14 Days of Pampering For Valentine's Day Part 3

The Finals Days of Pampering: Days 9-14 Part 3

I really hope many of you have been taking care of you and have begun the process of  learning to pamper yourselves!


Let's wrap this series up!

Day  9     Today we get to apply some goop onto our face and
                take care of those dark circles, puffy tired eyes!
                Remember what you wrote on your pad of paper.
                Is your face, dry, oily or do you have combination
                skin? Before you start, remember to pull your hair
                back and remove all your makeup with your favorite
                cleanser! Choose from the recipes according to your
                needs: (all face mask recipes are from Homemade Facial Masks 
                        Recipes / All Recipes Index )

    Mash the avocado and the olive oil together in a bowl. Apply to your face and wait for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water. 

    Combination Skin:

    This mixture with exfoliate and nourish your skin at the same time. Great for combination skin.

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 Tbsp full-fat yogurt
  • 1 tsp olive oil 


    Puree all ingredients in a blender. Apply to freshly clean face and leave on for 15 minutes. Wash off with warm water and pat dry. 

    For the Eyes:  Treat with sliced cucumber, sliced potato, or tea bags.  Try not to rub your eyes, instead pat them every so gently and get plenty of rest, until the 13th day. (Everyday) for the rest of your life would be great, but that isn't gonna happen!)  Drink water and 
    apply lotion to your body!!

    Day 10      Make your special one a Valentine's gift and card. I'm
                      making cookies for my hubby and family. (Recipe
                      posted by tbspSusan)   
                               I'll be putting these cookies in a tin with a bow!

    Day 11      Throw a towel in the dryer for about 10 minutes to warm
                      it up while you deep condition your hair.  Apply heated
                      coconut oil, olive oil, or canola oil, on your hair. Coat
                      entire hair with your choice of oil and wrap your hair
                      around your head and cover with a plastic bag.  Take
                      that towel out of the dryer and wrap it around your head.
                      The warmth helps condition the hair. Leave on for 20-30
                      minutes.  If you have oily hair, only condition the ends
                      of your hair!

                      Lay down and apply cucumber slices, potato slices or
                      tea bags on your eyes. Set your timer and relax!
                      After 20-30 minutes,  remove eye treatment and
                      shampoo hair.  Your hair will be silky soft!       

    Day 12      Today get a good nights rest! Eight hours if you can!!!
                     Also, make sure you have your gift and card ready. 
                     Check on the babysitter, do your last minute grocery
                     shopping, rent those movies for movie night, or get that
                     wine you'll need.  

    Day 13      Exfoliate the skin!  You will need 1/4-1/2 cup of white
                      sugar and your favorite body wash (place the sugar in 
                      your shower where it won't get wet while showering).
                      Sprinkle some sugar on to your hand and start to 
                      scrub your elbows, knees, legs, arms, shoulders, neck
                      and face, while in the shower.   Apply more sugar as
                      needed.  You can apply some body wash on to your
                      hands with the sugar.   Rinse off!  I don't like using
                      the body wash on my face, just sugar and water.  Your
                      skin will feel smooth and soft!!!  Lotion up!

                     Remember to drink your water, and get a good nights

    Day 14      Its time to shine and show off your beauty! Have fun!
                      I would love to hear back from you, so please share!!

    This series is just a touch of what pampering is about!  I know all of us want that outer beauty, but that outer beauty starts with your inner beauty!  All of you are beautiful and it's important to believe that.  I know my Maker, Creator of heaven and earth, has created you and me, to be beautiful!
