A Decadent Gift

spa1A few years ago, my husband surprised me with a wonderful birthday present: a full day at a wonderful, luxurious spa! I was so happy to have a day of relaxation all to myself. I got a facial, full body massage, manicure, pedicure and paraffin wax treatments on my hands and feet. A day at the spa makes a great gift for your favorite lady’s birthday, Christmas or Mother’s Day.

If you can’t splurge for a day at the spa, spa gift baskets are great, less expensive alternatives. You can give all the luxury and decadence of a spa visit with premium lip balm, soap, lotion, shower gel, body spray and more. You can even put together a personalized basket by specifying the person’s favorite colors and scents. Every woman needs to take a little time out for herself once in a while. As an added gift, take the kids out for a day and let her have some alone time to get herself home spa treatments with products from her spa gift basket.

We are getting ready to go to the beach and I am gathering all the necessary stuff.  One of the main things to remember when spending the day in the sun is lip balm.  Lip balm not only tastes good but it provides sun screen and moisturizing.  Moisturizing is very important for your lips anytime of the year.

So on your next trip to the beach don’t forget your towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, flip flops, and lip balm.  Happy Summer!

Time-Saving Technique

shower-gelIn large families, children often vie for precious morning shower time. The competition can be fierce; no one wants to be last and risk a cold blast from a merciless showerhead. Some schedules won’t budge, either. Kids need to be clean and presentable for school, so how can parents settle the bickering once and for all? 

Save hot water by encouraging quick, efficient showers. Try to reduce wasted time by simplifying the process. Shower gel can be used in lieu of shampoo and body soap. The time-saving benefits of this switch will become clear the very next day. Parents are then free to tackle their next problem – how to handle a calm, peaceful house in the morning.

Restore Your Skin’s Potential

Dry skin interferes with daily life in many overt ways. For example, no one likes to watch another person scratching their unsightly patches of dry skin. Scratching might relieve the irritation briefly, but it’s a short-lived solution at best. By stowing a bottle of skin lotion in a desk drawer at work, you can keep your skin healthy and comfortable all day long.

Shea butter’s natural moisturizing properties make it a sensible solution for dry skin. In fact, shea butter lotion does more than just resolve the cosmetic signs of skin irritation. A healthy dollop of lotion works to lessen the impact of eczema, acne scarring, and even burns. Dry skin is a common problem, and sufferers swear by shea butter to provide the relief they need.
