The Most Relaxing Inexpensive Spa Treatments

What with Brexit stressing everyone out and all…


It seems that Brexit and all the ruckus in number 10 is starting to affect everyone, as it's been said that the number of people seeking out spa treatments is on the rise, reportedly by a whopping 30 per cent.

With the pound looking slightly insecure at the moment, why splash out on an expensive spa treatment, when you can do your own in the comfort of your own home?

Here are five treatments you can do at home, to chill out after all the madness that has been the last couple of weeks. 


We found the best below. 

Deep Conditioning Hair Mask

Your hair needs some extra attention sometimes, and a spa evening is the perfect opportunity to deep condition your locks. You can use coconut oil, just wash your hair, cover it in coconut oil and wrap up in a clean soft towel. 

Face Mask Facial


Facemasks are really good to deeply moisturise and clean your skin. You could go au naturelle and make your own with some fresh ingredients, following a recipe found here or here

Alternatively, you could pop to Lush and buy one of their fresh face masks. Just remember to put a clean flannel, eye mask or cucumber over your eyes for the complete spa experience.  


Part of what makes spa's so relaxing is the atmosphere. So make sure that you've got some aromatherapy oils burning in the background, or add a couple of drops of lavender oil to our bath. It'll help you sleep too!

Steam Facial 

A steam facial is a good follow up to the face mask. After you've cleaned the facemask away, open your pores by filling a large bowl with boiling water, essential oils, and placing it underneath your face. A clean towel over your head will help to trap in the steam. 

Exfoliate With A Body Scrub

Body scrubs are really good for exfoliating your skin, and it's so easy to forget to do it regularly. You can make your own coffee and coconut scrub using this recipe, or buy some already made in nice packaging that'll look cool in your bathroom. Coffee is meant to reduce tired eyes, so this scrub can be used on your face as well as body. 

If you're still craving a trip to the spa, then there are several council spas around the country! If you're based in London, then York Hall in Bethnal Green is not-for-profit and set in one of London's oldest Turkish Baths. Cowshed in Primrose Hill is also reasonable but lovely, with calm wooden decor and a homely feel.
