Rejuvenating Spa Night

Everybody needs some time off from their dreary routine. A Spa Night is the perfect break!

However, not everyone can afford the services offered by luxury spas and salons. So, this event includes a night out right in your own community where residents can learn to make effective beauty and spa products using everyday ingredients from their own kitchens.

A spa night is the perfect event to help residents relax and enjoy themselves. This event brings together residents of all ages, to engage in a leisure activity of making a DIY beauty product, while they chatter and bond with other residents and staff in the community.

Set the Mood

It’s essential that residents both enjoy themselves and get time to relax during the activity. Therefore, setting up the spa mood is highly recommended. This could include soft music, incense or fragrant candles, and hot towels for the participants.

Share the secret recipes

Once the participants are settled, the recipe of the DIY beauty product can be shared. The product may be a scrub, masque, bath bombs etc. You can focus on just one recipe, or have ingredients to craft several recipes of various DIY beauty products.

One of my personal favorite DIY mud masque recipes is as follows:

Ingredients

  • Lemon Juice
  • Buttermilk
  • Honey
  • Cocoa
  • Greek Yougurt
  • Banana

Recipe

In a bowl, mix 3 tablespoons Greek yogurt. Add 1 teaspoon cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon buttermilk and 1/2 of a mashed banana. Add 1 teaspoon honey and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Beat all the ingredients with a fork until well combined. A blender may also be used to mix the ingredients into a thick paste. This recipe makes about 3 -5 face masks.

Directions

Residents should test the mask on a small part of the face to test for any allergic reactions. If allergy-free, residents can apply the mask over the while face and let it stay for about 20 – 30 minutes. Have residents rinse away the mask with cool water, followed by a splash of cold water to close up facial pores.

What I love about the recipe is that it is simple and made from everyday ingredients easily available at home. But the real magnificence of it is that it works like a charm!

***BONUS*** Beauty Editor gives a list of thirteen more scrumptious homemade facial masks and scrub recipes. These recipes can be given out to residents or saved to make the DIY spa night a recurring monthly event.

Getting to Work

Have the residents work in groups, where the ingredients are arranged on tables and ready to be combined. Be sure to have recipe cards and signage handy to avoid any confusions about how to make the products.

Once their products are made, residents can apply it right there, or may be given the option to use it at home at their convenience. Give small containers or zipper bags for residents to store their products for future use.

Storing the Product

It is essential to educate residents about proper storage of the beauty product made at home. If the product not stored appropriately, it may be dangerous or harmful to put a perished product on the skin.

Because DIY products are made without preservatives and other chemical stabilizers, they need to be used immediately. Therefore, DIY beauty products should always be stored in air-tight containers and refrigerated. Also, it is best not to use products with perishable ingredients after 3 days. 

***TIP*** Vitamin E can help preserve DIY beauty products. It may be added into the product by puncturing a Vitamin E gel pill.

***BONUS*** Grapefruit seed extract is another a great natural preservative. A few drops can be added to the DIY face mask to enhance its shelf life.
