Beauty products can be so expensive and with the current economy, we feel a little guilty when we over-indulge. Celebrity dermatologist and WebMD Expert, Dr. Susan Evans, recently showed us how we can whip up all-natural beauty concoctions right from the fridge. Budget, time and eco-friendly, these head to toe at-home spa recipes will turn any bath or shower into a sweet indulgence.

Coffee Break for Your Feet
