Often when we visit spas our focus is on the massages while scrubs and wraps take a back seat. With this simple to make and easy to use body scrub, you can rinse yourself off of all the tiredness & feel refreshed in no time & very less money.
Things Needed- 1 cup or more raw sugar, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 1 lime
Use it- Mix all the ingredients well by hand or by spoon. The citrus smell of the lime with the cleaning agent mix is great for the body, whereas the sugar will exfoliate well the dead skin. Use it over the body and rub till you feel the need. Leave for a few minutes and take a shower.
Eye Relaxation techniques
Eyes, eyes baby! Both of these procedures have astringent effects on the skin. Where egg whites are rich in Vitamin B2 and riboflavin, chamomile is known to ease redness & puffiness on the skin. Green tea contains tannins, which also shrinks the swollen tissues.
Things Needed- Chamomile or green tea bags, which are steeped and cooled, and 1 egg white beaten
Use it- Both of these are separate forms of relaxation for the tired eyes. First apply the egg white under the eye and let it sit for 15 minutes Rinse it. Now, place the cooled tea bags on the eyes and let it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse it.
Foot scrubs can be a quick and a sure short way of achieving soft and silky ankles with soothing fragrance. We are using peppermint for the fragrance and sugar/salt as the scrubbing agent.
Things needed– 1 to2 cups of coarsest of sugar or Epsom salt, ½ cup coconut oil, peppermint essential oil (10 to 15 drops) and a few drops of the green color food agent.
Use it- Simply mix all the ingredients and seal in a glass jar with lid and keep it in the refrigerator. Apply on your foot once a week & massage well and rinse thoroughly.
Full Body Soak
This DIY idea is rather old but gold. Arranging candles around the tub and lighting incense to stimulate the senses where you spend some me time, is what we are talking about.

Rose is known for its properties for removing headaches, soothing the body and the relaxing the mind with invigorating fragrance.

Our hair suffers torture everyday because of pollution & sweat. While we clean our face 2-3 times a day, our hair is allowed a cleansing 2-3 times week.

Coconut oil is great for hair, which protects its denseness and richness whereas honey absorbs moisture well & helps the hair to retain the moisture.
Things Needed- 1-2 tsp of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of honey, 5 -6 drops of peppermint oil
Use it- Mix all the ingredients and apply it to damp hair. Keep the mask for 30 to 40 minutes before you shampoo.
