Between all of the disheartening headlines and stresses of everyday life, a relaxing day at the spa has never sounded so good. But the reality is that not all of us have the money or the time to spend on luxurious spa services. Happily, you can treat yourself to the same self-care at home. Beauty brands now offer every product you need to fake a fancy spa from your bathroom.
Celebrity esthetician Angela Caglia, who created a skin care line so women could treat themselves to a “self-love” ritual without stepping foot in her spa, suggests looking for products that are not only efficacious, but also sensorial with beautiful textures and scents to enhance the experience. Also key: a warm, fluffy robe.
“I believe self-care is so important, especially as women, because we give so much by nature. We need to give ourselves the permission to rejuvenate and feel renewed, so we give the best version of ourselves and not feel depleted,” Caglia says.

These add more than just a pretty touch; the blend of pink Himalayan salt, epsom salt, organic flowers, organic herbs, and organic essential oils promote detox, healing, and relaxation. It can even help soothe headaches and PMS.
Hungarian thermal water nourishes skin, beech tree bud extract works to minimize fine lines, and kaolin clay and magnesium sulfate help open pores and draw out impurities. The best part, though, is the warming sensation you feel on application.
“The rose quartz face roller assists with de-puffing, stimulation of blood flow for immediate glow, relaxing of fine lines and wrinkles, and can assist with serum penetration,” says Caglia. “It also feels amazing and is excellent for a hangover, too!”
