You may have found yourself spending more time at home lately, or maybe you’re just a homebody and proud of it. Our Galleria apartments offer a ton of in-home luxuries and amenities, making it fun and enjoyable to cozy up at home alone or to invite a few friends over.
If you’re looking for new ideas ta home, how about treating yourself to an at-home spa night? And we’ve got details and tips to make it relaxing and enjoyable for you.
8 TIPS TO CREATE A PERFECT SPA NIGHT in your houston galleria apartment:
We suggest scheduling some time for your at-home spa night. Make a date with yourself and even schedule in your calendar or alert on your iPhone, so you won’t forget or skip it. Make sure your tub and bath area are clean – try to ensure the areas are cleaned up and ready to go the day before, so when it comes time for your relaxing spa night at home, you can sit back and relax, literally.
Turn your phone off, or put it out of reach. Since you typically aren’t allowed to bring your phone into any of the fancy Houston spas, we think you should treat your Galleria apartment at-home spa the same way! Turn the ringer off or put it on airplane mode so you’re not distracted with a call during your relaxing evening.
Slice up cooled cucumbers for your eyes. Cucumbers have anti-inflammatory effects that help reduce puffiness, while their high water concentration allows for extra hydration. Plus, it just feels extra, and we’re all about going the extra mile when it comes to self-care.
Set the ambiance. Use candles or grab a glass of wine from your built-in wine chiller to enjoy while soaking in your luxurious bathtub. There’s no one there to bother you, so indulge and take time to pamper yourself. Think of what you enjoyed at your last spa treatment or one you saw on TV and try to duplicate those fancy experiences.
Splurge with warm towels and essential oils. Consider this the at-home facial you’ve needed for weeks. We recommend getting a few washcloths or small hand towels hot (careful not to burn yourself!) and gently rub over your face; perhaps to wipe off makeup, use as an exfoliating scrub, or to wipe away the day’s grime. If you have essential oils, put a few drops in the hot towel to breathe in the relaxing and calming aromas, like lavender or rose, which is a common and relaxing technique used in some of the most luxurious spas.
Use all those facial masks and scrub treatments that never leave your bathroom cabinet. You’ve been saving them for a special occasion, and here it is (you are the special occasion). Bring out the bath bombs, loofah sponges, facemasks, and whatever else you have, and put them to good use. After all, most have expiration dates; so don’t let them go to waste.
Use a hair mask. Any of these at-home hair masks can be made with products you probably already have in your kitchen.
Don’t forget the rest of your body. Jump on the dry-brushing trend as a simple and easy way to get glowing skin. “Dry brushing increases blood flow and stimulates collagen production, which will help to strengthen your skin. It also dramatically increases elasticity, so it's great for lifting and toning,” says Glamour. You can even try one of these.
