3 DIY Exfoliating Facial Masks

Exfoliating is one of the most important steps when it comes to skincare. As we age, the skin doesn't naturally exfoliate as often, so it needs a little help. The immediate benefit to exfoliating is that it removes dead skin and encourages skin cell renewal, for younger looking skin. If you incorporate an exfoliating scrub into your skincare regimen once a week, the long term benefits include a reduction of dark spots, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. Best of all, with regular at-home exfoliation, you don't need to spend a lot of money on expensive microdermabrasion treatments. With these easy-to-make DIY masks, you'll enjoy glowing, younger-looking skin with the added bonus of a fun and relaxing #selfcaresunday.

I've created three different DIY exfoliating masks to meet different skincare needs and to match different skin types. Each mask is formulated with an essential oil to enhance those skincare benefits. Though you could omit them and just use the first two ingr…

Snapshots from My Week


I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and are looking forward to Christmas as much as I am.:) I enjoyed two Thanksgiving dinners this year, and they were both equally delicious. For the month of December, my family has several fun things planned, so that will mean more and more lovely pics to share both here on the blog and on Instagram. If you have a lifestyle instagram page to share, please leave it in the comments below, so I can check it out. Happy Holidays! :)


Most of these shots are from Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, OK. They host a gingerbread display, decorated Christmas trees, and a beautiful light display in their outdoor gardens this time of year. I've been there twice this holiday season, with my special someone pictured above :), and definitely plan to post more pics that I took with my better camera.


Part of the gingerbread houses that are on display (and up for auction) at Philbrook, this gingerbread tree house was one of my favorites. I love how they used a green gummi ring to make a mini wreath. I am definitely going to use that idea.


My girls got a head start on Christmas cookies with some gingerbread men on Thanksgiving. I love to bake and make homemade Christmas cookies every year, but for those busier days when the kids are out of school, God bless those prepackaged gingerbread kits!


The Thanksgiving dinner I cooked for was filled with my sweet and savory turkey, homemade cranberry sauce, a few classic sides, and some very yummy desserts. I took down new recipes for mini cranberry pies, a sangria-wine cranberry sauce, my cranberry-spice layer cake, and a pecan pie that was by far the biggest hit. I'll share all of those recipes here on the site before Christmas.
