Summer Mask

Whether your skin is dry from too much sun and wind or oily from too much perspiration, a herbal face mask can help restore balance.

Add a tablespoon or so of an infusion of cleansing, soothing, and/or softening herbs like chamomile flowers, sage leaf, or yarrow flowers to about half a cup of a kitchen staple that will nourish, tone and hydrate—like yogurt, honey, or egg yolk. Spread on face and neck, avoiding eyes. Leave the mask on about 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse well and pat dry. If your skin is very oily, you may want to add the infusion to clay rather than a moisturizing base. Just use the infusion rather than water to moisten the dry clay before applying.

Ask the Experts

What's an Herbal Infusion?
Many natural skin and hair care recipes call for an herbal infusion, which is basically a strong herbal tea. To make one, pour boiling water over the herbs (about one ounce of herb per one pint of water, but it needn’t be exact) and steep, covered, for about 15 to 30
minutes. Strain.

Herbal Spritzer

Pour two cups of boiling water over two tablespoons of refreshing herbs, like peppermint leaf, rosemary leaf, yarrow flowers, or calendula flowers. Steep for about 15 minutes, then strain into a spritzer bottle. Spray your face (closing and avoiding your eyes) whenever you need refreshing. Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar for toning, if you like, and store your spritzer in the refrigerator for extra pick-me-up.
