At Home Spa Tricks!

I was recently fumbling along on Glamour.com when I ran into some fabulous at home spa tips! I thought what a great way to relax with the hectic holiday season upon us when most of us are trying to watch the all mighty dollar as well!

No special tools are needed

Turn your shower into a sauna “Just turn your shower on and run it at its hottest temperature for about 20 minutes. While the water is running and the steam is building, take a warm washcloth and spray with your favorite relaxing oil. (Lavender, vanilla or rosemary are all great de-stressing aromas.) When you step into your shower, put the washcloth up to your face and take a deep breath of your soothing, oil-scented steam. It’s a great way to unwind right before bed—and it also helps clear up sinuses.”

Heat things up “Before jumping into the shower, stash your daily body lotion on top of a radiator or heating vent so it’s warmed up when you rub it on. There is nothing better than getting out of a hot shower and rubbing on the heated, soothing lotion. Just be aware that your lotion will get much more liquidy when it’s warm, so it might rush out of its container faster.”

Sugar Scrub “Once a week give your whole body a nourishing scrub. Mix one cup of granulated white sugar with enough vitamin E oil to make a thick paste. Head to the tub and scrub it in circular motions all over your body. This simple-to-use scrub helps rid your skin of dead cells while taking in the nourishment of the vitamin E oil. Simple and sweet!”

How about you, do you have any tips to give you that spa glow from home?
