The last few months have been tough on many, and you’re probably spending more time at home. Instead of having FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) and wishing you were traveling the world or visiting luxurious spas across the country, we thought we’d encourage you to make use of your luxurious bathroom in your Clear Lake apartment for the ideal spa night at home.
Consider this your friendly reminder to kick back and relax. Try to spend one night this week or weekend relaxing and soaking in your oversized garden tub in your designer bathroom. Our designer bathrooms are a top selling point and just one of the luxurious apartment amenities you’ll find at The Caroline.
TIPS TO CREATE A PERFECT SPA NIGHT AT HOME:
Turn your phone off or at least put it out of reach. If you need your phone nearby for emergencies or to play some music to relax, try to play calming tunes or even waterfall sounds. They usually don’t let you to bring your phone into any of the fancy Houston spas, so treat your Clear Lake at-home spa night the same and follow all the “usual” rules. At the very least, turn the ringer off so you’re not distracted.
Put those facial masks and other scrub treatments in your cabinet to good use. If you’ve been saving or hoarding your fancy face treatments, oils, or wines for a rainy day or special occasion, consider this that special occasion. Bring out all the good stuff, including the bath bombs, fancy loofahs, facemasks, and anything else you can use. Maybe even that luxurious robe you bought as a splurge but never use.
Set the mood and ambiance. Depending what you’re in the mood for, set the room to reflect that. Light some of your favorite candles and maybe grab a glass of wine from your built-in wine chiller to enjoy while soaking the night away in your luxurious bathtub. Take time to indulge and pamper yourself. Think of what you enjoyed at your last spa treatment or what you saw on your favorite TV show and try to duplicate those experiences. Some prefer no sound whatsoever, and others prefer jamming out to their favorite tunes. There’s no right or wrong way to enjoy a spa night at-home, just figure out what you need.
Give yourself a facial with warm towels and essential oils. Maybe this will serve as the long overdue facial you’ve needed for months, but take solace knowing you can do it from the comfort of your own home and without a hefty price tag. Grab a few washcloths and get them hot (careful not to burn yourself!) to gently rub over your face; wiping off makeup or dirt and grime from the day. The washcloth also serves as an exfoliating scrub, which we could probably all use. If you have essential oils, put a few drops in the warm washcloth and slowly breathe in the relaxing and calming aromas. Lavender or rose scented essential oils are known for relaxation.

Don’t forget about the rest of your body. Have you ever tried dry-brushing? It’s a simple and easy way to get glowing skin in no time. “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,” according to Glamour.
Sliced, cooled cucumbers for your eyes. Cucumbers have an anti-inflammatory effect that help reduce puffiness, while their high water concentration allows for extra hydration, so get to slicing. Go the extra mile and set them in a bowl with ice like they do at a traditional day spa.
Enjoy an at-home hair mask. There are a number of at-home hair masks you can whip up with products you probably already have in your kitchen. Trust us, your hair will thank you!
