Cheap Spa treatments
- Soak feet in warm water with Epsom salt for 10-15 minutes.
- Mix 2 parts olive oil to 3 parts brown sugar to create the scrub.
- Rub into feet and rinse thoroughly.
- Apply your favorite body lotion or cream to feet. You can put on thick socks right away to really soak in the moisture!
- Essential oil (lavender works great!)
This soak is a traditional milk bath—Cleopatra did them all the time, allegedly, so the routine has stood the test of time. If you have a tub at your disposal, do not wait to try this relaxing, exfoliating soak. The lactic acid in the milk helps to slough off dead skin cells, and the lavender and honey soothe and smell great.
- Fill the tub with warm water as normal, adding a small amount of lavender essential oil and honey as you go (this helps the scent spread through the water).
- Mix in about 4 cups of milk. Use regular whole milk, or buttermilk if you’re feeling fancy.
- Be sure to do a quick rinse-off in the shower after!
Yep, that’s it. This simple conditioning treatment works better than high priced hair masks, and is so easy to do!
- Shampoo hair as usual in the shower.
- Towel dry hair, and apply 2-4 tablespoons of olive oil to damp hair (skip your roots if your hair tends to get greasy).
- Wrap your hair in a towel and leave on for 10-15 minutes.
- Hop in the shower again and rinse your hair thoroughly.
