Valentine's Day Beauty Treats

The importance and impact of every Valentine's Day changes as your life does. You may be single this year, or have a new romance -- or maybe you're living with a valentine you've been with for decades! Whatever the case may be, beauty author and spa owner Susie Galvez says it's always fun to celebrate. Here are some ways to enjoy Valentine's Day this year, no matter where your heart is:

  • Pamper yourself. "Make your own aroma-therapeutic moisturizing soak by adding several drops of almond oil and your favorite essential oils to your bath.
  • Treat yourself to a beautiful bar of soap. "For $5 you can get soap made in France -- and you can really feel the difference!"
  • Make your own perfumed lotion. If you don't want to spend the money on high-end body creams, simply add your fragrance to a handful of your own unscented body cream before you apply it.
  • Make an appointment to get your legs waxed. "Nothing makes you feel sexier than silky, polished legs!"
  • Get your brows shaped. "Your eyes are the windows to your soul. It's the quickest way to give yourself a glamorous look!"
  • Give yourself a scalp treatment. Apply 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the roots of your hair and cover with a plastic bonnet for 15 minutes. "It's wonderful for your hair and scalp, and if you rub small amounts onto freshly shaven legs you'll glow!"
  • Use gold eye shadow. "Gold used to be for Academy Awards-type glamour but today it's for everyone. Even if you're having dinner out with your husband, a tiny amount on the center of your eyelid is super-alluring. Eyes are naturally attracted to light, and as you're blinking and talking he won't be able to take his eyes off yours."
