While spa visits offer you tons of benefits, we cannot deny the fact that it’s quite expensive. So if you’re tightening your budget or just wish to try some DIY spa treatments, this article is for you.
With all the skin care products a available in the market, at-home spa treatments are easy to do. However, don’t expect the results to be as good as the ones you can get at a spa in Singapore. But the good news is that these at-home treatments can still keep you looking and feeling good when you just don’t have the time or money to visit a spa.
A quick online search or visit to a local market can instantly help you find essential oils and essential oil diffusers you can use for aromatherapy. Another option is to soak in a tub with DIY aromatherapy treatments. To make an aromatherapy bath salt, you will need one-part sea salt, one part Epsom salts, two parts baking soda. Combine all ingredients, and add two to three drops of your preferred essential oil scents. Some of the common oils for this mixture are chamomile, lavender, and vanilla. Once done, mix the bath treatment in a tub with water and then soak in the tub for as long as you wish.
Pedicures and Manicures
Pedicures and manicures are easy to do at home. What’s more, they provide you with a meditative experience. Get that old nail polish off, and trim your nails to just a bit longer than your preferred length. Then file them into the shape you would like. Soak your hands in warm water for ten minutes before applying a cuticle oil and pushing your cuticles back. Exfoliate your hands, apply a little moisturizer, and get ready to put on polish. Your hands will be looking great at a fraction of the cost.
If you don’t have the time to go to a spa in Singapore but really needs a quick getaway from stress, you can actually give yourself a relaxing massage. And no, there’s no need to ask someone else to do it. You can give yourself a soothing massage that will help you feel more relaxed. You can begin at the base of your head using your left hand to massage your right side. After this, you can work your way down, and then switch to the other side. Although nothing beats a good spa massage, this will do the trick until you reach the weekend and finally have the time to get a proper massage.
You can do a steam facial at the comfort of your home, without having to spend so much on products. Start by boiling water, and then let it sit for a few seconds before steeping herbs or adding essential oils in the water. Some of the best herbs used for a steam facial are green tea, peppermint, and lavender. Make sure the water is hot enough to give you a good five minutes of steam. After steeping the herbs, hold your face over the steaming water and then drape a towel over your head. This will keep the steam in and the heat will open up your pores for deep cleaning. Once done, wash your face before using any kind of facial products or facial treatment.
While these treatments are easy to do and affordable, nothing beats a relaxing treatment at a Spa in Singapore. If you need one, be sure to visit Grand Spa. Check out their website for more details about their services.
