Buying beauty treatments can feel like an indulgence but what if there was a way that you could have a spa experience for much less and in the privacy of your own home? Here are some ways that you can make your own wonderful spa treatments for a fraction of what it would cost if you went to a private salon or bought those expense tubes in the store.
Facial Scrubs. To create the exfoliating quality of a facial scrub, there are few different products you can use. Arm and Hammer Baking Soda, sugar, sea salt and oatmeal all provide the necessary friction to remove dead skin cells naturally. You can always add other ingredients found in your home like olive oil to moisturize or vanilla or peppermint extract for a wonderful scent.
Soaps. Creating your own natural soap seems like a true indulgence but the beauty of doing it yourself is that you can have a soap perfectly suited to your skin type. This eHow page provides the basic information that you will need to get started but you can add herbs, oils or sea salt to make your soap unique.
Hair Conditioner. Check out this wiki page on 3 Ways to Make Hair Conditioner using common household products like yogurt, mayonnaise, and olive oil. Again, adding your own touches of essential oils or spices can provide your unique touch on this indulgence.
Sticking to a budget doesn’t mean that you have to give up luxuries. Using just household products, you can create your own spa-like atmosphere at home with all natural products for a fraction of the cost.
