Simply Homemade

As promised this is the mud mask I made myself this week! Trying to dry these damn pimples that have decided to invade my face..urgh!! All products were bought in my local Whole Foods but should you not have one near by hit up your good girlfriend Amazon.com, everything can be found there as well! Now I do suggest doing a patch test on your face to make sure that your skin can withstand these products, don’t want any extra irritation on top of what you maybe trying to clear up!! Side note facial skin and body skin are DIFFERENT so please treat them accordingly, you need facial products and body products typically you cannot use the same products on the body on the face.

Also this mask can be made with water, or buttermilk the vinegar can sometimes be a little strong so try what works for you! Oh and I’m an eye baller, meaning I rarely I measure so my rule of thumb for a one time use is 2 tsp of the clay, 2 of the liquid (h2o, vinegar, buttermilk), 5drops of lavender

Briggs Apple Cyder Vinegar – is antibacterial/anti-fungal which helps prevent acne and skin infections, unclogs pores, oil controlling and helps to balance ph!! YAAAASSSS things I love to see in products I purchase, now I’m thinking bump buying bs I’ll just make it myself.

Now Lavender Essential Oil – good for reducing redness and irritation, reduces appearance of scaring, promotes healing, and semi oil controlling!! Nothing but good can come from this stuff!

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay (Bentonite Clay) – draws outs toxins, helps to heal skin/rejuvenate skin, clear/prevent acne, unclogs/shrinks pores, and reduces appearance of scars. Sounds like a miracle product right?? Why the hell didn’t I get this stuff before?!

So here recently I’ve been totally unmotivated when it comes to cooking myself a meal or two so I’ve been here and there and a few other places in between. Below are a few of my treats along with a few outings with my girls.

Listen I’m a bit of a wino, but I only drink white wine. I’m trying to get into the red side of life but the few I’ve had I don’t recall the names (silly me), the last red I had was an Argentinian Malbec that gave me heartburn. I haven’t had one sense, if you have suggestion that won’t flare up my old lady indigestion issues please drop a few names below I’ll gladly try a few.

Technically not food but it should be considered such!! This was a yummy petite noir that i don't recall the name of sadly. I'm not much of a red wine gal but I'm trying it out!
