Now you can bring the spa home to you, and could do it all with a spot of pampering.
From nourishing face masks to invigorating body scrubs, creating treatment is easy. "Making your own beauty products means you'll save money, plus you'll know exactly what you're putting on your skin.
Here is a list of some natural remedies that you can make at home-
1. Watermelon Hydrating Mask
Watermelon is extremely refreshing and hydrating for the skin. This recipe is excellent for oily skin. If you have dry skin, add a banana instead of the yoghurt, or a mixture of half yoghurt, half banana.
1 cup watermelon, 3 tablespoons yoghurt
Mash the watermelon in a small bowl until smooth. Add yoghurt and blend. Apply to your face and neck and cover your face with a moist face cloth. Leave for 10 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.
2. Calming Rose and Chamomile steam
Rose has a wonderful scent that helps you to relax. Paired with the calming properties of chamomile, this is great steam to use after cleansing and before a face mask.
1 litre boiling water, a pinch of rose petals (or rose oil), one chamomile tea bag.
Pour the boiling water into a bowl, followed by the rose and a generous pinch of chamomile tea. Allow to steep and the water to slightly cool, then place your face over the steam with a towel over your head.
3. Avocado Hair Mask
This hair mask is ideal for dry or normal hair.
1 avocado, 1 tablespoon olive oil
Mash the avocado in a bowl, adding the oil to the mixture. Apply to your hair, beginning at the roots, working it all the way through to the ends. Cover with a shower cap, and a hot towel if desired, and relax for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Shampoo and condition as normal.
4. Coconutty Body Scrub
After using this, you'll emerge from the shower with gorgeously soft, silky skin.
1/2 cup coconut oil, 1 cup brown sugar, five drops of essential oil or 2 drops vanilla extract.
Combine the sugar and coconut oil in a saucepan and melt the coconut oil on low heat. Add an essential oil or essence, then allow the mixture to cool. Apply to damp skin when you're in the shower. Rinse well and either use coconut oil as a moisturiser afterwards or jojoba oil to seal in the hydration.
