Bring the Spa Home Before the Holiday Rush


The holiday season can be incredibly hectic, so why not take a moment to pamper yourself before it gets really crazy!

Start with a total body exfoliation by making your own body scrub at home with ingredients you likely already have in your kitchen.

Take some Shea Moisture® (Link opens in new window.) lotion and mix it with brown sugar & coffee for a refreshing scrub that will naturally firm & tighten your skin. You can also try mixing the lotion with honey, sea salt & some rose oil to leave skin smelling wonderful with an amazing glow! Open a few tea bags to add to your scrub or bath water. The possibilities are endless! There are also lotions like Dove Body Love Cream Oils (Link opens in new window.) which are designed to give your skin softer, smoother, healthier-looking skin with every application. Or Vaseline‘s Intensive Care line (Link opens in new window.) which will help rejuvenate dull, dry skin and provide a radiant glow.

Don’t have a bath? Following your exfoliating shower, prepare a warm foot soak with epsom salt and a few drops of your favorite essential oil (we recommend lavender) if you wish. Keeping your feet healthy and soft during boot season is a must!

While your feet are soaking, use an exfoliating facial cleanser like Simple® Kind to Skin Exfoliating Face Wipes (Link opens in new window.) and gently massage it into your skin. Let it sit for a few minutes so it can really work its magic!

Take some time for you! Maybe go get a massage while you’re at it! There is nothing more important than self-care, especially during the holiday season. We often spread ourselves thin around the holidays.

Have a safe & happy holiday season with your friends and family!
