When it comes to pampering yourself, let’s face it, it can be hard to fit in time to freshen up and relax. Going to the spa can be quite expensive and it’s hard to carve out a chunk of time in your busy schedule. We get it. Even though we all deserve some time to relax, we know it’s next to impossible most days.
That’s why we’re here to teach you how to give yourself a spa day with just some creativity and a few ingredients you already have in your home. There are many ways to do a DIY Spa Day and many reasons to not spend big bucks at a fancy spa.

My skin had a rough winter here in the freezing cold Chicago winter. Due to the dry heat indoors, my skin could use some TLC.
