DIY At-Home Spa

Treat yourself to an at-home spa day with our 3 DIY Spa Secrets using ingredients you probably have in your fridge:

  1. To temporarily reduce puffiness and dark circles in your eyes try using cooled, cucumbers slices on your eyes. Cucumbers are abundant in antioxidants and silica which helps in slowly fading dark circles.
  2. Set the mood with scents. Feeling Stressed? Reach for aromas of bergamot, chamomile, rose, or frankincense. Need a pick-me-up? Citrus oils, ginger, vanilla, and rosemary are your friends!
  3. Cucumber slices are great for reducing swelling, but you can also use tea bags. Chamomile is a natural anti-inflammatory and will ease redness and puffiness. Steep in just-boiled water for a few minutes, cool in the fridge and then place one bag over each eye for 15 minutes.
