Sometimes we all need a little pampering. A cozy night in is the perfect way to relax and feel rejuvenated again after a long week! Keep reading to find out how to create your very own perfect night in.

Step 1: Apply a face mask

What is more relaxing than a face mask? They basically make you feel like a princess while pampering your skin. Freeman Beauty has an amazing selection of masks that are absolutely perfect for a spa night. The brand is famous for mixing feel-good fun with fresh botanicals that feel good, smell good, and are amazing for your skin. Beautiful skin is worth celebrating!

Step 2: Curl your hair for the next day

There's seriously nothing better than not having to even touch your hair when you wake up in the morning. My favorite thing to do when I'm having a little spa night is to curl my hair in preparation for the next day. Bed Head by Tigi has some amazing hair products that are perfect for just that. Bed Head is an innovative line of products that are actually inspired by street style.

After you've curled your hair, all you have to do is throw it into a bun on top of your head and you'll wake up with gorgeous, messy curls that are perfect for everyday wear.

Step 3: Make yourself a fancy drink

You can't have a spa night without a fancy drink, right? Spindrift Sparkling Water has some delicious flavors that will take your spa night to the next level. Spindrift is America's ONLY sparkling water that is actually made with real, squeezed fruit. Spindrift is literally sparkling water + real fruit...that's really it!

Pour your Spindrift into a cup over ice (because the color is to die for) and add a lemon or lime. You'll have the best Instagrammable shot to share with your friends.

Step 4: Snack on some tasty treats

We all need to treat ourselves sometimes with a delicious tasty treat. HI-CHEW Candy is actually made with real fruit and is a fun, chewy texture. HI-CHEW has been the number one soft-candy in Japan for years, and recently, this yummy candy has become popular all over Asia and America. Grab your favorite flavor of HI-CHEW Candy and put on your favorite Netflix show. Ah, relaxation.

Step 5: Plan out your week

For some of us, planning is truly therapeutic. I think we'd all like to plan out our days every week, but we simply don't have the time. When you're having a spa night, grab your Erin Condren planner and get to it! The Hardbound LifePlanner™ is a NEW look for the signature LifePlanner™ book. The gorgeous sleek, satin-finish makes the EC planner the perfect planner for the on the go gal.

Step 6: Get your bronze on

A good self-tan is a huge confidence booster. L'Oreal Paris has a variety of self tanning options that are both affordable and luxurious for the skin. Try out the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze ProPerfect Salon Airbrush Mist for your at home spa night, which will give you a gorgeous tan all over. The 360 degree micro mist gets all those hard to reach places. If you want a super quick self tanning option, you can try out the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes. The color develops in 2-4 hours and leaves a natural, streak-free tan behind!

Step 7: Get ready for bed

The key to a perfect at home spa night is to get to bed early to get that beauty sleep. First remove all your makeup, get into some super cozy pajamas, brush your teeth and then head off to bed. Be sure to keep your toothbrush safely stored in a Steripod clip-on toothbrush protector. These toothbrush protectors are great for flu season, and even finals week because they contain active vapors that keep your toothbrush clean and fresh for up to 3 months. The pod will also shield your toothbrush from tons of gross, airborne contaminants (yuck!). The ultimate feeling of relaxation is knowing that you aren't going to get sick from all the germs floating around, am I right?

Step 8: Choose your outfit for the next day

Mornings are hectic. By picking out your outfit the night before, you'll be eliminating a ton of stress in the morning. Getting organized for the next day is the perfect way to end your relaxing night in. Aeropostale offers a unique and fun style, so grab your favorite pair of Aeropostale denim pants and a cute top for the next day.
