Get Red Carpet Ready at the Spa Just Like Your Favorite Celebrities

Tuesday, 22 February 2011

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Awards season can be an exciting and fearful time for many celebrities. With the thrill of recognition comes the terror of being scrutinized from every angle. While many of us will never be subjected to such critical analysis we still want to look red carpet ready. Spa products and treatments are the perfect way to prep for an event, family portrait or fun night out. It's easy to get your hands onto the same spa products celebs use since skin care products are sold in 97 percent of all spas according to the ISPA 2010 U.S. Spa Industry Study. And, they won't break the bank since spa products on average retail for $43.

"A spa professional can analyze your skin, recommend products to fit your needs and have you looking your best in no time," said International SPA Association President Lynne McNees. "With 20,600 spas in the U.S. alone it's easy to find a spa that's perfect for you."

With the help of these ISPA members you'll look like you're on your way to the Academy Awards (whether you really are or not).

You'll feel the tingle as the natural ingredient of cinnamon plumps up your pout. The $64 Lime Stimulating Masque will revitalize your complexion while improving blemish prone areas thanks to phytohormones and vitamins found in lime.
