Ask The Makeup Diva
Welcome to Ask The Makeup Diva™! Our resident expert, The Makeup Diva, answers makeup and skin care questions sent in by readers just like you.

Q: I'd love to go to a spa, but they're too expensive. Do you have any ideas on how to turn my bathroom into a spa using commonly found items that aren't too expensive?

A: There is a multitude of ways to transform bathtime into a sensual spa experience. I suggest you visit the site If you search under "bath and body" and "looking your best," type in "whirlpool" under "search." Homedics offers a jet sauna which temporarily attaches to your tub and performs like a whirlpool at the unbeatable price of $25. If you prefer, Sunbeam has a shower massage for approximately the same cost.

Amera products ( has some tempting, effective products: they offer Satin Finish grapefruit-scented cleansing lotion which sloughs off dead skin cells and renews your body for $10; Sea Bath oils in "Purity" ($6) soften and relax; mineral salts and Sea Bath salts in Serenity, which permeate your skin with magnesium and other elements found in the ocean and natural spas and springs, leave you relaxed and your skin like velvet.

To continue the luxurious spa atmosphere, dim the lights, burn candles (safely!) in your bathroom in a lavender scent (an aroma proven to relax) and place a vinyl, inflatable pillow behind your head. And don't forget to take the phone off the hook and play your favorite mellow music, whether it be R&B, alternative, or classical. You'll emerge a new woman!
