Spa at home

Dear readers, it’s been a while since I’ve posted an article related to beauty.
I do apologise, there’s so much going on in my life at the moment – it’s been a rollercoaster.

How has your 2012 been? I personally felt that whatever ups and downs in life, there’s nothing like a spa to relieve stress and wash away troubles.

Today, I’ll be sharing with you some tips on having your very own home made spa.

Things you will need
Milk
Brown sugar
Rose petals/flower petals
Lavender oil
Hot ginger tea
Bath towel
Yoghurt (plain or strawberry)
Body lotion
Magazines

Duration : 30-40 minutes

Step 1 : Fill your bathtub with warm running water. Add milk to moisturise skin. Using milk that has expired by one to two days is ok.

Step 2 : When tub is filled, add in rose or any fragrant flower petals with a few drops of lavender oil and soak for 15 minutes. At this moment, just sit back and relax while reading magazines and drinking your favourite hot ginger tea.

Step 3 : Treat your face to a mini spa at the same time by applying plain/strawberry yoghurt. Yoghurt mask is a common homemade mask that has really good moisturising and soothing benefits. It is especially good for acne prone skin.

Step 4 : Use brown sugar and mix with water to make a paste and use that as a exfoliant, body scrub. Scrub off your dead skin cells in gentle circular motions.

Step 5 : Dry yourself with a bath towel. Apply your favourite body lotion.

And there you have it! A spa, as good as what you can find outside, but at the cost of only less than $5. This is my treat to all my readers to end 2012.
