Spa Weekend Breaks: DIY Spa Ideas Part 1

Treat you and your girlfriends right by giving yourselves the gift of a spa weekend.  If money is tight, then host a girl getaway in your home.  Send the guys off on a hunting, fishing or on a golfing excursion.  Send the kids to the sitter’s or a friend’s house for the weekend.  It’s time to relax and indulge.  This post is a two-part series for DIY spa weekend breaks.

Talk to your girlfriends in advance to find out what their skin type is before you make up these home-made beauty treatments. Also, have others in the group come up with their own specific spa specialty, like nails, body treatments, dinner, or drinks.

Here are some recipes you can use to create facial masks.

Dry Skin
Frozen Egg & Honey Mask.

Ingredients:
1 egg
1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon of honey

Beat egg in a bowl, until it is well-mixed. Then slowly add coconut oil and honey.  The consistency should resemble mayonnaise.
Using an empty toilet tissue roll.  Spoon the mixture into the roll.  Freeze over night in a bowl.

When ready to use, peel away 1/4 inch of the roll and roll the stick over your face.  Leave the mask on for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water.

Oily Skin
Avocado Oily Skin Mask

Combine egg white, teaspoon of lemon juice and a mashed pulp of half an avocado into a blender.  Blend for a few seconds.  Wash face first before applying.  Leave mask on for 20 minutes then rinse off with warm water.  Follow up by applying astringent.

While you and your girlfriends are waiting for the masks to dry. Set cucumber slices on your eyes, this will help soothe tired, puffy eyes.

Hosting a spa weekend break is the perfect gift to give you and your friends.  Spa weekends can be expensive if you have tobook them, so send the men and kids off packing for the weekend to treat yourselves right without breaking the bank. Depending on the personalities of your friends, you can have a healthy dinner and “splurge” on having an exquisite salad and served with wine. Stay up talking and give each other manicures and pedicures after your facials. Just enjoy the time together and pamper your body, mind, and spirit at the same time. When Monday rolls around, you may just be ready for another few weeks of family and work!
