Mention body packs and most people run the other way saying they could never do ‘that’ – but in my opinion, you won’t know until you try it so set aside a day and just do it!
The most common complaint is the messiness of the treatment, but to me, that’s the best part, must be from my childhood summers spent making the best mud pies in the neighborhood.
If there is a way to improve on something, I’ll try it and I’ve found the best way to get someone to do this is to pick a warm summer day and drag out the ole’ bathing suit and head on outside where clean up is as simple and easy as picking up the garden hose (this is great fun if you get to the hose first!)
Just imagine picking flowers while coated in clay or seaweed, you’ll be the talk of the neighborhood, if you’re like me, they already think your crazy anyway!
Double the ingredients if you can get a friend to do this with you:
- 6 Tablespoons kelp
- 6 Tablespoons clay
- 4 Tablespoons arrowroot or other powder ingredient
- 2 teaspoons sweet almond oil
- 2/3 cup warm water
- (if you have dry skin, replace the water with cream)
Mix dry ingredients together, stir in warm water and mix until smooth, then stir in the oil and mix well. Let sit for about 10 minutes to thicken, then massage into the body. Leave on for about 1/2 hour, rinse off, follow up with a light body lotion.
Natural Skin Care Based on Science
Your skin is the largest organ in your body. What you put on it can have a profound impact on your overall health over the long term. That’s why every ingredient in your skincare product needs to be carefully chosen … to feed your skin with essential nutrients.
Did you know that many skincare products contain only tiny amounts of certain active ingredients, just so they can add them to the label? Or that many popular and expensive skincare products can actually damage your skin?
