Spa Yourself


Feeling a little pasty and tired? Nothing that a day at the spa can’t cure. But if it’s looking like this winter’s trip to the spa is ‘so not happening this year’, (what with the economy and your family not being able to manage without you for a day or two), it’s time to take matters into your own hands and create a little at-home spa experience for yourself.

Don’t go buy a lot of expensive lotions and potions either—we’ve rounded up some homemade, all-natural treatments that will help you to exfoliate, rejuvenate and relax. You probably have the ingredients to make them in your kitchen already. So send the kiddos out for the afternoon with someone who loves them, turn off the phone, crank some mellow tunes, light an aromatherapy candle and treat yourself for a few hours.

Face Off
Get started with a relaxing two-part facial. Start with a lemony Tranquil Facial Steam. Lemon essential oil is a natural anti-bacterial and is calming, helping with mental fatigue, exhaustion and anxiety (also great for opening nasal passages if you have a cold). Follow the steam treatment (you’re oh, sooo relaxed now), with a Sensitive Skin Cucumber Mask, best served chilled from the fridge for maximum soothing potential.
