Pampering yourself costs a lot when you go to a spa. If you are reluctant to spend the money to treat yourself to a special day, you are not alone. Many women forgo facials, massages, manicures, and pedicures because they don’t want to spend the money to get it done. But you don’t have to! There are some great ways to pamper and take care of your beauty routine yourself at home, from DIY hair color to basic beauty tips to inexpensive-at home facials that are also fresh and healthy. Below are a few great facials you can do at home. Finding the ingredients will be easy and application will be a cinch.
Mint and Lavender Mask
This DIY facial makes use of ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. You’ll use raw honey, which has natural enzymes and antioxidants and is often used to cure infections that are resistant to antibiotics. Warm a teaspoon of raw honey and combine with a raw egg. Mix it to form a paste and then add a teaspoon each of dried lavender and chopped mint. Lightly spread on your face and relax for about 15 minutes. Your skin should feel relaxed, moisturized, and tightened as a result.
Oatmeal gives you the invigorating exfoliation you crave when you want to cleanse your pores. It also helps to remove dirt and oil, which helps to prevent blackheads, and fights dryness. Combine a ½ cup of very hot water (not quite boiling) and 1/3 cup of oatmeal and let that sit for a couple of minutes to soften. Then add 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt, and an egg white. Apply and let it sit on your face for 15 minutes.
Lemon is a great cleanser, not only for countertops but your face as well. It brightens your skin, helps to get rid of blackheads, and clears oil. This one’s simple: Mix the juice of 1 lemon with a ¼ cup of olive oil, and you have a refreshing cleanser and moisturizer combined.
You never knew DIY could be so fun, did you? There’s no reason to worry about scheduling a salon visit that will break the bank. Try these DIY facials at home and relax in the comfort of your own bathroom. Get ready to exfoliate, cleanse, and rehydrate your skin!
