Treat Yourself to a Spa Day in Your Own Home


There’s no denying that indulging in a spa treatment feels very luxurious and is a great way to unwind and pamper yourself. But you don’t necessarily have to head to your local spa in order to treat yourself to a luxurious and relaxing spa experience because you can do it right in the comfort of your own home. Here is a short and simple guide that can help you learn how to recreate that same professional spa experience right at home. You can either plan just a few treatments or make a full day of it, that’s completely up to you!

Create a Spa Atmosphere

Make your bathroom or bedroom as peaceful as possible by clearing away clutter. Turn the lights down low, light some scented candles and put on some relaxing music. Be sure to have some nice absorbent bath towels on hand before you begin your treatments and for an added touch of luxury, place your towels on a warm radiator.

Take a Nice Warm Bath

There is nothing that can melt away stress and relax you from head-to-toe better than sliding into tub filled with warm water. Add a few drops of essential oil to the running water or some gentle bubble bath in your favorite scent. Just be sure the water is not overly hot so you don’t overheat and damage your skin.

Exfoliate Your Skin And Enjoy a Soothing Eye Mask

When soaking in the tub, use an exfoliating brush or pad to rid yourself of dead skin cells and to revitalize your skin for a healthy glow. Pay attention to those areas of your body which often get neglected like your elbows, knees and feet. Once you’ve finished exfoliating, treat your eyes to a soothing mask of cotton wool pads soaked in chamomile tea or slices of cucumber which are both cooling and refreshing.

Shower Off with Slightly Warm Water After Your Bath

When you’ve finished relaxing and soaking in the tub, it’s a good idea to shower off with slightly warm water to rid your skin of debris and to close the pores. You can also wash your hair while showering, using a good quality shampoo for your hair type, followed by an intensive moisturizing conditioner. Then step out of the shower and grab that warm towel to wrap around yourself. Use another towel to wrap around your hair.

Apply a Body Moisturizer

Sit down comfortably on a chair or stool and spend a few minutes moisturizing your body with a rich cream like cocoa butter. Not only will it feel amazing, but it will also provide your newly-cleaned skin with the moisture it needs, leaving it  soft and glowing. But because you’re about to apply a chemical peel to your face, skip moisturizing your face.

Do a Chemical Peel

Once you’ve finished moisturized your skin and are dressed comfortably, treat yourself to a chemical peel. A peel can do wonders for improving the texture and appearance of your skin and can serve as a solution for common skin problems like acne scars, light wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Use a high quality Dermalure chemical peel that’s been designed specifically for your skin type. If you’re new to peels, choose one featuring a milder strength acid so no more of the top skin than necessary will be peeled away. Then simply follow the instructions on the packaging to revitalize, nourish and refresh the skin on your face.

As you can see, it’s easy to create a spa atmosphere right in the comfort and privacy of your own home! Whenever you’re feeling stressed or in need of some pampering, just follow all or some of the steps above to help you feel renewed and refreshed both on the inside and out!

The Importance of Using a Good Pre-Shave Oil


At Dermalure, our goal is to provide the highest level of skin care in order to rejuvenate a person’s natural skin glow. One such way to help accomplish this is by using a shave oil before and after shaving. We understand that there are many people out there who shave without using any shave oils, so we want to give you a few reasons as to why you should consider using shave oils if you haven’t already.

The Benefits of Using Pre-Shave Oil

A pre-shave oil is designed to be applied as extra protection underneath a lather of foam before you shave. Using a pre-shave oil allows for a number of benefits. Just a sample of these advantages include the following:

  • Pre-shave oil provides an extra coating over the skin in order to protect it from the blade.
  • Pre-shave oil will soften your facial hair to allow the blade to glide more smoothly over your skin.
  • It will moisturize your skin and protect it from irritations or razor burn.
  • It provides a boost of hydration for your skin which is extra beneficial if you happen to have dry or flaky skin.

Applying a Pre-Shave Oil

To effectively apply a pre-shave oil, you’ll want to follow these steps.

  • Start your shaving session by heating up the skin on your face. You can do this by wrapping your face in a towel dipped in warm water for a few minutes or you can just begin your shave after having taken a shower. The heat will cause your pores to open and your hairs to soften.
  • Next, apply just a few drops of pre-shave oil to your hand and rub it together in your hands. There’s no need for any excessive amounts of oil.
  • Massage the oil into the skin you plan to shave, creating just a thin film of oil on your face.
  • You can then begin to lather up over the pre-shave oil and start your shave.

The Benefits of Using Aftershave

Aftershave is a product used after shaving that’s meant to cool the skin and prevent razor burn. Applying aftershave is simple; all you have to do is pour a very small amount of aftershave into your hand when you’re done shaving, rub it together in your hands, and then spread it evenly across the parts of your face that you just shaved. Aftershave helps in a multitude of ways, some of these including:

  • Aftershave will clear your pores of any bacteria, whether it was on the razor blade, the shaving cream, or elsewhere.
  • It will close and seal up your pores to keep any additional bacteria or dirt from getting inside them.
  • Aftershave can stop bleeding from cuts and help heal your facial skin faster.
  • It will also prevent infections of cuts.
  • It provides a cool and refreshing feeling when you’re done shaving.
