DIY Spa Experience

DIY Spa

It’s that time of the year again, when both men and women go to the beach, cook outdoors and make time to break a sweat at the gym. For women it’s also a prime time for pampering and looking our best doing the things we enjoy, and who doesn’t want to wear sandals and flip-flops when they go outdoors? This means frequent trips to the salon and beauty spas, and too frequent visits can wear and tear on the bank in the long run. So what’s a better alternative? Having your own pedicure spa in your home is an inexpensive and fun way to get your feet taken care of. There are some amazing at-home spa products that can have the same effect as a trip to the spa.

Before we run down the different products here are a few things you can buy to add to the experience:

  • Foot files
  • Cuticle oil
  • Foot cream
  • Your favorite polish

If you’re familiar with spas then you’ll know that the first thing to do is to let your feet soak in warm water. Here’s where you can take advantage of the various tubs and basins that are on the market and which ones will provide the best experience for you.

Whether it’s a massage or a simple soak, these foot baths will help you feel relaxed and pampered.

Carepeutic Deluxe Motorized Foot and Leg Spa Bath Massager

This foot and leg spa is designed to knead out sore calves and feet, and the water temperature can be changed to suit your needs. Tickling air bubbles and easy mobility make this a nice addition to your home without too much clutter. Add bath salts while the jets are going to enhance your massage, and then easily drain out the water with this product’s built-in drain.

Hot Spa Ultimate Foot Bath #61360

A simple-to-use foot bath, the Hot Spa comes with it’s own water heat up and toe-touch controls, as well as water jets to sooth your feet. If your feeling especially sore this spa also has infrared heat for the soles and entire bottom of the foot to alleviate pain. It even comes with a set of pedicure accessories that you can take out or leave in, adding a massage feature.

Dr. Scholl’s Invigorating Pedicure Foot Spa

This is the all-in-one for a spa treatment! Not only does it have your standard features such as jet bubbles and heating, but it comes with it’s own pumice stone to remove calluses and soften the heels of your feet. The water stays warm provided you add warm water to the basin and also comes with a pedicure set, so the only thing you’ll need to really make this spa shine is some nail polish.

After you’ve spent some time soaking your feet don’t forget to remove your cuticles, exfoliate and massage your feet with some foot cream or your favorite body lotion. As a DIY this can be done with friends for a laid back and rewarding time you’d otherwise have to pay someone else for. What’s your favorite part of the spa experience?
