Today I will be discussing some awesome techniques aka DIY's to make things simpler for yourself! I would recommend adding this to your weekly or monthly regimen of pampering! Now we all work very hard, whether your are sitting, or standing around all day, and we all need to treat our selves o I'm going to share 3 DIY's for you!
First, why not make yourself a lovely foot soak? I personally have not tried this yet, but I will be making this awesome Lime Mint Foot Soak by Tidy Mom. We all know what a pain in the butt it is to b on your feet all day, so treat yourself or a loved one to a wonderful soak.
What you'll need is 2 cups of epsom salt mixed with 1/2 cup of baking soda and zest of one lime in a large bowl add 3-4 drops of Peppermint essential oil. With a wooden spoon mix thoroughly, then pour the mixture into a mason jar or a bag. Make sure you use within a few weeks. Have it stored in a cool dark place, like the refrigerator if using zest. If you want to have it last longer omit the zest.
Benefits of this soak:
Epsom Salt will sooth aches, eliminate smells and soften up rough skin.
Baking Soda is good for exfoliating, leaving your skin soft and smooth.
Lime is routinely used for its energizing fresh and cheerful aroma. Also known in folklore for its ability to cleanse, purify and renew the spirit and mind.
Peppermint is uplifting, the menthol induces a cooling sensation allowing your body to cool down and ease tension headaches and pains.
Next is this oh so luscious Wrinkle Smoothing Wine Facial! Here's a lovely DIY I found from Real Simple. I don't know about you but sometime's I don't pay enough attention to my face, when everyone really should wrinkles or not. This facial is going to feel amazing and help your skin.
What you're gonna need is 1/4 of a cup of Wine, 1/4 cup of kaolin clay, 2 tablespoons of grape seed oil, and 1 tablespoon of organic oat flour, Combine all the ingredients, and then apply to your face, neck and decolletage. Leave on for about 10-15 minuets then rinse off with warm water.
The benefits and how it works Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant found primarily in red wine but also in smaller amounts in white, may help to repair the damage caused by sun exposure that can lead to wrinkles and sagging, according to a growing body of scientific research. Kaolin clay draws out impurities, while the grape seed oil moisturizes and hydrates and the oat flour gently exfoliates.
