10 Beautiful Ways to Spend $10
From best-bet makeup products to totally affordable salon indulgences, these 10 little splurges will leave you feeling fine -- and flush -- in no time
Get a (partial) rubdownWith our hectic, chock-full schedules, who has the time (or money) for a full body massage? While escaping for a couple of hours into spa bliss may be unrealistic, a chair massage can be the next best thing -- especially if you're a sucker for having your tense muscles kneaded.
Whether you get it done at the mall, at a nail salon or even your local Whole Foods, a chair massage will typically find you seated in an ergonomically designed chair as the masseuse manipulates your neck, back and shoulder muscles (those that can be adversely affected by sitting at a desk all day) on top of your clothes for the going rate of a dollar a minute. Think a short rubdown won't make any difference? Think again. A study done by the Touch Research Institute in Miami revealed that regular 15-minute chair massages reduce stress, anxiety and depression! Oh, and they feel heavenly too. (And, if you saw that episode of "Modern Family" where Claire/Julie Bowen got hers, you know it's only too true.)
