It feels great to indulge in a beauty spa treatment, but most of us cannot justify the high cost of commercial health spa beauty treatments on a regular basis. You might be surprised to learn that you may be able to get even better results by giving yourself a health spa beauty treatment in your own home with inexpensive supplies that you probably already have in your kitchen or bathroom!
Use these beauty spa treatment secrets at home to pamper yourself with the luxurious feeling of smooth and healthy skin, hair, and nails while saving time and money!
For Deep Clean & Shiny Hair - Make a vinegar rinse by
mixing one and a half cups of water with one half cup apple cider
vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray your (dry) roots with this mixture and
leave on for 5 minutes. Rinse your hair thoroughly. You can add a few
drops of fruity or light floral essential oil to add a nice scent and
eliminate vinegar smell.
Use once a week.
Exfoliate & Moisturize with an Oatmeal Mask - Make a facial beauty mask by mixing 1/2 cup each of oatmeal and plain whole milk yogurt; Spread the mixture on your face and relax for 15 minutes; rinse.
Use once or twice a week.
Hydrate & Condition your Nails - Mix 1 cup of olive oil with 2 cups of sugar (yes, sugar!) and rub all over your hands and nails, especially the cuticles. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wipe of with a warm, damp washcloth.
Olive oil is rich
in vitamin E and antioxidants to strengthen nails; sugar helps to remove
dead skin around your cuticles.
Give your Feet a Refreshing Bath - Soak your feet in cool brewed black tea for 30 minutes. Tannins in the tea help reduce sweating and odor. The cool soak leaves your feet feeling extra fresh!
Treat your Body to an Invigorating Scrub - Mix a cup of olive oil with a cup of sugar, sea salt, or coffee grounds (for exfoliation) and 2 tablespoons of honey. Rub a small amount of this mixture into your skin before showering once a week.
