Champagne Face Masks

Wondering what you're going to do with all your Valentine's Day leftovers after the big day? Fear not and plan ahead. If you have leftover champagne and mimosas are not your thing, do the next best thing and beautify your face. Like wine, champagne is made from grapes. The high antioxidant and polyphenol content in grapes that is often touted as a health winner is also good for skin. So, save that last bit of the champagne... for your face.

Here's what you'll need:
Rhassoul or Bentonite Clay
Milk Powder, Half & Half or Creme
Optional: Lavender Essential Oil

ClayMask1Recipe # 1
2 ounces Clay (Rhassoul or Bentonite)
1/2 ounce Champagne
1/2 ounce Half and Half
5 drops Lavender Essential Oil

ClayMask3Recipe # 2
1 ounce Clay (Rhassoul or Bentonite)
1 ounce Milk Powder
1 ounce Champagne (the real deal, not the fragrance oil)
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil

ClayMask2Recipe #3
1 ounce Clay
1/2 ounce Champagne
5 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Directions: Choose a recipe and measure out all the ingredients. Mix together. Put on face for 15 minutes until dry. Rinse with warm water.

See how great your skin feels as the clay helps to remove toxins and the milk acids smoothes and soothes. Champagne is chock full of antioxidants that help prevent free radicals from damaging our skin. Champagne also contains Tartaric Acid which is an ingredient commonly used to lighten skin. Since there is no preservative in the recipe, if there is any left over, store it in the fridge to help prevent growth and rancidity. Shelf life is approximately 2 weeks when stored in the refrigerator.
