Create a Home Spa Experience Without Spending a Dime

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Here are some home spa tips that will make you look and feel like a million bucks. Squeeze a few more minutes into your daily routine for them, and become happier and fantastically refreshed!

Slow down. Take in the experience of an everyday activity that you usually fly through, such as a bath or shower, listening to a favorite song, or even getting dressed in a favorite outfit. Remember why each thing is special to you.
Use an essential oil compress to refresh and energize.
Shower with a gentle, scented gel and a body scrubber. There are many kinds of scrubbers - choose one that exfolites and stimulates your circulation without making you feel like you've just been rubbed by a cheese grater.
Soak in a bath. Add 5 to 10 drops of an essential oil to bath salts.
Be nice to yourself. These are your precious rejuvenating moments. Take your time.
Be gentle when washing your body or face. Scrubbing too hard or too vigorously can advance signs of aging in the skin.
Pamper your hair, which takes a beating both indoors and outdoors , all day long. Use a hot oil or deep conditioning treatment and spend the wait time reading a book in the tub!
Replenish lost moisture to your skin and hair by taking two tablespoons of organic flaxseed oil twice a day. You'll get rid of dry skin and combat wrinkles..
Treat your fabulous face like royalty. The skin on your face is thinner and more fragile than the rest of your body. Avoid extremely hot water, harsh soaps or any drying cleansers. Wash with gentle cleansers that don't dry out your skin, and always rub gently as you wash. Moisturize.
Tone and plump the skin on your face by putting an ice cube into a plastic bag, and rubbing it gently all over your face for a couple of minutes.
Rejuvenate from the inside as well.
Drink enough water so that you do not feel thirsty, particularly when you are hot or are exercising. (Any 'registered' dietitian will tell you that it is an urban myth that you *must* consume 8 to 10 glasses of water a day if you do not need it.)
Eat lots of whole foods, green vegetables, fresh fruits, grains, nuts and lean protein to reduce inflammation, replenish moisture and bring back a youthful glow.
Take 3 full, deep breaths from your abdomen (keep your shoulders still) to complete your simple happy essential home spa experience.
12. Make yourself a foot bath with a plastic bucket or any plastic bin that fits your feet comfortably with the water just above your ankles. Add two tablespoons of epson salts to the water. The water should be hot but, not too hot. Use from the tap and check as you fill with the back of your hand.
Sit in a comfortable chair with a magazine you have been meaning to read.
Find some New Age music "Ray Lynch is a good" I like the Album "Deep Breakfast" Relax and enjoy the moment. Headphones can shut out any outside noises and help create "your own space".
Pleasant scents from incense or candles can add to the relaxing effect.
The most important part is to slow down and enjoy the time. Evenings before bed are best as the relaxation carries over to your sleep time.

The benefits and joy you experience during your at home spa day will be more colored by your desire and your intentions than any fancy, expensive products you can buy. Be mindful, set your intentions and gradually transition in to or out of your work day.
