This page is dedicated to the busy woman who
juggles professional and personal life so efficiently but seems to
frequently forget to include herself in her timetable. Women superheroes
look gorgeous on TV, magazines and comics. So can YOU -you're the daily
superhero who comes unnoticed and most of the time, disregarded! It's
time to come out.
Give yourself the rewards fit for royal ladies, princesses and queens- PAMPER yourself!
keep your wallets and step out of those walking shoes. You are not
going anywhere. Stay glued right in front of your screens for a few
minutes and you'll soon be on your way to that awaited luxury.
up is one of the most vital chores every woman accomplishes. Most of
the time, she is the one who sees to the cleanliness of the home.
Cleanliness protects the family from germs and eventually, sickness. She
knows it and so, cleanliness has to start on herself.
typical for a woman to stay so long inside the bathroom. Many say it is
her domain. Yes! And the other place where you see her reign is The
Kitchen. These parts of the house are the certified zones for women. The
kitchen and the bathroom are the areas you could get on with the treats
and transformation processes.
When night finally comes, clear
everybody out of your domains and start on with the program. Just make
sure that the dishes are all done, the house is clean and the kids are
all tucked up. You wouldn't want someone banging on the bathroom door
after a few minutes.
It would be marvelous to wake up the next
day already looking gorgeous without going to the hairdresser. Starting
from the crowning glory - the hair, give it a boost, a life! A homemade
shampoo of egg, hot water and an ounce of fresh rosemary would do the
first trick. Rinse. Then follow up with deep conditioner of mayonnaise
and avocado. Rinse. Then, finally, give your hair the energy it needs
with olive oil and vitamin E liquid combined in boiling water. Cover
with a hot towel and leave on for 30 minutes.
A hot bath would be
one of the best ways to soothe the knots from the shoulders to the
feet. Create a relaxing atmosphere by lighting little candles or lamps
with your favorite aromatherapy oils. For more calming and relaxing
bath, you could add milk and lemon juice to the water to achieve silky
smooth skin right after. Or, you could give your skin the vitamins it
needs without actually taking tablets or syrups orally. Instead of
swallowing the vitamin E capsules, just poke them with a pin and squeeze
out the oil to the tub along with regular sea salt and drops of your
favorite essence oils for an invigorating soak. Once inside the tub, you
might imagine that you are in an expensive spa instead of just in your
However, if you don't have that much time for a
dip, you could always have an alternative. Have some invigorating body
scrub in the shower. Exfoliate your skin with a combination of finely
ground oatmeal and almond oil. Let the pour of water massage your body
at the same time cleanse it.
Free your face of worry wrinkles.
You wouldn't want to look older than your age, do you? Combine vodka,
fennel seeds and honey (let sit for 3 days) and apply as toner with a
cotton ball to do the trick. A mask made of mashed ripe banana and honey
will give your face a new, vibrant feel. When going somewhere, you
might want to highlight your eyes and cheeks for more stunning effect
without really going through extensive alterations. You can bring out
the natural beauty of your eyes and cheeks by putting the perfect shade
of foundation, eye shadow, blush on and lipstick properly. The trick
here is to know your skin type and skin color and to determine the
colors that would compliment the shape and type of the face. And at the
end of each day (or night) do not forget to remove make-up. One secret
is to mix castor oil, light olive oil and canola oil. Then with a cotton
ball, apply tenderly over the eyes to remove make up. Keep the shine
off your face too, by using lemon juice mixed with cold-water toner.
When a trace of pimple is showing on your face, prevent it by placing an
ice cube wrapped in saran over the threatening pimple. Retain the
freshness in your face.
Your feet deserve the total rest they
badly need after carrying you anywhere you want to go. Give them a rest
for a few moments by propping them on a chair. Then prepare a great
footbath something you'd find in a posh spa. Treat them to a deodorizing
bath with Epsom salts, white vinegar and warm water. Then exfoliate
them with a mixture of strawberries, olive oil, kosher salt and finely
chopped almonds. For smooth and soft feet overnight, smear on a mixture
of banana, honey, lemon juice and natural margarine. Wear thick socks to
bed and rinse the next day. Follow with a foot deodorizing powder made
from baking powder and drops of your favorite essential oils. Your feet
will love you.
And after doing everything, your hands need the
last attention. Make sure that you have done the last of your chores so
that your hands could get the treat they deserve. A hot oil hand
treatment could leave your hands feeling soft and gentle. Heat olive oil
in a dish and soak fingers to soften cuticles and strengthen nails.
Combine cold cream, honey and slivered almonds to make a scrub then
leave on for 10 minutes. Wrap hands in hot hand towels tightly for 10
minutes. Remove the rinse and apply leftover olive oil. Wrap hand again
in towel or inexpensive cotton hand gloves. Then put plastic over gloves
and seal with rubber bands and let stay for 10 minutes. You'll feel the
moisture as it creates a terrarium effect.
After the program,
you'd feel relaxed and almost lulled to sleep. Indulge! And tomorrow, do
not be surprised to feel new and energized. Then check yourself out,
feel your skin, your hands and your feet - still amazingly smooth and
soft, right? It's not so difficult going through all your daily routines
when you're especially in good mood - inspired! Did your family notice?
The flattery is quite addictive, right? You could say it's
magic. You didn't have to go out of the house to feel great! You didn't
even spend anything because, the oatmeal was just on the top cabinet,
and the herbs just at the corner table. The hubby wouldn't probably
notice that you took a little of his vodka from the bar.
best thing there is, you wake up feeling so good, you'd still be
delighted enough to make a mouth-watering but un-sinfully delicious
dessert! Again, indulge!
And while driving the kids to school or
sitting on your desk at your office, have some easy and simple
exercises that could trim and shape you up! No need to call on that
gorgeous health instructor with enviously sexy body. Have it yourself -
