How to turn your bathroom into a hammam-style spa, instantly


If it’s been a while since your last OOO day—and, OMG, so long until your next break, your stress levels are probably at a record high.

Which calls for a spa day. But instead of buying a round-trip ticket to Marrakesh, you can bring the restorative treatment to you with hammam (also known as a Turkish bath).

“Hammam is the OG ancient bathing ritual, which includes the elements of steam, soaking, scrubbing, and massage,” says Well+Good senior beauty editor Ali Finney. “You don’t have to travel the world to find a hammam, you can build one right in your own bathroom.”

First, it calls for a dream team of materials to cleanse and chill. Specifically, black soap, sea-salt scrub, and body cream by Rituals, the luxe essentials inspired by traditional self-care practices.
