The best beauty treatments to try at home

There are some beauty treatments that are in-salon musts, and definitely worth the dollars. But not every task requires the touch of a pro.

Here are some treatments you can easily DIY at home

DIY GREY COVER-UP

Nobody wants to find a stray grey or two right before a special event. Root concealer is the best way to hide those pesky, misbehaving strands in between salon visits. Who doesn’t love a temporary fix?

bh recommends: Marc Anthony bye.bye Gray, Root Touch Up Spray, 1000 Hour Hair Color Mascaras

DIY FACIAL

While splashing out on a luxurious facial is one of life’s greatest pleasures, they’re not exactly part of the weekly budget. At-home facials are just as beneficial – and hey, you can eat pizza AND watch Girls while getting your mask on. #multitasking

bh recommends: Abeeco Bee Venom Masks, Moroccan Natural 100% Natural Pearl Powder, Eminence Organic Skin Care Blueberry Soy Repair Masque, Lush Brazened Honey, Josh Rosebrook Cacao Antioxidant Mask

DIY DYE JOB

My colourist is going to kill me for this, but sometimes a girl’s gotta be spontaneous. You get it, right? Just promise me you’ll work with the good stuff.

bh recommends: Schwarzkopf Colour Mask, L’Oréal Paris Excellence Age Perfect – Cremé Colour, Paul Mitchell Colour Protect Take Home Kit

DIY MANICURE

My favourite beauty indulgence is a mani (that massage chair = Do Not Disturb), but when the polish chips or I can’t make it to the salon, I take matters in my own hands. Pun totally intended.

bh recommends:Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure

DIY SMILE BOOSTER

Fact: everyone loves a dazzling smile. While I definitely don’t visit the dentist as often as I should, what I lack in dental fees I make up for in obsessive compulsive DIY dental care.

bh recommends:Oral-B 7000 Black, Oral-B 3D White LUXE Booster Kit, Oral-B 3D White Glamorous White Rinse, Oral-B 3D White Brilliant Mint Toothpaste

DIY HAIR REMOVAL

Personally, I’d rather spend my cash where I can see it… pretty shoes. I’m going to be honest, I rarely outsource my waxing. With the right products on your side and a little know-how, it’s not so bad.

bh recommends: Nair Bikini and Underarm roll-on wax, Nad’s Bikini & Underarm Wax Strips, Waxaway After Waxing Oil

DIY FAKE TAN

Summer’s a distant memory, and it took our bronzed skin with it. If standing naked in a cold room while someone blasts you with brown-tinted air isn’t how you want to spend your wintery Thursday nights, just get your glow on yourself!

bh recommends:1000 Hour Self Tan Applicator Mitt, Bobbi Brown All Over Bronzing Gel SPF 15, pureTAN Light/Medium Instant Tanning Foam, St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse

DIY BUFF AND SCRUB

I just spent a week in heaven, sorry – I mean Bali –  so I know how good a spa buff and scrub feels (soooo good). But now I’m back in jumpers and jeans, I’m doing my best to maintain tip top skin minus the dryness and flakes with regular exfoliation. The holiday blues are real, people.

bh recommends: Dirty Works Buff Your Stuff Body Scrub, Eco Tools Bamboo Loofah, Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Scrub, Kiehl’s Milk, Honey and Almond Scrub
