If the idea of throwing an at-home spa party for your tween or teenager sounds like fun--but also expensive--check out these do-it-yourself skin-care recipes and printable labels from Nonpareil Magazine.
The online publication offered the instructions as a suggestion for a bridal shower theme, but there's no reason why young girls couldn't follow the same directions to throw a spa party themselves.
Nonpareil designed the homemade products to look like desserts atop a treat table, adding to the playfulness of the party. The instructions include recipes for a sugar scrub, candy-colored soaps, scented lotions, lip balm and more. They also include photo-illustrated directions for making "bath bombs" that look like frosted cupcakes.
Nonpareil includes printable labels that are colorful and modern.
By making the beauty and skin-care formulas yourself, you could save money on an otherwise pricy party. Plus, making the products could be a party-time activity for the guests, each of whom would go home with a goody-bag full of new, homemade spa products.
