Do you want to enjoy a spa experience that fits your budget? Do you want to go to a spa, but just don’t have the time? Here’s the list of some homemade products that will help rejuvenate the body without going into an expensive spa.

 

Homemade body scrubs

  •  A mixture of equal parts of olive oil and sugar can be a good choice for sensitive areas such as your face and your lips. A mixture of ground coffee and olive oil can help you minimize cellulite. If you are looking for something little more complex, you can try mixing a little  bit of papaya with oatmeal and aloe vera gel. The oatmeal is a great natural exfoliant while papaya and aloe vera contain enzymes that are beneficial for the skin.

 

Facials

  • For a face mask that will help you fight those unwanted acne, mix 1 tbs of cinnamon with1 tbs of ground nutmeg and a teaspoon of honey into a thick paste. Both nutmeg and and cinnamon have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties while honey moisturizes the skin. Citrus fruit masks are probably not the best choice for those who have dry, sensitive skin but they can be a fabulous choice for those who want to tighten pores and have a glowing complexion. To combat puffiness around the eyes cooled tea bags or a few slices of cucumber are tested remedies that deliver good results.

Body lotion

  • If you want to spice things up a bit then try mixing¼ cup of coconut milk with 1 cup of body cream and add a few drops of vanilla extract . If you don’t use this mixture right away don’t worry as it can be used for 5 days with no problems if you store it in a dry cool place.
