You may have found yourself spending lots of extra time at home over the last month and a half. We understand the feeling. So we’re encouraging you to take advantage of this time at home, especially if you live at our Northbrook Apartments, where you’re treated to some of the most luxurious amenities on Skokie!
Northbrook Apartments With Oversized Tubs For Spa Night At Home
This week we’re reminding you to kick back and relax. Consider spending one night this week soaking in your oversized garden tub in your deluxe designer bathroom.
Tips To Create A Perfect Spa Night At Home:
Put your phone away, or put it out of reach. Consider playing some calming tunes or even waterfall sounds. They don’t allow you to bring your phones into any of the fancy Chicago spas, so treat your Northbrook at-home spa the same way! Turn the ringer off if you can so you’re not distracted with a call during your relaxing evening.
Use warm towels and essential oils for your face. Consider this the at-home facial you’ve needed for weeks. We recommend getting a few washcloths or small hand towels and getting them extremely hot (but be careful not to burn yourself!) to gently rub over your face; perhaps to wipe off makeup, use as an exfoliating scrub, or to wipe away the day’s grime. If you have essential oils, put a few drops in the hot towel to breathe in the relaxing and calming aromas, like lavender or rose.
Grab all those facial masks and other scrub treatments that don’t ever leave your bathroom cabinet. You’ve been saving them for a rainy day, and guess what? Today is that rainy day. Bring out the bath bombs, loofah sponges, facemasks, and whatever else you have, and put them to good use.
Set the ambiance. Use candles and even grab a glass of wine from your built-in wine chiller to enjoy while soaking in your luxurious bathtub. There’s no one there to bother or judge you, so indulge and take some time to pamper yourself. Think of what you enjoyed at your last spa treatment or one you saw on TV and try to duplicate those fancy experiences.
Slice up cooled cucumbers for your eyes. Cucumbers have an anti-inflammatory effect that help reduce puffiness, while their high water concentration allows for extra hydration.
Try an at-home hair mask while you’re in the tub. Any of these at-home hair masks can be made with products you probably already have in your kitchen.
You’ve focused on your face and eyes; don’t forget about the rest of your body. Jump on the dry-brushing trend as a simple and easy way to get glowing skin. “Dry brushing increases blood flow and stimulates collagen production, which will help to strengthen your skin. It also dramatically increases elasticity, so it's great for lifting and toning,” says Glamour.
Try a DIY sugar scrub, like one of these.
Our top tip for making your Northbrook apartments perfect for an at-home spa day is to try and push all the work stuff, to-dos, and daily hassles out of your head – even for just a few minutes. A common technique for meditation is to remember that it’s ok to allow thoughts to come into your head. Give them a few seconds of your time, then push them out of your mind and go back to enjoying your at-home spa night. We think you deserve it!
