6 Easy At-Home Spa Treatments

Wouldn't we all just love to spend a day at the spa? Completely relax, unwind and emerge looking radiant and feeling rejuvenated. Unfortunately, spa days aren't usually in the cards -- financially or time-wise -- but there are some pretty simple treatments that can just as easily be done at home.

Pinterest is flooded with DIY beauty treatments, and we just had to try some. We’ve compiled 6 of the best and easiest spa remedies that you can do right at home. The best part is most of these ingredients are already in your cabinet. With the help of some produce, oils, eggs and sugar, you can create all-natural beauty treatments that will leave you looking beautiful without breaking the bank.

So take time today for yourself and relax, even if you don’t have a major event coming up. Light some candles, turn on some soothing music and turn your home into a spa. You can even pour yourself a cocktail – we won’t judge.
