TREAT YOUR­SELF TO A SPA

THERE’S NO NEED TO HEAD OUT – RECREATE EX­PE­RI­ENCE AT HOME

Warwick Daily News - - WEEKEND - WORDS: TRACEY HORDERN

For most of us, vis­it­ing and lux­u­ri­at­ing at a spa is one of life’s great­est plea­sures, but it is not al­ways ac­ces­si­ble or af­ford­able. With a lit­tle plan­ning and imag­i­na­tion, you can recreate the essence and am­bi­ence of the spa ex­pe­ri­ence from the con­ve­nience of your own home.

Most of us lead busy lives, so the first thing to com­mit to is some time, prefer­ably an evening, or any time when you can en­joy some pri­vacy. Once you have se­cured some per­sonal time, set the tone with an or­dered and clean space, some re­lax­ing mu­sic and, of course, a fra­grant can­dle. And if you are lucky enough to have a bath, now is the time to truly rel­ish it.

Next, think about what treat­ments you would like and rus­tle up, pre­pare or pur­chase your prod­ucts. Qual­ity, cer­ti­fied-or­ganic spa ranges can now be eas­ily pur­chased in stores or or­dered on­line. High-tech beauty ap­pli­ances for man­i­cures and pedi­cures are also read­ily avail­able, as are bat­tery-op­er­ated beauty brushes.

Once your face and body are be­ing treated, wrap your hair in con­di­tion­ing mask and ei­ther a shower cap or a towel.

Af­ter your face, body and hair have been thor­oughly cleansed and re­ju­ve­nated, fin­ish by with a man­i­cure and pedi­cure. Af­ter this, sit back and re­lax with a herbal tea in the com­fort of your spa-friendly home.
