It's not just moms who go to the spa anymore. Now teens are headed to these pampering centers, often for treatments designed just for them. InSPAration looks at the coolest teen-centered treatments these spas have to offer, then lays out easy-to-do, affordable at-home versions. With an emphasis on mind, body, and spirit (plus tips on hosting chic spa parties), this book motivates teens to learn more about healthy body image, proper nutrition, exercise, and good habits. Of course, it's all pretty luxurious, too! From make-your-own treatments like a Banana Split Body Polish and a Blemish-Buster Facial, to the relaxing and emotionally nurturing mom and daughter retreat, to just-for-fun Glam-Slam Nails, InSPAration is like being pampered for a lifetime instead of just one day.
A closer look at the coolest teen-centered treatments spas have to offer with bonus make-your-own treatments.
