Today I want to share two recipes that will make hosting a spa party simple and doable.
You can use both, or even just one. As you know, getting-together is half the fun.
These recipes are so simple, you can make them ahead of time, or have your party guests help put them together after they arrive.
Use a facial mask to help remove dead skin cells and brighten skin. Plus, it's just fun to laugh at one another with a mask on your face!
White cosmetic clay (also known as kaolin clay) – I chose this because it is suitable for all skin types.
Water, chamomile hydrosol, or yogurt (choose one, or a combination)
Measure 1 tablespoon of clay per person into a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of liquid per person and stir to make a paste. If it is too runny, ass a little more clay. If too dry, add extra liquid (just a little as time).

To use: apply to clean skin with fingers or a makeup brush. Let sit for 10-15 minutes. Wash off with warm water and a washcloth.
Basic Sugar Scrub – for hands
A simple hand scrub will give everyone softer, smoother skin.
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup almond or grapeseed oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Stir all ingredients together.
To use: rub a few teaspoons of scrub between hands getting the back off the hands as well. Wash off with warm water.
This recipe should produce enough for 12-15 people.
These two recipes will form the base of a fun spa night. Add extras like hair treatments or foot soaks to round out the evening.
