nourish your nail cuticles. gently massage your fingers to help the formula penetrate more efficiently. - Finish by moisturising your hands with Shea Butter Hand Cream, it will protect, nourish and comfort your hands, leaving your skin smooth and hydrated.

GET A RESTFUL NIGHTS SLEEP

Sleeping Beauty

Sleep is a natural beauty enhancer. A good night’s sleep reduces the stress hormone cortisol (which is responsible for thinning skin) while increasing melatonin (which acts like an antioxidant against fine lines and spots). During slumber, collagen-producing cells regenerate to increase skin’s elasticity and tightness. To further enhance the beauty benefits of sleep, apply rich moisturisers and creams at night to wake up with soft well-hydrated skin and hair.  

Immortelle Precious Night Cream: Apply to the face before bed to revitalize the complexion and leave skin feeling smooth the next morning. 
Relaxing Pillow Mist: The relaxing pillow mist contains the essential oils of lavender, bergamot, mandarin, sweet orange and geranium. It has been proven to be effective at creating a soothing sensation, conducive to a peaceful, relaxing night's sleep.
