How To Pamper Yourself With A Home Spa
Visiting a spa is one of the most relaxing things you can do after a stressful day. Unfortunately, not everyone has the luxury of visiting Dermani Medspa, and they have to go without the soothing feeling of a spa treatment. The new lockdown situation has made it very difficult to get a spa treatment when you have the time to do it. With so many businesses closed, a few enterprising individuals realized that you could pamper yourself from the comfort of your own home. Here are a few ways you can take care of yourself at home using spa-like treatments.
Chocolate Face Masks
The Houston Chronicle tells us that chocolate was an $18 billion industry in 2010. Today it’s probably worth even more, and this face mask shows you why. Not only is chocolate the food of the gods, but it can also do wonders for your skin. This face mask is a combination of Greek yogurt, cocoa powder, a raw banana, buttermilk, honey, and lemon juice, mixed in a consistency that isn’t so liquid that it runs off your face. If you suffer from dry skin, you should leave out the lemon juice.
Exfoliate with Green Tea
St. Ives mentions that green tea can be a fantastic benefit to your skin. It’s also packed with antioxidants and is high in caffeine, which helps keep your skin stimulated. Finally, green tea is a fantastic moisturizer to ensure that your skin isn’t dehydrated or dried out. To make this exfoliator, you’ll need two bags of green tea, a cup of brown or white sugar, half a cup of extra-virgin olive oil, and w tablespoons of honey. This recipe makes enough for three exfoliations, so you may want to store the excess in a watertight container until your next use.
This concoction sounds like it might be a bad idea, with how sticky honey is, but you’re not using that much honey. It’s relatively simple to do as well. Add two tablespoons of honey to a running, warm bath, and let it soak for fifteen minutes. Next, add five tablespoons of baking soda and let it soak for a further fifteen minutes. Before climbing into the bath, test the mixture on one part of your skin to ensure you don’t have any allergic reactions. If there isn’t any reaction, you can slide into the bath and enjoy it to your leisure.
Spa Not Open? No Problem!
Spas may charge you hundreds of dollars for similar treatments to these, and you have no idea where the ingredients are coming from. With a little care and a few simple recipes, you can produce your own spa-like mixtures that work as well. You might want to adjust these recipes until you get a combination that works best for your body. Don’t be afraid to experiment, but be careful about the things you’re experimenting with. Not all household materials are harmless, and knowing which ones are dangerous can save you some trouble later on.
