Spa

By Stephanie Ila Silver-Silberstein

The Fourth of July epitomizes the summer. From barbecues to fireworks to campfires to swimming in the pool or at the beach, Independence Day inspires happiness and a carefree feeling. And if you think about it, that’s exactly what the spa does too.

Vivabox

With organic body lotions, shower gels and bath salts by EO, the Spa Vivabox contains everything you need to unwind at home after a busy holiday weekend. And if that weren’t enough, this brilliant idea of a ‘spa in a box’ takes things one step further by including a gift card for a manicure and pedicure (tip included) at one of more than 4,000 spas. For a great host/hostess gift, combine the spa Vivabox with the BBQ Vivabox and you’ll be everyone’s favorite 4th of July party guest! http://www.vivaboxusa.com

Neero & Ana Satin Pillowcase

Get in the spirit of Independence Day by adorning your bed with red, white and blue! The Satin Hydration Therapy™ skin & hair care botanical satin pillowcases by Neero & Ana will lock in moisture, maintain the glow and make the effects of your luxurious spa treatments last forever (or at least until the next appointment). These organic sleepers start with plant cellulose/wood pulp fibers and weaves an almost magical satin that’s anti-absorbent, durable and powerfully hydrating. With these pillowcases, (available in 15 colors), you’ll end the holiday festivities with a blissful night’s sleep and begin the next day looking absolutely fabulous. http://www.neero-ana.com

Happiology Sugar Scrubs by Ilumme

BBQs are great but they can be messy, messy, messy! To get back that feeling of beauty and femininity, indulge with the appropriately named Happiology sugar scrubs from Illume. This fun but also effective spa collection is infused with positive energy and the very best natural and organic ingredients available. Try the Sunshower scrub for the refreshing scent of white lilies and bergamot (and adorable red and white jar) or the bamboo and agave scrub for a blue and white jar of energizing goodness. http://www.illumecandles.com

Dazzle Dry Nail color

Show your patriotism from head to toe with red, white and blue Dazzle Dry nail lacquers. These fast-drying nail polish colors along with the Dazzle Dry base and topcoat unite to form the Dazzle Dry Quick Dry Nail System. Don’t let your manicure cut into your valuable summertime fun. These nail polishes not only cut your drying time by more than half but they stand up to even the most intense beach volleyball game. And the wide array of shades available will get you through an entire year of holiday fun. http://www.dazzledry.com

Seed Power Body Care

This Independence Day, honor this great country by supporting companies like Seed Power Body Care, whose products and packaging are made right here in the United States. By enriching each product with grape seed oil, this 100% natural product line will leave you feeling silky rather than greasy. Because their seeds are rich in Vitamin E, a powerful skin care rejuvenator, the Seed body lotions, exfoliates, body bars and shampoo bars all provide multiple forms of antioxidants and essential fatty acids which are beneficial when creating a healthy lifestyle. http://www.seedpowerbodycare.com

Have a very happy and fun-filled 4th of July! Just remember to take some time to relax and luxuriate in your favorite at-home spa products.
