How to create a mum to be spa day at home

Here's how to create your own mum to be spa day at home:

1. Start with a relaxing bath

A nice bath is the key to any good spa day! Add some soothing aromatherapy oils or bath salts to help you relax even further. Add a handful of lavender flowers to your bathtub to give your bath some extra oomph.

2. Exfoliate your skin

After your bath, give your skin a good scrub with an exfoliating body wash or sugar scrub. This will help to get rid of any dead skin cells and leave your skin feeling smooth and soft.

3. Moisturize from head to toe

After exfoliating, it's important to moisturize your skin to prevent it from drying out. Apply a rich body lotion or body butter all over your body, paying special attention to any dry areas such as your elbows and knees.

4. Give yourself a facial

Now that your skin is all exfoliated and moisturized, it's time for a facial! Use a gentle cleanser to wash your face, then apply a soothing face mask. There are plenty of great recipes for homemade facial masks online. Or you can purchase a quality mask from a beauty store. Relax for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off the mask. Finish by applying a light moisturizer.

5. Give yourself a pedicure

Soak your feet in a footbath, then scrub them with a pumice stone or foot file. Trim your nails and apply your favourite polish. Your toes can be a bit difficult to reach if you're pregnant, so ask a friend or family member for help if you need it. Or, call on a mobile beauty therapist to give you a professional pedicure in the comfort of your own home.

6. Put on some comfy clothes

After your spa treatments, it's time to slip into something more comfortable. Choose an outfit that is both comfortable and stylish. loungewear is always a good option. Or you can even just wear a robe or towel if you're not planning on going anywhere.

7. Make a healthy snack or smoothie

Now that you're all relaxed and refreshed, it's time to refuel with a healthy snack. Choose something light and nutritious that will give you energy without making you feel too full. Fresh fruit, yoghurt, or whole-wheat toast are all good snack options. A refreshing smoothie is another great choice. Blend up some fruits and vegetables, add some protein powder or Greek yoghurt, and enjoy.

8. Enjoy some relaxation time

Finally, it's time to just sit back and relax. You can read your favourite book, listen to music, or watch a movie. Or, if you're feeling extra lazy, just take a nap! Relax and unwind with a cup of chamomile or lavender tea before bed.

1. Avoid hot tubs and saunas
