Salon visits are great for keeping you looking and feeling your best, but in-between visits, there’s plenty that you can do to improve this even further – and perhaps even reduce the cost of the treatments that you go for. Whether you want to improve the appearance of your hair, nails, skin, or even your teeth even more, the good news is that there are several home treatment options that you can try.

Clear Braces:

If you are happy with your appearance for the most part but self-conscious about an aspect of your smile, clear braces can help to align any teeth that aren’t perfectly straight and give you that celebrity smile that you have always dreamed of. Invisible braces are available in a range of styles from ALIGNERCO; you can get fixed ceramic braces that are an ideal choice for anybody who wants a lot of work done on their teeth, or clear aligners that can be worn at night and throughout the day to straighten some teeth that aren’t perfectly aligned. ALIGNERCO offers a wide range of clear and invisible options; find more information here about clear aligners for night-time wear, and book your consultation to determine the right kind of braces for your dental needs.

Hair Masks:

Keeping your hair in great condition in between salon visits will help you get better results from the cut and colour treatments that you go for, and if you want to keep your hair long, it’s the best way to prevent split ends that can leave you needing to go for a huge chop. While trimming the ends of your hair every 6-8 weeks is the best way to keep it looking and feeling healthy, you might also want to try some deep conditioning masks in between that are enriched with ingredients that will enrich and strengthen your hair.

Exfoliate:

Our skin regenerates itself very frequently, and good exfoliating treatment is the best way to keep your skin soft, smooth, and clear in between any professional skin treatments that you have. Exfoliating your skin is a simple and easy process and there are several different options that you can choose to do it. Exfoliating scrubs can be used in the shower around once a week to keep your skin smooth and clear as a part of your normal routine, or you can use an exfoliating glove with your regular soap or shower gel to scrub away any dry skin and leave you looking and feeling radiant.

Nail Treatments:

In between manicures and pedicures, keep your nails in top condition with a good nail strengthening treatment. You can get several great oils and nail strengthening solutions that can simply be applied to your nails in much the same way as you would apply a polish. This will help your nails grow stronger and longer and be less prone to flaking and breakages.

Teeth Whitening:

If you go for regular teeth whitening treatments, your teeth aren’t immune from getting stained again in between them. Thankfully, there are plenty of natural remedies for whiter teeth that you can use from home in-between visits to your dentist to keep your teeth as pearly white as possible. While it’s best to avoid beverages like coffee that can stain your teeth, you might want to consider drinking them through a straw to avoid direct contact with your teeth and brushing your teeth as soon as possible afterward to minimise the staining effects. Using a good whitening toothpaste as recommended by your dentist is also a wise idea, and you can use common household items like baking soda, which acts as a mild abrasive to gently scrub the stains from the surface of your teeth.

Natural Face Masks:

Have some weeks to wait until your next relaxing facial treatment? Keep your skin in top condition at home by using natural ingredients to make your own face mask. You can make easy face masks from ingredients such as Greek yogurt and honey, to reduce any inflammation on your skin and help prevent breakouts, acne, and redness on your face in between salon visits.

Soak Your Feet:

If you enjoy a spa pedicure from time to time, there’s nothing stopping you from giving yourself a similar relaxing treatment at home. Most of us are on our feet a lot, and over time, this can lead to dry, hard skin and callouses that are both uncomfortable and unsightly. Soaking your feet and treating yourself to a deep conditioning foot mask can be a great treatment to do at home on a budget. Soak your feet in hot water with honey and lemon for around twenty minutes before applying a thick layer of your favourite moisturiser.

Why wait until your next salon appointment to get the treatments that you need? There are plenty of great ways to practice self-care and enjoy beauty treatments that you can easily do yourself at home.
