Fresh Honey & Buttermilk Body Mask

This luxurious at-home-spa treatment is best done after you have spent about ten minutes using a body brush to dry brush your skin.  Do you know about the amazing and healthy benefits of dry brushing? Here is an article about it (click HERE). Some of the benefits of dry skin brushing include increased circulation and removal of built-up dead skin cells. Regular dry brushing will keep your skin glowing! I do it several times per week.



You will be covering your entire skin with this mask and relaxing for about 45 minutes before you rinse it away with warm water.  You can choose to sit in an empty bathtub the entire time, or you can spread out a plastic shower curtain on your bed and make the room extra warm by turning the thermostat up a bit. I am way more relaxed lying on my comfy bed for 45 minutes versus sitting in a cold empty bathtub. If you are not worried about getting a blanket messy, wrap yourself up tightly in a warm blanket after you apply the body mask. I need to set my alarm because I usually end up falling asleep! Let this precious alone time be reserved for listening to soothing music, meditating, thinking positive thoughts or pondering about whatever brings you peace and joy.

The best way to apply the Fresh Honey & Buttermilk Body Mask is to use a paint brush to paint a thin even layer all over your skin. Don't be shy to ask your significant other to help apply it to your back.

Fresh Honey & Buttermilk Body Mask
makes one application

1 cup pure honey
2/3 cup fresh buttermilk
1/4 cup Mountain Rose Herbs Rhassoul Clay (plus more to thicken the recipe if desired)
1 teaspoon Mountain Rose Herbs Vitamin E Oil

Place all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well to form a thin paste. If you need to add more clay to thicken it up, use teaspoon increments until the desired texture is achieved. Spread a thin even layer over your entire skin (avoiding sensitive areas and eyes of course!). Rinse away with warm water after 45 minutes. Your skin will be super supple and moisturized.  Do this treatment at least twice a month!
