YOUR 6-STEP DIY SPA GUIDE
Step 1: Set the Mood
Nothing compares to winding down with a warm bath after a long, hard day. But to really get those spa vibes going, you need to set the mood first. To make your bath more spa-like, try lighting a few candles and spritz a few sprays of Truly’s Moon Shower Adaptogen Spa Mist.
Formulated with adaptogenic herbs such as Ashwagandha and calming ingredients like lavender and eucalyptus oil, this mist sets the tone for a chilled-out bath session.
Then sprinkle a handful of Truly’s Space Candy R&R Bath Rocks into your water-filled bathtub. This deeply therapeutic bath soak features a unique combination of natural healing salts, botanical infusions, and essential oils to help relieve stress and sore muscles.
If you plan to do your spa day a little later in the evening, this soothing scent will help you fall straight to sleep.
Step 2: Soak and Cleanse
While you’re soaking, smother your body in a blend of super herbs with Truly’s Moon Jelly Body Cleanser.
This cleanser is made with a blend of ashwagandha, chamomile, and shatavari to calm the mind and body, as you wash away the day’s dirt and grime.
Ashwagandha also helps the skin cope with environmental stressors like UV rays, pollution, and lack of sleep. While chamomile helps to calm the skin and ease irritation or inflammation. It really is the ultimate relaxation combo. Did we mention it also soothes sore muscles?
Step 3: Chill Out in a Jelly Face Mask
A spa day just wouldn’t be a spa day without a face mask. Truly’s Dew You Love Me Jelly Face Mask is a super cute and fun choice – plus, it’s perfect mask in which to snap selfies. You know, just in case you want to show your friends and followers what you’ve been up to (and show off your awesome DIY spa skills!).
With high-performing ingredients such as retinol and vitamin C, this mask isn’t just there to look pretty. It will leave your skin bright, dewy, and luminous.
Leave it on for 10-20 minutes, while you soak (and possibly drift off!).
Step 4: Scrub from Head to Toe
Your skin needs regular exfoliation in order to get rid of dirt, grime, and dead skin cells, and to stay smooth and healthy.
Scrub your body with Truly’s Matcha Scrub for an antioxidant-loaded invigorating scrub.
Packed with vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants, this hydrating body scrub is boosted with matcha green tea to help ease inflammation, reduce redness, and rejuvenate the skin. It will also leave your skin feeling super smooth and silky, not to mention looking utterly dewy from top to bottom.
Made with natural sugar and dead sea salt granules, this scrub is a natural humectant which binds to glycolic acid to help retain moisture and clear the skin. At the same time, it’s delicate enough not to irritate skin.
Step 5: Indulge in a Pleasant Shaving Session
Every enjoyable shaving session begins with using the right cream. The right smell, texture, and performance makes all the difference.
Truly’s Coco Cloud Luxury Shave Butter is a divine-smelling, five-oil protecting blend that delivers an ultra-close shave, while offering protection against razor burn, cuts, and ingrown hairs.
Suitable for all skin types, Coco Cloud contains a nourishing blend of coconut milk and argan oil to release a lather that moisturizes the skin and prepares it for a smooth shave.
Plus, a smooth shave preps your skin for moisturizer.
Step 6: Layer on the Body Butter
Now that you’re all shaved and squeaky clean, it’s time to immerse yourself in luxurious hydration. Water strips the skin of its natural oils, which is why you need to moisturize immediately after drying yourself off. The sooner you slap on the lotion, the better the product penetrates the skin.
Truly’s Coco Rose Fudge Whipped Body Butter is a beautiful blend of coconut and rose with the most delicate aromas of feminine florals. This body butter will nourish, brighten, and hydrate your skin and leave you smelling fabulous.
Whipped to perfection, this lightweight consistency glides onto the skin without leaving behind an oily residue. Rich in shea butter, collagen, and antioxidant-loaded algae, it feeds dry and aging skin with replenishing emollients to deliver a smooth and dewy-looking appearance.
You can decide how the rest of your evening goes. Want some advice? We recommend making yourself a calming cup of chamomile tea or a mug of warm almond milk, then slipping under fresh sheets for some quality Zzzz.
Falling asleep should be easy after this relaxing spa session. It shouldn’t take much longer than 20 minutes before you find yourself drifting off. So finish off the day by getting some beauty sleep!
