…on all things wise and wonderful.
When it comes to selecting cleansing products for our bodies, we generally tend to hold an anything goes attitude. We aren’t very fussy about the soap we use and most of us don’t even feel the need to purchase a loofah. However, if you do want to enjoy, not just soft, but healthy skin too, it makes sense to choose good quality, nourishing products. Here are 3 products that are normally used in spas that you can purchase to give your skin an extra dose of conditioning.

Spas offer a range of relaxing treatments that are designed to soothe your body and calm your mind. Massages are a treatment that most of us tend to find intensely calming and rejuvenating. This is partly because of the pressure applied at pain points and partly because of the exotic oils used in the process. The massage relaxes our muscles and the fragrance of the aromatic oils soothes our senses. Hence, if you want to enjoy a spa-like massage experience at home, buy yourself some aromatic massaging oils. Enriched with natural ingredients, these oils will not only appeal to your senses, but also leave your skin feeling softer, smoother and more toned.
Although we bathe every day, very rarely do we get the time to scrub our whole body properly. We usually do a quick, top job and get done with our daily bathing routines. So, it makes sense to invest sufficient time in cleansing ourselves properly at least once a week. Reserve these elaborate bathing routines for weekends when you can enjoy a long and leisurely bath without having to worry about being late for work or an outing. Use a refining scrub to thoroughly cleanse your pores and soften your skin. Salt body scrubs are a great bathing product to have around the house as they exfoliate, smoothen and moisturize skin.
After you’ve finished washing your body, you must apply a moisturizing cream or lotion to replenish the moisture lost while bathing. Body purees are extremely hydrating and condition and soften skin. So, after your luxurious weekend bath, coat your whole body with a nourishing body puree or body balm. The body shop offers enriching body purees made of exotic ingredients like coconut, firangipani and lotus flower. Also, while applying lotion or cream remember to moisturize every part of your body, especially areas like your elbows, knees, heels and toes.
With these 3 spa products in your home, you can enjoy the benefits of visiting a spa without actually having to go to one. Don’t let the price of these products dissuade you from buying them as the benefits that you will enjoy from using these products are going to be priceless and manifold.
