The winter months have started taking their toll. The cold temps, gusts of wind, and lack of sunshine, which provides a natural source of Vitamin D, wreak havoc on our skin.
Treat yourself to a luxurious at home spa day to revitalize and rejuvenate from the inside out.
Here are 7 essential tips for a luxurious spa day—at home!
A nutritious start
The best at home spa day starts in a healthy nutritious way. Enjoy this easy Breakfast Smoothie with Optimal Solutions® Complete Protein and Vitamin Vanilla Shake Mix. (It’s comes in chocolate flavor too!)
Take a freshly cut lemon and rub gently on rough elbows and knees. The acid in the lemon will soften rough spots on skin and also lighten any dark areas.
Tired Eye remedy
Use cucumber slices for puffy, irritated eyes. Place the slices on your eyelids, lay back and relax for 15-20 minutes. This classic remedy works because cucumbers contain ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and caffeic acid, both of which help reduce swelling.
Draw a hot bath and add drops of essential oils for relaxation. Try lavender, chamomile, jasmine, bergamot, or sandalwood. Soak in the tub for ½ hour taking deep breaths of the relaxing oils.
DIY sugar scrubs are super easy to make. Mix ½ cup of sugar with enough oil--try olive, coconut, or castor--to make a paste. Add your favorite essential oil and slather over your body. Rinse off in a hot shower and delight in the aromatic smell and in your smooth skin!
The winter months can be brutal on the skin. The key to super-soft and well-moisturized skin is Optimal Solutions® Organic Coconut Oil. Lather over the entire body and luxuriate in the deliciousness of this amazing product.
