At Home Spa -- Natural Beauty Tips

Updated on October 8, 2014

Use Natural Beauty Tips to Save Money

We all like to pamper ourselves, but you can do an at home facial using cheap beauty products that you probably already have. Save money and try these natural beauty tips before spending money on high priced salon products.

These simple but cheap beauty products are a way to stop buying expensive things. Give yourself an afternoon of pampering in your own at home spa. I've even added a recipe for making oatmeal salt bath soak, which is great to use and makes a great inexpensive gift too!

Uses for Olive Oil That Might Surprise You

Olive oil can turn rancid and when it does, instead of tossing it because the flavor is off, use it in a variety of ways. This article provides natural beauty tips that can turn this expensive oil into a way to have your own at home spa experience.

Make Your Own Oatmeal Salt Bath Soak

It's all natural!

This bath soak is soothing and all natural and so easy to make.

You'll need:

1 cup ground oats (use the blender to grind them super fine)

1 cup salt (epsom salt, kosher salt, sea salt all work)

1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil (optional, use it if you have it; I buy small bottles at the dollar store)

1 teaspoon essential oil (peppermint or whatever scent you like)

Mix all the ingredients of the oatmeal salt bath soak thoroughly in a bowl. Store in a glass jar. Add a few tablespoons to a hot bath for a relaxing soak.

Cheap Gift Alert!

This makes a great gift too. Save small glass jars, remove the labels, and clean them. Store them with the lids off till you want to use them so any odors can dissipate. Pour the bath soak in a jar and tie a ribbon around the top. Add a decorative spoon or an old silver spoon too, if you want, to scoop out just the right amount.

Take a Spa Break - at home

This is a great way to refresh your skin and save money. Buy a facial peel or mud pack and give yourself numerous facials for a fraction of what it would cost at the spa.

Give Yourself an At Home Facial - I like the Freeman products!

      Argan oil - works wonders on lines, dry skin and even hair - now being added to all kinds of products, and also benefits the women's co-operatives who produce it in Morocco!

      I'm interested in that oatmeal salt bath. I learned to appreciated the goodness of using oats to bath with when it turned out to be the only thing that helped my daughters skin when she was a baby.

      So many people use jojoba oil, but I find olive oil to work just as well as an essential oil carrier and massage oil. It's also much less expensive!

      I also use coconut oil and like that it solidifies when the room is cool enough. This making it easier to rub on. (It's usually liquid in my hot kitchen)

      @gottaloveit2: I had no idea about coconut oil either. One of these days I'll add that comment to my lens.

      Glad I dropped by to see the coconut oil comment - I have a boatload of the stuff and never know what to do with it.

      @lollyj lm: I have a sensitive nose/palate, I guess. My oil sometimes turns, and if so, I save it for home spa moisturizing.

      I do have a natural beauty tip to share. :-) Coconut oil. Organic virgin coconut oil is amazing. It is expensive but lasts a long time. It is well noted for it's health benefits when taken internally, but it's a fantastic moisturizer and massage lubricant. Yes, a lens on the topic is forthcoming ! :-)

      Great tips. Our olive oil never lasts long enough to expire, but we might just have to get an extra bottle to keep on hand for all these helpful tips.

      Some great resource links here for how to use olive oil. With the amount we go through over here though, it never expires! Nicely done lens,

      Great tip. I have been known to cut open lotion bottles if possible to get it all out.

      If my hand lotion gets too thick from sitting around, I put a little baby oil in it and shake it up. Then it spreads easily.
