Pamper yourself DIY Style!
Take some time to pamper yourself!
Gymnasts push their bodies to extremes when they are performing in competitions. Knowing when to push and when to step back is a challenge that most of us face every day, but for athletes, it is essential to recognize their limits. Today we are sharing two of our favorite DIY spa treatments to soothe and pamper you from head to toe #DIY SPA STYLE
Yogurt based face masks are a simple to mix and perfect for treating everyday skin issues. Yogurt contains natural anti-inflammatory properties and is an excellent treatment to help those who suffer from occasional acne breakouts. Strawberries contain natural salicylic acid properties which aid in the treatment and prevention pimples. Combined with the honey and lemon juice the mask brightens and tightens tired overworked skin.
1 cup plain organic yogurt
1/2 cup strawberries (mashed)
1 Tbsp. organic honey
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
Apply liberally to clean skin and leave on 15-30 minutes. Rinse with tepid water and gently pat dry.
Follow with moisturizer!
Pedicure: DIY pedicures are a great way to relax at home and save a few dollars.
Soak: Fill 6 to 8 Quarts of warm water in a foot spa or plastic dishpan adding 1/2 cup of Epsom Salt or 1/4 cup of Epson Salt liquid bath soak (we like Dr. Teal’s Pink Himalayan Salt Foaming Bath Soak) and soak feet for 15 minutes.
Scrub: Pat dry with a towel and rub feet with an exfoliating foot scrub. Mix 1/2 cup of Raw Sugar with 1/2 cup Olive oil, 1/4 cup Coconut oil, and 1 Tsp. of Tea Tree oil and rub feet to remove dead skin. Rinse feet and moisturize with cocoa, peppermint, or shea butter lotion (we like to add 2 to 3 drops of peppermint oil to cocoa butter). Rub olive oil on cuticles to soften.
Trim & File: Nails to the desired length and shape. Use an alcohol wipe to remove excess oil from nail beds.
Polish: Place toe separators or cotton between toes and paint with your favorite seasonal color (we like these silicone gel separators from Happy Toes and OPI’s Less is Norse from the Icelandic Collection).
