Have you ever gotten home after a long 8-hour day at work and said, ‘man I could really go for the spa right now’? Well now you can. There’s no need to worry about going to the spa when you can turn your own home into one. It’s easy and I’m sure you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen.
Rosewater and Coconut Milk Yes, this combination is amazing. Rosewater not only smells good, but it is also a toner. Coconut milk is a great moisturizer for dry skin. Pour the ingredients into a bathtub and you’ll have a beautifully scented relaxing bath.
Honey and Olive Oil The perfect remedy for dry skin. If you’re like me and have dry skin year round, this would be perfect in the summer instead of using lotion and clogging your pores. Honey contains antioxidants that are great for the skin. It also helps with acne and draws moisture to the skin. Olive oil contains antioxidants as well, but it also improves cell regeneration. Combine the ingredients for a wonderful skin moisturizer.
Honey and Brown Sugar We already know how good honey is for you skin and brown sugar is just as good. Brown sugar fights bacteria and also helps renew cells to give you younger, fresher looking skin. It also absorbs moisture and deposits it into your skin. This is much better than your average exfoliator because what most people don’t know is that the different sizes of the grains in regular exfoliators can cause microscopic tears and spread bacteria around. You’ll really end up doing more harm than good so why not switch to an easy, affordable, all natural facial/body scrub like honey and brown sugar.
Un-petroleum Jelly and Raw Sugar These ingredients can be used as a lip scrub. While chapstick is supposed to relieve your chapped lips, most chapstick actually dries your lips out which is why you find your self constantly reapplying it. Un-petroleum jelly soothes, moisturizes and softens. By combining this with the exfoliating powers of raw sugar, your lips will be free of dryness and extremely soft.
These are just a few at home spa treatments but there are tons more. You’ll feel great after and your skin will be soft and renewed. Besides, you deserve to spoil yourself every now and then.
