Struggling to meet deadlines at work while trying to hold fort at home seldom leaves one with time for decadence. When making it to your gynecologist’s appointment, without having to cancel a couple of times becomes a challenge, taking time out to visit a spa or a beauty centre is a luxury only a very few can afford. Even though a busy lifestyle involves giving up on your personal priorities once in a while, you know the neglect has gone too far when you can’t even remember the last time you pampered your skin and senses. Beauty, after all, is skin deep and a product of painful personal grooming. So take time out this summer to groom yourself at home with these expert spa therapies with easy kitchen ingredients that will leave you rejuvenated and feeling like a million bucks without having to spend a penny.
Your feet cover a lot of ground. Literally. And, your hands are exposed to public view just as much as the face. It is only fair then that these parts of your body get attention too. Follow these simple therapies and put your best ‘ feet’ forward this summer.
Paraffin Wax Treatment
Take about 250 gm paraffin wax and melt it in a double boiler. Add few drops of your favourite aroma oil to it. Wash your feet and hands and apply a thin coat of the mixture, using a gauge. Leave on until it dries up. Once it starts cracking, remove the gauge.
Lemon and Salt Treatment
Take lukewarm water in a footbowl and add one teaspoon of salt to it. Add some petals of the flower of your choice for aroma. Scrub your feet clean with a slice of lemon and soak them in this water for 15 minutes. It will help remove negative energy from your body, making you feel fresh and rejuvenated.
