How to Have a Luxurious Spa Day at Home

The perfect at-home spa day does exist, if you have these staples.

Even though there's an official shutdown of spas nationwide due to COVID-19, you have the power to create your own reality. This time calls for you to be especially gentle with yourself and spend extra time on self-care. (opens in new tab) Beauty is escapism at its finest—meaning you can seek comfort in products (opens in new tab) and transform your bathroom into an at-home spa sanctuary, indeed. It might not have the exact feel as your favorite spa, but these set-the-mood products will do the trick. All you have to do is make yourself some cucumber water, turn on your tea kettle, slip on a fuzzy robe and slippers, play your fave relaxing tunes, and get started.

These pick-me-up products will spoil your hair, skin, body, and nails with professional-level results. With a massaging facial tool, warming hand mask, slow-burning candle, and more to indulge in, you'll feel beautified from head to toe. Don't jump all at once and overcomplicate things, though; start with a few of these, then go from there. Scroll on for the spa day staples that have kept me in high spirits during self-isolation.
