Are your fins frayed from busy days? Feeling washed up and overwhelmed? When the world seems like it’s spinning too fast, let your mermaid hair down and unfurl your flippers with a mermaid spa day in the comfort of your own home!
Before you begin…
It’s a good idea to get together a few things to create the ultimate spa ambiance. Warm up some towels using a towel warmer, or by throwing them in the dryer for a few minutes. Create a playlist of relaxing songs or tropical ocean sounds to soothe your stressed-out mind. Amp it up with candles or an essential oil diffuser for a calming aroma!
Need something to sip on? Having a pitcher filled with fruit-infused water will not only help you stay hydrated during your spa session, but can give your body a detoxifying cleanse.
Modern Honey compiled a list of the different benefits of certain fruits, as well as some recommended fruit-infused detox water combinations!
Once you have created your dream spa setup, you’re ready for the fun part: Treating yourself!
One of the most popular kinds of spa treatments, facials help to clean your face, clear out pores and acne, and revitalize skin for an overall healthy glow.
