Mommy Makeovers

Being stuck at home this last week with sick kiddos had me feeling rather stir crazy, so I decided to make the best of it by doing a makeover with my daughter. Luckily for me she is a self-proclaimed super "girly girl" and thus always game for my spa antics. I have enjoyed doing at home spa's since my childhood when I would cover myself in mud and put raw eggs in my hair, so it's fun to finally have someone else to share the gooeyness with.

Heres How:

Steam: I filled a basin with hot water and two herbal tea bags (I use rooibos and lavender, but whatever blows your hair back is fine)
Scrub: With our pores nicely opened, next came a homemade scrub that was good enough to eat (really). Mixing honey and sugar until we had a granulated paste.
Mask: After we rinsed of our scrub (well, my daughter mostly licked it off) we got to the messiest part. We mashed together a banana and an avocado, and my daughter loved putting the goop all over my face. We then sat with cucumbers on our eyes for 5 minutes. 

I finished up with a tissue oil for me and regular lotion for the little princess. 

We felt refreshed and sparkly.

Love and lotions,
