The last time I had a spa day, I walked out spending $250. Crazy, right?!?
I'm all for relaxing pampering sessions, but this girl has bills to pay, and $250 spa days aren't in the budget. So what did I do instead? I brought the spa to my house – and at a fraction of the price.
Recently I tried dry brushing for the first time, and it was life-changing. I don't know how I went my whole life without it. I'm not kidding when I say it melted my soul. I am the girl who begs her husband nightly for back scratches, and wiggles when he stops – hoping he'll get the hint that I don't want him to quit.
If you're in need of a spa day but are a budget gal like me, you'll want to snag up the gems below. Taking five minutes (more like fifteen because you have to shower) out of your day to do something that recharges your soul is well worth it. All you need is the three items below: A dry brush, lotion, and cozy robe to snuggle in to… and because you are so awesome, Primally Pure is give you 10% off your first order when you use CODE COURAGE10 at the checkout.

Ready to start pampering yourself?
- Before showering, grab your dry brush and begin at your feet. Brush upwards with gentle, short strokes – always towards your heart. Brush in a counterclockwise direction over your belly (this helps to improve digestion!) and then brush from your hands to your heart. To finish, brush down toward your underarms to help flush out toxins and improve lymph drainage. Always use light pressure – the point isn’t to scrub off your skin, but to gently, effectively get blood and lymphatic fluid moving.
- Once you've finished soaking up the goodness of dry brushing, jump in the shower and scrub-a-dub-dub. Be sure to take a moment to soak up the warm water as it relaxes your muscles.
- After showering, apply your lotion (I'm obsessed with the one linked above) and toss on your bathrobe. What you do from here is up to you, but I'm known to flop on my bed and mentally check out for a few – or twenty – minutes.
