Home Spa Treatments

Want to save some of your hard-earned cash?  Have your spa treatment in the comfort of your home!

Yes, it’s so relaxing to spend a day in a spa and enjoy some exfoliating treatments, but if going to the spa is beyond your budget, there are some at-home treatments you can do yourself, and which will work just as well.  Try these simple spa-inspired concoctions that will leave your skin looking fresh and glowing:

Salt Scrub

You will need: 3 cups fine sea salt; 3/4 cup olive oil and 3/4 cup sweet almond oil

How to Make:

In a bowl, stir olive oil and salt using an egg beater. Add 3-4 drops of sweet almond oil to the mixture. You may also choose the essential oil you want to use. Peppermint, for instance, helps perk up your mood. This mixture is good for 15 applications. Simply place in a sealed jar to keep it fresh.

How to Use:

A salt scrub is good for exfoliating dry skin. This recipe is especially effective on areas like your elbows, knees and feet. After a warm shower, don’t dry off completely as this works best when you’re a bit moist. Using circular motions, rub the mixture throughout your skin starting with your extremities and working your way to your heart. This is also good for your blood circulation. Wash off mixture.

Remember not to use salt scrub if you just shaved your legs or have minor cuts in your skin. If you’re pregnant or have medical problems, consult your doctor first before using essential oils.

Sugar Body Scrub

You will need: 2 1/4 cups granulated sugar; 1/2 cup canola oil; 2 cups fresh milk

How to Make:

Mix sugar, milk and canola oil in a bowl. Place in a clean jar. Good for 15 applications.

How to Use:

Same procedure as the salt scrub. This mixture though is much milder on the skin.

Sweet Facial Scrub

You will need: 1 tsp brewer’s yeast (stimulates blood circulation); 2 1/4 tsp yogurt (good for balancing ph of your skin); 1 1/2 tsp sugar (for exfoliating)

How to Make:

Mix the ingredients quickly and use right away before sugar dissolves

How to Use:

Apply mixture on face. Stay away from the eyes. Wash off after 5 minutes.
