DIY Pamper Weekend

ANOTHER long weekend is coming up and what better way of spending it by pampering yourself after all the Kadayawan Festival activities?

If you do not have any scheduled travel plans yet and if you’re in a “tipid mode” to go out for a spa session, here are some DIY masks and scrub ideas you may try that won’t cost you a lot for a pamper sesh this weekend.


Deep condition your hair by mixing one mashed avocado, 2 tablespoon (tbsp) coconut oil, and 1 tbsp honey. Massage the mixture onto your hair and wrap with a shower cap for 30-40 minutes. Wash, rinse and voila!

Avocado is rich in good fats that help in conditioning your hair, coconut oil adds shine and has antibacterial properties that helps fight dandruff, and honey helps in locking all that moisture to your hair. Avocado and coconut oil also helps in stimulating hair growth as well.


For the face, make your own skin tightening and firming mask by mixing 2 teaspoon (tsp) coffee or coffee grounds and 2 tsp honey. Apply on a freshly washed faced and let it sit for 3-5 minutes.

Coffee is rich in antioxidants that helps brighten dull skin while honey other than retaining all that moisture, also has antibacterial properties. Both coffee and honey also helps in reducing skin inflammation and redness to acne prone skin.


Now for a quick body scrub to remove all the dirt and dead skin cells mix 3 tbsp coffee grounds, 3 tbsp brown sugar and 3 tbsp coconut oil and scrub away.

Coffee grounds and brown sugar will help in removing the “gunk” from your skin and brighten it as well while coconut oil will leave your skin moisturized after.

Those are three DIY ideas that you can try for your own pamper sesh during this long weekend and the best part, you can do all these in the comforts of your home (and it’s cheaper too!).
