We’re in the midst of summer, so relaxation has never been more important. With the kids out of school or the beachgoers crowding the roads, the brutal sun on our skin and the saltwater coating our hair, we all need to take the time for some serious relaxation therapy. Of course, there’s always the typical spa day – with a cucumber slice on the eyes and creamy lotions rubbed on your arms and legs – but this feels like the perfect chance to go a little off-script. Take a chance on something a little more unconventional and try something new! From earthy clay masks to salty, full-body scrubs, you just might take you relaxation to another level.
