Body: We often forget the skin of the body, paying too much attention to the face. Undoubtedly, if you go to doing a home spa will require a good body scrub before the hot bath. You should mix all the ingredients and apply them on dry skin with gentle circular motions: ideally, you use sugar as the element that removes dead cells – although you can also use coffee or coarse salt – and add oil, honey or even a little water to make the pasta.

After that, turn your shower into a sauna: open the tap with the hot water to the maximum for 20 minutes and all closed. Put some essential oil of lavender, vanilla or rosemary are de-stressing in a compress and place it on the forehead, sit under the shower and take advantage of the steam.

Hair: Having a home spa is the ideal time to restore your hair in depth. Coconut oil is ideal for women who have very curly or curly hair, but also for those with brittle hair. Apply the coconut oil and leave it to act overnight though we can put on a shower cap and get hot if we do not have much time. It gives shine and makes hair stronger, more hydrated and more beautiful.

Manicure and pedicure: In addition to cutting, filing and painting the nails, we must also give them extra care of nutrition. Blend in the cold cream blender, 2 drops of tea tree oil, 5 lavender oil, 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 banana. Apply on feet and hands and put on gloves and a pair of thick socks. If it is winter you can put hands and feet on a bag of hot water to make it work better. So sit down and watch a movie and relax.

Relax: The most important thing about having a home spa is to be able to relax: not only do you have to have a beauty treatment, but also to be able to generate your own private space in which we have no obligations for a few hours and we can eliminate the accumulated stress.
