In a perfect world, you would have plenty of money and time to spend on spa services whenever your heart desires. In reality, you are a super busy mom with little ones to watch, work to do, a household to run and bills to pay. While you might treat yourself to a pedi with your BFF every few months, but you are not a regular at your local spa.
Fortunately, you don’t have to shell out time and money you don’t have to enjoy a spa-like experience. Here are a few ways you can do it from the comfort of your own home.
Invest in a luxury shower head
A great place to start with pampering home items is the master bathroom. Upgrade your shower head to one that delivers a soothing, spa-like flow of water. Online retailers offer a terrific selection of gorgeous shower heads that look like they came out of a resort. The Universal Showering Components 2.5 GPM Shower Head by Delta features a Brilliance Finish and an affordable price tag of $49.99; the flat and square-shaped shower head includes full body spray settings and SpotShield technology that will help the shower head to ward off hard water buildup. The Raindance C 180 Shower Head costs a cool $328.25, and provides a “gentle shower rain with air-enriched drops” along with an oversized spray face.
Whether you have two quick minutes for a fast shampoo or a bit more time to actually shave your legs (wow!), a new shower head will allow you to take care of yourself in luxurious style.
Relax with an essential oil diffuser
Many spas offer essential oils as part of their pampering packages. Thanks to a diffuser that you can keep on your nightstand, you can enjoy the same relaxing scents at home. Look for one that features a silent fan and is battery operated so you can enjoy it in any room of your house. There are a number of essential oils that help reduce stress, some of the most popular include lavender, lemon, and bergamot.
Get your pedi on with a foot spa
After a long day chasing after little ones, working and taking care of a home, your feet are probably dog tired. Invest in a foot spa that you can set up in your living room and settle in for some serious tootsie pampering while catching up on your fave shows on TV. The HoMedics Shower Bliss Foot Spa with Heat Boost Power that provides your piggies with stimulating shower massage jets, gentle bubbles, and soothing heat. Place some towels on the floor, fill the spa and set it up next to your fave chair in the living or family room and you will feel like you are at a spa in no time. The foot spa also features “heat boost power” that will heat up cold water and maintain the perfect temperature the entire time you are using it. To add to the experience, use one of the pedicure attachments like the pumice stone or massage roller and finish up the experience with polishing your toenails with a gorgeous color.
As a super busy and devoted mom, you deserve to be pampered as often as possible. By treating yourself to some specific items that are designed to help you relax and feel great, it is more than possible to enjoy a resort-like experience in your own home whenever you want.
