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…

Our Best St. Patrick's Day Recipes

http://www.glorioustreats.com/2012/03/shamrock-cut-out-cupcakes.html

I've done a few St. Patrick's Day recipe round ups over the years, and they always go crazy right about now, naturally, particularly the green-colored dessert posts. Though I have quite a few more, from Bailey's Irish Cream desserts to a few St. Patrick's Day dinner menus. If you need to plan a St. Patrick's Day feast this week, all you need are these yummy recipe guides. Pictured: Shamrock Cut-Out Cupcakes by Glorious Treats


1. Green-Colored Desserts for St. Patrick's Day
This particular post gets the most hits out of all of my St. Patrick's day guides, mostly thanks to the Green Candied Popcorn by Skip to My Lou. It's been repinned tens of thousands of times. Clearly people love that popcorn. Pictured: St. Patrick's Day Cake from Twig and Thistle

2. 25 Green-Colored Desserts for St. Patrick's Day
This is another great round up of green-colored desserts, like chocolate-mint cupcakes, green velvet cheesecake, and many others. Pictured: Dark Chocolate Creme de Menthe Cupcakes by Love & Olive Oil

3. Bailey's Irish Cream Desserts
For something more grown-up (and delicious) skip the green desserts for something flavored with Bailey's Irish Cream, like Irish Cream Cupcakes or Bailey's Pistachio Fudge. Yum! Pictured: Baileys Irish Cream Cookies by The Buttercream Blondie

4. Shamrock-Shaped Party Food
The more obvious choice for St. Patrick's Day party food focuses not only on the color green but also  on incorporating the clover shape. I totally love this idea, because anyone (regardless of time or cooking skills) can easily make something like the shamrock ships with a simple clover cookie cutterPictured: Shamrock Chips with Dip by Zakka Life

5. Traditional Irish Dinner Menu on a Budget
This is one of my personal favorites on the blog, because it features more traditional Irish dishes, like Shepherd's Pie, Irish Soda Bread, and a yummy Irish Apple Cake. Pictured: Shepherd's Pie via The Brown Eyed Baker / recipe originally from The Country Cooking of Ireland by Colman Andrews

When in doubt, just make corned-beef brisket and drink some green beer. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
