16 Simple Ways To DIY Your Own Spa Night

Diply 20 Apr 2018

Ladies, I think we can all agree that spa days are good days. But between booking appointments, actually going to them, and forking out the cash to pay...going to the spa can also be a bit of a chore.

Plus, nothing beats spending a night alone. Basking in complete solitude and watching a classic comedy in a pair of pajamas and slippers is the best. Right? Right. Upgrade a much-needed night at home to a chic, adorable, and relaxing spa night with all the goodies anyone could ever ask for.

Check out some of the glitter, unicorn, and rainbow spa recipes we found, select a few favorites, and create the ultimate at-home spa night! Much better than a real spa. We promise. After all, do other spas serve lemonade margs and unicorn glitter bath bombs?

Didn't think so.

1. Strawberry Infused Spa Water

Ok, so we'll start with some refreshments. Makeovers aren't complete without some proper hydration, and some sliced strawberries make it feel like a real spa! Super bougie, IMO.

You can also add some cucumber or lime, but TBH, whatever fruit you have on hand will probably work fine!

2. Rose Latte

Wrong! Not only does this naturally pink drink taste delicious, but it might even help you relax a little. Plus, I mean, it is so gorgeous. Like this latte is prettier than I will ever be.

Unicorns? Good. Scented, soothing bath salts? Good. Combining both for an adorable, pastel bath that has to put you in a good mood? Even better!

These bath truffles have the moisture-packed ingredients of a bubble bar, but the fizziness of a bath bomb. And, of course one of the prettiest rainbow color melts.

Cleansing the skin with...charcoal? Yes, turns out charcoal is an amazing ingredient for those who get a lot of blackheads and have oily, acne-prone skin. It cleans out clogged pores, like a 'lil superhero — trust me, speaking from experience here.

This mask has less than five ingredients, including activated charcoal, and coconut oil.

There, all three in one. Problem solved. You're welcome! Don't ask how someone thought of this pure magic, but they did, and for that we are all thankful.

Can't beet this homemade body butter for super soft, smooth skin. Use a few tablespoons of coconut oil, add some beet juice, and a few drops of peppermint essential oil, and done!

Don't panic about the pink. This formula doesn't stain the skin, so you won't look like a giant pink monster after applying it.
