We've heard it so many times from all walks of life; Americans are over worked, over stressed and much deserving of a refreshing break. And we all know that one of the best and most popular ways to relieve stress and tension is a visit to the local day spa or better yet a week-long stay at a luxury spa resort. But, unfortunately, all of that rest and relaxation takes time and money. So, what can you do to unwind if you find that you are lacking in both of these precious commodities?
The answer might be as easy as creating your own own spa experience at home with inexpensive products purchased from your local or online spa supply. With products like facial masks, foot massagers and exfoliating body creams at your disposal, you will have no need to shell out money for a masseuse or cover to travel expenses. All you will have to do get all of the pampering and luxury that you need is delve into your private spa supply collection.
While you will not need a lot of products to make your home spa experience as luxurious as its more expensive counterparts, there are a few products that every home spa supply should include. Here is a brief look at just a few of the products that you will want to have on hand:
* Massaging foot bath – When you come home from a long day's work it looks like everything is aching, especially your feet. So, why not come home to your very own foot spa? Many of these spas come with heat and massage features and can do wonders for aching joints and weary feet. And the best part is that you can purchase one of these babies for as little as $ 25.
* Paraffin wax system – These home systems are also very inexpensive and are great for people with arthritis. The warm wax relieves aches and inflammation in the hands and feet and leaves skin supple, smooth and soft. Also great for people with dry, cracked or chapped skin. The system costs around $ 40.
* Facial sauna – With a home facial sauna you can steam away the impurities of your skin just like the pros do. Combine this product with your favorite cleansers, toners and moisturizers to create the perfect salon experience at home. You can purchase one of these for about $ 45.
* Hot oil manicure set – This is the ultimate luxury and will leave your hands and nails feeling and looking great. The soothing heated oil will help repair damaged dry nail cuticles and will also help condition and strengthen your nails. These are hard to find, but can be purchased for around $ 30 at most beauty supply stores.
In addition to all of these great spa supply ideas, you may want to consider inexpensive massage oils and creams. Aromatherapy bath gels and lotions also do wonders for a tired and worn body.
You see, it only takes a little bit of money to have the spa experience of your life. And the best part about having your very own spa supply at home is that there's no commute and the spa is always open for business.
