12 Affordable Ideas for a Relaxing DIY Spa Day at Home

When was the last time you took the time to pamper yourself? Truly slow down, take a break from your busy routine, and focus on caring for yourself. Chances are, you're due for a relaxing self-care day. From nourishing your skin to revitalizing your hair, there's a lot you can do to reset. Get inspired by these 12 affordable spa day ideas you can do in the comfort of your home. 

1. Warm, relaxing bath

Dim the lights, light candles, and dip into a warm bath to unwind. Get the most out of it with a colorful and fragrant homemade bath bomb.

2. Shampoo massage

Spend 5 minutes massaging your scalp with some DIY shampoo. Not only does it feel good, but it also promotes hair growth.

3. Deep hair conditioning

Hair masks nourish and revitalize your hair, making it look silkier and shinier. Coconut oil is a good, affordable product you can use. Leave it in overnight for better results.

4. Cleansing exfoliating session

Brown sugar and coffee grounds are great for removing dead skin. Mix either one with liquid coconut oil and massage over your skin.

5. Oil facial cleansing

Oil cleansing cleans the skin but isn't harsh on the skin's healthy microbiome. Just a few drops of olive oil can go a long way.

6. Hydrating face mask

Face masks are the poster child of at-home spa day ideas. You can easily find inexpensive hydrating face masks at beauty stores and some grocery stores—or you can make your own. A matcha face mask is soothing and has antioxidant properties.

7. Gua sha facial

Gua sha rollers drain fluid build-up, reducing puffiness. While they're not cheap, you can get similar results with a spoon. Chill it in the freezer for a few minutes and run it over puffy areas of your face and neck.

8. Sugar lip scrub

Mix brown sugar and olive oil to make an affordable sugar scrub for your lips. It's a must for any spa day kit, especially during the winter.

9. Manicure and pedicure

Mani-pedis are great self-esteem boosts. And fortunately, not that hard to do at home. With the right nail care supplies, you can do it in an hour.

10. Flavorful spa water

Be sure to pour yourself homemade flavorful water to enjoy during your DIY spa day. It's simple: throw orange and cucumber slices into a pitcher and fill it with ice water.

11. Relaxing ambient sounds

Enjoy a free ambient sound playlist to set the spa mood. Forest sounds, ocean sounds, wind sounds—there's a lot to choose from.

12. Guided meditation

Finally, follow a guided meditation session to nourish your mind and soul. At first, it may be difficult to concentrate, but turning it into a weekly practice can make all the difference in your mental health.
