Ready for great fun and some lustrous happy feet pampering in the privacy of your own home? Use a "Face Pack" for the ENTIRE BODY.
Get Ready: You’ll need a comfy robe, turban and open slippers (optional, but lots of fun). Also: towels, washcloths, dishes, access to bathroom and kitchen sinks, etc.
Make sure you have a Lustrous Henna ® Face & Body Mask pack available. If you want to add a pack of great-smelling Lustrous Henna® Orange Peel Powder, that’s an option too. Remember: a little goes a long way and you should have enough for several “happy feet” evenings.
Appeal to the senses and create a spa-like atmosphere
Music: nature sounds like the ocean, trickling brooks, soft classical music or some cool jazz. Lightly scented candles or essential oil simmering in water on stovetop or oil burner are aromatic and heighten the senses. A glass of good wine or a cocktail can help create a pair of very happy feet too!
Foot Mask Pedicure
“Happy Feet”workout: Take a golf ball and rub it around the foot, concentrating on the arch andsides; or set a smooth river rock on carpeting and walk on the stone for a few minutes. If you have enough smooth rocks, you can also add them to a basin filled with warm Lustrous Henna® Soapnut (Reetha Fruit) Powder /water solution. Rub your feet back and forth on the stones. All workouts are soothing and massage the feet.
Exfoliate and cleanse: Fill large dishpan, bucket or whatever will fit your tootsies with warm Lustrous Henna® Soapnut (Reetha Fruit) Powder /water solution. Soak feet for several minutes. Using a pumice stone (or similar item), scrub calluses off heels. Rinse, then pat dry.
Apply mask: Apply to entire foot up to ankles. After 15-30 minutes, remove mask by rinsing feet in same container, replaced with clean water. After removing foot mask, if you want to proceed with toenail manicure, do so. Gently rub feet in favorite natural skin oil; pat dry. Be gentle!
The Face and Body mask is hands down my favorite product. Many of you know that I’m a spa brat. You can rub me down with just about anything at a spa-mud, seaweed, chocolate, blueberries- I’ve done it all. This is one of the best facial masks I have ever tried.It mixes with water and apply the paste. I left it on for about an hour and then washed off. You can feel it tightening on your face and your face just lifting. It is the cheapest facelift you will ever get! After I washed it off I noticed an immediate glow and smoothness to my face. My skin seemed to be much more even-shaded and just wonderful. And, since I only used it on my face, I only used needed asmall amount of the package. So... I could get 3-4 facials; that is my idea of home economics!
