Can't step out? Opt for these DIY beauty treatments at home

The coronavirus pandemic has shaken the world and has made things go awry in hardly any time. Thankfully, most organisations have made the sensible decision to let their employees work from home so that social distancing can be followed. However, being stuck at home can become a whole new task in itself. After you're done with your work, what else are you possibly going to do? Well, that's why instead of just sitting around, you can indulge in some much-needed pampering session. Here are some DIY beauty treatments you can opt for if you're stuck at home.

Start with cleaning your face with cotton pads and micellar water. Then, use a gentle cleanser on your face. Follow this up with a scrub to get rid of dead skin cells and grime. Use a steamer to steam your face (gently, don't get burned) and then use your blackhead remover to get rid of dirt and grime from your pores. The last step is to slap on a sheet mask and let it do its magic. Once you're done, moisturise your face and you'll see just how gorgeous your skin looks.

For this one, you'll need 2 Eggs, Vitamin e tablets, Curd, A bowl, One whole lemon (juice) and Two drops of essential oil of your choice (depending on your hair issue like tea tree oil for dandruff). Mix all these ingredients well and make a thick consistent paste. Apply it to your hair and let it sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing with shampoo and conditioner.

Yes, now you can get that salon-like experience, right at home! For this, you'll need 1 cup white granulated sugar, 1 tbsp. lemon juice and 1/4 cup honey. Mix these ingredients in a pan and heat them until they form a thick, sticky paste. Then put some talcum powder on the areas that need to be waxed, get those wax strips and a spatula and start waxing!

DIY manicures and pedicures

There isn't anything as relaxing as getting a manicure and pedicure done. They're both essentially done the same way using the same tools. Let's start with the pedicure. Dip your feet in a tub of lukewarm water that also contains a tsp of Epsom salt, 2-3 drops of body wash and 2-3 drops of any essential oil. Leave them in for 5 minutes and then pull them out, take off any pre-existing nail polish, use a cuticle cutter to get rid of dead skin, file your nails and use some pumice stone on your feet. Then dip your feet back into the water for another five minutes, pull them out, let them air dry, moisturise and put on two coats of your favourite nail paint! Do the same for your manicure.
