Looking for the perfect excuse to have a get together with the girls? Look no further! Why not try hosting a home based spa day. It’s a great occasion for you to invite your girlfriends round and have a good catch up whilst pampering yourselves at the same time. What could be better?!
There are lots of different treatments that you can perform at home. Here are a few ideas for creating the perfect girlie day.
Make a stand against the miserable UK weather we’ve been having recently by brightening up your fingernails. There are some great new products on the market at the moment and it’s always fun to experiment! The recent phenomenon of magnetic effect nail polish creates a really unique look and is simple to apply. After a file, condition and a quick buff, it’s time to get painting! Another great one to opt for is the limited edition Pinkie Pink polish which has been launched in support of the campaign against breast cancer. Supporting a worthy charity through pretty nails is a win win situation.
Sit back and relax while you enjoy a soothing face mask. Although if you may want to opt for a light, gel mask rather than a mud pack as these can make it particularly difficult to talk to one another without “cracking”! A great product to add to your facial is the anti-wrinkle collagen eye mask which is recommended for all skin types, perfect for a group spa event. And you can keep your skin in tip top condition with a luxury face cream like crème de la mere to protect against the winter weather!
This is an ultimate pampering treat. Take it in turns to try out your massage skills using different lotions and potions. You can hire a massage table from most local suppliers and you can also find couch rolls online to protect your furniture, so no need to worry about any oil spillages! With regard to different oils, try tea tree for its cleansing properties and rosehip oil for its skin softening properties. You could even treat it as a mini competition and give a bottle of wine as prize for the best masseuse!
After your beautifying and pampering, go all out and each give yourselves a makeover. Again this is a great opportunity to experiment so be daring and step out of your comfort zone! If you usually stick to the same colour eye shadows or lipsticks, try something a little out of the ordinary. How about some attachable eyelashes or a glitter effect lipstick? Try accessorising your favourite dress with a matching eye colour. There are some beautiful metallic options available online.
