Anti-Valentine’s Day Beauty Treats For A Home Spa Day
It’s Valentine’s Day, or as some of us single ladies like to call it, Thursday. Restaurants and movie theatres will be saturated with lovey-dovey couples and over-priced menus tonight, and while we’re happy that Valentine’s Day falls on a week day this year and doesn’t get in the way of a perfectly good weekend of dancing and brunching with our friends, we still want something fun to do with our post-work evening. Enter the Real Style Anti-Valentine’s Day Home Spa Evening. It’s not every day that we take the time to fully pamper ourselves with beauty treatments like intensive masks and manicure sets, but tonight we’re all about it. Here’s how the non-committed girls at Real Style will celebrate our Facebook single status, as well as all the products we’ll be using for a night that’s all about us.
GlamGlow Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask ($69)
The price tag of this mask might seem a little steep, but it’s flying off shelves at Sephora for a reason — this mask is ah-mazing! This 10-minute mask helps remove impurities from your skin without stripping it of natural oils, so you can kiss blackheads goodbye without drying out your skin. It also tightens pores and, when you wash it off, your skin is so refreshed and exfoliated, you will feel baby soft.
Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salt Soaking Solution (approximately $5)
There are a million different bath oils and bubble baths on the market, but nothing beats a good soak in epsom salt to really detoxify your skin all over. Let the magnesium sulfate draw the stress and and the toxins right out of your body, all the while making your muscles feel more relaxed?
Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask ($67)
You only have to leave Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask in your hair for 5 to 7 minutes for its argan oil and protein content to take effect. If you’ve been dying your hair frequently, styling it with flat irons or just over-washing it, this mask will help give your hair back its softness.
Kiss Gel Polish Starter Kit (approximately $49.99)
Since you’ve got the whole night ahead of you, we suggest giving yourself the Valentine’s Day present: Kiss Gel Polish Starter Kit. The kit comes with everything you need to master the art of gel nails, which leaves your manicure looking perfect for up to 2 weeks.
LUSH Volcano Foot Mask ($13.95 – $22.95)
This kaolin and pumice volcano foot mask also contains fresh papaya and lemon juices to help get your hard-working feet clean, as well as tomatoes, potatoes and anti-fungal essential oils to deodorize. Slather it on and put your feet up for 10 minutes while watching an episode of The Mindy Project (best new single girl show EVER) and then wash off and let the pumice exfoliate your tootsies.
