As a bookish Harvard law student once sarcastically yet accurately said in the Hollywood Classic Legally Blonde, the spa is the mothership to every well-manicured American. It’s a safe space to ignore our outside obligations and indulge in our vanities, where we’re buffed, scrubbed, and polished into our most radiant, fabulous selves. While a premium spa session will cost you as much as an out-of-network therapist, its mental health benefits are almost as effective.
However, people may be reluctant to visit spas, which is understandable given the pandemic. But remember, this is America. We’re hardwired to build our conveniences within arm’s reach. We’ve converted our basements into movie theaters, garages into home gyms, and even bathrooms into spas. Unlike building a home gym or theater, turning your bathroom into a tranquil, world-class spa oasis doesn’t require bulky equipment or tech wizardry. Ahead are the best home spa products for your bathroom, so you can balance your inner qi and make every day a spa day.
When establishing a personal home spa, you probably need to upgrade (or change) everything, from your bathroom’s overall atmosphere to its furnishings — including your shower curtain. Hence, the Parachute Shower Curtain is the upgrade you need. Crafted from premium Turkish cotton, this plush shower curtain adds a luxurious, earthy, or minimalist appeal that befits most home spas when installed. Go ahead and enjoy a rejuvenating bath, for Parachute’s shower curtain ensures you get the ultimate privacy you need during your spa day.
If you’ve ever been tempted to swipe those luxe bathrobes at five-star hotels, this one’s for you. Known for their ultra-plush bed sheets, Brooklinen has made some equally comfy robes from Turkish cotton, and they feel like a soft, yuppie embrace.
