Want to pamper yourself? Focus on your hands and feet with a variety of products that can put some luxury back in your life—for far less than a spa visit.

I’m going to be honest right now: I’m ashamed. Today is Nov. 1, which means that for the entirety of October I totally forgot that it was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And that is an egregious, unforgivable slight, and for everyone reading this column, I apologize. As a woman and as a person, I should have known better, and I’m sorry. I should have highlighted products and companies that contribute some of their proceeds to breast cancer awareness and research, and I didn’t do that. Again, I’m sorry.
When I was young, maybe in about fourth or fifth grade, my mother’s best friend died from breast cancer. Every year, my mother remembers that date and commemorates it personally in some way. I think most all of us know someone who has been affected by the disease, and I hope moving forward, I won’t let October slip by without doing something for all those women. You deserve it, and much more.
Along those lines, I’ve thought about featuring items this week that can help women pamper themselves at home for far less than the cost of a spa visit. Luxury can add up, but every woman deserves some time to herself and for herself. You’re worth it.
For my picks, read on!
