Snow Day = DIY spa day

snow day spa day DIY spa day

Snow days are the best days for doing…well nothing. This weekend I was snowed in and bundled up by the fire, so I thought it would be the perfect time to have a snow day spa day. Any excuse to pamper yourself is a good day in my book.

Whenever I have an at home spa day, I try to emulate an actual spa day as much as possible, which means heated towels, warm wash clothes, lush products, and an a quiet, peaceful environment.

My snow day spa day was all about focusing on skin and hair.

A good at home spa day should start off with a good cleanser, I’ve been dying to try First Aid Beauty’s Face Cleanser, and I recently picked it up so I figured it would the perfect time to give it a shot. FAB’s cleanser is light, foamy, and non-drying; it’s simple and efficient, no-frills skin care. It’s not exactly a life changing cleaner but it’s good enough to keep in my rotation.

After cleansing it’s all about sloughing off that dead skin, I have CRAZY dry skin so exfoliating is super important for me. I LOVE the First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads because they aren’t super harsh and are gently enough for daily use which my skin needs in the winter.

I love to double up when it comes to masks; doing one mask is never enough! Right now I’m pretty obsessed with moisture masks as well as ANY sheet mask. During my snow day spa day I busted out Lush’s The Sacred Truth mask and Leader’s What Happened Last Night? sheet mask. The Scared Truth mask is full of yummy natural ingredients like Shea butter and papaya that leave your skin glowy and super soft while the What Happened Last Night? sheet mask revitalizes skin by using a full bottle of serum in each mask.

While my skin is busy getting gorgeous, I can’t forget about my hair. For the longest time I’ve treated my hair like utter crap; throwing it up in a bun every day has reeked havoc on my hair so lately I’ve been trying my best to treat it a little bit better. While perusing Ulta, I stumbled across Tony Moly’s Angel Ring Hair Mask which I’ve noticed several times but never picked up. This time, I caved and thought what the hell. This Korean mask is a two part mask; that’s supposed to help prevent hair damage and add shine. The mask helps thin, damaged hair by dousing it with nutrients that are locked in by the essence hair cap.

To seal the deal on any at home spa day it’s all about sealing in the moisture of your skin. Last winter First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Cream was my winter skin savior, and you can read all about that here. FAB’s Ultra Repair Cream is super hydrating without being heavy or sticky and I love it more than words.

P.S. If you’re dying to try First Aid Beauty’s skincare line pick up this beauty that is full of 3 generous miniature sized products! It’s totally worth it! 🙂
