DIY Spa Treatment

I received an email from a sweet lady about a month ago about promoting her product on my blog.  Below is her information.  It is basically a DIY Spa Treatment that you can do at home if you don't have time or funds to go to the spa.  It sounds kind of fun too!!  You can get pretty creative with it and it might be fun to do with your young kiddos.



Getting Red Carpet Skin Without Paying a Fortune

 
Berries and chocolate are an extremely popular combination among many people, and nearly everyone derives pleasure from a good spa treatment. Why not put them together just in time for an Oscars after party? Throw an at-home spa party by yourself or with your friends to get red carpet-worthy skin without the red carpet price tag.

Chocolate Strawberry Facial

Strawberries possess compounds that aid the proper balance of skin oils and help fight acne and other blemishes. The added honey will hydrate your skin, leaving it feeling smooth and supple.

What You'll Need:

1/2 cup of fresh, pureed strawberries

4 tablespoons of 100 percent cacao powder

3 tablespoons of raw honey

1 organic egg white

Thoroughly mix the ingredients into a bowl. If the mixture it too thin, add more cacao powder. If it's too thick, add another organic egg white. Prior to application, remove any makeup and cleanse your face. Using your fingers, apply the mask to your face in a thick layer. Sit back, relax and let the mask set for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water and follow it up with cold-water splash to re-shrink your pores.

Chocolate Nail Treatment

Body wraps, despite their name, can be used for isolated areas. Regardless of the scale of coverage, however, they're an excellent way to relax and they help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. This particular wrap is meant to be used on the feet and toes, but may also be done on the hands and fingers.

What You'll Need:

½ semisweet chocolate chips or baking chocolate

¼ cup organic cream

1 cup of fresh strawberries

5 tablespoons raw honey

A microwave

A blender

A paint brush

Put the chocolate into a small glass bowl and heat it in the microwave for two minutes or until the chocolate is melted. In the blender, add the berries, cream and honey. Blend them until they're smooth and mix them with the chocolate. While you're waiting for it to cool to a pleasant temperature, take the opportunity to wash and exfoliate your feet with a brush scrub or pumice stone. Once finished, use the paintbrush to apply the chocolate and strawberry mixture. For the next 15 minutes, feel free to relax with a glass of wine and some chocolate-dipped strawberries. Rinse your feet and pat them dry.

With their abundance of antioxidants and nutrients, chocolate and strawberries are good for more than just snacking. They provide a relatively cheap way to rejuvenate and nourish your skin to get celebrity-like glow we all saw at the Oscar’s on Sunday.

It's my opinion that a home foreclosure can have a major effect on the borrower's life.

Home foreclosures can have a 7 to 10 years negative impact on a applicant's credit report. Any borrower who have applied for a home loan or any kind of loans for instance, knows that the actual worse credit rating is definitely, the more tricky it is to acquire a decent mortgage loan. In addition, it may affect the borrower's capacity to find a
respectable place to lease or hire, if that gets the alternative property
solution. Thanks for your blog post.

Wow! This seems to be a very delicious spa treat! Haha! I have to make sure to try this at home! It’s not only effective for your skin, but it would definitely do wonders for my wallet as well. This would be very useful for other people who are always on the go and simply do not have the budget or the time to stop by a spa.
