DIY Home Spa Treatments to Try

Here are some great DIY home spa day treatments to try on mom.

Honey Facial

Did you know that honey is a gentle, natural anti-bacterial? It makes a wonderful cleanser or nourishing mask.

Make sure your mother’s face is clean, and then apply one to two teaspoons of honey all over her face and leave it on for about ten minutes. Then moisten your fingertips and massage the skin in a circular motion to help exfoliate her skin. Let the honey rest for another five minutes and wash it off with a clean washcloth.

Use Cooling Cucumbers as a Tired Eye Treatment

Cucumbers are very refreshing, and if you’ve ever been to a spa, many give you cucumber water to sip while you wait. But cucumbers also make a great treatment for tired eyes, helping to reduce puffiness and dark circles.

DIY Moisturizing Hair Mask

You can help your mom’s dry, brittle hair with this DIY hair mask. It smells amazing and is all-natural but don’t use it if she has banana allergies.


             1 or 2 large bananas

             1 Egg

             2 Tbsp of honey

             2 Tbsp of coconut or olive oil softened

             ½ of a ripe avocado

This mask is easy to make. Simply mash all the ingredients together in a blender or bowl. Apply them to her hair and let it sit for 20 minutes, then rinse it out with warm water.

Banana, Yogurt, and Honey Face Mask

Similar to the recipe above, this face mask helps soften your skin. All you need is one ripe banana, honey, and some yogurt. Mash all the ingredients up and apply them to your mom’s face and let it sit. Then rinse it off with a warm washcloth.

Cucumber-Mint Sugar Body Scrub

This cooling mint and hydrating cucumber scrub helps soothe your skin and reduce inflammation while exfoliating it. The coconut oil in the scrub helps replenish moisture after the sugar exfoliates the dead skin. You can get the recipe for the scrub here.
