At-Home Spa Day
Disclosure, I was given these products in exchange for writing a review but all opinions are my own.
I love going to the spa but unfortunately, it’s not always bank friendly. For my first edition of an at-home spa day, I wanted to focus on legs and feet. I have put together a list of mini spa treatments that are easy to do at home and some products that are great to use. With warmer weather around the corner, it’s never too soon to work on getting those legs shorts and sandals ready.
Winter can be hard on your soles. Always wearing socks and the cold weather leads to cracked skin. The warm weather has already started and I can wait to break out my sandals and flip-flops. I was sent the Emjoi Micro-Pedi to try out. The battery operated tool removes the dry and rough skin from the soles of feet. It’s like getting a pedicure at your home. My feet felt so much better after using it and incredibly smooth.
Now that your feet are sandal ready, let's focus on legs. I was sent the Emjoi Epi Slim+ e18 to try. I have never used an electric shaver and was actually a little nervous about using it. Rather than shaving any hair off, the epilator actually is made up of tweezers that pull the hair follicle out. After some recommendations, I took a hot shower and exfoliated my legs before using it. It’s not as painless as shaving is but definitely a little easier than waxing. I will say the more you use it, it gets easier and your skin gets used to it. I recommend the product for use before going on vacations or during warmer weather months, since it will save you time shaving. Most people found that after using the Emjoi Epi Slim they felt like they didn’t have to shave their legs for a few weeks. If you have ever considered other methods then shaving, I would definitely consider the Epi Slim.
After smoothing out the skin on my feet and legs, I tend to find that they are on the dryer side. Each night I layer on lotion an hour before going to bed, so my legs are fully dry by the time I am going to sleep. The Gloves in a Bottle got rid of my winter hands. While Skin MD Natural Shielding lotion really helped the skin on my legs and feet. After a week of consistent use, my skin felt incredibly silky and smooth.
If you love doing spa treatments at home, just as much as me, feel free to comment below with your favorite treatments you do. I hope everyone makes the time to enjoy, relax and chill out at the end of a stressful day.
