Professional Spa treatments are great, but they are expensive and time consuming. The great thing about good DIY spa treatments is that it costs very little and many times uses products you already have at home. Here’s how you can do them at home.

Dry Brush: Dry brushing is an old-age technique that exfoliates the dead skin cells which accumulate on your body. Most of the body spa treatments of the world consist of this technique. Use a dry brush to brush off that extra dull skin cells to renew the texture and improve blood cirulation.Dry brushing rejuvenates you from head to toe besides smoothening and softening the skin on your body.

Body Scrub: Women always crave for a healthy, flawless skin on their bodies. It’s easy to obtain that. Just scrub the skin with a mix of oatmeal and honey. Rinse with warm water and follow the regime with applying a moisturiser. Use a non-greasy moisturiser for best results.

Homemade Acne Fighter: For fighting acne a Pumpkin Mask is a great cure. Take half a cup plain pumpkin and mix it with 500 gm yoghurt. Add two tablespoon of lime juice to it and mix it well. After a bath, apply it on the affected area on your face and rinse it off with lukewarm water after twenty minutes.

For a healthy glowing skin:

1. Honey-lemon scrub: Tie all of your hair back away from the face area. Steam your face and let your pores be open. Now apply a mixture of honey and lemon all over. Let the mask be there on your face for twenty minutes. Wash off with warm water and finally splash off cold water to close the pores. It will tighten your skin and will give you a glowing skin.

2. Coconut oil Lemon Sugar scrub: Combine some coconut oil and lemon syrup with two teaspoon of sugar .This combination works well to hydrate the dry skin and leave it amazingly fresh and soft.

Pedicure at home: Chasing kids and being a wonder woman for 24-7 takes a toll on your mind, body and soles. You may be short on time and money but they are no reason to walk around with dry, cracked, aching feet. The solution is a spa treatment. But you can also opt for a DIY pedicure. In four simple steps, you can pamper yourself with a technique that’s easy on your feet and wallet too.

1. Soak your feet in a warm bath for five minutes to soften them. Add milk to moisturise. Add any antiseptic essential oil like tea tree or peppermint to fight back minor infections besides stimulating your senses.

2. Scrub the feet with a strong exfoliator.You can also prepare a one at home by mixing honey with olive oil with brown sugar.

3. Add a little of fresh lime juice to treat extra rough spots on the feet.

Day Spa – What is it & what services can I get at a Day Spa

There are several kinds of spas, but majorly there are two kinds: ones that have residential facility and those that don’t. Among those that offer stay-in facility are resort spas, village spas and recovery retreat spas, these become popular holiday options. But what if you don’t have so many days to spare? The best option then is a day spa, which open their doors to you for a whole day but you don’t spend the night.

Day SpaFacials, haircuts, massages and wraps are the common services provided by a day spa. A day spa is mostly a mix of health and beauty treatments combined; these can be natural or semi-surgical in nature, like skin treatment for acne scars and treatments to soothe razor burns. What separates day spas from fly-by-night salons swindling customers are the variety in terms of treatments, like algae wraps, candle aroma therapy, Thai massages and Ayurvedic treatments, to name some.

Accompanied by great cafes and in-house restaurants, a day spa can be your perfect holistic beauty retreat in the middle of a city.

Unlike resort spas, day spas can charge you by the hour, by the therapies chosen or offer day-long packages. So, choose your indulgence and get pretty!

What is a Spa?

What is a SpaThe term spa was originally used to refer to mineral springs which were considered to have healing properties. The earliest use of spas can be traced back to the town now called Spa in Belgium where the concept of curing deficiencies by drinking spring water was popular. Back then the town was called Aquae Spadanae.

But how did a healing pool of water become a symbol of riches and relaxation? The story is a long one, but somewhere in the 17th century with several kings and men of stature turned to Bath. The vogue caught on and Bath became the social capital of England. Other spas in Europe followed suit and over the next few centuries the rest of the world caught on, albeit for commercial interests.

A typical modern day spa thus includes exotic massages and therapies, meditation, mind and spirit balancing exercises, various beauty treatments with health benefits… but no longer do most commercial spas offer the original elixir — natural water rich in minerals.

With spas popping up in every nook and cranny and cubbyhole salons with a bench also calling themselves spas, the International Spa Association defined what is a Spa. The ISA declared a spa to be: places that are exclusively dedicated to improving the well-being of their customers and provide services that enhance the mental, physical and spiritual state of a person.

To get the most out of your experience in a spa, check the therapies they offer, the efficiency of the service, hygiene and ask for a tour before you check in or take a virtual tour if it is an outstation spa. If you do go to a spa, check in for at least a whole day to really soak in the benefits.
