5 Beauty Treatments You Can Do at Home | Budget-friendly


The global coronavirus pandemic has upended our routines, making us masters of DIY as we transitioned into our new lifestyle. Even in our beauty treatments, we learned a few tricks. Some treatments we tried have been successful, and we have decided not to discontinue them, even with the studios and salons reopened. 

Beauticians have seen the transformation and have come up with a plethora of treatments to transform you. Beyond the exfoliating devices and face masks, why not a DIY manicure or lash extension? Or perhaps perfect your tan or highlight your hair. Below we break down five budget-friendly beauty treatments you can do at home. 


Doing lash extensions at home all by yourself can give you stunning results. And you don’t have to worry about how to do lash extensions at home. The lashes offered by Lilac St are handmade by experienced artisans. They are bonded with cotton thread and skin-safe glue. Check out their step-by-step instructions to properly use it. Other brands you can try are Mac, Ardell and Vavalash.

The tools you would require for doing lash extensions on your own are individual lashes, eyelash glue, an application, and non-waterproof mascara. Black glue looks better with makeup than white glue. If you don’t have an applicator handy, a set of tweezers will do the trick. Apply mascara and eyeliner after every application. 


If the complexion on your face looks dry and lined, a facemask can do wonders. It can restore a dewy look within no time thanks to the moisture-holding and water-attracting ingredient called hyaluronic acid. Before trying it on, do a test on a sheet mask for about 20 minutes to see if there are any side effects, swelling, or redness. 

Apply a thick coat of mask on your face and leave it for a while or even have it on while you are asleep at night. The perfect combination of longer penetration and thicker application can deliver firmer, smoother facial skin. It can be easily done yourself without visiting the salon for face treatment, and the results can last for a whole day. 


When your color-treated hair needs a refresher, and you cannot make it to the salon any time soon due to work commitments, your best bet is to use a hair gloss. It can be your savior. Glosses can boost your hair even if it is done at home by yourself. And they take only 20 minutes of your time to give your hair a boost using this product. 

Some people think that hair glosses are only available at salons or upmarket stores. But that is not true. You don’t have to visit a salon to give your hair a salon-like life. Recent innovations have made it possible to have a hair gloss at home. It fearlessly and quickly enhances the tone of the hair and refreshes its color. 


Do not panic if you don’t get a timely spray tan appointment. You can do it at home. It is easy to achieve and get a golden glow that is beautifully done at home. No need to expose your skin to harmful UV rays. Pick up a DIY bronze bundle from any beauty store and apply them to your body. Sit and relax until it does its work. 

You can easily get a temporary healthy summer tan without spending your time outdoors. The bronze product includes a mouse, a tanning mitt, and a face tan water. Use the face tan water to match the tone of your face with the color of your body. The tanning mitt can be used to even out the tan and make it streak-free. They are all safe. 


The DIY manicure can be hard to master if you usually wear elaborate nail designs. Luckily, some nail salons have introduced at-home nail kits. They can be customized and would still rock even without visiting the salon. The at-home manicure offers an array of options. They include nail art, nail shape, and color combinations. 

Enjoy it all within the comfort of your home. For a finished look, tidy up the wobbly edges using a cuticle stick soaked in a remover. Trace it carefully around your nails for a thorough clean-up. Then let them dry for 5 minutes, and then you can be off to your party.
