Aside from the skin and beauty benefits, you will find the ideas here helpful for stress relief and relaxation.
They also are particularly helpful at this time when most of us have been forced to stay at home to protect our health.
To have a great spa day at home, start by setting the mood with calming and relaxing music. One of the main reasons we go to the spa is for relaxation.
Playing the right music will help simulate a calming atmosphere for you to feel relaxed.
Scented candles are great for simulating a spa like atmosphere at home. Candles come in different scents, choose the scents that appeal to you and that will help you feel relaxed.
Aromatherapy is a great tool to use for your spa day at home. Some essential oils can help relieve stress and anxiety, helping you to relax.
Light your candles or diffuse your essential oils, turn on the music and before you know it, you have already turned your bathroom into a mini spa.

Here are some of the DIY face masks you can use

Not only does dry brushing exfoliates the skin, making it smoother, softer and brighter, but it can also boost circulation and improve lymphatic drainage as well as help reduce cellulite.
Exfoliate and polish your skin with body scrubs such as this coffee body scrub, or the following if you want to focus on cellulite prone areas:
Mix the essential oil in with the melted and cooled extra virgin coconut oil. Then blend all the ingredients together. Store in airtight container.
Massage a large amount, using a circular motion, to your more cellulite prone areas (hips, thighs and bottom). Allow to sit on skin for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse with mild soap and warm water. (I advise doing in the shower as it can be very messy!)
I really love this emulsified sugar scrub because not only does it exfoliate, but it also moisturizes the skin as it turns into lotion when washed off.
