Who doesn’t like to be pampered after a hard day’s work?  If you’re like me, I’ll take any chance I get in a day to enjoy simple pleasures like a morning mocha, some fresh-cut flowers from the farmer’s market or a mini facial from the local salon.

But what if you’re a little short on cash this week?  Don’t worry.  We’ve got you covered with a few simple do-it-yourself spa treatments:

Simple Citrus Facial


1 teaspoon lemon, grapefruit or orange juice

2 teaspoons honey

6 ounces yogurt (plain)

1/2 cup oatmeal


Blend all ingredients and apply directly to face.  Sit back and relax for a few moments until dry then rinse with warm water.

Apple Pie Skin Polish (from the Bachelor Gulch Spa)


2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 tablespoon fresh apple purée or apple sauce

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon


Mix all ingredients well.  In your bath or shower, apply mixture to skin in a circular motion, paying special attention to rough spots like elbows, knees or the soles of your feet.  Rinse off with warm water.

Papaya Skin Rejuvenation-Skin Refresher (from Nob Hill Spa in San Francisco)


Wash your face thoroughly with warm soapy water.  Then, bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Mash 1/2 of a papaya.  Place pot beneath your face and hold a towel over your head.  Steam face for 5-8 minutes.  Apply papaya mixture to face.  Lie down and relax for 5-10 minutes.  When you feel rested and rejuvenated, simply rinse mixture off face with warm water.
