Self care Sunday is the perfect opportunity for an at home spa day using common ingredients you already have at home. The beauty of these Self Care Sunday DIY spa day recipes is that they're designed to help you not only take care of your body, but also refresh your mind by getting you off electronics and away from your to do list.
If you joined our Self Care September 30 Day Challenge then mark day 3 (epsom salt bath) and day 20 (at home face mask) off your list! If you haven't started yet, start today and tag us on Instagram on your 30 day self care journey so we can share your progress with the community.
Feeling selfish for doing self care? This is your reminder that self care isn't selfish. It has been scientifically proven that self care isn't selfish and it's actually as important to take care of ourselves, as it is to take care of our families and communities.
Check out the recipes below to have an easy at home self care Sunday spa day and let us know on Instagram @fredandfar how you like them.
DIY AVOCADO HONEY
YOGURT FACE MASK
Mash avocado, and mix all of the ingredients together until smooth. Brush the mask on your face and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water. Each of these ingredients plays a special role in this face mask: avocado moisturizes and heals acne, honey is an anti-oxidant that reduces inflammation, and yogurt restores the natural skin barrier, brightens, and gives you an unmistakable glow. Pro tip? Make some extra for a smoothie.
DIY EGG WHITE HAIR MASK
FOR VOLUME + SHINE
Beat eggs until frothy and add lemon juice. Apply to hair and scalp evenly. Cover with a shower cap and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse with COLD water (prevents the egg from clumping). Shampoo and condition for luscious hair. Sure, the thought of putting eggs in your hair may give you pause, but the results will turn you into a believer. Lemon kills the scent, so not to worry. Even after one egg white hair mask treatment you'll notice your hair is shinier.
DIY COFFEE BODY SCRUB
Mix ingredients together until they're evenly distributed. Gently rub the mixture all over your body. Leave on for a few minutes and then rinse off. Coffee is a great, natural exfoliator because it promotes exfoliation and is an antioxidant, which is key for healthy, youthful skin.
EPSOM SALT BATH
Pour one cup of epsom salt into a warm bath along with a few drops of your favorite essential oil for a rejuvinating, aromatic bath. Contrary to its name, epsom salt isn't actually salt at all: its magnesium sulfate. Magnesium plays an essential role in relaxing your muscles, reducing stress, boosting serotonin, alleviating headaches, and promoting sleep, which is why an Epsom salt bath before bed is so effective. All it takes is 15 minutes for you to feel the benefits.
