1. Use chocolate as body wrap treatment. You can melt your own at home or order a kit online (http://www.chocolatebodywraps.info/). Chocolate has long been known to reduce wrinkles and cellulite by plumping out skin as well as softening. Indulge in this tasty treatment while taking a little nibble yourself.
2. Long gone are the days of our mothers putting cucumber slices over their eyelids. Today, people are using cucumbers as all-over body treatments. By cutting up about four to five cucumbers in slices and covering your entire body for approximately 10 to 20 minutes, you can create a natural astringent and cooling agent for your skin. Cucumber helps to hydrate and refresh. Use it after a long day at the beach on a sunburn or in the winter when your skin is the driest.
3. Toss out that expensive conditioner and go to your kitchen cabinet for the olive oil. It’s not just to sauté your vegetables. That’s right; olive oil is a natural way to replenish your hair’s moisture. Approximately once a week, apply a small amount of oil and massage throughout your hair and scalp. Tuck your hair under a shower cap and chill out for about an hour or so. Wash your hair with your regular shampoo and show off your shine all day long.
4. There are a number of scrubs for your body on the market. Many are expensive but contain no more than what you would find in your spice cabinet. Grab that box of sea salt and make a scrub with water. Muddle some fresh fruit into the mixture for added benefit such as citrus or mango. Scrub the mixture over your entire body and let it soak for about a half hour in your bathtub while catching up on your celebrity gossip. This is a great exfoliator and will leave your skin feeling supple and refreshed.
