Welcome back to Live Ahwatukee’s blog! Though a fun night out with dinner, drinks, and dancing can definitely do a person good, taking a night out to relax also has many benefits. Give yourself a few hours alone to recuperate and unwind. Your apartment is the perfect place to do so—you don’t even have to leave your home!
Start your evening by eliminating distractions. Turn off your phone so you can really focus and not have phone calls or texts getting in the way. Light a few candles. We especially like these from Anthropologie by Voluspa. Run a warm bath to relax and loosen your muscles.
A bath bomb is a great way to add scent and calming properties to your bath. Some have rose petals and different minerals to help you relax. Try these from Lush. They also offer bubble bars which create ton of fluffy bubbles in your bath. The bath bombs are fairly large so cut them into pieces and get a few uses out of them.
Skincare is another way to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. Dr. Jart is an excellent skin care brand. They make sheet masks for all types of skin. Sheet masks are a great alternative to jar masks. They are one time use and you can keep them in the fridge to make them extra cooling. There are some for brightening dull skin, moisturizing dry skin or healing problem skin. Find them online here. Add your favorite thick face lotion to really lock in moisture and make the most of the products you’ve used. Our favorite face lotion comes from Nars or Origins, available in most department stores or online.
Finish your spa night with a calming cup of tea. Chamomile is great and doesn’t have caffeine. Read a few chapters of a book and really let your mind wander elsewhere. You’ll certainly wake up feeling refreshed and rested and ready for a full day out and about in Puyallup, WA.
