All women love to be pampered. And of all us know, spa treatments are the best way to feel pampered and relaxed. Well, our budgets don’t really allow us to spend huge bucks on a spa. But now you can treat yourself to a spa treatment without spending too much. Surprised? This article will tell you how to make your own spa treatment at home. So what are we waiting for? Let’s get started!
8 Tips for your Spa Treatment:
1) Pick a Good Day when you’re Home Alone
A spa treatment is all about relaxing and if there are people near you , it may be hard for you to enjoy and feel calm. So choose a day when there is no one at home. This way you can focus only on yourself.
This step is very vital, do not skip it. Always begin your spa treatment with a clean skin, devoid of any dirt. Do not use a soap. Today is different than the usual days, so leave the soap. Instead pick up a nice gentle cleanser and cleanse your face with warm water. If you can find a cleanser with a soy base, then it is even better as they aren’t as irritating to the skin.
3) Try Some Facial Steaming
Facial steaming is as easy as heating a big bowl filled with water on the stove or in the microwave, wrapping a towel over your hair and letting the steam get absorbed in your skin for about five minutes. You can even add a few herbs such as mint, thyme and rosemary along with green tea to the water for making the steam more rejuvenating.
Tone your skin with a nice stimulating toner rich in antioxidants as well as emollients.
5) Facial Masks
Once in seven days, give your skin a wonderful treatment with a hydrating and moisturizing facial mask. You can even make your own facial mask with some wonderful ingredients like bananas and avocado.
6) Facial Peel
Once in seven days, make use of a facial peel. You can make a facial peel at home by using a fruit acid like fresh grapefruit juice, just add some plain crushed aspirin and a half packet of unflavored gelatin in an egg white stiffly whipped.
7) Do a Facial Wrap
An easy facial wrap can be achieved with an OTC product. You can even make one on your own just by soaking nori seaweed in lukewarm vitamin water till it becomes soft. Now apply it on your skin and leave it for about twenty minutes.
