A DIY spa day for guys.
He’s dashing, sensitive and a gift to all womankind, but he could certainly learn a thing or two about the art of grooming. Help your guy, and his pack of fun-loving Martians, learn the basics of good grooming by throwing a men’s spa party. And for just a few hours of manly, sports-free fun (okay, we’ll work in sports somehow), show the boys that contrary to what they might think, plucking ear hairs does not constitute a personal pampering regimen. Great to do on a rainy day when the cable’s out!

Home Spa Treatments
Bring out his inner mixologist with these easy, effective home spa treatments.
The Game Plan
Have the boys start fresh by using disposable cleansing cloths to absorb dirt and oil from their faces. Then have them exfoliate, mask, tone and apply a moisturizer. Make sure to have plenty of clean towels available (boys are messy!) and familiar tools like paint brushes, plastic putty knives and metal bowls to mix and apply their potions. And be prepared to help them — they know not what they do! If you have a paraffin wax hand spa, have them dip in their hands, cover with plastic liners and barbeque grill mitts (or boxing gloves!).
- Shrimp Po’Boys
- Bistro Fries with Parsley and Garlic
