What's Making at Craft Beauty
I've been creating away the weekend with Mother's Day on my mind. It's always nice to get flowers from your kids, a colourful bunch of daisies always brigtens the spirit or an elegant English garden mix brings class and beauty to the day, so this Mother's Day why not put those flowers -lavender flowers that is- into the bath for a few minutes of relaxation.
Aptly named these "Mama Needs a Minute!" Bath Melts will have you melting away from whatever is waiting on the other side of the bathroom door! Along with skin soothing butters like shea, mango and cocoa the scent of lavender penetrates deep into the soul and skin bringing with it its many benefits for your health and well being.
Lavendar essential oil is harvested through steam distillation a process that maintains the quality and integrity of the many therapeutic applications. Lavendar has a long list of health benefits including its ability to eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, naturally disinfect the skin, enhance blood circulation and improve respiratory conditions. Lavender has been used for milenia in the treatment of acne and aid in achieving deep sleep and eliminating insomia, today lavendar is commonly found in perfumes and lotions for babies and those with sensitive skin.
As you slip this little nugget of AHHHH-mazing into your bath, you can rest assured that if you get no more than a minute you will emerge relaxed and hydrated from all the wonderful ingredients hand picked to sooth delicate skin and the senses.
$10 for 12 melts
I don't always have the time to bask in a long relaxing bath but I always take time to care for my skin, especially the parts that are exposed to the elements on a daily basis, (face, hands and decolleté). With summer right around the corner it's imperative to prepare the skin for the "busy season" of sun exposure and other environmental irritations.
Most mornings I can be found twittering about the house getting my kids ready for school with some concoction on my face!
"Mom you look like Shrek" is a common comment around here, and these days is no different, I am rocking this power mask packed with minerals and healing properites from the sea.
Dead Sea Mud is a natural phenomema, it's anti-mircobial properties when applied topically aid in healing of skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. It has shown effective in eliminating candida infections and also promoting hydration to plump the skin and reduce cellulite!!! WAIT... WAHT?!
Kelp is the other super ingredient that completes this masks power house capabilities, it promotes elasticity and collagen production two qualities that are important in maintaining youthful radiant skin.
Dead Sea Mud & Kelp spa treatments will cost upwards of $100/treatment, this 180g mask is 40+ face and decolleté masks or 2-4 full body treatments. Spot treatments are also a very effective way of treating small patches of eczema, psoriasis and other irritations.
