Creating Your At-Home Spa

Creating Your At-Home Spa

Embracing the tranquility of a spa day is a luxury we all deserve, yet finding the time for such indulgence can often feel elusive. As someone who doesn't frequent spas regularly, I've come to cherish the importance of self-care in nurturing both the body and the mind. It's about more than just pampering yourself—it's about cultivating a profound sense of wholeness and confidence from within.

With Leaf Shave, creating an at-home spa has never been more accessible. Whether you're a seasoned spa enthusiast or simply yearning for a moment of respite in your own space, use our guide to elevate your self-care routine to new heights.

Dim the lights, cue up some soothing music, and let your worries drift away as you embark on a journey of relaxation and rejuvenation. Welcome to your personal oasis of calm and pampering.


*Pro Tip: Customize and experiment with essential oil blends in your diffuser to create a personalized ambiance that suits your mood—maybe lavender for relaxation or citrus for an energizing boost.

Prepare and Relax

  1. Begin by creating an ambiance of tranquility. Dim any harsh lights and let soothing music fill the air at a gentle volume.
  2. Enhance the atmosphere further by lighting candles or diffusing essential oils, allowing their calming scents to envelop your space.
  3. Ensure you have a large towel and washcloth within reach, ready to cocoon yourself in comfort.
  4. As you step into the shower, adjust the temperature to your liking.
  5. Let the warm water cascade over you while you relax and unwind.



The Experience

  1. Select your preferred razor and ensure it's equipped with fresh blades for optimal performance.
  2. Apply a few drops of Shave Oil to the area you'll be shaving. This adds glide and moisturizes your skin for a smoother experience.
  3. Rinse the razor frequently and take your time.
  4. Once you've finished shaving, switch to cooler water to invigorate your senses and promote circulation, leaving you feeling refreshed and revitalized.
  5. Pat your freshly shaved skin dry with your large towel.


The Grand Finale

  1. Begin by applying a few drops of Shave Oil to your face, focusing on the areas where you'll be using your Dermaplaner. This helps the Dermaplaner glide smoothly over your skin and provides added hydration.
  2. Gently dermaplane your face, removing peach fuzz and dead skin cells to reveal a smoother, more radiant complexion. If you have thicker, coarser facial hair, dermaplaning will work after the facial hair is removed.
  3. After dermaplaning, apply a Calming Serum to soothe and nourish your skin, paying extra attention to areas prone to irritation or redness. Allow the serum to fully absorb before moving on to the next step.
  4. Complete your skincare routine by locking in hydration with a moisturizer or face oil, leaving your skin feeling soft, supple, and deeply nourished. Need recommendations? Check out some favorites from skincare enthusiast Michelle Timuri here.
