In a couple days I am set to head to a pretty formal event where I will have to wear a snug fitting dress and look my best for pictures. Yup! I’m going to be a bridesmaid for the first time ever in a friend’s wedding. I’m quite excited.
On top of the many things I would like to do but don’t have time to squeeze in at this last minute is a spa day. I love getting spa treatments at day spas so I needed to figure a way to get it in anyway. Also, I have been going hard at the gym to look decent in the dress and have been researching do-it-yourself at home sports spa treatments online.
I combined a few items I had read and used my own intuition and came up with a regimen for a detoxifying, exfoliating spa treatment that also had a sports medicine healing portion to it. It came out pretty well.
Here is what it entailed:
First, I sprinkled a generous amount of (2) AHAVA Dead Sea Mineral Bath Salt in a tub of running hot water, then added a few drops of (3) Mia Roma 100% pure Essential Oil in Eucalyptus and a few drops of the same brand of oils but in (4) Lavender.
I followed up dropped about 4 to 5 (4) Sea Kelp tablets in the water and let it all dissolve. This is great for breaking up fat
I soaked in that for about 30 minutes, then rinsed it off.
I then used a (1) exfoliating pad and applied some Dead sea minerals scrub all over the body, and focused on my legs, thighs and back using H2O Spa’s leg and muscle rub.
Then after rubbing that in really good to exfoliate some dead skin, I showered that off.
I finished up by spraying some Ancient Meinerals Ultra Pure Magnesium oil all over my body. This oil is
I left that on for about 20 minutes while checking my social media accounts in the bathroom and rinsed it off and pat dried myself off.
I felt polished, super clean, refreshed and rejuvenated.
Afterwards, I applied some (6) Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Night Cream moisturizer to the body and super thick (7) Burt’s Bees foot cream on my feet and covered them up with a pair of thin sports socks! They will come out super soft by morning.
It all was just what I needed and I felt as if I had been in an expensive spa when I was done! But unlike the spa, I had plenty of products left over so I could repeat it all again next week or whenever I needed another jolt of detoxification and exfoliation.
Highly recommend it for all ladies— and gents out there!
