It seems like we're always trying new things to help our skin feel better or our bodies feel more relaxed. Whether we treat ourselves to the spa or some type of laser procedure there are so many options we have to make ourselves feel younger and healthier. I'm going to give a few recommendations of some things I've done to make myself feel 10 years younger.

  • Facial

    Who doesn't like a good facial right? Anytime you get a chance to treat yourself to the spa, sign up for any kind of facial. You could get a skin renewing facial where it helps to reduce fine lines or get one with an anti-aging treatment or they even have ones to help reduce redness. The most recent one I had was an ocean illuminating one where it renewed dull skin giving me a youthful looking complexion. There is nothing better than your face feeling smooth and looking healthy again. It's almost as if you look in the mirror and automatically feel 10 years younger.

  • Microdermabrasion

    I've only done this once at a laser center but I have friends who go in every six months for a microdermabrasion treatment. Basically a laser removes all the brown spots on your skin and can also make lines go away as well. My skin was so smooth and clear after I had the procedure. All of my brown spots were gone, but unfortunately I made the mistake of going back into the sun a few weeks later and they came back, so keep wearing sunscreen! I'm thinking about doing another one in the fall. If you haven't had one it's worth trying it. Your face will feel sunburned afterward for a few hours and the spots get really dark before they flake off and disappear. It may sound weird but you'll love the way your face will look and feel smooth after you get it done.

  • Seaweed Body Wrap

    Let's say you're thinking about a body wrap and you're not sure what to get when you treat yourself to the spa. I would recommend a seaweed body wrap because it replenishes your skin and will help to prevent future skin damage. It's also supposed to get rid of the bad toxins in your body as well. I did one several years ago and they put a seaweed mud mask all over you and wrap you up while you let it soak in for an hour. I felt great afterward and had a ton of energy. There are so many different body wraps but this is worth trying. This will definitely make you feel 10 years younger.

  • Hot Stone Massage

    Any time I'm feeling stressed, sore or in need of some relaxation, I try to treat myself to a massage. Any kind will do but some good ones are therapeutic, relaxation, deep tissue and my favorite is the hot stone massage. The massage is used with heated lava stones which helps to relieve any muscle pain while releasing energy. It's very relaxing and you feel so good when it's done. An hour is never enough time but you always feel better and relaxed.

  • Fotofacial

    I have friends who have gone to a laser center to get a fotofacial and they say it really works. I'm actually curious to try this sometime so maybe I will one of these days. The light therapy Is supposed to improve the texture of your skin making it appear young and smooth again. A friend of mine says she does the fotofacial because she wants to reduce lines around her eyes and mouth and she claims she always looks and feels 10 years younger. All it takes is 30 minutes and it's pain free. Forget about buying all those products and creams because this will save you time and money.
