First off, our first Vlog post. Wee! I’m on camera!
I finally made a visit out to the garden yesterday to get some serious weeding done. Sorry I don’t have any before and after photos, but just picture weeds up to your knees covered in thorns and thistles attacking all of my delicate carrot and lettuce seedlings.
They’re bullies, I tell you.
They got me too.
My hands are covered in scratches and blisters. My shoulders are sunburnt. My back is killing me.
Just to be clear, I’m not complaining. My life is pretty fantastic and if these are the hardest parts of my day I’ll gladly take it! It’s just that as a busy mom I don’t get a lot of time to take care of me.
I mean, honestly, the most indulgent part of my day is when I do the dishes, and that’s because the Dawn dish soap that I use actually moisturizes my skin unlike the other detergents that just dry it out. (To be frank, I had my doubts that it would work on my ultra worked hands, but it really did!)
Since I spend about 50% of my day doing dishes, I guess that means I spend a lot of time pampering myself, ha!
Anyway, if you’re short on time but ready for a tiny bit of pampering try this recipe. I’m including a video tutorial (a Vlog! our first! did you see me up there?!) plus a printable recipe annnnd we’re also doing a giveaway! So many good things packed into one tiny blog post!
By the way, a little food for thought:
Bananas are one of my favorite go-to sources for fighting acne. Applying a coat of mashed bananas to your skin should suffocate the bacteria in your cells, forcing breakouts from acne to heal quicker. Their anti-bacterial properties can also reduce swelling and infections.
Oatmeal contains a protein which will leave a fine protective film on the skin, keeping moisture in and ensuring soft, smooth baby texture. They’re also packed with natural cleansers (called saponins) that remove dirt and oil from your pores.
