Twenty Five Days of Treats - Day 10

This is a treat for you - just you.  You deserve it.

By now, the office holiday parties have started in full swing.  And maybe, tonight, you need to look your absolute best.  So here's a little spa-type treat, easy to make with ingredients you probably have on hand.

SPH Honey Cornmeal Mask and Scrub
1/4 c. cornmeal (you can use polenta if that's what you have in the pantry - it's the same thing)
1 T. honey
a little water, if necessary

Mix it all together into a paste.  Spread on your face and lie down with a towel over your pillow.  Rest for 10-20 minutes.  Wash off in the shower, being careful not to get it into your eyes.  Use the rest as a body scrub while you are in there.  Also, be sure to RINSE YOUR TUB WELL when you get out.

Honey is a natural humectant, which means it helps hydrate your skin.  Who doesn't need that kind of help in the dry winter air?!  Plus, that little something extra for yourself puts a spring in your step, and make you feel "brighter".
