Skin care products can make you cost. Why not try the home spa treatments to get expensive store-bought results with simple things you can probably even find in your bathroom cabinet or kitchen?
Three steps to go before getting dermatologically therapeutic for your skin, hair and nails with no expensive spa bills.
Step 1: Deep Hydrating
Fill your tub. Your body needs to "take the waters." Warm water can make you relax and hydrate you, and some Epsom salts can even do it better. You also have some choices for further effects:
1) a teaspoon of oil - use your favorite body oil, mineral oil, or even the oil in your kitchen (olive oil, peanut oil, etc.) - whatever you like, can enhance the hydrating process.
2) a few drops of lavender essence if you want to release stress too.
Then soak in the tub. Soak for at least 5 minutes and preferably 15 minutes or more to make your body fully hydrated. This will make your body ready for the next step.
Step 2: DIY Body Scrubs
Body exfoliating scrub treatment makes your skin smooth and soft. Having soaked in the tub for at least 5 minutes, your skin will be ready for exfoliation. Use a shower sponge or a luffa sponge to remove rough and dead skin especially on your feet, ankles, elbows and knees (you may want to spend a little more time on these parts). A little body cleanser can smooth the slip. Use some Epsom salt to help draw impurities and relax yourself if you need.
Step 3: Body Moisturization
After stepping out of the tub, pat your skin dry and use your favorite body moisturizer to keep all the benefits inside your body. You will have velvety skin in the next few days.
