Here are the top five ways to give yourself a spa treatment at home:
Want to get rid of dry, flaky lips? All you have to do is whip up two simple ingredients to make yourself a lip scrub.
Most people tend to get dry lips during the winter months and some have to bear with the dryness throughout the year. The good news is that there’s an easy remedy for this condition.
Take some brown sugar and olive oil and mix them together. Combine a single tablespoon of each in a small bowl and make a granulated paste.
Use your finger or a soft toothbrush to massage onto your lips in a gentle, circular motion. Rinse off with water after a couple of minutes to enjoy softer and smoother lips.
Papaya Face Mask
You can make a face mask using papaya, eggs, and some Greek yogurt. The alpha-hydroxy acids in papaya make it a natural exfoliatorm, while egg whites are rich in protein and tighten pores and regenerate skin cells.
The ingredients needed for this concoction include the following:
- ½ fresh papaya (seeds removed and diced)
- 1 tablespoon of plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon of white tea (brewed and cooled)
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 organic egg white
Blend these ingredients using a fork or a food processor until it turns into a paste. Apply it to your face and neck. Let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes before rinsing off your face with warm water. To check out more skincare treatments, click here.
Avocado Hair Mask
Condition your hair and make it look shinier and healthier using a simple DIY hair mask. The ingredients you need are:
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1 ½ avocados
First, mix the egg yolk, oil, and honey together. Mash the avocados with a fork in a separate bowl and add the paste into the rest of the mixture.
Apply the paste to wet hair starting from the ends and working your way up. Wait for 15 to 20 minutes to let the hair mask do its job and then rinse. Use a shampoo and rinse again for best results.
A popular DIY beauty treatment is a facial steam session. You can easily manage this even without a proper esthetician steam wand.
Fill water in a large pot and add 6 drops of your favorite essential oil. After bringing the water to a boil, carefully take the pot off the heat and pour it into a clean sink.
Drape a towel over your head and shoulders, and sit with your head hovering over the sink. Breathe deeply and stay in this position for 10-15 minutes to take in the steam before patting your skin dry with a towel.
Depuffing Eye Mask
Using cucumbers as a remedy for puffy eyes is an age-old recipe. All you need to do is take a cold cucumber and grate it over a paper towel. After you are done, wrap the pieces burrito-style and compress it. Tilt your head back and apply over closed eyes for instant relief.
