Introduction

"I think my skin is turning blue."

"What?!" says your friend.

"My skin is taking on the color of my computer screen," you say. "And if I have to deal with another rush hour commute, I'll definitely turn blue in the face."

"You need a break," says your friend. "You are overworked and underpampered."

Stress builds up in our lives, manifesting itself in many ways. Is your skin breaking out? Do you have a hard time falling asleep? These problems could be stress related. Studies have shown that stress weakens the immune system, leaving the whole body more susceptible to illness. Healthy, balanced living begins with giving the right kind of attention to your body and mind. While most of us know this to be true, the fact is buried somewhere beneath the schedules and pressures of our daily lives. We are consumed with our jobs, engulfed by our commitments, and attacked daily by sun, wind, and environmental pollution—our hectic routines clog both our spirits and our pores.

Now you can take matters into your own hands. Home Spa is your secret weapon against the drudgery of routine and the pressures of environment, offering a variety of ways for you to relax and to look and feel better. You can treat yourself to many of the benefits of a day spa without leaving your home—and without the expense or time commitment of professional treatments. Using natural, readily available ingredients that you may already have in your refrigerator or cupboard, Home Spa provides easy recipes and techniques to revitalize yourself—from softening skin and relaxing tired muscles to removing toxins and improving circulation. Manufactured beauty products contain manyingredients you don't need, such as alcohol, chemicals, and artificial colorings, which often contribute more to dryness, itching, and rashes than to the care of your skin. Making your own spa products is not only more fun and less expensive than buying manufactured products, it puts you in control of what you put on your body.

While nothing can take the place of a weekend spa retreat or a holiday in the Caribbean, we'll show you inexpensive, easy ways to re-create professional spa techniques and a soothing environment in your own home. Whether you have half an hour or two days, Home Spa gives you the recipes and techniques to step out of your hectic routine and experience a renewed sense of calm and improved physical well-being.

Here are ways for you to pamper yourself from head to toe whenever you need it most—regardless of time or money. Taking the time to indulge yourself will ease life's pressures, clear your mind, and leave you feeling fresher and more capable of handling whatever comes your way.

It's time you put yourself at the top of your list of "things to take care of."
