If you are feeling overwhelmed by life and burned out, nothing is better than a spa night at home. Simple acts of self-care like a facial, bubble bath or even a body scrub can work wonders when things are strained. Instead of making a trip to a fancy day spa, make it an at-home spa experience. Pull out some scented candles, make some homemade spa water (with lemon and cucumber slices), then put on a relaxing playlist and unwind. 

Here are six new products to try at your next spa night.
