You're never far from a spa – have one at home Getty

If you can't get away this summer but want to get a little TLC why not pamper yourself at home with some of these must-have products to create your very own home spa?

Set the mood with the iMantara range by Thai Square Spa. Jasmine & Rachawadee Room Spray not only smells heavenly but contains the natural power of Thailand's most fragrant botanicals. This pure, regal scent is reminiscent of summer evenings in Thai pavilions and will transport your home to make you feel as though you are sitting at an exclusive Thai spa. If you want to go a step further, this beautiful fragrance is also available in a massage and body oil. For more information contact Thai Square Spa www.thaisquarespa.com

If you're looking for baby-soft feet, Footner Exfoliating Socks are the way to go. These magical socks deeply exfoliate your feet by using a gentle acid that causes dead skin to peel off. That may sound disgusting, but what you are left with is incredibly smooth feet, that are sandal-ready.

Give yourself the perfect manicure with WAH London nail products. WAH founder Sharmadean Reid opened The WAH Nails salon in the East End of London where anything goes, colours designs or a simple manicure. Now with her own range on the high street, you can have affordable salon quality nail paints and tools at home and create your perfect manicure.

A relaxing body scrub bath and moisturise is always a must when it comes to home pampering and the Body Shop collections always excel themselves. This famous British cruelty-free brand has created a few that have caught my eye this summer. The new Virgin Mojito Body Scrub has a refreshing and zingy lime and mint scent; the Fuji Green Tea Bath Tea contains real green tea to relax and unwind your body; and the new Italian Summer Fig body butter soothes and moisturises the skin, and leaves a deliciously fruity yet sophisticated scent behind.

Want to get a summer glow? How about the new St Tropez Gradual In-Shower Tan? Streak-free and easy to apply, this three-minute tan infused with sweet almond oil is a no-fuss quick solution to self-tanning. Apply in the shower, wait for three minutes and wash off. Your tan will gradually develop and it is great for those new to tanning, and if you're in a rush.

Lastly, give yourself a mini facial. Grab your favourite facial oil, I recommend something like Superfacilist Una Brennan Vitamin C Renew Cleansing Oil, and give your face a massage. This is great for toning the face and bringing blood to the surface, which in time will you give you a more youthful appearance. One of my favourite make-up artists, Lisa Eldridge, has a great video on how to give yourself the perfect facial massage.

After cleansing your skin, a good face mask will help fight any problems you may be having. I love the Avène Soothing Moisture Mask when my skin is stressed, the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask when I'm having a dry day and need a boost of hydration, and the Murad Clarifying Mask, as when I'm oily and congested, this is great at clearing the pores.

I like to finish my face routine with my favourite facial oil, this is currently Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil. This blue oil is small yet powerful. A next-generation retinoid oil helps to reduce pore size, improve appearance of damaged skin and fights wrinkles. You see the difference overnight, everyone's going to think you've been away for two weeks.
