It’s weekend again, yay!
Although it’s probably going to be my last weekend at home I’m excited about the gtbank food and drink fair happening this weekend, you can read all about it here.
However, aside from all these events and owambe, the weekends are perfect for good skin treats and pampering especially after a long week.
So what if you can’t go to spa, you can absolutely treat yourself to good facial at home. And guess what, you don’t have to spend too much for this.
Here’s what you need;
- Hot water (boiling temperature)
- Herbs; Rosemary or Moringa or any other
- Body Scrub
- Facial mask
How To Go About It
1 – Treat Yourself To A Facial Steam
Facial steam helps to remove the dirts and impurities in the skin.
I don’t know if this would work for every other person but it surely does work for me. I steam my face by putting it over bowl of boiled water infused with rosemary fig leaves or moringa seeds. Over here I made used of moringa seeds, moringa seeds –
After steaming, rinse your with water (warm water preferably). You can treat yourself to a facial steam twice in a month.
2 – Exfoliate
I already stressed on how important exfoliation, you can read about it here. I used ‘eden apricot srub’ for exfoliation, I already did a review of this body scrub in that same post I talked about exfoliation. You can use what works for you and If you don’t have a body scrub you can try a DIY scrub like the combination of sugar, olive oil and honey – there are several other amazing DIY scrub recipes that you can try.
3 – Mask Your Face In Goodness
I absolutely love the goodness of the DIY coffee mask I posted about on here but since I didn’t have coffee at home I just did a simple DIY mask with egg white and honey. The egg white firms up the skin, while honey – leave for about 15-20 mins then rinse off with warm water. If you already have a mask that you use, you could use that too.
4 – Moisturise
A skin treat is never complete without moisturising. Apply a moisturising lotion, cream or oil to finish off the treat. In this case, I made use of olive oil.
And we are done.
If for one reason or the other, you can’t go to a spa, perhaps you are too busy or can’t afford that, you can just do this at home without having to spend too much.
So what are your thoughts on treating your self to a facial spa? Do you think this is something you woukd try? Please let me know in the comment section.
With love, Lydia.
