Question of the day - Do I really need a facial?

Facials are mini vacations - relax and pamper yourselfI hear this all the time: "Do I really need a facial? What a waste of money!" Or my favorite, "that is for girls only!" Since when do you guys not want to look good - even if you're going for a more "rugged" look?

Well, here is my take - Do you want to look younger, feel calmer and more relaxed? Are you concerned about your health and well being? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then facials are for you.

I look at facials as a way to take a "mini" vacation every month and to have someone focus on you for an hour. Because of the products that are used and the massage that is done, facials really help to exfoliate the dead skin cells away, to move lymph to remove toxins and to get the blood moving. All these things work with the body to create a more refreshed look and spirit. And your skin will look healthier, fresher and radiant.

I don't know about you but I'm in!

Pamper Yourself - A Shower Scrub for Radiant Skin

Pamper Yourself at homeSea salt and cucumber make this once-a-week treatment a must for revealing radiant skin. Your skin is more likely to look dull and ashy if there's a buildup of dry, dead cells on the surface. To speed cell turnover and get great-looking skin this summer, you'll need to exfoliate regularly.

"Once a week should do it," says Angelina Umansky, owner of Spa Radiance in San Francisco, who pampers her clients with this all-natural body scrub. The salt and the buttermilk's lactic acid exfoliate, and the cucumber cools. It's especially good before applying a self-tanner to get even color.

You need:

  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and grated (use a cheese grater)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sea salt or kosher salt (I love our Dead Sea Salts to make a scrub, they are very hydrating.)

Directions: In a small bowl, mix the cucumber and buttermilk. Add the salt and blend into a thick paste. Then relax in a warm shower for 5 minutes, allowing the heat to open your pores. Apply the scrub, paying special attention to dry areas like elbows and knees, then rinse. (Use this scrub before shaving, because the salt can irritate freshly shaved skin.)
