Affordable pampering you can do at home. Patty Mayer, lead esthetician from Spa Claremeont, shares these do-it-yourself spa treatments.

Facials: Use EGG WHITE weekly for exfoliating your face, neck & décolleté (upper chest area). How to: Use a soft fan brush to wipe the egg-white into a foamy consistency, brush the egg-white using upward strokes, starting with the forehead then down to chest. This treatment will not only exfoliate (dissolve dead skin), but tighten and brighten your beautiful face!

Body Treatment: Use CORNMEAL weekly for a gentle scrub all over your body - throw away the scrunches, hand towel and/or loofahs, they collect bacteria and don't compare to what Cornmeal does for the skin. Cornmeal is used in Spa Claremont's body treatments and is gentle for even the most sensitive skins. Cornmeal exfoliation is perfect before a spray tan, your tan will last longer and look better on healthy skin.

Pedicure/Foot Treatment: SEA SALT/EPSON SALT soak for tired, fatigued, itchy & burning feet. TEA SOAK for your feet (save all your tea bags! herbal, green, peppermint, etc.) Leave used tea bags soaking in warm-hot water and soak your feet and enjoy the AROMA-therapy at the same time. TEA has a anti-microbial effect on the feet, this treatment will help with athlete's feet, cracked heals, etc.
