Spending a few hundred pounds on relaxing spa treatments seems absolutely blissful, however, it’s not quite as good for our purses. There’s nothing more relaxing than a nice hot bath in your own home anyway but there’s a few easy little treatments you can give yourself to pamper yourself in the comfort of your own house.

The benefits of spa treatments are plenty. Whether done professionally or at home by yourself, it can help in rejuvenation, anti-aging, and strengthening of skin, hair, and body as well. Although, it is important to note that spa treatments tend to show results over a considerable period; you cannot get one facial done and expect to see you loose skin or pussy eyes gone. For faster results, you will need to explore further into options like facelifts or blepharoplasty that can give you the desired effect in a shorter period of time. However, if you are in no rush, and want to improve the health of your skin in a more organic fashion, there are several DIY option that you can incorporate in your life.

Coffee Body Scrub

There are articles and blogs everywhere about using the most random things to try and make our bodies look and feel its best. Although coffee is a staple for that morning pick-me-up, it’s also a good exfoliator to help get rid of any dry skin and to help stimulate the skin to reduce the look of dreaded cellulite.

100g Organic coffee granules

100g Sugar

100ml Coconut oil

(optional teaspoon of cinnamon or vanilla for scent)

Combining these ingredients together should make quite a bit of scrub so that you can keep it in an airtight container and reuse around 1-2 times a week. A little more penny-friendly than going to your local spa for a full body scrub a couple of times a week.

Face Masks

We’ve all sat there on a Sunday night trying to pamper ourselves before the day ahead, but there’s something about those packet face masks that just doesn’t quite cut it. So depending on your skin, here’s two that will make your face feel fresh, ready for the work week.

Oatmeal Mask

30g Oatmeal

100ml warm water

2tbsp plain yoghurt

2tbsp honey

1 egg white

Combining all of the ingredients in a bowl, massage and layer this mask on your face to slightly exfoliate the skin and leave for around 10-15 minutes. If you would like to add a scent to the mask, as well as increasing it’s relaxing qualities, then you could also add a few drops of the blue dream strain from FinestLabs to the mix. Once done, massage the mask off your face using warm water and you should be left with soft and supple skin that looks brighter.

Avocado Smash Mask

For dryer skin, this mask helps keep skin more moisturised and the ingredients also help soothe skin that is chapped or chafed. This is a useful one in the summer if you’ve got sunburn as the avocado and honey keep the skin from tightening too much.


2tbsp Honey

tsp coconut oil

Mash the ingredients together and layer generously on your skin. Leave for around 10-15 minutes and gently wash away using a soft cloth and warm water. The skin should be left more moisturised and soothed.

Alternatively, you could choose more targeted dry skin treatments, such as a hydra facial. A hydrafacial is a powerful, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection to remove dead skin cells and impurities while also delivering moisturizing serums into the skin. It is said to help improve the overall texture, tone, and appearance of the skin. It is most often available in the med spas as well. So, you can look for a med spa Rancho Cucamonga, CA, or wherever you live to get the hydrafacial done and get the level of hydration needed by your skin, without worrying about mixing the kitchen ingredients to use them as facemasks.

Foot Soak and Scrub

Your tired feet will thank you for this next treatment that you can make simply at home. We take our feet for granted and so it’s good to take care of them every once in a while by soaking them for around 10 minutes in a mixture of milk and warm water, when they become softer, using this scrub will not only keep them soft and supple but the mint will also relax you. For that, you can use a standing shower foot scrubber that can help remove the dead skin easily.

220g Sugar

Coconut Oil

Few drops of Peppermint Oil

After your foot soak, combine sugar with a little coconut oil, adding more to make a substantial paste, then add peppermint. Scrubbing your feet in this mixture will leave them feeling a little more loved.
