You don’t need to visit the salon to enjoy luxurious beauty treatments! We’ve compiled a list of 10 you can try from home, and the best part is that they use natural ingredients!
Avocado Mask for Shiny Hair
Avocados are one of our favourite hipster ingredients, but did you know they can enhance the look of your locks? Think guac for your tresses! Simply smash one avocado, add an egg, mix well, then gently work into your hair. Wait for 20 minutes, rinse off, and allow to air dry. Your hair will look fabulously shiny!
Oatmeal for a Soothing Bath
Whilst we associate oatmeal with winter breakfasts, it can also be added to your bath to soothe skin irritation. Add a couple of cups to warm bath water, swish it around, then grab a magazine to enjoy in your own tub of lushness.
Banana Mask to Defeat the Frizz
We love grabbing a banana for a quick, nourishing breakfast, but they’re also amazing for soothing stressed-out frizzy hair. Mash a banana and mix with a small scoop of coconut oil. Work the puree into your hair and kick back for 30 minutes. After a thorough rinse, your hair will be super calm!
Aloe Vera Gel for Breakouts
Spots strike at the worst time, but nature’s got you, girl! Take some pure aloe vera gel and apply directly to breakouts. The soothing, purifying aloe will reduce redness and help to clear the spots. Leave on for 15 minutes then rinse off and pat dry.
Petals in the Tub for Ultimate Relaxation
Grab some petals from your favourite flowers and gently scatter them in a warm bath. The inviting aromas will help you to relax, and leave you skin smelling wonderful!
Oil Pulling for Whiter Teeth
Swishing oil around your mouth for fifteen minutes might not seem like an enticing prospect, but it can have amazing benefits for your oral health! Choose coconut oil to help remove harmful bacteria and plaque, and promote a whiter, brighter smile. If you’re considering whitening your teeth for a more dramatic result, make sure to consult with an experienced dentist.
Peppermint Foot Bath
Do you have tired feet that need a little TLC? Take some fresh peppermint and a cup of salt. Add both to warm water in a bowl and dunk your feet. They’ll be soothed and refreshed, and you’ll feel incredibly relaxed!
Salt Water for Beachy Curls
Replicate the effortless style of surfer girls by taking a spray bottle, adding warm water, then a couple of tablespoons of salt. Shake well and apply to towel-dried hair. Let your locks dry naturally, and you’ll be left with gorgeous natural curls and lots of volume.
Lemon Juice for Natural Highlights
If you want to lighten your hair without harsh chemicals, turn to citrus! Take a spray bottle, squeeze in the juice of 2-3 fresh lemons, and mix in the same amount of water. Shake and spray onto the hair. Sit in the sun (wearing sunscreen of course) and with repeated applications, you’ll notice natural highlights!
Coconut Oil for Super-Moisturised Skin
Does your skin need a natural boost of moisture? Grab some coconut oil and gently apply to dry areas of your skin. Allow it to settle and you’ll notice an immediate improvement!
