While fall activities normally entail pumpkin picking, gazing at the slowly turning leaves, and sipping spiked cider, we can’t deny that we see many days spent cozied up at home in our future.
When it’s just too cold or gloomy outside, we all get that urge stay in and snuggle up with a good book (well, okay, Netflix too), wearing our fuzziest socks and warmest sweaters. But, if we’re going to spend the day indoors, we should all engage in a little self-care while we’re at it. And what could be better than some DIY action?
We turned to Beckah Jackman, the brains behind Birchrose + Co and a self-proclaimed DIY enthusiast, to come up with some amazing at-home spa recipes that are both easy and luxurious—and, of course, inspired by the crisp autumn weather around us. Being that she creates her own line of luxuriously simple and aromatic skin-care products (I mean, have you smelled her Pumpkin Scrub?) using only natural and recognizable ingredients, we figured she’d have a couple of go-tos up her sleeve that were simple enough for anyone to whip up.
Jackman created three easy DIY recipes so that we could turn our lazy Sundays into full-on pampering sessions this fall: a face mask, a hair mask, and a bath soak—all with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. This way, you can have a spa experience without having to put on anything more than your pajamas.
The bonus? All three recipes can be used together at the same time. Jackman suggests applying both the hair mask and face mask, then hopping in the tub to enjoy the soak for 15 minutes for the ultimate speedy spa treatment.
