What if we treat ourselves to a good moment of relaxation? Here are some wellness tips to create a spa atmosphere at home!

Sometimes it feels good to take time for yourself … at home. If you want to treat yourself to a good cocooning session at home, we suggest you create the atmosphere of a divine spa at home. You will tell us the news!

Immerse yourself in the atmosphere

This is the basis for being able to relax! We forget the bright lights, we flee the dark and we opt for a subdued atmosphere and if we have a diffuser at home, we take the opportunity to sensitize our olfactory senses. We can also fall for a scented candle that we can for example find at Rituals, Nicolaï, Trudon or L’Artisan Parfumeur.

Adopt a soothing playlist, preferably in relation to the chosen olfactory atmosphere. The sound of nature, electro-chill, exotic music, acoustics or a symphony, it’s up to you! We simply recommend that you opt for the instrumental. You can find playlists on Deezer, Spotify or YouTube. If you don’t have a subscription (yes the ads break the atmosphere a bit), you can take advantage of the trial periods if you haven’t done so before.

Take care

There is no one to impress and that’s good because we’re here to take care of ourselves anyway. And since there is no shortage of time to pamper yourself from head to toe!

We start with the head, or rather with the hair on which you can apply a mask or an oil bath. Leonor Greyl’s oil so the masque Wella Elements are quite effective if your hair is damaged. You massage the scalp well and you can also wrap your hair with a hot towel during the installation.

The face now. By dint of staying at home, the complexion suffers and imperfections point the tip of their nose. Clay remains your ally! More precisely: green clay against excess sebum, white clay against brown spots and ghassoul for softness. You will find a lot of choice at Cattier Where Aroma-Zone.

the vapor bath is also ideal for removing imperfections while providing a moment of relaxation. Even if you don’t have a facial sauna at home, you can do it quite simply by boiling water in a saucepan with a few drops of essential oils or dried plants. Then you pour everything into a large container, you cover your head with a towel, tilting your face towards the water. Then all you have to do is relax for a few minutes (without exceeding 10 minutes). Be careful, do not take this action too often.

And for the corps, we take the opportunity to get rid of dead skins with a voucher scrub. You can exfoliate your skin with a sugar scrub (the Sakura scrub is a bestseller from Rituals), fall for a salt scrub (a wide choice is available at sabon), or go on a black soap scrub (which can be found at aroma-zone). For the latter to be carried out effectively, a gant kessa is necessary. For the proper use of black soap, heat is also needed so that the body perspires.

Some home care recipes

Fanny martin, beauty expert from Selman Marrakech, reveals its home-made recipes that you can easily make in your home:

Facial infusion / steam bath

Infuse a small bunch of fresh mint in hot water for a few minutes. Once out of the heat, place your face over the container with a cloth over your head for at least 10 minutes. Ideal for opening pores and getting rid of impurities.

Rose water

Boil 250/300 ml of water then pour over the buds or rose petals. Leave to infuse for at least 12 hours. Filter. Keep in the refrigerator for a maximum of 7/10 days. Ideal for refreshing the skin and relieving sensitive skin.

Face oil

Extra virgin cold-pressed argan oil (in supermarket) + 2 drops of rosehip essential oils. Apply every evening to fight against aging and immediately restore radiance and suppleness. Alternative: use olive oil, more fragrant …

Body scrub

Mix 3/4 tablespoons of coffee grounds with 15 to 30 ml of coconut oil, argan oil or olive oil. Add essential oils as desired and needed. Ideal for removing dead cells and encouraging skin regeneration.
