At woods_, we love to praise our self-care days. There’s nothing like indulging in a nourishing and relaxing routine to reload your batteries for the upcoming week. And what screams (or rather, calmly whispers) relaxing selfcare like a spa day? Let us take you through our guide on how you can bring the spa experience to your bathroom.
Prepare your canvas
Breakouts can stem from various factors such as our diet, mood, genetics, and the list goes on. But in many cases, dirty skin is the villain that sabotages the even and satisfied skin we dream of. And we all know it’s hard to relax when you’re dealing with hurtful blemishes and irritated skin. Therefore, it’s super-important to cleanse away all the build-up of dirt, sweat, and other skin-harming substances your face has gathered through the day, to make your skin a clean canvas once again.
Our Cleansing Balm is the perfect step 1 in your spa-day routine. This 100% natural and vitamin-infused cleanser effectively melts away the day to leave your skin smooth, supple, and ready for the relaxing treatment that follows.
Dead skin cells? Haven’t heard of it
The next step deserves a spot in everyone’s weekly routines – unfortunately, many miss out on the many benefits of exfoliating. And by now, you might be thinking: But I already cleansed my skin? And you’re right, you did.
As you cleansed away the outer layer of dirt and build-up of the day – maybe even some left-over make up – you made your skin ready for a relaxing deep cleanse. Introducing: Deep Cleansing Scrub.
This purifying exfoliator contains finely grounded volcanic rhyolite to effectively deep cleanse the skin. The combination of volcanic rock and glycolic acid allows this wonderworker to effectively lift away dead skin cells, ensuring the following products easier access to the skin, and making them perform even better. Get ready for a plump, nourished, and soft to the touch finish.
You guessed it: A mask
Let’s be honest, what really is a home spa without a wonderful mask?
Our Intense Hyaluronic Mask is the perfect next step in your selfcare routine. With its high concentration of active ingredients and antioxidants from natural sea buckthorn, this mask will enrich your skin with immediate and intense hydration, leaving it smooth and with a youthful glow.
Leave it on for 10-15 minutes while watching your favorite show, knitting, or doing something else you love. That’s true relaxation if we’ve ever heard of it!
After rinsing off your mask, apply your Niacinamide Lifting Mist for instant hydration and plump skin. Formulated with calming aloe vera and organic cucumber extract, it’ll leave your skin protected and refreshed.
Eat, sleep, moisturize, repeat
Moisturizing is hopefully already part of your daily skincare – but that doesn’t make it any less important on the days you want to cater a little extra for your skin. And when it comes to ultimate hydration, our Sculpting Face Gua Sha and Vitamin Face Oil are a match made in heaven.
Made of naturally cooling citrine crystal, our gua sha sculpts, tightens, and increases the blood circulation while allowing the nourishing ingredients from the face oil to work even deeper into the skin. Drench your skin in the vitamin-infused face oil and glide the gua sha across your face 5-6 times in outwards and upwards direction using medium pressure to work the product and all its benefits well into the skin. Truly the perfect way to round off your home spa experience!
