Life can be stressful, and research shows that stress can wreak havoc on your metabolism. Once the stress hormone cortisol shows up, it becomes harder and harder to lose stubborn belly fat. What’s the best way to combat stress? Try pampering yourself with a spa day! And if you think self-care is out of your price range, think again. Spending money doesn’t have to be a barrier if you stay home and whip up these face masks, detox waters, and more.
Indulge with Hair and Face Masks
Whether you’re repairing dry, damaged hair or healing your skin, a hair and face mask can make you feel great. Most of our DIY recipes use common ingredients you probably have in the pantry. Some of them might surprise you! Don’t forget to give your dry lips a scrub and remove dead skin from your hands with a hand scrub, too. It’s important to exfoliate, especially if you live in a dry climate.
