Once in a great while my skin and body needs a little bit of rejuvenating so I whip up a batch of my homemade rejuvenating body mask. It helps hydrate, nourish, firm, tone, and soften the skin and body right up in the comfort of your own home. It basically a home spa treatment that is affordable and relaxing and good for the body, mind, and soul.
The ingredients needed to make the homemade rejuvenating body mask are 5 cups of facial green clay powder, 1 cup of strong organic coffee, 1 cup of green tea, 1 cup of melted shea butter, 1/2 a cup of melted cocoa butter, 1 teaspoon of vitamin E oil, and 1 tablespoon of almond oil. These ingredients should be organic or natural. They can be found at your local drug stores and herbal stores. Some of the ingredients you may even have on hand.
The reason coffee and green tea is used is because they both contain antioxidants and caffeine. The antioxidants help nourish and protect the skin while the caffeine helps tone and firm up the skin. The shea butter, cocoa butter, vitamin E oil, and almond oils are used to help hydrate, soften, nourish, and protect the skin while helping it glow so it looks younger and brighter. The clay is used to provide minerals to the skin that might be needed while also firming and toning the body right up.
The best way to make the homemade rejuvenating body mask is by placing the 5 cups of facial green clay powder, 1 cup of strong organic coffee, 1 cup of green tea, 1 cup of melted shea butter, 1/2 a cup of melted cocoa butter, 1 teaspoon of vitamin E oil, and 1 tablespoon of almond oil into a large metal bowl. Then you will make to take a mixer and beat the ingredients together on medium speed for 2 minutes until you get a thick smooth dark color green mask. If you find the mask is too thick add more coffee and if you find the mask is to runny add more clay. The mask goes on the best when it is thick so keep that in mind when you are making this body mask. Once the body mask is made you can place it in a plastic container and take it straight to the bathroom to be used immediately.
Now the way you use this homemade rejuvenating body mask is by taking off all your clothing and lathering the body mask all over your body from head to toe in a nice thick even layer. You will want to apply this mask in the bathtub or shower without running water because it is messy and if you make a mess in the bath or shower you can simply rinse it down afterward without a problems. It is also okay if you get this mask in your hair because it will help remove hair styling products from it and help soften it up a bit as well while adding shine and nourishment. Once you have the body mask on your whole entire body allow it to stay on for 30 minutes for best results. The mask should dry a bit so if you want to place a towel or robe on and go do stuff around the house that is fine. However, I sometimes if find the mask is slightly oily and greasy and I am unable to do that so it is easier for me to stay in the bathroom with the body mask on and read a book. Once the times is up all you do is simply get into the shower and rinse the mask off. After your skin and body will be toned, firmed, glowing, softer, and brighter appearing. If you use this mask in your hair you might want to consider using a shampoo after rinsing the mask out to help clean your hair really well.
For those of you who try making this homemade rejuvenating body mask I do hope you have an easy time making it and a wonderful time enjoying what it does for your body and skin. I hope you all have a wonderful spa moment at home.
