Guilt-Free Beauty Indulgences

This holiday season, The Thread is showing you some easy and sinless ways to finally indulge. You know you've been putting it off all year--now is the time to pamper yourself. From at-home antioxidant facials to exfoliating body scrubs, here are some budget-friendly ways to treat yourself this season.

Spoil your hair - If you want to go darker like our host Jessica Stam or Dakota Fanning, treat your locks to a dye that contains aloe and vitamins to ensure a healthy shine.

Show your face some love - A rejuvenating face mask made from blueberries, raw honey, and organic olive oil packs a punch of antioxidants and keeps skin radiant. Apply the mask and leave it on your skin for five minutes.

Exfoliate your skin - A homemade body scrub of instant oatmeal, lemon juice, and plain yogurt treat your epidermis to an all-natural, soothing exfoliation. Not just for breakfast anymore!

Fake that tan - A lightweight liquid body bronzer helps you maintain that confident summer glow you had going without all the health risks and time wasted at a tanning salon.

Pamper your nails - You may have known that gel manicures can last for up to two weeks, but did you know there now ways to to them at home? Skip the salon and try out a holiday-ready bright red!

Indulge that sweet tooth - Who can resist the siren call of chocolate? Well, you don't have to--dark chocolate (with at least 70% cacao) contains properties that help promote healthy skin, shiny hair, and build strong nails. Plus it tastes delicious!
