In 5 easy steps, you'll be prepared for a peaceful couple of hours. Read on to find out how to plan the perfect spa day!


1. Get Ready for Relaxation

The purpose of your spa day is to help you destress. You'll want to relax as much as possible. So, the first step to spa day planning is ensuring you have enough time for your self-care.

Then, try to calm your mind so that you can enjoy yourself. Consider turning off your phone to prevent any distractions. If necessary, gather supplies for facials, manicures, or whatever else you have planned.

2. Spend Time at the Sauna

Did you know that you can relax while reducing your risk for high blood pressure? Regular sauna use has been linked to a handful of practical health benefits. It will help your pores flush out toxins too.

Saunas are a comfortable space to hang out. Start your spa day by bringing your closest friends to the sauna with you. Indulge in the latest gossip while you unwind and take care of your body. If a sauna space is not available, you can use a sauna blanket with infrared technology, now you can enjoy a sauna experience in the comforts of your own home. 

3. Treat Your Skin With A Face Mask

No spa day is complete without face masks, and they're heaps of fun with the girls! There are so many different kinds to choose from – mud, clay, sheet...

Face masks are perfect to use after the sauna purifies your skin. Most offer skincare benefits like acne treatment or oil control. Some types can even be mixed and matched for treating different concerns.

4. Give Your Nails Some Attention

Every lady deserves polished nails! During your spa day, spend some time caring for your fingernails and toenails. Try painting them yourself, or splurge on a trip to the nail salon.

Manicures and pedicures keep cuticles trimmed and nails strong. Choose a lovely nail polish colour to finish the job. Proper nail care will keep you feeling well put together.

5. Top It Off With a Massage

An essential part of any relaxing day is a massage, so end your spa experience with one. It feels incredible and offers some health benefits. A calming effect will improve your mood by increasing the brain's serotonin levels.

Your muscles will lose tension while your stress levels are reduced. Try aromatherapy massage oils or a warm compress to enhance your experience.
Enjoy Your Spa Day

You and your girls deserve to treat yourselves to a spa day. Include these activities in your spa day itinerary to ensure heaps of relaxation. Your bond with friends will grow as you relax together.

Just as The Sauna Company says, saunas can be a "luxurious space to unwind and relax" while hanging out with a group of friends. After a calming spa day, you'll look and feel much better.
