At Home Spa Treatments

Picture from
During these harsh winter months we all want to take good care of our skin and hair, but even though frequent trips to the spa may not be reasonable, especially if you're on budget, it doesn't mean you can't pamper yourself. These three easy home treatments will do wonders for your entire body. I am a huge fan of coconut oil and have been using it on my hair and skin (and even in my cooking) for almost year now! (Check the previous post here) I hope these remedies help you and your skin get through the winter!

Revive tired hair, body and lips
Coconut oil is an essential product to nurture dry hair or sun-damaged skin.  It's loaded with Vitamin E and fatty acids which are anti-fungal, anti-oxidizing and anti-bacterial--melt a teaspoon and add to conditioner to revive brittle hair. You can also mix a tablespoon of coconut oil with sugar to create a refreshing body scrub, sloughing off old summer skin.  We also recommend using it on lips in the place lip balm, it’s a yummy way to help lips from cracking.

Anti-aging with Avocado
Avocado oil is rich in healing vitamins B, C, D, E, K.  Studies have shown that it increases the amount of collagen in skin, translation--it helps skin from aging. Other benefits include repairing sun damage and fighting age spots. We recommend using La Tourangelle’s Avocado Oil from head-to-toe, before jumping in the shower rub the oil into your skin and let sit for 60 seconds before washing off.

Bye Bye Acne
Sunflower oil is also rich in vitamins A, C and D and healthy carotenoids and waxes which form a protective barrier on the skin. Thus, this oil is effective in the treatment of acne. Being exceptionally light and non-greasy, it's non-comedogenic and can be rubbed into your skin without generating pimples or spots.
