With summer around the corner, it’s the perfect time to beautify dried up winter skin, getting it ready for beach days and hot temperatures.
Many spas offer specialty treatments or remedies for prepping and protecting the skin from the sun. To complement these intensive spa services, you can also perform at-home treatments using everyday items and real produce.
Unwind in the comfort of your home and treat yourself to one of these at-home spa treatments. You’ll almost forget that you aren’t at the Zemi Thai House Spa.
Hydrating Facial Mask:
Blend cold cream, yogurt, honey, aloe vera gel and avocado in a blender. Apply to face and let the mask dry for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse. Skin will be left feeling refreshed and moisturized.
Skin Softening Sugar Scrub:
Mix 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup of raw oatmeal and 1 cup of olive oil together. Apply the mixture on dry skin, using your hands, in exfoliating, circular motions. After scrubbing gently all over, step into the shower and rinse off. Skin will be soft and smooth as butter.
Moisturizing Hair Treatment:
Coconut oil is a simple, one-ingredient hair conditioner and moisturizer. Apply coconut oil to dry hair. Leave it in overnight or condition with a heat cap if you are pressed for time. Wash and go as you normally would for moisturized, shiny hair.
Rough Skin Soother:
Take a freshly cut lemon and gently rub on elbows, knees or any other rough patches. The acid in the lemon will soften rough spots on skin and also lighten any dark areas.
