Sunday Spa Day

I treated myself to a Citrus Spa Day for getting up early and walking for the past three mornings. I ran a hot bubble bath and put on my favorite relaxing music. I exfoliated my face and whipped up a homemade face mask (recipe to follow), then I had a long soak using all my favorite citrus scented bath and body goodies. My skin is soft and my muscles are feeling a lot better than they did yesterday morning.

Honey Rose Clay Mask
1 tablespoon honey (a great humectant)
2 ounces of well steeped rose herbal tea or your favorite herbal or green tea
2 packets of Stevia (scroll down the linked page for information on stevia and skin care)
French green clay

Mix honey, tea and stevia until well blended. Stir in enough clay until it becomes a thick and spreadable consistency. Apply to clean, dry facial skin, rinse after 15 minutes. Makes enough for 4 masks. Store in an airtight container in fridge and use it up within 2-3 weeks because of the lack of preservatives.
