At Home Spa Treatments For Less

Do you spend thousands of dollars at a spa salon? Well, now you can have an in home spa for less. Spa yourself at home with facials, hands and feet scrubs, and body scrubs.

To start with a facial, you can use cucumbers for that natural treatment. Place a slice of cucumber over each eye for about 10 minutes. If you have puffy eyes, you can place a cold cloth or ice cubes over your eyes to help reduce the puffiness. Or you can use nourishing eye pads. The pads are cool to reduce the puffiness, soothe away irritation, refresh, and revitalize the eye area in just a few minutes. You can also place the pads in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

For an in-home facial, you can use a face masque. There are many masques you can find at a department store, but one of the best masques that I have tried is a self-heating masque. The self-heating masque warms up as you smooth it over your face. You can feel the warmth of the masque instantly, which tells you that the active ingredients are working. Some masques are botanically-enriched with ingredients like vitamins C, D, and also green tea. This type of masque is great for cleansing the skin of dirt, oil, and residue. After you rinse your face, smooth on a face moisturizer for added softness.

While nourishing your tired eyes, you can pamper your body by soaking in a bath full of therapeutic minerals. The minerals will leave your skin feeling soft and silky smooth. Fill your tub with warm water and indulge yourself for about 1/2 an hour or longer. Let you body soak so the minerals can absorb into your skin. You can also use a body scrub to exfoliate the first layer of dead skin. After a relaxing bath, smooth on some moisturizing mineral lotion. The lotion helps relieve tension and restores the moisture that was lost.

If you have very dry skin and need extra moisturizing treatment, you want to use an organic enzyme body masque. This is a moisturizing treatment for those targeted areas that are very dry. Smooth on the dry area and allow the masque to dry for at least five to ten minutes. Once dry, rinse off thoroughly. This treatment is great for dry hands and feet. For added softness, you can smooth on the moisturizing mineral lotion.

Products can range from $10 to up to $50, but it is surely less expensive than a trip to the spa salon. One facial can cost over $60 an hour, not including tip. You know you are getting a good deal when you can give yourself a home spa treatment over and over. These do-it-yourself target=_new home spa treatments will leave you feeling refreshed, clean, and silky smooth.
