DIY Clay Face Mask

Green monster alert! It’s just natural to act reptilian when wearing a green face mask, right? But this mask won’t leave your skin feeling lizardly, thank goodness. Once a week I try to give myself an “at home spa day” or at least that’s what I call it whenever I do a facial. A bubble bath is usually involved. Our faces get the full effects of daily living in the elements and it’s important to pamper it every now and then. I love doing masks of all types, even hair masks! But I’ll stay on topic with this french green clay mask that only takes two ingredients: powdered clay and water. That’s it!

I use this french green clay that I got online. I got this 8 ounce tub for less that $8. It could make like a million face masks. French green clay has many benefits for the skin and I use it in other things as well. Check out my homemade soap here!¬†Seriously-when clay masks are this easy to make, you should give yourself more “at home spa days”

Check out my video of the process!

This year I had a major problem. I really wanted to make my own Christmas wreath with real tree clippings but I literally have a box of artificial wreaths in my closet. I don’t like to waste things. After getting our tree this year, I asked if I could take some clippings from the pile... Continue reading

It’s Faaaaahhl. I’m not gonna lie, I’m very transparent about my love for Fall. I don’t mess around.¬†Pumpkins, leaves, apples and spice-I need it all.
