Summertime is by far one of the harshest seasons when it comes to beauty! Cute cuts and hot weather can prove really tricky when spending time near the pool, beach or lake. This can ultimately give our skin and hair a beating. Being a spa enthusiast, I figured…who better to give my lovely readers some chic DIY tricks than Josie Feria, Director of Spa Operations at Lapis Spa at the Fontainebleau? These tips are replicates of spa treatments provided by Lapis — designed to whip our skin, hair, and hands back into tip-top shape.

DIY Treatment For Healthy Hair:

  • Take lemon juice and warm green tea and mix mixture; apply mixture to scalp with brush or applicator as you separate hair and pour remaining amount through hair
  • Allow mixture to remain on scalp for a few minutes- the tea and lemon work as an astringent to cleanse scalp and hair follicles
  • Rinse thoroughly with warm water and apply a combination of plain yogurt and avocado –mix 2 parts fresh avocado and 2 parts yogurt and massage into the hair in circular motions to relax the scalp and stimulate hair growth
  • Gently massage temples and base of scalp line.  Place plastic shower cap on hair and wrap in warm towel for 10 minutes or until towel cools off

DIY Treatment For A Touchable Face:

  • Prepare pot of boiling water with several bags of chamomile tea – allow tea to steep and release benefits into water
  • Place face over steaming pot and cover head with a towel to trap steam.  You are stimulating the benefits of a steam room.
  • Place cucumbers or icy chamomile tea bags well squeezed – on eyes to reduce puffiness
  • Dab off excess moisture and apply scrub cream to face in gentle circular and upward motions to face, neck and chest.  Place emphasis on beard and neck to help lift any ingrown facial hairs
  • Rinse thoroughly with warm moist washcloth and apply witch hazel or rose or lavender water with spray or cotton pad
  • Apply moisture lotion or cream in upward, relaxing massage strokes placing slight pressure on temples and under forehead bridge line to release tension and ease pain
  • Instant result is clean, shiny skin with improved texture and appearance

DIY Treatment For Soft Hands:

  • Buff and moisturize rough skin using a scrub cream and oil or body lotion 
  • Mix 4 parts kosher or sea salt with 1 part warm grapeseed oil, canola oil or olive oil and mix into a paste
  • Massage into hands in upward strokes and in circular motion
  • Remove with a warm/wet towel and follow with nail care by pushing back cuticle using an orange stick and filing rough nail edges with Emory board.  Follow hand massage with body or hand lotion
  • Wrap hands in warm cotton gloves or place in plastic bags and wrap with warm towels – instant result is skin that’s clean, soft and luxurious

    is there anywhere that would have grapeseed oil in local stores or is that something you have to order online? I totally need to make some of the hand scrub! My hands stay so dry. I agree that the summer is rough on skin but for me personally, my hands get CRAZY dry in the winter so I need to start NOW on keeping them soft!!!

    • I usually get my grapeseed in either BJs or any local grocers! It’s usually with the olive, sunflower, etc oils! The hand scrub is super awesome! I do all my own scrubs! I am experimenting with coffee scrubs too lol! It’s never too early to start preventative measures for dry skin 🙂

  • Regina Malloy

    Great tips. I am going to try the one for the hair and the face… yeah here’s to healthy skin and hair!!

    • Thanks for liking the tips! The hair and face recipes are great choices. I love my hair and skin healthy 🙂

  • Love these DIY beauty recipes! i have to try that hand scrub out, my hands need some TLC.

  • Jake Smith

    I loved lemons and the health benefits it could do to the internal part of the body. I never thought it’ll be good for the hair too. Awesome.

  • Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    I LOVE this! I’m totally bookmarking this for next summer. We have a long summer down here in Georgia, so I’ll get a lot of use out of this post. Thank you!

  • I need to try some of these out. I always want softer hands, that’s for sure. In the winter they can get pretty dry.

  • I’m going to have to try your DIY suggestion for healthy hair. I think I have everything I need to give this a go today. I have company coming from out of state this week and I want my hair to look good.

  • Rochkirstin Santos

    Try using lavender oil with almond oil for your cuticles and hands. It’s a nice natural remedy that you can apply daily or weekly to maintain softnes of skin. Wouldn’t yogurt smell sour though on the hair?

  • Tina Butler

    My daughter loves all of the DIY face, hair and body treatments. I will have to send her the link to this post. She loves honey so I see a few she might like. Any ideas for severe chapped lips?

  • Tina Butler

    My daughter loves all of the DIY beauty treatments especially for her hair and face, so I will have to pass this link on to her. Any ideas for severe chapped lips?

  • I really needed this for my hair! Between the salt water from the beach and the chlorine in the pool, my hair has seen better days. I am gonna give a couple of these a try.

  • Stockpiling Moms

    Thanks for these amazing DIY summertime tips. My hair is really dry right now due to the sun and chlorine so the hair mask tips are perfect! I like to use sugar scrubs and salt scrubs to remove dry skin too. I am going to put several of these tips to use!

  • Vanessa Palma

    Thanks for these tips, especially the one for healthy hair. I’m finding that spending a lot of time in the pool this summer has taken its toll with the chlorine. I’ll try this out and let you know how it goes.

  • Jennifer G

    These are great tips for the summer! I love them so much. My hair gets so dry and frizzy and it drives me crazy!

  • Love these ideas! We ALL need to just stop now and then and relax and take better care of ourselves. These are fun and unique ways to do so!

  • Ruthie Ridley

    Great tips!!! Love the one for the healthy hair!

  • reddel

    These are some wonderful tips. I’m a tea lover but I’ve never heard of using all these different types of teas for skin and hair repair. Thanks for the advice!

  • Theresa

    I have never thought to use tea on my hair. I usually use coconut oil, but I can’t wait to try the lemon/tea mixture!

  • Melissa Dixon

    I need to work on my hands! I would love to have soft hands again, they have gotten so rough lately.

  • These are good ideas. i would love the scrub, I bet it would smell delicious.

  • Kristine Nicole Alessandra VA

    I think I would want to try that green tea and lemon treatment for my hair. Avocado and yogurt would make my hair really shiny. Thanks for these DIY list of beauty treatments. I am bookmarking this for reference.

  • I absolutely love using natural products on my skin! Some of my faves are eggs, avocado, coconut oil, oats, yogurt and lemon! I find I get even better results using natural products!

  • Angela Milnes

    This is exactly what I need for my hair glad that you share this tips and I’m so excited to try this

  • Kathy

    These are all great ideas. I love that they’re all DIY. That’s always the best. I’d love to give these all a try.

  • I’ve been wanting to do a hair treatment for a long time. I am a little skeptical though, I feel like the first step would try out my hair because the lemon is acidic. After reading the following steps, I can see how the other ingredients act as a conditioner but I am still unsure of whether this would work for all hair types.

  • Kelly Reci

    These is such a great tips. I do really love diy’s. I will definitely check his out. Especially for the hair.

  • Julie Syl

    Wow!! This DIY’s treatment looks so interesting. I will definitely try this at home. Thanks for sharing.

  • Censie ‘Mumby’ Sawyer

    I need this now just to repair my skin from the summer but also prepare it for the winter. Here in Colorado is gets so dry so my skin looks terrible. My feet and hands are the worst for sure. Thanks for this great article. so much helpful info.

  • Michelle Kneece Waller

    These are all really great tips. I need to try the hair ones out. My hair is looking a little rough.

  • Marysa

    I love natural treatments – homemade is the best way to go when you want to know just what is in your beauty products! These sound great, easy enough to make and good for the skin.

  • The soft hands treatment sounds very nice! I’d like to try that sometime.

  • pnkgirl25

    hmm.. sounds all very relaxing. I may ask the kids to mix it for me. They think it’s play time. Then I can pamper myself with the mixtures, haha. Thanks for sharing.

  • I love DIY treatments for skincare and hair care! The last one I tried was a coffee scrub, but I can’t wait to try this one!

  • David Elliott

    This looks like a great natural skin care. I know that my daughter loves these kinds of treatments. I will have to show her this.

  • Lynn Dee

    These DIY treatments sound awesome. I’m going to do the one for the soft hands first because my hands sure do need some pampering.

  • I love at home spa treatments like these. I want to try that hair and scalp treatment. It sounds soothing.

  • These are really great tips and very easy to make too! I like DIY stuff like these because I know then exactly what’s in it and ‘fresh’ somewhat haha. Thanks again!

  • These are really great tips. I like DIY stuff. The hair and scalp treatment sounds fab.

  • Christy Garrett

    My hair could use some TLC now that summer has come and gone. I’ve heard the avocado mixture is super moisturizing.

    I also need to try the honey mask too.
