My brother and his wife just left town, and while they were here, we did some pretty epic baking. We also did some pretty epic eating.

So in between all of the eating and baking, my sister-in-law and I did some exercising and got to chatting about the things that we do to counteract these occasional meal splurges.

Both of us have been making a concerted effort to to cut out most of the junk that we put into our bodies by eating more whole foods lately, including lots of organic fruits, vegetables, dairy, and meat.

But then we got to talking about the tings that we put onto our bodies, like deodorant, moisturizer, and makeup.

I love a good face mask, and I had been wanting to try one with Stonyfield Greek yogurt and rosewater for a while now. So when she mentioned that her friend uses a paste of baking soda and water as a face scrub, I thought it would be a fun addition to a homemade face mask.

There’s just something about a face mask that feels special. This one in particular is nice because the cold yogurt feels really refreshing on your face, and the baking soda makes it light and fluffy. It almost has a whipped texture that feels really great while you’re applying it.

The little bit of rose water adds just a hint of fragrance that really brought the spa feeling right to my own home.

We experimented with a few different formulations of this face mask before settling on this one. Any more baking soda and it’s a little too abrasive. None at all and we weren’t sure it was doing much for us.

We also determined that 5 minutes was a good amount of time for this to feel refreshing enough while still being able to rinse it off easily. Any longer and it dries more and will need to be scrubbed a bit harder.

Plus, trial and error meant extra spa treatments this past weekend.

I’ve been a fan of Tom’s of Maine for quite some time now. I’m typically very sensitive to artificial fragrances, and their deodorants and antiperspirants are made without them. They smell good without being overpowering or irritating my skin.

I had wisdom tooth surgery a few weeks ago, so the Rapid Relief Sensitive Toothpaste has been fantastic! I like that it’s fluoride-free and leaves me fresh and minty. They have lots of different types of oral care items for kids and adults to take care of all sorts of dental needs.

Tom’s of Maine also takes a really thoughtful approach to how they select the ingredients that go into their products. It’s nice to be able to identify the items that are being used in products before actually using them. Again, I try to avoid putting a lot of junk in my body – why would I want to put it on my body?

I really appreciate that they don’t use animal testing or animal ingredients, and are transparent about their goals for ingredients, waste, packaging, energy, water, giving back, employee health & volunteering.

It can take a while to revamp your routine to include less artificial ingredients, but it’s definitely something worth working on. Every little bit helps!

Back to the face mask. It was a big hit at home, and it’s something that both me and my sister-in-law plan to incorporate into our routines.

It uses ingredients that I always have on hand, so I really could make it any time. I’m also looking forward to trying it with the whole milk Greek yogurt to see if it’s even more moisturizing.
