It’s the time of year when the weather is cold and gloomy and hibernating indoors is the only activity that sounds appealing on days off. Since you’re going to wind up spending more time inside than out, there’s no better way to relax than dedicating an afternoon to revitalize yourself from head to toe. While the thought of trekking out to the spa in the cold may like it’s too much effort to bear, you can still enjoy spa-like treatments at home where the Netflix and pajamas are. Bath soaks, masks, and exfoliators are just a few beauty treatments you can indulge in at home that don’t require a second set of hands to get the job done. Read on for ten ideas on how you can treat yourself to some much-needed pampering at home when it’s too miserable to head outdoors.
1. Lush Cosmetics Yoga Bath Bomb
Grab a page-turning novel, light your favorite candle, and indulge in a calming, long soak in the tub—you deserve it.
2. Deborah Lippmann Cuticle Lab
Proper cuticle treatment is often neglected outside of the nail salon. Give yours the TLC they need with Deborah Lippmann’s four-step kit that includes a nourishing oil, exfoliator, repair cream, and pusher—your future manicures will thank you.
3. Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask
It wouldn’t be a beauty treat-yourself-day without a mask. Peter Thomas Roth’s hydrates and fights signs of aging and stress with caffeine and peridot. Plus, it’s infused with 24K gold and colloidal gold—and you really can’t get more luxurious than that.
4. Kocostar Foot Therapy
Sandal season may be long over, but feet can still build up calluses, cracked heels, and tough skin in socks and boots. Like its facial counterparts, a foot sheet mask will work to hydrate, soothe, and exfoliate for softer, healthier feet.
5. Herbivore Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish
Slough off winter dead, dry skin with an exfoliating body polish. Herbivore’s all-natural Coco Rose formula with virgin coconut oil and Moroccan Rose gently exfoliates and hydrates, plus leaves a pleasant lingering scent.
6. Ellis Brooklyn Verb Excellent Body Milk
Treat parched skin to a tall glass of milk with Ellis Brooklyn’s luxurious, all-natural body milk. Notes of mandarin, bergamot, basil, and musk will leave skin as lovely as its scent, and rosehip, meadowfoam, and camellia oils work to protect and lock in moisture.
7. SK-II Signs Eye Mask
Recover from a late night, or stressful workweek, with an under-eye mask. SK-II’s will brighten dark circles and minimize fine-lines and puffiness so you’ll look refreshed and awake when you have to leave your house.
