Get Soft & Sexy All Over!

Right about now, you're coming off a long season of dry, dull and pasty skin. Well, prepare to look gorgeous again because we have a slew of spa-inspired moves that will leave you smooth and glowing from head to toe.
GLOWING FACE SCRUB
It takes two buffing techniques - physical & chemical to look noticeably luminous. The beads or granules in a scrub rough up the dead skin cells and the chemical component dissolves them leaving you glowing like a shining star. Try Rilastil Daily Care Scrub Mask, $49 , twice to 3 times a week. And ladies don't just slap the luxurious product on your face- gently massage it into your skin for a full minute..you're look timeless asap!
$ 49
Revitalizing Face & Eye Massage
Most spa facials involve some kind of face massage to boost blood flow, and help the products absorb better. Here's how to get results on your own:
- Take a warm shower to soften your pores, then cut a chilled seed-less red or green grape in half (grapes contain hydrating glucose and powerful antioxidants that fight skin-damaging free radicals)
- Slide the flat side of the cut grape over your skin, starting between your brows and moving out toward your temples. Sweep up to your forehead, then down your nose and over your cheeks.

Follow up your grape massage with Perricone MD Hydrating Nutrient Mask, $65 - it tightens the appearance of pores and evens out your tone.

ENERGIZING CHERRY BLING PEDICURE
To get rid of the icky callused skin you've been hiding under your socks & boots all season - submerge your feet in a bowl of QTICA Smart Spa's CHERRY BLING Soak diluted with equal parts of warm water (the luxurious CHERRY BLING soak loosened up dead skin like no other!) After 5 minutes, slough your heels and the balls of your feet with a pumice stone, then massage your entire foot with CHERRY BLING uber hydrating Sugar Scrub. Rinse it off & slather on the insanely rich CHERRY BLING Luxury Lotion (which can be used on your entire body) for gleaming feet!

EASY (AT HOME) SELF TAN
Before you even pick up a bottle of bronzer, thoroughly exfoliate your entire body. Here's something new you should do next:
- Use a sunless tanner that is one shade lighter than the hue you want to be at the end of the treatment (Our fave: MYSTIC TAN Body/Face Kit, $54 )
- Apply the lighter hue tanner twice - once in the morning and again at night, it will blend in any streaks so kiss those zebra strips good bye ladies.
To make things more manageable think of your body in section; start with your legs and work from the front to the back.

For the most natural looking results, go with a body lotion spiked with sunless tanner...
