You've had a looong challenging work week and the only thing you want to do is sit back , relax and be pampered by "the angels". The only problem it's just a few weeks before pay day and the cash flow is not 100 % so you can't go in to an actual spa to get pampered. What do you do? DIY the heck out of it! Keep reading for how you can set up your very own "Spa Day at Home".
Set the Mood: For this you will need relaxing music and decor to set the mood. For the music, you can go to your trusted friend YouTube and search for Ocean Sounds , Hawaiian or whatever you find to be calming and relaxing. You can also use candles , diffusers , frankincense and so on.
Set the Bar ... Facial Bar that is: One of the main things people go to the Spa for is a professional facial. This will give you the chance to set one up yourself. Fill bowls with exfoliators , astringents , Moisturizers and all the skincare products you will need. You can the the commercial route ( what you purchase in stores ) or you can go the natural way. For this you can use things like oats , brown sugar , honey , plain yogurt. Also on deck should be essential oils : Grape seed oil , Peppermint , Lavender and Rosemary. Here is a mask you can try :
- ½ cup of oatmeal, 2 tablespoons of honey, and ¼ of plain yogurt mix into paste. Smooth on and leave for 15 minutes. This is great for exfoliating and soothing the skin.
Pedicure Treatments: If you have one of those fancy Pedicure machine thingie .. good for you! You can use that ... If you don't , all you need is a bowl with hot water and Epsom Salt. Epsom salt is great as a foot soak and for tired feet. To top this off , have another station with Nail Polish , Nail Polish Remover , Cotton Swabs and other Nail Accessories to give yourself a professional polish.
If you want to make this fun and interesting , you can invite a few of your friends and make it a Girls ( or Guys ) Weekend! Let each person be responsible for something specific.
Live Life , Have Fun and make do with that you have , until you can get what you truly want.
