We all love that relaxed and rejuvenated feeling you get after a day at the spa, but we don’t like the hefty price tag that comes along with it. So skip the expensive spa treatments and pamper yourself in the comfort of your own home — at a fraction of the cost. Here are five budget-friendly beauty products that’ll give you that fresh-from-the-spa look and feel.
1. Deep Facial Cleanse
A clean face is the first step to a perfect complexion, and now it’s easy to get a deep facial-like cleanse at home. Start your spa day by removing makeup and dirt (which can clog pores and lead to breakouts) with Olay Pro-X Microdermabrasion Plus Advanced Cleansing System. This system is designed to cleanse hard to remove makeup.
2. Allover Moisture
Take time in the shower to pamper your skin with a moisturizing body wash, like Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash. Don’t just stop there. After your relaxing shower or bath, lock in the moisture by using a moisturizing lotion for smooth, supple and healthy looking skin. Pay special attention to your feet, heels, elbows and knees for an extra touch of self-care.
3. Eye Treatment
It may be small, but the area around your eyes needs just as much attention and care as the rest of your face (or perhaps more). The eye area is not only one of the most delicate spots, but it also shows signs of fatigue and aging through puffiness and fine lines. A great eye serum or cream, like Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex, helps restore the eye area, giving you a more youthful look.
4. Hair Removal
There is no need to go through the pain of waxing if you’re looking for smooth and silky legs. Some razors, like the Venus & Olay Razor, come with five and lotion bars to lock moisture into your skin. There is no need for shaving cream, so it’s a great space- and money-saver.
5. Skin Protection
Finish your spa experience with the proper skin protection. Maintain your healthy skin everyday by wearing a moisturizing SPF lotion. Try to find a lotion that works double duty by not only protecting your skin but also by hydrating it to fight the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles — like Pro-X Age Repair Lotion with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30.
With a little extra TLC, your daily routine can feel like a trip to the spa — for a much better price and in the comfort of your own home!
