The Home Beauty Treatments You Can Attempt and the Ones That Require a Professional

If you want a new look, there are so many at-home beauty treatments you could try. Many of them take a few minutes and can be completed with items and products you already have lying around the house. For complicated beauty treatments, you need to see a professional. Below, we will look at some treatments you can do at home and some that you absolutely need to go see a professional for.

Hair Colour

Changing your hair color is a fun at-home beauty treatment that anyone can do. It is also one of the fastest ways to give yourself a new look. The good news here is that there are lots of different products you could use, and most of them even come with everything you need, including the dye, combs, and gloves. Their instructions are also simple enough so that anyone can do it.

One thing you should know is that if the dye contains harsh chemicals and your hair is already weak, you should go to a professional to have your hair dyed.


An at-home gel manicure is another popular option for those who would not like to or cannot visit a salon at this time. There are lots of manicure kits that you can order online and give your nails the care and love they deserve right from home.

Teeth Whitening

A smile is one of the first things people notice, and this is why a lot of people go for teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is very low risk, and most people only report slight tingling in their teeth afterward. The biggest struggle for most people is getting the whitening strips in the right way so you might have to find some online sources to direct you on that. Although a lot of people will find whitening strips adequate, those with tougher stains might have to go with the kits that use light to whiten the teeth.


Many of the people who go to the salon to get waxed do not know that they can do it for themselves at home. If you can tolerate the pain and need some parts of your body hairless, you could purchase body wax kits and do it yourself. Although waxing is a lot more painful than shaving, it lasts longer, does not cause razor burn, and there is less ingrown hair.

Do make sure that the wax is not too hot so you don’t burn yourself and that your hair is long enough for the wax to adhere to.


Tanning in the sun can result in uneven skin tone, which is why a lot of people prefer a self-tanning kit. A lot of the sprays available on the market are easy enough to use, and the only thing you have to worry about is getting the tan applied right. For the best results, go with a water-foam product. This type of tan is easier to apply and does not need to be rinsed off afterwards. Water-foam tans also dry a lot quicker so you do not waste a lot of time waiting around.

Teeth Straightening

Teeth straightening is very common, especially among children and teens, but that does not mean that you cannot have your teeth straightened as an adult. There are many different options available, and this is one beauty procedure that requires a professional. Once you go to see an orthodontist, they will discuss the different options available depending on the strength of your gums and teeth.

Although fixed metal braces are a very common option, these braces cost a lot and require a lot of delicate care to ensure they are doing their job properly. They are also unsightly, which is why clear braces are becoming increasingly popular. Clear or invisible braces are meant to be worn by teens and adults only. Your orthodontist will fit you with the braces and then require you to come in every few months to have them replaced. If you want your teeth straightening and need more information, you can read about clear braces here. Straight My Teeth aims to give everyone a better, straighter, and whiter smile. They provide clear aligner treatment with their treatment plans formulated by their team of qualified orthodontists.


There are peels available for almost any part of the body, with the most common areas being the face and the soles of the feet. Peels are becoming very popular as they are a great way to improve your skin. Peels provide instant results and are a lot cheaper and less dangerous than surgical options.

Although you can get a kit at your local pharmacy, it is always a good idea to let a professional handle this one for you. They will do it right, with the right products and ensure the results remain for a long time.


Just like peels, facials can go either way. There are products available that let you do a facial at home. But, a lot of people prefer going to a professional, especially when they are pressed for time or do not know how to do the facial themselves. Facials are an inexpensive option for those who need an instant glow and who do not want complicated facial beauty treatments.

Scalp Treatments

Our scalps go through so much due to the different products we use on them. Beauty professionals recommend undergoing a detox scalp treatment from time to time. These treatments repair stressed hair and get rid of a dry, itchy scalp. A detoxing scalp treatment regulates the glands that produce oil in your scalp, removes dead skin and flakes, rejuvenates the scalp and stimulates it to produce healthy cells. A scalp treatment can also make your hair look better by promoting circulation in your scalp and replenishing moisture.

Although you could do this one yourself, it is always better to go to a salon. There are a lot of areas you cannot reach on your head, and having someone else do the scalp treatment for you means they will reach all these areas.

Changing Your Hairstyle

Most people have the one hairstyle they have had for the longest time. This is the hairstyle that makes them most comfortable and looks good on them. That said, it would not hurt to change your hairstyle. It does not have to be anything complicated as you can wear your hair differently, have some of it cut, or even tie it differently. This is a good way of getting a new look without having to visit a professional. That said, if you decide to have your hair cut, it would be best to let a professional do it so they can ensure it is even in the places you cannot see.


Tinting of the brows and lashes is becoming very popular. A brow or eyelash tint takes a few minutes to apply and can last for up to four weeks. It gives your brows and lashes depth and makes your eyes stand out. A good tint lets you get rid of your mascara as you will no longer need it. A professional should be able to direct you on the best products so use, but if this is a new beauty treatment to you, let the professional do it for you.

There are so many beauty treatments you could do to enhance your look. Most of them can be done at home, but it is always a good idea to let a professional handle the treatments for you if there is a certain level of complexity involved. Also, always follow all instructions for at-home treatments carefully to ensure you do everything right and get the best results.
