The biggest necessity to have when doing a spa day is undoubtedly a face mask!

Although this mask is only available in stores, it’s totally worth going out for. Find a store near you.

Or if you’re more into DIY stuff you can make your own mask!


Avocado and honey mask for dry skin 

What you need:

  • 1/2 a very ripe avocado
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil

Mash or puree the avocado until it’s smooth and creamy, and then blend in the rest of the ingredients. Apply to your face, avoiding your eyes, and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Wipe your skin clean with a damp, warm cloth, or rinse your face with warm water in the shower.

Soothing oatmeal mask

What you need:

  • 1/3 cup instant oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1-2 tablespoons plain, unsweetened yogurt

Add the water to your oatmeal and stir for a few minutes until it’s plumped up nicely. Add the honey and yogurt, and put through a blender to smooth and combine it really well. Slather this all over your face, leave on for 10 minutes or so, and then wash with warm water. Pat dry.

*Note: this mask can also be used on eczema patches on other parts of your body, such as inner arms, the backs of your knees, your neck, etc. For areas other than your face, you can leave the treatment on for a bit longer before washing it off.

While you’re doing your face masks, you obviously have to have some great jams playing in the background. Make a playlist of your favorite songs, and crank the volume up. Have a dance party while your masks dry, I know my best friend and I do!

If you’re in need of some inspiration, I found really great playlists HERE and HERE.

And what is a spa day without mani/pedis?!

Last but not least, to top off your day of relaxation, have a moviethon!

Happy relaxing!
