There's nothing quite so relaxing as a day at the spa. There is no better way to feel completely refreshed and totally rejuvenated than a day spent with manicures and massages, spa baths and face masks. If you can't make it to the spa for your weekly treatments, there are a number of spa treatments you can do at home.
Hair Moisture and Shine
Peel back and entire avocado and grab 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mash the 2 together, making sure that they form a nice admixture that will be ready to apply to your hair. Section off your hair so that it can be "painted" and rub the combination onto your hair and massage your scalp with it for a bit. Next, with the mixture still in your hair, place a shower cap over your head with hot water inside of it so it can really allow the it to soak into your hair and head. Let it sit for approximately 30 minutes, then wash it out with another blast of warm water. Comb out the last bit of avocado and voila! Instant moisture and shine.
A facial is another easy process that you can readily do at home. Just grab a banana and some honey, then create an admixture of the two. Make sure to clean your face off before you apply the mixture, then, after applying it, let it sit for anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes. There are other options besides banana and honey, although these two combinations tend to work for a person with any skin type, whether it be dry, oily or a combination of the two. Other popular forms of DIY masks are Greek yogurt and honey or strawberry mixed with oatmeal.
A milk bath, made by using coconut milk, whole milk, olive oil and a small bit of vanilla extract, can do wonders for rejuvenating your skin and making sure that you feel incredible afterwards. It is recommended that you use 2 to 3 cups of the types of milk and only a small bit of vanilla extra – 1 tablespoon should be adequate. Run a warm bath and mix in the ingredients as the bathtub is filling up. Sit back, relax and allow your skin to soak up these incredible ingredients. You'll feel like a new person afterwards.
Although it is great to treat yourself by going to a local spa, spending a day at the spa sometimes doesn't even require that you leave home. Hopefully, this advice has given you some ideas of how you want to spend your next spa day.Share
