Our Top DIY Home Spa Day Tips

Ever thought of making your own homemade face scrub or mask? Here’s some of our favourite DIY beauty tips to help you plan the perfect spa day.

Homemade Face Scrub & Mask

Make your own homemade face scrub using your favourite face wash and some table salt for an easy 2-in-1 facial. Now, for those who want to soak in the bath with a nourishing face mask, grab some milled oats, honey, one egg yolk and combine together. This beautiful mask has exfoliating and brightening qualities that’ll leave you glowing.

DIY Lip Scrub

Here’s how you can make your own homemade lip scrub using common household ingredients. Simply mix 1 tsp of sugar with 1 tsp of honey and get scrubbing! If you want to add some refreshing scents then add a couple drops of your favourite essential oils.

DIY Undereye Treatment If you need help combating tired eyes, simply cut cotton pads in half, dampen with water and refrigerate. When you’re ready, drop your favourite serum onto the pads and place under your eyes, our personal favourite is our vitamin C oil which helps to brighten the under eye area.

DIY Infused Water

Keep your whole body hydrated too by creating a refreshing spa beverage with some cucumbers, berries, mint and your favourite citrus fruits. Cut them up and place them in a large jug or bottle filled with water, infuse your H20 overnight or for a few hours before you plan to drink it. Use any extra slices of fruit as snacks throughout your home spa day and don’t forget to place cucumbers under your eyes to help reduce puffiness.

DIY Dry Hands Beauty Hacks

With all the extra hand washing necessary during COVID-19, your hands might be a little on the dry side, so to help you combat dehydrated skin try our simple treatment for soft palms. Start by softening your hands in lukewarm soapy water.

Then using a mixture of table salt and olive oil you can create your own scrub to help eliminate dead skin. Rinse off and dry before naturally pushing back your cuticles and removing hangnails with cuticle scissors. Select a cream or balm to moisturise your hands with and don’t forget to apply a few drops of oils to your cuticles to leave them hydrated too!

Our Top Beauty Tip: Slip on cotton gloves overnight to intensify the hydration process. No gloves, no worries, cotton socks will do the trick too!

How to Use Your New Skincare Routine

1. Start your facial by using a face wash to remove any make-up or build up on your skin.

2. Secondly, use your homemade face scrub to gently remove dead skin cells and bring bodily vitamins and minerals to the surface before rinsing.

3. Apply your face mask, add your DIY eyepatches and let them sit for 10 minutes, then apply the DIY lip scrub and massage. To remove, simply use a warm damp towel to remove.

4. Once your face is dry apply your favourite serum and use a facial roller to move the product into your skin, massaging in upwards motions from the neck up, this will help aid absorption and the drainage of any puffiness.

5. Finish by massaging your go-to moisturiser into your face, neck and décolletage and giving your dry hands some TLC using our DIY remedies Look at that, you’re glowing!

Get your loofah ready and drape your towel and pjs on the radiator so you can slip into cosy clothing after you’ve soaked.
