Beauty Treatments, Natural, Homemade and Spa Treatments

Updated on March 23, 2012

Since the time people started to pay attention to their outlook, different beauty treatments were in use. Honey, cucumber, olive oil, coconut oil etc. are being used since the ancient times. As the society progressed, people found many items that can help keep the skin and hair look healthy and beautiful.

With the advancement of science, different cosmetics were invented and many new advanced skin and hair care treatments emerged. Spas and salons become popular among men and women. However, as some ingredients used in making different cosmetics were found to be harmful to health, natural beauty treatments are becoming the first choice these days.

What is a beauty treatment?

Beauty treatments are recipes made of natural or cosmetic ingredients for keeping a beautiful and healthy outlook. Whenever we apply some natural or cosmetic beauty ingredients to our skin, nail or hair it can be considered a beauty treatment. Spas and salons offer advanced treatments whereas homemade beauty treatments are quite popular among women for the simplicity and ease of use.

Natural beauty treatments

Natural beauty treatments consist of only natural ingredients. Different parts of plants, vegetables and fruits are usually the key ingredients of natural treatment recipes. Most recipes require a paste of different items or a liquid solution that is then applied on face, skin or hair and can be kept for 10 minutes to several hours before washing. Commonly used items are,

Olive oil, Almond oil, Sunflower oil, Egg yolk, Cucumber, Coconut oil, Rose petals, Milk, Honey, Avocado, Lemon, Tea, Orange, Turmeric, Yogurt, Apple, Banana, Papaya, Witch hazel, Strawberry, Basil leaves, Apple-Cider Vinegar, Beer, and Clay.

Natural beauty treatments are usually prepared at home, however, most spas and salons now offer advanced treatments consisting only of natural ingredients or cosmetics made of natural items.

Homemade beauty treatments

Homemade beauty treatments are prepared using natural ingredients. Almost all items used for homemade beauty recipes are common food items usually present in the kitchen cupboard and refrigerator. Some of the homemade beauty treatment recipes are present since the ancient times. Based on recent scientific discoveries, some new recipes are prepared. These treatments can help fight dandruff, dry skin, acne and other common skin and hair problems. These are also known to be effective against aging signs on face and skin.

Spa Beauty Treatments

Spas offer some advanced beauty treatments as well as simple natural treatments. Different types of facials, manicure & pedicure, etc. are popular spa treatments. Laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion etc. are some advanced spa beauty treatments used to remove aging signs.

Precautions before using any Beauty Treatment

People allergic to a particular fruit or vegetable should not use that in beauty recipes as it can cause the same allergic reaction when applied to skin as when eaten. Beauty treatments alone won’t make a big difference in overall outlook. A healthy diet and usual skin and hair care is necessary.

Beauty treatment recipes should be made of fresh ingredients and used instantly. The mixture can be stored in a cool dry place (ex. refrigerator) but Storing for a long period of time is not a good option. Preparing small amounts only for one time application is recommended. Wash the hands before applying to avoid bacteria spreading.

Beauty Treatments since the ancient times are helping people keep their skin and hair healthy and youthful. They are pretty simple to prepare with natural items easily available in the local market. Homemade beauty treatments are cheap but effective and hardly have any side effects. Different beauty treatments are available for different skin type (oily, dry or normal). Advanced treatments can be obtained from nearby spa or salon. Regular application of natural homemade treatments will however reduce the need for advanced treatments and keep the skin youthful for a long time.
