The commercials were brilliant…Tired, stressed, and overworked women who just needed a moment for themselves.
Calgon’s tagline - Lose yourself in luxury. I mean, who wouldn’t say “YES!” to that?
As a 50+ and fabulous woman, you take on life with fortitude and determination.
Whether you are managing a family or caring for a loved one… juggling a career… planning for your next adventure… living in the throes of a gorgeous “retired” life -- you just keep going.
Why? Because you are WOMAN… hear you roar!
But even a strong woman deserves a moment to herself. Time to relax and rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit.
In these days of constantly moving forward, serving others, and planning for what's next -- the practice of self-care is one of the most important things you can do, for YOU.
Self-care routines provide you with insights into how to be your best self and contribute significantly to Positive Aging.
One of the best ways to promote self-care is by pampering yourself with spa treatments.

● Release stress!
● Flush toxins from your system!
● Hydrate and rejuvenate skin!
● Loosen tight joints and muscles!
● Increase energy and resilience!
● Improve your mood!
● And so much more!
And you don’t have to go to a spa to enjoy the soothing sensations -- You can DIYfrom the comfort of your own home.
To get the most out of your at-home spa experience, be sure you choose treatments that speak to your heart… are something you’ll enjoy… and are easy for you to do.
Be adventurous and try different options to find what really works for you!
If you are new to the at-home spa experience or you want to take your current routine from ordinary to extraordinary, we have some DIY spa ideas for you!
Gentle Body Scrub
A body scrub is a popular way to exfoliate your whole body to remove dead cells to expose healthier skin that can better absorb lotions and creams. Massaging your skin with a body scrub is a great way to relax and rejuvenate!
It’s not recommended you use a body scrub more than 2-3 times a week, depending on your skin type. For best results, consult your dermatologist.
A simple DIY body scrub can be made with equal parts brown sugar and oil - such as olive, almond, grape seed, or coconut. For an added boost, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
Follow up with a moisturizing lotion or try Vibriance Age Defying Body Serum. This full-body skincare serum targets crepey, thin, rough, dry, sagging, and wrinkled skin.
Invigorating Foot Mask
Foot masks are designed to gently exfoliate your skin while allowing ingredients like shea or cocoa butter and plant oils to lock in moisture, deep beneath the top layers of skin.
If you are time-crunched, this mask begins to work in less than 10 minutes and can be used anytime your feet feel dry or crusty.
To make the mask, mix together equal parts of fine cornmeal, unrefined shea butter, rolled oats, and Epsom salts. For added pleasure, mix in your favorite essential oil.
Massage the mixture onto your feet… Let it sit for a few minutes... And, then rinse off.
Moisturizing Hand Treatment
Nothing is more painful than rough, cracked hands in the winter. Similar to the foot mask, the moisturizing hand treatment removes the dry skin while it locks in moisture deep beneath the surface.
You can use this treatment as often as needed to keep your hands soft and healthy. Mix together 1 tablespoon each of olive oil and sugar, and 1 teaspoon of almond or grapeseed oil.
Massage the mixture into your hands using a circular motion. Be sure to work it across your knuckles and around your fingers where rough, cracked skin tends to form. Rinse off after a few minutes.
Follow up with lotion or try Vibriance Moisturizing Cream. This cream is made with nutrient-rich superfoods that quickly absorb into your skin… providing a thin moisture barrier all day.
Facials offer so many benefits from stress release... to improved blood circulation... skin detoxification and rejuvenation… feeling refreshed and vibrant.
There are many DIY recipes you can try depending on your skin type or desired effect. Here is a simple treatment that soothes and calms your skin- combine 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, 1 ripe avocado, and 2drops of lavender oil.
Apply a thin layer to your face. Sit and relax for about 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
For your on-the-go days, try Vibriance Moisturizing Cleanser. A gentle cleanser for removing dirt, makeup, and pollutants while leaving skin feeling healthy and renewed.
Soothing Spa Bath
Anice soothing spa bath offers so many benefits from activating blood circulation… to calming aches and pains… relieving stress and anxiety… to settling your spirit before bedtime.
For a simple and delightful spa bath, combine 1 cup of Epsom salt, 1 cup of sea salt, and ½ cup baking soda. Pour the mixture into the bottom of your tub along with a few splashes of your favorite fragrant essential oil. Fill the tub with warm water.
Carefully step into your oasis and set it all free!
Once you are relaxed, towel dry and moisturize with a body cream or try Vibriance Dream Sleep Body Cream. This full-body cream is formulated to promote calmness and relaxation.
Here are 5 things you want to do before your pampering-palooza begins:
1. Plan ahead. Whether you are doing a 15 - 20 minute daily routine or a half-day spa, choose your treatments and make a list of supplies. Be sure to block the time on your schedule. A well-planned event cannot be easily unraveled!
2. Remove all distractions. Your at-home spa experience can take as long or as little time as you need to feel rejuvenated. Send the family to a movie… turn off your phone… hang a “do not disturb” sign on the door. This is a special time set aside just for you!
3. Prepare your area. Whether it’s in your bathroom or a cozy sitting room, you want to create an environment that is relaxing, calming, and comfortable. This is your spa oasis and your space for relaxation. Leave nothing out!
4. Set the tone. Soothing music… dim lighting… aromatherapy candles. Create an ambiance that pulls you into the moment!
5. Gather your supplies. Make sure you have everything you need at your fingertips. Prepare DIY treatments ahead of time so they are ready when you are. Set the stage so all your supplies are easily accessible!
