Why Salons and Spas are Not a Necessity

There was a time, where for every occasion we had, be it a birthday party, graduation, or wedding, hours before the event, everyone we know would be getting dolled up at the nearest salon. But with today’s new equipment and technology, many people don’t find the need to run to a salon each time they have an important occasion or to a spa, when they feel like getting pampered. Let me enlighten you on how we can provide ourselves with the same services without having to spend as much money and in the comfort of your own home.

Facials, Body Scrubs and Tans

In this day and age you can find and buy almost anything online. There are several different types of “face masks” available for people to purchase and get the same facial treatment they’d get at any spa. Clay masks, moisturizing masks, anti-acne masks and skin brightening masks, are some of them to name a few. Then we have body scrubs that can be quite expensive at spas. An alternate method would be to draw a soothing bath at home, let your body soak in it and then do some scrubbing of you own, making sure to apply body lotion or body oil right after to lock in the moisture, making your skin very soft and happy. Most of the people want beautiful bronze skin, and when the sun is not of much help, they turn to salons and there tanning booths, but there is another alternative that is quite famous and is done at home. Self tan, it is the application of chemicals to the skin to similar appearance to a suntan, and this is also a less risky method than using a tanning booth.


Manicures and Pedicures

Not going to lie, having your hands and feet rubbed by a professional feels amazing, but it is quite possible to get this done at home, by simply soaking your feet in a tub of warm water which includes an oil with a calming and nice fragrant, and the slough off the dead skin, then it’s time to trim your toenails, buff them, and push back your cuticles. Now there’s nothing left to do but add your choice of nail polish and keep your toes to dry. Manicures can be tricky unlike pedicures, they take some practice and I wouldn’t recommend doing your own acrylic nails, as it can get very complicated, but with the help of a few videos and trying it out yourself a couple of times you should be able to get the hang of it.


Makeup and Hair Dos

This is particularly one of the main reasons why people visit salons. Makeup has become an obsession for many and why wouldn’t it? There are so many different products and brands to choose from. But the availability of the products is not the reason many go to salons; it’s to get the professionals to do perfect make up on you.
