The Home Health & Beauty Hacks That Save A Trip To The Salon

As mamas and women, we can spend a fortune on trips to the beauty salon and spa in our lifetime. But, beauty often comes at a price. If we want to look and feel our best, we have to invest, right? Wrong! You can actually look and feel great for next to nothing - especially when you do it yourself. You might love the spa ambiance or the feeling of being pampered at the salon, but you could save yourself the expense by trying out some of these handy home health hacks.

Green Tea & Cucumber. If you find yourself waking most morning with sore, puffy and tired eyes, you can often feel like you’re stuck with them. However, there are plenty of home remedies that can help you out, get rid of the dark circles and make you look at lot more awake. First up, try cucumber. Cucumbers are super healing and contain a lot of moisture that can reduce puffiness when applied over the eyes. Next, green tea. Green tea is full of antioxidants. Dunk two teabags in boiling water and leave them to cool in the fridge. Then apply over the eye area for puffiness reduction.

Body Brushing. If you’ve always wanted to improve the appearance of your skin, but you always felt that it required regular spa visits, you’ll be glad to know that you can get a similar effect by body brushing. Using a dry, soft bristles brush and moving it in circular motions across your limbs and towards the heart, you’re going to not only improve circulation but the appearance of cellulite too. This is because body brushing boosts lymphatic drainage, the process that eliminates toxins from the body.

Coconut Oil. Coconut oil is a great natural remedy that you can use for multiple purposes. If you’ve ever wondered how to get rid of stretch marks, coconut oil is just one of the things you can try. It’s highly moisturizing and nourishing, meaning you get to heal your skin in the best possible way. But, it’s also excellent as a leave-in hair mask too. So if you want super smooth and silky hair, try a coconut oil mask and enjoy the effects.

Salt. Spas always make you feel amazing when you get a body exfoliation treatment. So much so, you can wish that you had that same feeling everywhere. With salt, you can. Sea salt is a really great natural product to exfoliate with. You don’t even have to invest in the organic products to get it done either, simply pick up some sea salt at your local store, get in the shower, and scrub away before showing off the residue.

Charcoal. Having a facial can largely improve the look and feel of your skin, so why not do it at home? If you want to give your skin a deep clean, use charcoal. There is a range of safe and gentle homemade charcoal mask ideas that can clear your pores, zap away zits, and give you a flawless complexion in no time at all.
