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
Rose petals/flower petals
Hot ginger tea
Yoghurt (plain or strawberry)
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.
