DIY Spa Treatments

While a spa day full of beauty treatments sounds like a heavenly way to spend an afternoon, it may not be the most economically savvy option for achieving perfect skin and hair (such a drag, we know). Instead, whip up some easy all-natural beauty products, made from ingredients you likely already have on the shelf.  From an avocado and coconut oil-based hair treatment to a sugar lip scrub that tastes as delicious as it smells, we’ve got you covered with products that actually work. Follow these simple and dorm-friendly recipes for a little weekend beauty bliss.
