At-Home Spa Treatments
If you want that wonderful spa feeling but don't want to pay high spa prices, you should consider giving yourself an at-home spa treatment. There are many common and inexpensive products that are probably already in your home that you can use to make your own custom spa treatments, like scrubs and facials.
It's no secret that getting rid of dead skin cells is an easy way to feel refreshed and for your skin to look healthier, and spas often charge an arm and a leg for this service. What is not so well-known is that a lot of items you already have at home can actually be used as easy, inexpensive, and very effective natural scrubs!
Listed below are a few ingredients you can use for at-home body scrubs and directions on how to use them to achieve healthy, refreshed skin:
- Coffee Grounds. Save your used coffee grounds and you're already one step closer to more radiant skin. After a shower, simply mix 2 cups of used coffee grounds with 1/2 cup of raw sugar and a few tablespoons of olive oil and rub on any areas where you want to remove dead skin. Use circular motions with your fingers or a washcloth. When you wipe yourself clean a few minutes later, the dead skin cells will be gone and your skin will look much smoother.
- Sea salt. Putting a little sea salt in the shower gel you already have is also a great way to add a little punch to your bath routine. Make sure you've got a gel rich in moisture and the salt will simply wash away your dead skin and leave you feeling refreshed in a great natural way!
Brown Sugar. Sea salt may be too rough for sensitive skin, so if you still want all the benefits of a natural scrub without causing any potential irritation, mix some brown sugar with almond or olive oil and apply in the same gentle, circular motions you would with other scrubs.
