Connecting Fashion Around The World
As men and women, we are very often searching how to look our best, how to care for our skin or have a beautiful skin, while we might not have the time to indulge or the financial means to hop and go to a beauty salon every time this happens. And today I want to share with you one major tip that will help you INDULGE and TAKE CARE of your skin from home. With this special “How to create a luxury hammam spa at home with Rituals”.

Ancient hammams or ‘bathhouses’ which date back as far as the Roman times are without a doubt amongst the spa rituals, one the most soothing and invigorating. With hot rooms, exfoliating stones, massage oils, mint tea fragrances and someone who is there to scrub you up and down, it is definitely a regime I wouldn’t say no to. But because I can’t fly you off on a luxury getaway treatment to Morocco, I decided to provide you with ways and products – inspired by the middle-east – to use instead. Here in Switzerland, having tried the hammam experience, I can say for that it is not the most common thing nor is it the most affordable. Unless you choose to have a feet or shoulder’s only treatment, or you buy a ticket from a good-deal specialised website. I myself LOVE a good old full scrub-down, but if you are shy and don’t want to be exposed naked in front of a stranger, then a feet or shoulder’s only deal is what you need. Or, you could just do it yourself at home with the new “Ritual of Hammam” products by Rituals. Which I have tested and loved as always. And the smell is ALSO divine, as always.
You need time & patience. So I suggest you choose a day make it into a SPA DAY aka [This is MY MOMENT, don’t you dare interrupt me, or I will cut you].
A bathroom, a bathtub (or shower) and hot water
… and of course to feel fresh(as fuck) and light as feather :)
First of you need to set the mood. Because the mood is everything. So you are going to need
… of the following flavours
… the candles may have several of these mixed, or you may get one type scented candles of 2-3 of the one listed above to achieve a nice sweet and spicy mix.
Make sure you light the candles 10 minutes prior to beginning your indulgent spa session so your bathroom will be imbued with the rich and exotic scent of Morocco.
This nourishing black soap will cleanse and purify your body whilst removing old skin cells, leaving you with a silky soft skin ready for exfoliation.
NOTE: In fact, black soap is one my favourite skin product. It is the best to keep your skin soft, I have been using black soap bar for years for my entire body and mostly to wash my face and I can’t get enough.
This will result in a deeply cleansed skin finish
A step to achieve the most purified skin.
With this step you will experience the ultimate softness of the foaming shower gel as I did. And you will feel a refreshed sensation on your skin.
Final touch to hydrate your skin.
TIPS: For people with extra dry skin, like myself, you might want to apply first some oil on your half wet skin, before putting on the cream. Especially for the winter season.
Would try this at home? Or Have you ever done it? And do you have another way to do?
