Summer is in full swing, and we’re all about embracing the warmth of the season while prioritizing self-care and relaxation. Let's take advantage of the balmy evenings to create our own at-home spa night with Sage + Sound's curated range of wellness products. Transform your home into a tranquil oasis and elevate your self-care regimen with our top five picks that will make any summer evening feel like a getaway to a serene spa resort.
Carbonnique Face & Neck Massaging Tool
Designed to mimic the effects of a professional spa facial massage, the Carbonnique Face & Neck Massaging Tool is a must-have for your at-home spa night. To use this tool, start with a clean, freshly moisturized face. Hold the massager at a slight angle and start rolling it upwards from your neck to your jawline, cheekbones, and forehead, maintaining gentle yet firm pressure. The massaging tool stimulates blood circulation, encourages lymphatic drainage, and helps your skincare products penetrate deeper into your skin. The cooling sensation of the roller also helps to reduce puffiness, resulting in a more toned, radiant complexion. Pro-tip just from Sage + Sound to you: for an extra soothing effect, keep the tool in the fridge before use.
Esker Body Plane
The Esker Body Plane takes your body care regimen to the next level. Modeled after traditional Turkish bath tools, it is designed to gently exfoliate your skin, remove dead skin cells, and stimulate the lymphatic system. For your at-home spa night, ensure your skin is soft and ready – a hot shower or steam is perfect for this. Apply your favorite body oil to keep the skin lubricated. Holding the Esker Body Plane at a slight angle, gently glide it across your skin in long, sweeping motions, moving towards the heart. Remember to not apply too much pressure; let the tool do the work. After use, your skin will feel baby-soft and rejuvenated, and you'll notice an overall glow. Regular use can help improve skin tone and texture, and it's a natural way to keep your skin looking its best all summer long.
UMA Absolute Anti Aging Body Oil
If you're going to use either of those products, you'll need a great body oil. UMA's Absolute Anti Aging Body Oil is a powerhouse of essential oils designed to deeply hydrate and revitalize your skin. To incorporate this into your spa night, begin by taking a warm shower or bath to open up your pores. Once you've gently patted yourself dry, take a few pumps of the body oil in your palms. Warm the oil by rubbing your hands together. Start massaging the oil into your skin using circular, upward motions, focusing on any dry or rough areas. The oil will not only provide a deep level of hydration, but it also smells divine. The blend of sandalwood and rose essential oils create a calming scent that will aid relaxation and promote a peaceful mood. As the oil seeps into your skin, you'll feel nourished, smooth, and most importantly, blissfully relaxed. Remember, a little goes a long way, and your skin will absorb just what it needs, leaving no greasy residue behind.
SOH Melbourne's Verdant White Matte Glass Candle
No spa night is complete without a soothing aroma wafting through the air, and SOH Melbourne's Verdant White Matte Glass Candle is perfect for creating that serene ambiance. To use it, place the candle in a safe, comfortable space where you plan to relax, be it your bathroom, living room, or bedroom. Before lighting, make sure the wick is trimmed to about 1/4 inch to ensure even burning. Once lit, allow the candle to burn for at least two hours during the first use. This helps establish a full melt pool and prolongs the life of your candle. The Verdant White Matte Glass Candle exudes a lush blend of green stems, leafy ferns, and fresh cut grass, immediately transporting you to a calm and tranquil garden. The soft light and refreshing scent will complement your at-home spa night, making it a deeply relaxing and sensory experience. Allow the soothing fragrance to fill the room as you unwind and indulge in your self-care rituals.
Venn's Collagen Intensive Phyto-Retinol Renewal Mask
Is it a spa night at-home if you don't have a sheet mask? We think not. To use this luxurious mask, begin with clean, dry skin. Apply a generous layer of the mask all over your face, avoiding the immediate eye area. As you spread the mask, take a moment to massage it into your skin, stimulating circulation and enhancing absorption. Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes, during which you can soak in your bath, read a book, or simply close your eyes and relax. The mask, packed with plant-based retinol alternatives, collagen, and hydrating ingredients, will work to rejuvenate your skin, enhancing elasticity, minimizing fine lines, and boosting brightness. After the time is up, rinse off the mask with warm water and pat your face dry. Follow up with your usual skincare routine. You'll be left with a glowing, youthful complexion that feels just as good as a professional facial.
And there's more where all this came from! We have everything you need to have your perfect at-home spa night to revitalize and rejuvenate all summer long.
