Start by selecting weather-resistant furniture that complements the outdoor aesthetic and ensures longevity. Consider the Signature Chaise or Autograph Chaise for laying out under the sun and enjoying the ultimate poolside comfort. They are created with high-quality materials and are guaranteed to last for years.


Add in-pool accessories like an Autograph Chaise Headrest Pillow or Signature Chaise Shade to take the experience to another level.

So, whether you're basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip, these elements ensure your poolside experience is nothing short of extraordinary.


3. Create a Relaxing Atmosphere

Add pool plants or tropical foliage to have a touch of greenery. The plants' vibrant colors and varied textures create a visually appealing contrast to the water and other poolside features, promoting a sense of tranquility and connection with nature. The lush green foliage can serve as a backdrop that complements the pool's blue tones, providing a serene and inviting atmosphere to your backyard spa day.


Curate a playlist of soothing tunes to transport you to a tranquil oasis. Think gentle acoustic melodies or ambient sounds of nature that blend seamlessly with the gentle lapping of water. Set up waterproof speakers around the pool area to ensure a consistent and immersive audio experience without worrying about electronics meeting an untimely end.


Lighting is also important for creating the right atmosphere. Opt for warm, soft lighting to cast a calming glow across your backyard oasis. String lights or lanterns draped strategically around the pool area not only add a touch of charm but also provide functional illumination.


4. Skincare and Sun Protection

To enjoy your outdoor spa, use a mild and moisturizing cleanser to cleanse your face and eliminate any impurities. Exfoliation once or twice a week aids in shedding dead skin cells, resulting in a radiant complexion. Subsequently, apply a light, broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 to safeguard your skin against damaging UV rays.


Ensure to reapply, particularly after swimming, at intervals of every two hours. Hydration is critical, so moisturize to keep your skin supple and nourished. Opt for a water-resistant formula to protect your skin even after a dip. With a mindful skincare routine and proper sun protection, you can confidently bask in the sun's warmth while keeping your skin healthy and happy by the pool.


5. Grab Your Essentials for Poolside Pampering

Don't leave behind your favorite reading material—a captivating book or magazine can transport you to another world while you soak up the sun's rays. So, whether you're lounging solo or hosting a spa day with friends, remember to bring these poolside must-haves for a day of pure indulgence and relaxation right in your backyard.
