Why: We live in the spa age: Pampering is no longer a special-occasion luxury but a necessity weâ€™ve come to expectâ€”and need. With those crazy work hours, family responsibilities, and, of course, that fabulous social life, if we had it our way we would hit that spa (at least) every week. But, alas, we canâ€™tâ€”well, most of us canâ€™t, anyway. Solution? Bring some of that luscious spa feel to your home. How about these magical towels by Kumi Kookoon that help prevent skin from aging? (No, itâ€™s not a hoax.) After using these, itâ€™ll be pretty hard to go back to those cottons from Bed Bath & Beyond. Not only are the towels made from 100 percent hypoallergenic silk but they also contain 18 amino acids with nutrients to help your skin stay young. And donâ€™t worry; theyâ€™re machine-washable (in fact, they get softer as you wash them) as well as mildew-resistant. Drying yourself off never felt so good. To top it off, slip right into Kookoonâ€™s quilted mulberry silk slippers (extra-padded heel and all), which come in 12 colors and in a chic traveling bag.
Price: Wash towel, $25; hand towel, $45; bath towel, $135. Slippers, $44.
