Pushing through the February Blahs ...

Ciao bella,

I'm just so tired of wearing a winter coat, socks, gloves, boots, etc! The heat and the elements drying out my skin, and the itchiness is quite annoying as well.

So I've decided it's a Spa at Home Day. I just purchased some wonderful extra moisturizing body wash and a pistachio scented body cream, also extra moisturizing. The pistachio scent is amazing! Lift your spirits with a great smelling product and lots of emollients.

Treat yourself to these 2 Spa at Home treatments:

Heavenly Facial Mask

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp yogurt
  • 1 tbsp honey

Apply at room temperature to face and neck, rinse after 15 minutes with warm water. Your skin should feel as soft as a baby's bottom!

Soothing Hands Mask
Warm in microwave for 10 seconds

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil

Soak your hands for 5 minutes. Rinse, and then apply an emollient rich hand cream. The honey and the coconut oil are anti-infl ammatories helping the skin's outer layer to heal and protect itself.

Get pampered! Start using those gift cards you received for Christmas and get a Winter soothing Pedicure. Many salons are doing specials this time of year. Look into it.

It will be Valentine's Day soon and the world will be full of hearts and love ... get into it and enjoy the colorful experience of red! Polish your nails red to brighten up your mood.

So my Glamazons ... keep on Glamping!

Buona Giornata and God Bless the USA!
