The spa might be closed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself while quarantining, right? Believe it or not, there are tons of remedies for facial and hair treatments -- that you can do with ingredients that you probably already have deep in your cupboard or refrigerator.

Obviously, nothing compares to a day trip to a spa, getting waited on hand and foot, but with a little imagination (and some at-home ingredients), you can turn your home into the spa of your dreams, even in quarantine.
Is your skin super dry from all the hand-washing? These pantry items can help

Lash extensions, professional hair color, and Botox are off the table during stay-home order. Now what?
SAN ANTONIO – The stay-home orders in Bexar County, Texas and around the country have inadvertently started a new beauty trend or two. Natural beauty may be making a comeback but also the idea that anyone could be a kitchen beautician. Like during our great grandmothers’ time, home haircuts, at-home hair color and natural aging may become the norm again. If you are frightened to try your own hair color, Zillmann recommends trying temporary hair powders to cover the gray and get you through the next month, or try the trendiest hairstyle of 2020 and go completely gray. Some retail stores, like Sally’s, are doing curbside delivery of hair color kits, but once you get it home, “kitchen beauticians” might want to check out Youtube tutorials to make sure they get the result they want.
