Take a day off. There’s nothing better than a spa day or a reset day. We’re going to show you how to do it right: the right appliances and the right details for a perfectly relaxing day.We all need days off to unwind and reset. You could shell out cash every time you want a professional-quality spa day, or you could make a lifetime investment in a couple of appliances that you’ll want to use at the end of every day, or on weekends, to relax. You’ll be more relaxed and more likely to take some time off (no matter how much of a workaholic you are!) because all of the things you’ll need will be at your disposal.
Let’s start the day right; even though it’s a lazy day, you don’t want to let yourself sleep in until an unreasonable time, because this will confuse your internal clock. If you wake up really late, you’ll go to bed really late. It continues the cycle that you’re trying to break with this reset day. 10 am is great time because you can sleep in without pushing it.
Start off by going through your usual morning hygiene routine (i.e. brush your teeth, wash your face, etc.), then grab some breakfast and a cup of your favorite morning beverage. Whether it’s coffee, tea, or hot water with lemon, a built-in Coffee Maker is great investment that you’ll use everyday and that won’t take up space. We’ve got a great one from Smeg that even has a steam function to whisk milk.
If you have a favorite candle or an essential oil diffuser, light it or turn it on now so you can enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy while you prepare the rest of your spa day essentials, like a homemade face mask.
A spa day would not be complete without some DIY Skincare. Masks are a great way to let you skin soak in some natural goodness (plus, they make you feel very pampered!). Here’s a couple of suggestions:
Banana Mask for softer, more hydrated skin: mash a ripe banana into a paste, mix it with 2 tbsp of honey, and 1/4 cup of plain yogurt.
Yogurt Mask for tight and clean skin: Mix 1/4 of an orange slice (juice and pulp), one tsp of plain yogurt, and one tsp of aloe. Kiss your pores goodbye.
Garlic Quick Spot Acne Treatment: If you’d rather do some targeted treatment, grab a garlic clove and cut about 1/4 of it off. Rub it where you need to and cut a slice each time you move from one spot to the next. You can leave it on as long as you’d like.
CAUTION: it’s garlic so it smells like, well, garlic. If you’d rather choose something a little less pungent, opt for lemon! Same treatment process but instead of garlic you’re going to use fresh squeezed lemon juice. NOT the bottled kind because that has preservative that you don’t need to be slathering on your face!
Pick one that fits your target area, slap on that face mask and hop in the tub! It’s time for some hydrotherapy.
The best part of a spa is the Jacuzzi or hot tub. The combination of heat and water jets create a soothing experience that melts your troubles away. Now, with the right tools, you can recreate that relaxing experience in your own home. We offer a variety of whirlpool baths that will hit you in all the right places. Ariel has a few visually stunning and functionally intriguing models.
One such model is the AM152 Whirlpool Bathtub.
This tub has a see-through panel on both sides, an easy dial system to adjust the water intensity, chromotherapy lighting to raise your spirits even higher, a number of jets located in optimal positions for great hydrotherapy massages, and a built in radio with a waterproof stereo speaker. Listen to today’s hits while setting yourself at ease. The bath tub also has an Ozone Sterilization process that kills 100% of the bacteria and mold in the tub so you never have to worry about contaminants and you can be totally relaxed.
The AM151 is a good choice if you still want the lights but you’d like something with opaque side panels.
This model features a two person capacity and six message modes. You can choose from four different jet pressure levels, and a continual automatic gradual change in jet pressure from low to high. It still has the chromotherapy lighting , and you can choose from seven different LED color schemes. It includes a digital stereo and twenty-one jets in the perfect location for a deep massage, every time. The drain can be installed on either the right or left.
If you’d rather go for a more traditional shape, as opposed to the more contemporary rectangle, we also offer Ariel’s AM128.
This has all of the great functions we’ve already talked about from Ariel and has fourteen whirlpool massage jets. It’s still modern, but it has a more traditional and curved design that will help upgrade your bathroom without looking out of place (if you have an older design style). If you want to give your bathroom a complete over haul, we can also help you design the perfect space! Just give us a call at 1(800)-299-9470. We can provide you with quality design and appliance advice at unbeatable prices!
If you’d rather just make some additions to facilitate your spa day needs, we’ve still got a few other options for you!
Next up, is the sauna. A sauna is a perfect and healthy way to unwind and clear the toxins from your body. We’ve got some great options from Heatwave that are perfect for a solitary home-spa, or a group spa day.
The Buena Vista 1-Person Infrared Sauna is great for personal use. Go in and tune out the world with a warm and calming sensory experience. The sauna is made of premium grade Hemlock wood and features a touch control panel both inside and outside the sauna. There’s a sound system and lighting in the unit for you can choose whether you want to read a good book, or listen to some good tunes. The ergonomic backrests will keep you comfortable so you can stay in there as long as you’d like! You also have a ventilation option with adjustable ceiling vents that let you bring fresh air into the sauna to keep air circulation.
In case you were looking for something a little bigger, but still personal, we also have the 3 Person capacity Sante Fe model from HeatWave.
It has all the amenities and features of the Buena Vista, but with the addition of seven color system chromotherapy bulb.
