Excerpt

Banana and Chickpea Protein Mask

Chickpea flour has many advantages: it's an effective skin-toning exfoliator, it stimulates circulation and it rejuvenates tissues. Bananas, rich in potassium and vitamin A, are natural emollients and help reduce redness and puffiness. The egg in this mask will tighten pores and leave your skin feeling revitalized.

Recipe:

4 tablespoons chickpea flour

1 ripe banana, peeled and mashed

1 egg, beaten

In a bowl, blend chickpea flour and ripe banana into a paste. Add beaten egg and apply mixture to face and neck. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse well with warm water, Pat dry,

Citrus and Milk Bath

Cleopatra was famous for bathing in milk and soothing her skin with milk's natural beauty--enhancing properties. Rich in protein, calcium and vitamins, milk is easily absorbed by the skin, leaving it smooth and moisturized. It also helps ease nervous tension and restlessness. The lavendar and citrus peel in this bath formula stimulate the circulatory system and add a wonderfully luxuriant aroma to the treatment.

Recipe:

1 cup dried milk powder (if you have oily skin, use nonfat milk)

1/4 cup orange peels

1/4 cup lemon peels

4 drops lavendar essential oil

Draw a warm bath and while water is flowing slowing add dried milk, orange and lemon peels and lavendar oil. Soak for 20 minutes. Pat dry and moisturize.

Herbal Foot Soaks

Simple to prepare, herbal soaks are ideal for tired feet. Choose from one or more of the following herbs to custom blend an aromatic bath: comfrey, elderberry, horsetail, lavendar, pine, rosemary and sage.

Recipe:

2 cups fresh herbs or 1 cup dried herbs

2 gallons boiling water

Steep herbs in water for 20 minutes. Strain liquid and pour into a foot basin. Soak feet for 20 minutes and pat dry,
