At Home Mini Day Spa


Wearing Neuw Moss Knit - Taupe

With compulsory time being spent at home, it’s easy to let the time pass without truly dedicating some to yourself, in ways deeper than ‘chilling out’, scrolling online or binge watching shows (even though those things can be great!)


I mean undivided attention to your own physical self! Showing your body love and appreciation for carrying you through daily life, and being a genuinely amazing human being!

So to thank our beautiful bodies; we are going to give back to our physical selves with a mini home-made Spa Day, because well, we deserve it!

Each mini treatment recipe will include basic ingredients you’ll hopefully have at home, or are readily available at your local supermarkets...

To start my Spa Day I like to pop on my cosiest clothes or dressing gown, followed by some easy listening music and light a few candles. Don’t hesitate to decorate and set your Spa Day Scene!

Below you’ll find some simple easy DIY recipes for a few different treatment ideas.

Dry Hair Mask
1 tsp Honey
1 Egg
1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar

In a small bowl combine your three ingredients. Once combined, disperse through your hair and leave for 30-40 minutes then rinse out.

Dull Hair Mask
Equal parts;
Honey
Coconut oil
Apple cider vinegar

Combine in a jar easy to pour from. Apply to DAMP hair and leave for a minimum of 20 minutes. After, be sure to WASH your hair out to remove any coconut oil residue.

Hydrating Body Scrub (great for all over!)
1/2 cup Dry Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Coconut or Olive Oil
1 tbsp Honey
1 tsp Epsom Salts
Optional - Essential oils for your preferred smell

In a small jar mix your four ingredients together to form your scrub. Once combined use all over your body paying closer attention to buffing your elbows, knees and ankles.

Steam Facial
Half fill a bowl with boiling water, let cool for a few minutes. Add a few drops of your chosen essential oils then steam! For a few minutes simply by leaning over your bowl with a towel covering your head to trap the steam.

Lavender oil is good for oily skin
Tea Tree oil for acne prone skin
Rose absolute oil for dry skin

I always follow my steam facial with a Blemish fighting mask, all you need is;

Blemish Fighting Mask
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Sea salt (if it’s coarse grind it)

Combine your three ingredients in a small jar and apply to your face, applying generously around the T-zone. (Use a clean makeup brush for easy application) let sit for 10-15 mins then wash off with warm water.

Pat your face dry and finish with your own toner and moisturiser.

Simple, effective and affordable body products can be easily be made at home if you’re willing to get your hands a little dirty! Let us know in the comments how you found these treatments or if you have any of your own to share.
