They're not only breathtaking to behold, but offer signature spa treatments steeped in either ancient methodologies, new wave thinkings or a combo of both -- all guaranteed to cure what ails you, and feel (mostly) heavenly in the process.   Do them

Homemade Facial Mask Recipe

Stress is an inevitable part of the busy, fast-paced world we live in. It weighs on us and shows in our faces. Unfortunately, not all of us have the funds for a fancy facial or a store-bought facial mask to help alleviate the visual signs of stress. Lucky for you though, we dug up a homemade facial mask recipe from Daisy Tang, founder of Aspara Aromatics, and it's not just any ol' home facial mask, but a papaya facial mask (yup, we've gone tropical on you). Papaya has enzymes in it similar to alpha hydroxy acid, which helps minimize wrinkles, and in turn will make you look less stressed. To boot, while you apply this facial mask, you can close your eyes and pretend you're on an island somewhere far, far away from life's craziness.   See recipe

9 Unnecessary Skin Care Products

We live in the infomercial era. As vulnerable consumers, we are lead to believe that something is wrong with us if we don't resemble a celebrity or supermodel, but that there is something we can buy to fix whatever is "wrong" with us. And worldwide, there are probably over 10,000 skin care companies trying to convince us that we need a different cream for each body part -- from our pinky toes to our upper lip. But hey, we're not saying these skin care products are total hogwash and that you should stop using them stat, we're just saying that less really is more, and if you want to keep it simple, you can by ditching superfluous products and just using a few key items.   See products

Busy Gal's Guide to Skin Care

Ok, first it needs to be stated that we do not endorse, support, or approve of purposeful skin care neglect. We do however understand, sympathize for, and commiserate with the woman who has too much on her metaphorical plate. Squeezing in facials and obsessing over a strict anti-aging routine takes serious amounts of "me"-time. Who's got that? Truth is, many of us don't.   See tips
