Leap Year: Pamper Yourself For An Extra 24 Hours

Rachel Adler

With the pressure from work or school, friends, family and everything else that we all have in our day-to-day lives, finding “me” time isn’t always at the top of our lists. But when we do finally get that pampering time, we realize we need to do it more often just to stay sane.

In a recent study, 40 percent of young women said that they would give up coffee, television and wine for a month in exchange for just one additional hour of pampering. Almost half of the women studied (47 percent) said that they don’t pamper themselves enough and 16 percent said they’re lucky if they get to pamper themselves once a year!

Luckily, this year is a Leap Year, and we have an extra day this February. Take that extra day to pamper yourself. We have some tips below to get you started — and you don’t even need to make a spa appointment.
