There’s no need to spend a pretty penny at the spa when you can get professional-like results at home. Follow these steps from Tina Juden, manager of LUSH Spa in New York City, to turn your next DIY facial into an affordable indulgence.
Step 1: Relax
Sure, there are meals to be prepared, clothes to be washed and emails to be checked, but block out an hour for some quality time with yourself—and your skin. After all, you deserve it. Slip into a comfy robe and slippers and, while you’re at it, turn off your smartphone. “Shutting down all screens helps you disconnect and really relax—without scrolling through social media for your next 'like,' " Juden says.
