Planning an at Home Spa Day

5 Mar

shutterstock_158316041The other day we were featured on the TODAY SHOW on a segment about planning an at home spa day.  It got me thinking what a great idea that is … especially in winter where we are all feeling a little “blah” and could use a pick me up.  I love taking a Sunday afternoon for a little “me” time where I do some DIY beauty treatments at home.  It helps if you do a little planning ahead of time.

When planning your at home spa day, why not start off with a personalized spa wrap or waffle weave robe?  I know they always make me feel like I am in “spa mode” when I have them on. Ours were featured on the TODAY SHOW for the spa segment.

I love to get ideas from Pinterest for my spa treatments.  For some great facial ideas, I love the ideas on this DIY Facial Treatment site.  My favorite pick-me-up facial from the site is a great way to revive your skin:

Ingredients:

  • 4 tbsp coffee grounds (not instant)
  • 1/4 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

(You can substitute the yogurt with whole milk, and substitute the olive oil with honey or lemon juice.)

Directions:

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. The result should be a pasty consistency.
  2. Apply to face gently, with a circular motion.
  3. Cover your entire face, excluding the lips and let sit for 20 minutes.
  4. Rinse with warm water and pat face dry.
