Sometimes we all need a bit of pampering, but if you don’t have time to book an urgent spa appointment, you can still achieve health and beauty benefits by trying some spa hacks at home. Here are simple yet pampering ideas.

Blog 10 Spa hacks

Get Steamed

Try this facial steam treatment that will open your pores to release toxins and dirt. Boil a pot of water and then place a towel over your head so you can hold your face close to the steam. If you want something even more pampering, add some essential oils to the water. Mint is great when you have sinusitis, while orange and rosemary are oils that alleviate a cold.

Pamper Your Feet

Give your feet some love with a foot soak. Mix one cup of oatmeal with 1/2 a cup of Epsom salt, six tablespoons of olive oil, two sprigs of rosemary, two teaspoons of honey and one cup of coconut oil. Mix them well. While you’re soaking your feet in warm water, take the mixture with your hands and rub it into your skin, focusing on any rough areas. This is a great way to exfoliate dead skin cells before you paint your nails so that your feet look fabulous in time for sandal season!

Feed Your Face

A DIY facial can get rid of dull skin before spring arrives. Mash up a banana in a bowl and then add one tablespoon of honey and 10 drops of lemon juice. Apply it to your face and sit with it for 15 minutes before rinsing off. The honey moisturizes your skin while the banana and lemon brighten it up.

Give Your Face a Massage

Massage is a great way to boost circulation so that more oxygen and nutrients can reach your skin. A calming massage can also help to firm your face and ward off wrinkles. Boost the smoothness of your forehead by pressing your forefingers and middle fingers in the spot above your eyebrows. Then, using circular movements, travel all the way up your forehead.

Get Gorgeous Nails Easily

  • You don’t have to be stuck with any messes you make during your DIY manicure. Once you’ve painted your nails, apply a makeup brush with acetone to any spots beyond your nail border that got splattered.
  • Always moisturize your cuticles before you start! Make your own cuticle moisturizer by adding a tablespoon of beeswax and two tablespoons of shea butter to a saucepan with a bit of water in it. Once the ingredients have melted, remove them from the heat. Add in a few drops of Vitamin E oil, five drops of orange essential oil and five drops of lavender essential oil. Mix it well. Place it in a jar where it will thicken for luxurious use.
