Top 10 recipes for home beauty
We all want to feel and look beautiful but unfortunately we can’t all afford expensive treatments. I mean really have you seen the prices for a day at the spa, they can literally charge you an arm and a leg to do what you can do at home for a fraction of the price. Everything from the seaweed wraps to the mud masks can be done made and done at home. Most of the spa treatment recipes are made from organic materials that cost pennies. So I thought I would put together a few simple and cheap treatment recipes so you can save you hard earned money during this recession and have a spa day at home.
