No need to go spend money at a spa! There are a few things you can to do in your bathroom that can turn any ordinary bathroom into a place for you to relax and unwind from the pressures of everyday living:
Light candles any kind and lots enough to light up the whole room. Choose your favorite scent and color.
While the bath is running, pour powdered milk under the running bath water to help soften your skin.
Have a little soft music, or any music you love listening to playing while you are in the bath.
Pour a few drop of your favorite perfume under the running tap water, adds a light fragrance to your bath water, then add a few drops of baby oil also.
While you are waiting for the water to rise, give yourself a little facial, wash your face with your favorite facial cleanser. TRY TO AVOID soap it is drying to the facial skin. Rinse with warm water, NOT HOT that is also drying, then take some baby powder...yes, baby powder and add a few drops of water and gently apply to face. Let sit for about 10-15 minutes on your face rinse with warm water, your face will feel so very soft.
You can also use ground up oatmeal, (old fashioned) put into a blender, for a facial. After its been ground up mix with a little almond oil or even a little vegetable oil. Cleanse face, then apply oatmeal mask let sit for a few minutes then gently rinse.
Put oatmeal in a clean stocking (like a knee hi) and tie it around your bathtub nozzle as the water is running into the tub. Then when you get into the tub use it to "exfoliate" the rest of your body.
I know I love to do this part, with the candles going and a little "quiet" music going I grab my latest book get into the tub and just escape for a little while.
The number one thing though is see if someone can take the kids for awhile, if that isn't possible and they are old enough to "listen" (hey you can try) bribe them with something.
I tell my boys if they leave mom alone long enough to "freshen" up I will make cookies and we can watch a movie they love, which is usually the one I've seen a million times BUT it gets me about 1/2 hr in the tub undisturbed!
