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. Beauty is escapism at its finest—meaning you can seek comfort in products 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.
The closest thing to snapping your fingers and getting a glowy, silky-smooth, I-just-left-my-facialist glow is this at-home chemical peel, which isn't scary, I promise. All the antioxidants, AHAs, and BHAs from this berry-dense formula will brighten your complexion, shrink your pores, and smooth the look of fine lines in mere minutes.
Give your eyes gold-member treatment with these (Instagrammable) foil masks. Made of hydrating, soothing ingredients like aloe leaf, calendula, amino acids, and peptides, these will brighten and de-puff your tired eyes.

Recreate the same steamy sensation you experience at your favorite spa in the comfort of your own home with this at-home facial steamer. It delivers the detoxifying benefits of warm steam, which deep-cleans and clarifies your pores while cloaking your skin with a soft veil of hydration.
You're in luck, because you can depend on this new device to mimic the results of a lymphatic drainage spa treatment. After cleansing, apply a serum or mask, then switch in-between the four settings, which include different temperatures and massages, to penetrate products deeper into your pores, sculpt the skin, and leave a lasting glow.
Because your lips deserve to feel brand-new too, you can slough away flakey dryness and dead skin cells with this golden sugar scrub. Its exfoliating, plant-based formula is gentle enough to use once or twice a week.
After exfoliating, double up on the moisture with this luxurious lip mask. The ultra-whipped formula hugs your lips with hydration that will linger there for hours.
Spa day means it's your duty to show the skin below the neck some love, too. This body scrub has baby-soft skin powers thanks to malic acid, which smoothes and sheds dead skin like no other.
Just in case you need even more exfoliation, have a dry brush handy. Before your skin comes in contact with water, gently glide this brush on your skin in circular motions for the ultimate skin detox. After showering, your skin will seriously shine and feel smooth from head to toe.
Instead of the same ol' body wash you've been using for ages, upgrade your shower's shelf appeal with this bergamot-rich body wash.

No body parts left behind, especially if this all-natural foot cream's in the mix. You won't want to skip out on the skin-smoothing benefits of the aromatic achillea plant and purifying oils. Here's to forever smooth heels!
