Going out tonight? Neither are we. With winter howling outside, forget your club night FOMO and enjoy this perfect, relaxing at-home spa evening.
Have you tried dry brushing yet? It’s great for exfoliating skin, and also may help your lymphatic system. To dry brush, brush in long, smooth strokes from your extremities - starting at your feet - towards your heart. You can even dry brush your face. It will give your skin a healthy glow.
Tata loves a good warm oil treatment for beautiful locks. She applies vinegar to her hair to make it smooth and shiny, and then coats it with a mixture of four warm oils: jojoba, avocado, argan, and coconut. Massage your hair well and cover it with a shower cap to prevent a mess. Leave this mixture on for about a half hour and rinse away for beautiful, shiny hair.
Here’s another Team Tata tip: we love to apply warmed Revitalizing Body Oil or Redefining Body Balm on our hair as a nourishing pre-shower treatment. Leave your hair treatment on for about a half hour and rinse away for beautiful, shiny hair!
Improve your tub time with some simple tips. We love lighting Palo Santo an hour or before the bath to cleanse the air, and then right before we get in, we’ll mix a few drops of Aromatic Stress Treatment into an essential oil diffuser (we like this zen option).
Then try Tata’s current bathtime trick: she mixes Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Nurturing Bath Essence with Susanne Kaufmann’s Herbal Whey Bath. Polish your body with Smoothing Body Scrub and glow from head to toe with Revitalizing Body Oil.
Chill music is a must. Check out our team’s playlist here.
No spa day is complete without a decadent skincare regimen. In colder months, we go for an ultra-hydrating routine to truly treat tired, dull skin. Start with a blissful double cleanse: we like Nourishing Oil Cleanser to melt away makeup and soften skin, followed by Purifying Cleanser to deep clean our pores and combat daily pollutants.
Next, we mask. We like Resurfacing Mask for that instant “I-just-had-a-facial” glow, but since it’s your spa evening, why not multi-mask? It’s a powerful way to get seriously gorgeous skin.
Once you’ve rinsed your skin clean, apply your favorite essence (we love Hydrating Floral Essence for a much-needed boost of Hyaluronic Acid) and then apply your serum. Winter skin can look a little dull, so Concentrated Brightening Serum is a a team favorite right now. Apply your favorite eye cream (we’re all wearing Boosted Contouring Eye Mask), and finally, massage Crème Riche, our richest moisturizer ever, with a jade roller.
Feel Right at Om
A little meditation practice is the perfect way to deeply relax your mind after you’ve cared for your skin and body. We love Adam Plack and Deepak Chopra’s Chakra Balancing Meditations. Or try a meditation on Insight Timer.
Finally, curl up for the evening in a cashmere robe and socks, light some beautifully-scented candles, and enjoy the night. We love watching a good, relaxing documentary - Chef’s Table and Moving Art are team favorites for chilling out.
