Self-Quarantine has become our new shared reality. No one knows when life will go back to normal and going by expert predictions, the best-case scenario of the Coronavirus pandemic ending is a long way away. 

Now, staying at home can take a toll on your mental health, especially, when there is no change in your routine to look forward to. 

So, here's a definite guide to creating a fun, make-shift spa for a relaxing day which can help in washing your worries away:

1. Set The Music

Think of the genre of the music that relaxes you the most and set the system up in your bathroom safely in a way that it doesn't come in contact with water. 

Some Bluetooth speakers are designed in a way that can be hung on the wall easily and securely. Set the system in place, this will be your first step in creating an ambience for the spa.

2. Create A Face Mask At Home

For a DIY face mask, mix gram flour, sandalwood, turmeric, rose water with ¼ tbsp. of honey. You could also look up a face mask online with the ingredients that you have at home (btw a peeled potato is also a facemask). You can also cut cucumber slices for extra points. 

Set the mask concoction in a ceramic bowl in your bathroom along with the cucumber slices on the side, to be used when you start your spa session.

3. Light Up Scented Candles

This step is important as it's trying to engage all your senses in making your washroom feel like a spa. A scented candle can instantly change the ambience of the bathroom. 

On the side, you can also soak in a mix of Epsom salt, baking soda, chamomile tea, and rosemary. This concoction is good at calming stressed skin.

4. The Secret To The Spa-Like Soaked Towels

Wet hand towels, add a drop or two of the essential oil that you like and have at home, and heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds to create warm, steamy and fluffy towels for your skin post the mask.

5. Keep A Fragranced Moisturiser

For the make-shift spa day,  fragranced moisturisers are great to lather-up on at the end of the session. Something from The Body Shop or The Bath & Body Works, are great for this step. 

You can steal these from your girlfriend's stash as well. While massaging your skin, make sure to lather behind your arms and your back.

Lastly, pre-download that playlist on Spotify, put your phone on airplane mode before you sit in for the Spa session for a wholesome experience.
