Between the bathtub, sinks, and stain-proof tiles, you have every opportunity to skip the exorbitant prices without passing on the relaxation you'll find at the nicer spas in your area. It will certainly be more effort on your part to set up the experience, but we promise you won't regret it. If you live in the apartments in Sherman Oaks, CA and love your spa days, here's a good way to have more of them without overspending.
1. Invest in Your Accoutrement
From the bath products you use to the towels you dry off with, you may want to think about your home spa as an investment. If you need to, budget out what you would have spent at your next two spa excursions and put every cent of it toward fancy products you never would have considered before. If you're planning to do your nails, buy the files, polish, and pumice stone you'll need. Set aside a big fluffy robe to be used only on spa days.
2. Candlelight Everywhere
Make it a rule that you won't even attempt to turn on the bathroom light once your spa session has started. Use candles (either scented or unscented) to give the room a whole new glow. Some people like scented candles to give the room a calming aura, but others find the smell clashes too much with other products. Buy inexpensive tealights, and don't be afraid to use them!
3. Take Your Time
The whole point of a spa is to tune out the world and tune into yourself. Turn off your phone, grab a book, and soak in the tub for a while. Use rose water to make your pores a little smaller for healthier skin, and put cucumbers over your eyes to eliminate the bags (it's a cliche for a reason). Use an avocado mask to moisturize hair that's been dried out or damaged by anything from color to the sun.
Not every bathroom has the amenities to be turned into the perfect spa for you. If you're looking for a place where you can really relax, Chase Knolls Apartments may be the key to having an apartment that lives up to your standards. Call today to learn more.
