Besides for having a Saturday Ashtanga practice today, I was looking forward to two things- a hot Epsom Salt bath and a facial. It was a long week. I probably shouldn’t have practiced today, but I listened to all my aches and pains and took it easy. I’ll save the intensity for India (omg India. Squeeeel). I also treated myself to the most amazing thing I’ve ever eaten (well, at least at that moment since I was starving)- a vegan meyer lemon tart from the brand Hail Merry. Their company uses raw oils including coconut, are gluten-free and is non-GMO verified. I highly recommend.
My epsom salt bath was divine. I kicked it up a notch and added a few drops of camomile and lavender essential oil. I decided to make an at home face mask. If you read my recent post about my new beauty find, you’ll know that I’m gaga over rosehip seed oil. I combined a half of an avocado with 10 drops of rosehip seed oil, 4 drops of tea tree oil and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Mix it all together and slather a good amount on your clean face. Warning- the mess factor is huge. Next time I’ll apply it in the kitchen. I now have mask all over my bathroom. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse. Make sure to take a selfie and instagram it 🙂 j/k…or not.
The avocado is very moisturizing, the rosehip seed oil is packed full of vitamins and antioxidants, the tea tree oil has antiseptic properties, and the lemon juice assists with getting the dead skin cells off.
I must say my skin is definitely glowing! There is also a great tingle from the tea tree oil. I’ll be incorporating this into my routine once a week for sure! Happy beautifying!
