Not always do you have to run to the nearest spa or beauty parlor each time you feel you need some beauty therapy. A lot can be from some simple ingredients at home. This way you can pamper yourself whenever you feel like without feeling too guilty about how much you spend on it.

Once a week is how many times you need to exfoliate your skin. Rather than invest in a very expensive face scrub, dig into your stash of sea salt. Wet your face or any part of your body and gently rub in the sea salt. Make sure to avoid your eyes and concentrate on your T-zone. Once done, make sure to rinse off with cold water so as to tighten your pores.

Want a lip gloss that no one else has? All you need is two tablespoons of solid shortening, a tablespoon of your favorite powdered flavored drink and a film container. Mix the shortening and the drink powder and microwave it till it is smooth. Then cook it on high in the microwave till it turns to liquid. Pour it into the container and refrigerate it and voila, you have a fantastic lip gloss.

All of us tend to get dark circles at one point or the other. While cucumbers and tea bags can help, here is another trick you can use. Grate a potato and wrap it up in cheesecloth. Place this on your eyes for around 20 minutes and then gently wipe of any residue. Follow this up with an eye cream of your choice.

There are also a wide variety of face masks you can make depending on your kind of skin. For dry skin, mix a tablespoon of olive oil with two tablespoons of fresh cream. Leave this on for around half hour and rinse off with warm water.

For oily skin, extract some fresh juice from any fruit you have at home oranges, limes, papayas and just place this on your face. This acts as a regular cleanser and also stimulates blood flow to your face.

Many tend to ignore their feet. If you want smooth feet, take a cup of lemon juice, a dash of cinnamon for the sweet smell, two tablespoons of olive oil, a quarter cup milk and some water. Mix them together and wash your feet in this. You will be amazed at how wonderful your feet will feel.
