DIY: Winter SPA treatment

12/14/2012

We all know how this cold winter days can afflict our skin. So a treatment that smoothens and nurtures our skin is always welcome. Do you remember the old legends about Cleopatra and how she always bathed in milk? Well, maybe we can do it too from now on!

La nostra pelle in inverno non fa la vita facile: freddo, gelo e neve la tormenta. Un trattamento a base di latte ideato apposta per curare la pelle d'inverno é un ottimo regalo di natale. Perché in tutte noi si nasconde una piccola Cleopatra.


This DIY I found on a very cool site called Flamingotoes, is the perfect ladies gift this christmas. It's handmade, cute, it smells good and it's really helpful too.

Ho trovato il DIY su un sito veramente carino chiamato Flamingotoes e l'idea regalo mi é subito piaciuta.


All you need for the treatment is cornstarch, dry milk, oatmeal and tea (loose or teabags). Furthermore you need a tiny glass, various fabrics and ribbons and cute christmas stickers. Make sure the glasses are completely clean, I put them in boiling water.

Gli ingredienti sono: amido di mais, latte in polvere, avena macinata e té (in bustina o sciolto). Per la confezione ti serve un contenitore di vetro, stoffe e nastri di vari colori. Prima di iniziare fai sí che i bicchierini di vetro siano completamente puliti.


For every tiny glass you mix:
- five spoons of dry milk,
- one spoon of cornstarch,
- 1,5 spoons of oatmeal and
- three teabags (or 1,5 spoons of loose tea.)

La miscela per ogni contenitore é:
- cinque cucchiai di latte in polvere
- un cucchiaio di amido
- un cucchiaio e mezzo di avena e
- tre bustine (o due cucchiai) di té.

Since I filled more glasses I mixed everything in a big bowl.

Io ho mischiato tutto in una bacinella.


When you're finished mixing the ingredients, make sure the glass is completely dry and but the treatment in it. Now it's decorating time, use the fabrics and the ribbons to create a nice wrapping. The presentee can put two teaspoons of the treatment in the bathtub or use it like a peeling. If you want, you also can put a label on it that says what the present is, and how to use it.

Quando gli ingredienti sono stati mischiati con cura, assicurati che i bicchierini siano completamente asciutti prima di riempirli con il trattamento SPA. E ora é il momento della decorazione! 
Non dimenticate di dire alla donataria come usare il trattamento: gettare due cucchiaini nella vasca da bagno oppure strofinare la polvere sulla pelle come un peeling. 


Since I am crafting like crazy, you will definitely see more tutorials before christmas, but for further inspirations just look at my previous DIY's here!

Poiché Natale si avvicina qualche idea fai da te ci vuole, date un'occhiata qua.
