Here are some quick and easy at-home summer spa tips for mom to bring the spa experience to you!

Pedicure

Finding time to get to the spa can be a challenging task. With summer around the corner you’re going to want to take your feet out of hibernation and treat them to a pedicure. An at-home pedicure is a great alternative. All you’ll need is: a bucket of warm water, nail clipper, nail file, nail buffer, foot file, exfoliator, moisturizer and a fabulous nail color of your choice.  We recommend Gehwol Mint Foot Balm which will leave your feet soft, cool and mint fresh

Skincare

During pregnancy you probably were used to a natural glow and supple skin. It’s important to take care of it post pregnancy. Some tips include: avoid using products with harsh chemicals, use light makeup, remove your makeup  morning and night and exfoliate your face twice a week.  Exfoliating will remove dead skin cells and it is a quick and easy way to brighten the complexion and tone of the skin.

  1. For easy at home facials you can use items you most likely already. One would be to soften an avocado and add 1 tsp of lemon juice until it becomes a paste and apply directly to your face.  Leave the avocado mask on your face for at least 15 minutes or until the mixture fully dries. The longer you wear the facial mask, the more chance your skin has to absorb the mixture’s nourishing nutrients. Remove with warm towel. Once you have more time you can get back into a routine of receiving professional facials however an at home regimen is key to maintaining that summer glow .
  2. It’s important to stay hydrated during the summer months. If you are dehydrated, your skin will likely reflect this internal dehydration. Drinking plenty of water each day will act as a natural moisturizer. Add some slices of citrus to your water such as lemon, lime, or grapefruit to create a burst of vitamin C!  eforea:spa offers a wide range of infused water to ensure all our guests stay well hydrated
  3. Everyone loves a good massage especially new moms. Benefits of a post pregnancy massage include: release of muscle tension, increased blood circulation, and joint mobility.  Get an at home massage while holding your little one. Place a tennis ball between tender area (works wonders on the shoulder blades) and the wall.  Gently roll the tennis ball in circles or move up and down rolling the ball along the spine.  Feel the tension melt away.
