This is why you’re seeing #SpaNightRoutine everywhere on TikTok

It's the self-care movement we’ve been waiting for

At this point, we’re basically experts at making DIY masks and lounging in a bubble bath surrounded by a soothing selection of the best scented candles. For most, our beauty routine has quickly evolved into a form of self-care.

As we search for new beauty hacks and the best vitamin C serums to add to our skincare routine, you may have noticed scrolling through TikTok that a new beauty trend has taken the app by storm.

It seems as though TikTok users are no longer obsessed with self-tanning drops, and have instead, moved on to the #SpaNightRoutine trend. It has grown so much in popularity that it has racked up almost 800 million views and counting.

What sets this trend apart from other beauty fads, though, is that it’s asking us to upgrade our significant other’s self-care. Whether it’s your boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend, sibling, etc, this latest trend is having people come together to celebrate and treat them to a spa-inspired night. 

How does the #SpaNightRoutine trend work?

The trend can work in one of two ways. Either you give your significant other a spa-like treatment, which can consist of them cozied up in a robe while you provide a plethora of beauty options (sheet masks, clay masks, creams, serums, etc) and an array of fluffy headbands—to help keep their hair out of their face, and of course, for the aesthetic. Or, your significant other can try a beauty practice on you. It’s whichever you choose. 

To take it a step further, some users are also seen using a jade roller on their significant other’s face while the face mask does its thing, or they’ll treat them to a pedicure or brow plucking—the total VIP treatment.

What's the #SpaNightRoutine song?

We officially have a new self-care anthem. Thanks to the trend, it seems that most of the videos are using the same song titled  “You Got It” by Vedo. While it may seem like a strange choice, it’s the lyric “get ya glow girl” that truly turns this into a beauty-day bop.

While we gush over these adorable #SpaNightRoutine videos, rather than scroll through TikTok admiring this trend, give it a shot yourself with your significant other or bestie. It definitely adds some fun to a routine we typically spend time doing alone.
