Feeling like you’ve booked a weekend at a luxurious spa resort doesn’t have to cost a fortune, nor does it require an appointment. You can create that magically refreshed feeling at home with a few simple pantry staples and a quick visit to your local drug store.
Here are some ideas for pampering yourself without breaking your budget.
For smooth, radiant skin that feels nourished and refreshed, give yourself a gentle scrub. Make a paste of 2 cups ground coffee, 1/2 cup raw sugar and 3 tablespoons olive oil. Rub in a gentle circular motion to exfoliate skin and remove dead skin cells. Rinse clean with warm water.
Follow your scrub with a rich cleansing gel to rejuvenate and add moisture to your skin. Capture the illusion of a spa getaway with tropical-scented cleansers such as Softsoap Coconut Island Quench Body Wash, which is enriched with coconut oil extract to leave skin feeling soft and supple, or Softsoap Acai Berry and Tropical Water Body Wash, infused with antioxidant-rich acai berry extract and moisturizing beads to invigorate both body and mind.
