Want to try your hand at making some spa treatments at home? I found this website, SpaIndex.com, with an extensive Home Spa section full of recipes for everything from a Chocolate Facial Mask to Kiwi Astringent for Oily Skin. (Hey, the kiwi astringent includes vodka as an ingredient. What’s not to love?)
The spa treatments aren’t just for the ladies, though. Try making your own Peppermint After Shave from peppermint tea bags.
I haven’t tried any of the recipes yet, but if you do, leave a comment and let us know how it turned out! I’d love to cook up some Cranberry Honey Lip Gloss and Rosemary Honey Olive Oil Hair Conditioner.
Chocolate Facial Mask
This decadent mask is actually an excellent moisturizer — it leaves your skin baby soft. Recommended for normal skin.
1/3 cup cocoa powder
3 tbsp. heavy cream
2 tsp. cottage cheese
¼ cup honey
3 tsp. oatmeal
Mix all ingredients together (a bullet blender is ideal) and smooth onto face. Relax for ten 10 minutes, then wash off with warm water.
