Sunday Spa Treatment

Sunday is the perfect day to set aside to pamper yourself or have a "spa day" with your girlfriends. 

An herbal facial steam is something simple that can be done at home. It will not only hydrate your skin but will also soften the surface and aid in healing any lesions.

For a Pore Perfect Steam
           boil 4 cups of distilled water (some recipes call for water & vinegar)
           remove from heat, add dried herbs, (double amount if using fresh herbs) cover
           allow to steep for about 5 minutes
           place the pot in a safe, stable place where you can sit comfortably for about 10 minutes
           use a bath towel to create a tent over your head, shoulders and the pot
           allow 10-12 inches between the steaming herb pot and your face
           close your eyes, breathe deeply and relax

My favorite wrinkle chaser recipe:
      1 Tbsp crushed fennel seeds
      2 drops essential oil of rose or rose geranium
Add the essential oil right before you steam your face
