DIY Summertime Spa Tips.

Itching for some spa time, but can't get to a spa? You can do it yourself and spa at home and all you will need are a few hours and the right products. Here are great DIY summertime spa goodies that make me feel like I spent the day at the spa.

DIY At Home Spa Tips

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm
This cleanser is actually from the luxe spa brand Elemis and I first fell in love with it when I had a facial at the Elemis spa. This unique cleanser feels luxe. It features a unique combo of oils & waxes that break down micro-particles of makeup and cleanse the skin without stripping it. And I have to say that it smells heavenly, blending mimosa & rose wax for an indulgent, spa-like experience. $60.00 at

L’Occitane Angelica Exfoliating Gel
I love the fresh scent of this exfoliating scrub. The all-natural exfoliating particles gently removes dead skin cells and impurities, while it massages my face as I rub it in. The angelica extracts keep skin feeling naturally hydrated and simply leaves me feeling incredibly clean, soft, and smooth.

Beauty Chic Facial Sauna
Have you ever tried to place a towel over your head and steam it over a sink? I have and it is nearly impossible to do it easily or safely. Luckily, Beauty Chic has developed an at-home Facial Sauna that gives me the deep pore cleansing results I crave. After just a few minutes of sitting safely in front of the steam, my pores are clear and skin is softer and more radiant. $24.99 at Ulta.

Thera Pearl Eye Therapy Mask
I leave this super soothing eye mask in my freezer and love to apply it cold for a soothing pick me up in summer. The therapeutic gel filled pearls stay cold and lasts up to 20 minutes as I place it over my eyes and relax.

Nuance Salma Hayek Green Tea Cooling Eye Gel
To keep eyes feeling cool and refreshed, I soothe this specially designed applicator around my eyes. It helps to continue to soother while it keeps puffiness at bay. Infused with Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Cactus Flower Extract, this treat is powerful enough to work, yet gentle enough to be used on the delicate eye area. $16.99 at CVS/pharmacy.

It's packed with antioxidants to correct and protect against daily environmental aggressors and free radical damage which are more prevalent in the summer. My skin tone instantly looks better and fine lines seem filled as they are gently plumped. $195.00 at Nordstrom.

Tocca Crema da Mano Luxe
No facial is complete without a little attention paid to the hands. Don't you love it when your hands get that little extra finishing touch at the end of a facial? I like this cream in Bianca, a green tea and lemon scent. Enriched with coconut oil, shea butter and aloe, this cream absorbs quick into my hands and leaves them softly scented and silky soft. $20.00 at Sephora.
