With all of the party themes and ideas out there, it can be difficult to choose which would be the perfect one for your celebration. A perfect idea for a girl’s party– especially one in the sometimes-awkward preteen years but really at any age– is a spa day ( girls spa parties). Girls Spa Parties are a fun alternative to other themes that may seem childish or over-done.
Throwing a glamorous day of pampering for a group of girls is not only exciting, but it can be pulled together quickly and easily, often with things you already have around the house.
Girls Spa Parties – Deep Moisturizing Facial
Start your party with a facial that will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth and smelling wonderful. Wash your face first and then apply this facial in a gentle but firm circular motion, relax for a few minutes (now is a great time to do the hand soak!) then rinse thoroughly. If the scrub remains on the skin, wash with a very gentle cleanser. This facial scrub can also be used as an all-over body scrub for a delicious glow.
- Olive oil (known both for its moisturizing and antibacterial properties, olive oil has been used for beauty treatments for thousands of years)
- Honey (helps skin hold onto moisture and also acts as an antibacterial)
- Granulated sugar (a natural, gentle but effective exfoliant)
- Vanilla (for the wonderful smell…optional)
- Blend all ingredients into a thick paste
Girls Spa Parties – Hand Srub and Soak
Beautiful hands are important to girls of any age. This hand scrub and soak will soften even the driest skin.
- Petroleum jelly (created for deep moisture that is held maintained by the skin)
- Gentle liquid hand wash
- Olive oil
- Begin by covering hands thoroughly with petroleum jelly and letting sit for at least 30 seconds
- Blend the next three ingredients into a paste and scrub into the hands for at least 30 seconds, allowing the sugar to exfoliate your skin
- Use the liquid hand wash to remove all of scrub and dry your hands
- Warm the olive oil to a comfortable temperature and soak your hands for three minutes
- Wash again, dry and apply a light lotion
Even though they aren’t seen very often, having well cared-for feet does wonders in making a girl feel pretty all over. At your girls spa party this pedicure will relax you and make your feet ready for strappy sandals–or flip flops.
- Warm water
- Epsom salts (known for their relaxing properties)
- Eucalyptus essential oil (the blend of these oils is very calming)
- Spearmint essential oil
- A pumice stone (a lightweight, porous stone used for exfoliating the skin)
- The sweet scrub used for facials
- Gentle body wash
- Petroleum jelly
- Thick white cotton socks (colored socks will stain the feet)
- Soak the feet in warm water with salts and essential oils for 10-15 minutes
- Scrub feet with the pumice stone, concentrating on the heels and anywhere where your feet have become rough
- Use the scrub and then wash thoroughly with body wash
- Dry thoroughly and apply a thick layer of petroleum jelly
- Put on the socks and allow the warmth to soften the skin
Girls Spa Party – Glamorous Make-Over
Even the youngest of girls can enjoy a little touch of glamour with a pampering make-over. Provide a selection of make up products appropriate for the girls’ age group and let them experiment, or act as their personal make up artist and give each a pretty look to finish up the spa day.
- Very young girls can use tinted lip balm and shimmer powder
- Slightly older girls can add glitter and lip gloss
- Home party-style make up distributors love doing make-over parties and can provide plenty of samples in various types of make up for teenage and adults enjoying a spa day.
A girls spa party is a relaxing, rewarding way to celebrate any special occasion, or just add a touch of glamour to a sleep over.
