DIY Spa Day Routine

DIY Spa Day Routine

This week is a longer video because I’m jamming so many (actually awesome) DIY spa/pamper ideas PLUS my DIY facial. Everything you need is listed and linked below this description! I am a huge fan of treating yourself but I also am not one that likes to socialize when I want to chill 🙈. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good spa but I love being at home more. I wanted to show you guys how I pamper myself including the honey facial all my ladies inquire about when I post it on my Instagram (feel free to follow me @rachel_metz and see my obsession with my dog if you want). There are so many different DIY spa day routines out there, what works for you? Let me know if you guys want to see more of this! I have so much in the works but what matters most is what you want so leave me a comment below. Happy Wednesday, stay rad 🤘.

Muscle soak
OG creator Heidi from Happiness is Homemade
1 1/2 cup epsom salt
1/2 cup coarse sea salt/pink Himalayan salt
1/2 cup baking soda
6-8 drops essential oil (totally optional)
Soap coloring (totally optional)

Sugar cookie lip scrub
OG creator Katie from Wellness Mama
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon sweet almond oil
1 tablespoon organic cane sugar – make sure it’s a finer sugar! Not the RAW kind I got.
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon raw honey

Milk honey bath melts
OG creator Bren Did and you can too
1/3 cup rich mango butter (totally wish I got it but I used cocoa butter)
1/3 cup sweet almond oil
1 cup organic powdered milk
1/4 cup “luxurious” honey but I used raw
1/2 cup organic powdered milk for rolling them in

Coffee massage bar
OG creator the Make Up Dummy 👈 clearly obsessing with her right now
6 tablespoons cocoa butter
1 tablespoon shea butter
1 tablespoon coffee-infused oil but I just substituted Sweet Almond oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
A handful of coffee beans
1 teaspoon vitamin E oil but I just substituted Jojoba oil

Honey, lemon, baking soda facial
Baking soda
Apple Cider Vinegar for toner
Rose water spray (totally optional)
Coconut oil or whatever your choice for moisturizer

Everyone’s skin responds different but this is what works for me. I do this facial every four days! This facial works for brightening and moisturizing the skin while helping reducing blemishes. Honey for , lemon for and baking soda for . I use Apple Cider Vinegar for my toner ONLY when I do this facial but normally I use Witch Hazel as my daily toner. Coconut oil doesn’t work for everyone (it’s a trial & error kind of deal) but my skin LOVES it.

  1. Please don’t put baking soda or lemon on your face! Those are both much too harsh… The pH of both are so bad for your skin.

  2. For the lip scrub you don’t need all THAT just use sugar and olive oil or any oil. Works just fine without all THAT.

  3. This said diy, the only thing diy was the drink
    Edit: wrong video, I actually really enjoyed this video! honestly it’s probably the best one out of all the ones I watched!❤️

  4. I tried the ACD and could not tolerate the smell. I use fragrance free organic witch hazel toner.

  5. Don’t put lemon juice and baking soda on your skin… its SO bad for your moisture barrier and can lead to worsened acne.

  6. DO NOT use lemon on your face !! you can replace the lemon with coconut oil or almond oil! do not use anything with acid please! 🙂

  7. Just so you know baking soda is not meant for your face… it can remove the skin’s protective oil barrier, alter its pH, and disrupt the natural bacteria on the surface which helps to prevent infection and acne. And lemon juice is to acidity for your face which also leads to disrupting your pH level and causing breakouts.

  8. Dont put apple cider vinegar, baking soda, or lemon on your face. Even if it seems like its helping for now it’s super damaging and you’ll notice in the long run

  9. This video is nice but oh my god please don’t use lemon, baking soda, apple cider vinegar and coconut oil on your face. Lemon is photosensitive and very acidic, baking soda is quite basic (in terms of pH) and there is a reason people use it as a DIY detergent ingredient. Apple cider vinegar is also very acidic (ethanoic acid) and should only be used when its very diluted down and coconut oil is also comedogenic (blocks pores).

    Try things like making an oatmeal mask which doubles as a scrub and has hydrating properties, also witch hazel and rose water make for good toners too. Shea butter is also a good alternative to coconut oil on the face since its non-comedogenic.
