Have you been staying hydrated in this recent heat wave? In today’s practice we use Turmeric as an anti- inflammatory agent and grapefruit to purify. Together we have a facial mask recipe that will leave your skin feeling refreshed and nourished (without leaving Turmeric’s notorious color!)
Tonight after returning home from your day, take the opportunity to relax outdoors first. Go into your garden with a chair and spend a few moments sitting quietly. Look around. What do you notice? Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells that you encounter. You may be surprised at what or who comes into your company after sitting for a certain length of time. Do you notice the songbirds or squirrels? Can you feel the warm evening breeze rolling in? Take a deep breath and unwind.
Before entering your home, pause at the door and again practice showing appreciation for your personal sanctuary. This is your sacred place, where you can truly relax, feel safe and secure, and are always welcome.
Start your Wednesday evening with the preparation of a good meal, and your beauty products. Enjoy the process of preparing food – food for your body and food for your skin. Our practice for tonight gives you an opportunity to counteract the heat accumulated in your skin from the day. Our recommended facial and skin mask is a unique blend of turmeric root, yogurt, fresh grapefruit juice and raw honey.
1 Tbsp – Scentsible Life facial mask
¼ tspn – Turmeric Root
½ Tbsp – Fresh Grapefruit juice
1 tspn – Spoon full of raw honey
1 tspn – Yogurt
Begin your evening ritual by preparing your facial mask:
Take a bowl and squeeze ½ Tablespoon of fresh grapefruit juice into a bowl. Add ¼ teaspoon of grated, fresh Turmeric root, and one teaspoon of yogurt. Mix well. Warm one teaspoon of honey and add to the yoghurt/Turmeric mixture. Blend well and then stir in the Scentsible Life Facial Mask.
After you have finished preparing the recipe, take a nice relaxing shower or a footbath (if you want to save water). Allow the water to wash away residual stresses from your day leaving you clean and clear in your mind and body. While you shower or soak feel appreciation for your body, the home for your spirit.
After your shower or your foot bath, apply the facial mask to your face and skin to invigorate and nourish your complexion. Allow the mask to set for 15 minutes. Wash it off with warm to hot water. Complete your regimen with a facial massage with Scentsible Life’s Facial Oil and a spritz of our Hydrotone.
Enjoy this wonderful evening!
