Step 6: Hydrate and Nourish
Sip on a refreshing drink like infused water with cucumber and mint to stay hydrated. Consider preparing a plate of fresh fruits or a light, nutritious snack to nourish your body from the inside out.

Step 7: Journaling Reflections
Take a few moments to jot down your thoughts and reflections. Write about what brings you joy, your goals, or simply express gratitude for the little things. Journaling can be a therapeutic way to declutter your mind.

Step 8: Comfortable Loungewear
As you wind down your spa day, slip into your favorite Portt loungewear. Whether it's a cozy robe or comfortable pajamas, let the soft fabrics embrace you, keeping you in a state of relaxation.
