DIY At-Home Spa in Half an Hour

Get ready for spring (or just pretend it's not freezing out there) with these quick and easy at-home spa ideas.


1. Prepare for warm-weather wear by scrubbing away dry skin. Drugstore exfoliators to use in the shower are quick — and inexpensive.
Time: 2 minutes
Luxe Option: Visit a local spa for a body scrub. This treatment often includes a massage, and many spas offer free perks like a steam room or hot tub.

2. Keep your newly scrubbed skin smooth by getting moisture everywhere you can. Add a few drops of bath oil when filling the tub and then soak it in.
Bonus: A bath oil can have aromatherapy benefits; depending on the scent you use, it can be relaxing or energizing.
Time: 10 minutes.

3. We tend to hit the hairdryer a little harder in winter, which makes our locks dull and brittle. Revive tresses with a moisturizing hair mask that you can use in the shower or bath. You don’t need to leave it on too long to reap amazing benefits.
Time: 5-10 minutes
Luxe Option: Many salons offer hair treatments.
Bonus: A relaxing scalp massage. Add one to your next haircut.

4. Rejuvenate a dull complexion with a quick, three-step mini-facial. Cleanse your face, exfoliate, and then apply a mask geared to your skin type. A clay-based formula is great for oily skin, while dry skin types should look for a hydrating version.
Time: 10 minutes.
