The 10 commandments of DIY beauty

Fantasizing about a dreamy DIY day spa beauty experience from the comfort of your own home…

Thou shalt:

Set the mood.

Light a candle, dim the lights, turn off your phone (okay, okay, don’t panic; you don’t have to turn it off – but at least silence it) and turn on a relaxing playlist. If you need some inspo, just head here for your very own DIY day spa playlist.

Dress to de-stress.

Got a comfy robe? Some slippers? A silk headband? Slip ‘em on, gorgeous! It’s relaxation time.

Channel your inner beauty therapist.

Cleanse, exfoliate, mask and moisturise: There’s a method to their magic. Follow the same path at home for pro spa-like results.

Nourish your beauty from the inside.

Give yourself a splash of post-beauty ritual hydration with some lemon water, green tea or coconut water. (And don’t be scared to eat some greens later too! 😉)

Embrace mindful massage.

You might not be able to give yourself an at-home back massage (hmm… unless you’re exceptionally flexible!), but an at-home facial massage is well within your clever fingertips’ reach. And with the benefits including glowing skin, improved circulation, enhanced toning and facial rejuvenation, you can consider this a DIY ‘must’! More on this in the next few days.

Elevate your DIY beauty with lush tools.

You might be doing it yourself, but you don’t have to do it by yourself. The right tools can elevate your results and enhance your at-home beauty experience. My faves are facial rolling (I’ll be spilling the tea on this baby tomorrow!) and gua sha.

Thou shalt not:


Seriously, please take your time and let yourself relax. You deserve it.

Be rough.

Your skin and beauty are delicate – be gentle. This is especially important when cleansing, exfoliating and massaging. Psst - tomorrow I’ll teach you the six secrets of facial rolling. Tune in then!

Avoid oil.

The last thing you want is oil on your skin, right? Wrong! The right oil is essential for cultivating your glow. Pro tip: The best time to apply your oil is after cleansing and toning. You can mix your facial oil with your moisturizer or use it with your facial roller or gua sha tool while you’re massaging.

Overcomplicate it.

Got a face mask, oil and cream! That’s all you need for an at-home facial. Pinky promise.
