How To Plan A Spa Day At Home

As we're celebrating National Spa Week in lockdown, we're doing our bit to bring the spa to you. Take a look at our 9-5 plan of spa day bliss...
Spa Day At Home

Sometimes we need to switch off, escape the stress of day-to-day life and find our inner peace. So, with that in mind, Luxe has planned a DIY spa day that you can create in your own home…

 

9am

Breathe in… and breathe out. Start your day by stretching out any negative energy with your own yoga instructor from Newcastle’s Yoga X Life. The online classes begin and end with mediation to help relax your mind, body and soul.

What you’ll need:

– Yoga X Life’s ‘On-Demand Library’ monthly subscription of £12, yogatherapies.co.uk

– A yoga mat from Liforme, currently priced at £80 with 20% off, liforme.com

– Yoga X Life’s Wellbeing and Health Box, full of everything you need from incense to perfectly scented candles, £135, yogatherapies.co.uk

– Comfy yoga wear from Yoga X Life. Yes, they even have their own stylish merchandise. We’ve got our eyes on the Grey Signature Vest, £25, yogatherapies.co.uk

10am

Now you’re in a calm and positive state of mind, it’s time to focus on your body. We may not have the magic hands of a massage therapist, but we do have a portable masseuse in the form of a chair, which will allow you to drift off into complete relaxation. Designed to release endorphins and reduce stress. 

What you’ll need:

– HomeMedics Shiatsu Chair, £149, lookfantastic.com

11am

It’s time to look after your body from the inside. Herbal teas are perfect for internal balance. Mauli offer a stunning luxury gift set containing three Ayurvedic teas – and boy are they delicious. These fantastic tipples can aid digestion, calm the mind and strengthen immunity; and let’s face it, nothing beats a good cup of tea. 

What you’ll need:

– The Luxury Tea Gift Set, £65, maulirituals.com 

1pm

Hello lunchtime. Newcastle’s Great British Cupcakery offers a mouthwatering takeaway afternoon tea – the perfect addition for an indulgent spa day. With delicious miniature sandwiches, tasty cheese scones, ‘dirty brownies’ as well as Eton mess cupcakes with a ‘meringue kiss’. Delicious. 

What you’ll need:

– Takeaway Afternoon Tea, collect yours at GB Cupcakery, Friday- Sunday 11am-3pm, £16.99, gpcupcakery.co.uk

4pm

It’s time for bubbles… After a long hard day of relaxing, run yourself a hot bubble bath and pour yourself a glass of fizz to enjoy as you soak. Set the scene with scented candles and get lost in your favourite book. 

What you’ll need:

– Ladenac Lotus Sacré scented candle, £150, selfridges.com 

– Seychelles Bath and Body Gift Set, £26, thewhitecompany.com

Time for one final pamper. Get your nails party season ready with Louboutin’s Rouge nail polish. Give dry hair a drink with Olaplex’s world-famous bonding hair products and let your face immerse in luxury Caviar –  all it needs for a healthy glow.
