I stumbled upon an article in Woman’s World magazine that I love and wanted to share it with you. It has a lot of tips for at home Spa Treatments you can give yourself to beat stress, not to mention make you feel pampered too. The first secret: Get a youthful glow!

Did you know that Pumpkin and Pineapple could do that? Neither did I until I read this article and starting giving myself spa treatments at home. Most of them take less than 20 minutes and always make me feel super refreshed afterward.

Want to get a youthful glow?

Why you will love it: The warmth from the dishcloth relaxes all the muscles in your face. “The pumpkin and pineapple enzymes improve the clarity and texture of your skin,” says Krasofski. “After you splash off the mask, your skin will look smoother and feel softer!”

1. Blend 2 Tbs. canned pumpkin puree and 1 Tbs. crushed pineapple, then place in a small bowl.

2. Place a warm washcloth over a clean face, then relax for 5-10 minutes.

3. Remove the washcloth and gently massage the treatment onto your neck and face. Relax for 10 minutes.
