Treat yourself: Pamper winter blues away from head to toe
You survived the hustle and bustle of the holidays. So after all the buying, wrapping, cooking, baking, decorating and un-decorating — in addition to your usual daily to-do list — why not take a break to pamper yourself. Here are a few products, available at guilt-free prices, to help you do just that.
Earth Therapeutics Moisture Gel Booties
Slipping on these cool gel-lined terry cloth socks feels amazing, but their cushy-goodness will make you say “ahhh” with every comforting step. Gel lining features aloe vera, jojoba oil, vitamin E and olive oil to moisturize your feet, while the nonskid surface helps increase traction.
Waterford cotton, bamboo and silk blend bath towel
$12, Tuesday Morning
Like a cuddly cloud of warmth, the bamboo yarn helps absorb moisture much better than cotton alone while the silk fibers comfort your skin.
True Blue Spa Shea Cashmere & Silk Hand Cream
$6, Bath & Body Works
Lightly fragranced with almond blossom, vanilla and creamy sandalwood, this ultra-moisturizing but non-greasy hand cream will make your hands silky smooth and as soft as your favorite cashmere sweater.
Revitalizing Shower and Bath Gel
If winter weather leaves you feeling chapped, soak your body in this eucalyptus and mint silky foaming gel that combines skin-soothing plant extracts of elderflower and chamomile with aloe vera and cucumber. And you can select your own natural essential oils to create your own scent and lift your spirits.
HoMedics Vibration Massage Bath Cushion
For those not fortunate enough to have a spa bathtub at home, this cushion, which features an adjustable plush headrest and invigorating massagers, will turn any ordinary tub into a bubbling oasis of relaxation.
