"Do it Yourself" Spa Treatment





Nothing can feel more relaxing than having your own spa treatment at home. You have your trust all to your hands, and it is even free of charge! Just follow these steps, and you would have your very own spa treatment at home.


First, get rid of all distractions. The point of a spa treatment is to relax, so choose a day when you are home alone so that you will only need to concentrate on yourself. You can play some soothing music in the background if it helps you relax. Start off with cleansing your face using a gentle cleanser and warm water. Make sure you wash off all dirt of you face so that your skin can absorb the later products properly.





Next, you will want to open up your pores so that you can rid of any embedded dirt. This can be done by doing facial steaming. A homemade facial steam can be done by adding hot water into a basin, and with a towel draped over your head, face the steam from the water for 5 minutes. You can choose to add herbs like rosemary, thyme, or mint to the hot water for a more rejuvenating steam.


After this, dry your face well with a towel, and apply toner to tighten your skin and close the pores. Subsequently, use a facial mask with hydrating properties so that your skin does not dry out too easily while absorbing its nutrients. You can make your own mask by using ingredients like avocado, banana or Aloe Vera. Alternatively, you can use a facial peel, to peel off dead skin cells. You can make one out of egg white. You can also use a facial scrub to get the stubborn dead skin cells out so that there is space for your skin cells to regenerate.





After that, make sure you moisturize your skin. Use a product with active ingredients such as Vitamin C, copper peptides, hyaluronic acid, retinol, or alpha lipoic acid. Lastly, make sure you apply a layer of sunscreen to your skin so that your efforts would not go to waste by the sun's skin damaging radiation.
