Summer is always a busy time of year. With all the hustle and bustle, it's easy to forget to take a second and relax! While you might not be able to take that Caribbean island vacation this year, you probably can spare an afternoon for some good old fashioned self-care. Our favorite way to relax and give back to ourselves is an at-home spa! Here's everything you need for a calm, rejuvenating afternoon:
Pamper with a natural face mask
Regardless if you have dry, oily or combination skin, there's a natural face mask for you! Face masks are a wonderful way to address any concerns you may have with your skin. After 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the mask, you'll be amazed at how much better your face feels. Be sure to take a look in the mirror and check out your beautiful glow! If you don't already have a favorite brand for face masks, or are looking to try something new, try a DIY one. There are a lot of DIY recipes on Pinterest and blogs online! (Don't forget to share your favorite with us on Facebook.)
Deep condition with coconut oil
You may have heard about coconut oil in just about every beauty magazine and article. We recommend it as a deep conditioner for your hair. If you let it sit and work its magic for a while, your hair will be smoother, stronger and shinier than before. Plus, it will smell great!
Rest your eyes
One of the best things about going to a spa is the ambience. Everything about the experience is relaxing. Well, you can recreate that ambience at home! If you have a dimmer switch, use it. Candles are great for ambience as well. Just remember to be safe around the open flame! The dim lights will also help your eyes rest. For the true spa environment, find some soothing music, whatever helps you relax, and play it throughout your spa day.
Don't forget to end your at-home spa day with smooth, healthy skin. Using a moisturizer like Corium 21 cream will keep your skin happy even on non-spa days! Collagen, just one of Corium 21's special ingredients, can help make your skin firmer and more supple - so say goodbye to fine lines!
