Business, school, and work – often leaves us stressed out, overwhelmed and in dire need of a break. Add kids and a husband to that mix and a few minutes (or a couple of hours) of alone-time are a dream come true, even if a seldom realized one. So every once in a while it is essential to allow yourself a few moments for some pampering activities!
Treating ourselves with natural beauty treatments, which are so easy and fun, would be wonderful for a girl’s night (or afternoon) in.
How about some simple facial masks?
Here two examples of simple, yet effective (and most importantly) de-stressing facial mask you can create at home. Use only the best ingredients available, of course organic.
Simply Delicious Olive-oil-Sugar Peeling Mask
You will need:
3 Tablespoons of high-quality olive oil
2 tablespoons of sugar (unbleached, raw vegan sugar is the best for this)
Mix and GENTLY rub into your face in circular motion, careful not to rub too hard. A gentle, all over rub is efficient, careful to avoid the eyes and the lips. Thoroughly rinse your face, to remove the peeling mask. Dry your face by padding, not rubbing the skin.
Cool-Calm Yogurt-Lemon-Honey Mask
You will need
6 Tablespoons of organic greek yogurt
the juice of a lemon (again organic)
1 teaspoon of raw honey
Apply mask leave it on 20 to 30 minutes (not longer). Rinse thoroughly with warm – not hot! – water. This mask is a good remedy for dry skin, as the honey and yogurt are hydrating.
