Stay beautiful – From Spa to Jar by Lindsay Scott-Furtardo, Beauty Advisor & Aesthetician, A.S. Cooper & Sons, Ltd.
Ah, the Spa. A place of tranquility, amazing aromas and ultimate pampering. While Spa treatments are definitely worth the splurge, cashing in for some pampering once in a while can end up costing a pretty penny. Turn your bathroom into an at-home spa with these ‘treat yourself’ recommendations and save yourself a few $$$ in the process.
Soak it Up
There is nothing like a long soak in the bath to calm the mind and relax the muscles. The Jo Malone bath oils add a touch of pure indulgence to bath time. For a real spa-like feel try Amber and Lavender bath oil, light the Velvet Rose and Oud candle and turn the lights down low. The oil will condition and hydrate and the scent will last for hours on the skin.
For silky smooth feet try Bliss Softening socks. The self-activated gel lining is infused with Olive oil, Grape seed oil and Vitamin E to repair and soften rough, dry feet. Start with a generous application of the Bliss Foot Patrol cream with Salicylic acid to melt away dead skin cells, then slide in to the cozy socks and relax for 30 minutes – You’ll be walking on air.
Face to Face
No time for a facial? Got 8 minutes to spare? The La Mer Hydrating facial is a luxurious professional strength treatment mask that will instantly transform the skin. The cotton mask comforts and conditions while visibly reducing the signs of ageing and dehydration, leaving your skin with a renewed ‘just had a facial’ radiance. Who needs the spa??
Spa in a Jar
Clarins Tonic Body Polisher instantly makes me think of the spa as soon as I open the jar. Essential oils of Rosemary, Rosewood and Mint fill my bathroom with the most decadent aroma. This glow-getter uses salt and sugar crystals to buff away flakey skin cells and impurities to leave skin looking glowing and sleek.
