GOLDEN RULES FOR A DELIGHTFUL SPA DAY

GOLDEN RULES FOR A DELIGHTFUL SPA DAY

Discover a few tips to make your spa day go as smoothly as possible.

- Make sure you won’t be bothered: start by checking that your phone is off and out of sight.

- Prepare a cold drink before a hot bath: the heat can get overwhelming very fast! Try a spice-infused water recipe with mint, apple and cinnamon to chase the gloomy days away. Let it brew in the refrigerator for an hour.

- Set your tools: have fresh towels and all your beauty and bathing products at arm’s reach to avoid getting back out.

- Dim the lights: light a Lavender Perfumed Candle or use a White Blossom Home Diffuser to create a relaxing, aromatherapy spa atmosphere.

A Delightful Shower

Enjoy a sensorial shower experience through the use of natural ingredients...


Make your shower a relaxing, aromatic haven: choose the texture and fragrance that will delight your senses most. We recommend our bestselling Almond Shower Oil. Easy to wash off, it leaves a subtle and mouth-watering scent of fresh almond. 


Extra tip: The water that you shower with should never be scalding hot! It dries your skin out. For best results, keep it close to body temperature.

TIME FOR A SCRUB!

Gently slough away dead skin cells to reveal soft and smooth skin! 


Looking for durably moisturized skin? Go for Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Scrub, a rich and creamy scrub with 10% Shea Butter that will moisturize your skin as it sloughs off dead skin cells. If you feel like trying a more sensorial care, Almond Shower Scrub is made for you! Let yourself smell its delicious scent and enjoy the silky finish of almond oil.


Extra tip: Make sure to scrub twice a week, but no more: exfoliating too often may strain your skin. 

Did you know? Most of L’Occitane’s scrubs use soluble (sugar, salt) or biodegradable (crushed almond shells, apricot kernel powder) particles, which won’t damage your skin and are environmentally friendly.

GIVE YOUR HAIR A TREAT

In your bath, give yourself the time to take extra-good care of your hair. 

Choose a gentle but repairing cleanse. Use Repairing Shampoo to clean your hair without stripping it of its natural hydrolipidic film. 


Take care of your hair with a mask: follow-up with Repairing Hair Mask to deeply moisturize and replenish your hair. Apply on wrung-out hair, leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse. 


Extra tip: When you apply a hair mask, give your hair a boost with a healthy scalp massage. It will stimulate micro-circulation and contribute to thicker, fuller hair.

Finalize your spa ritual by giving your hands and feet a full reboot. To soothe your hands and feet in depth, follow this regimen.


- Once or twice a week, start by applying Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Scrub to soften your feet while sloughing off dead skin cells.

- Take extra care of your hands: apply Shea Butter Nail Cuticle Nourishing Oil to help soften and nourish your nail cuticles for easier pushing back. Apply by gently massaging your fingers to help the formula penetrate more efficiently. 

- Finish by moisturizing your hands with Shea Butter Hand Cream. It will efficiently protect, nourish and comfort, leaving your skin smooth.
