DIY Detoxing Facial Mask

DIY Detoxing Facial Mask

DIY Detoxing Facial Mask


This detoxing facial mask uses natural ingredients to pull out the impurities from your skin leaving you clean.

Why make your own facial mask?

Going to the spa is expensive. You don’t have to waste your time and money when you can make a simple mixture at home.

You can even throw a Spa Party with your friends and make your own at home spa treatments. It would be a fun way to visit with each other and save money.

This facial mask would be a deep cleaning detox. You probably would want to test it on a small spot before applying to your entire face just in case you may have a reaction. Also this is a pretty deep cleaning detox, I would only do it once a week or every other week.

Great for applying directly to pimples. 




The Ingredients:


Charcoal is estimated to absorb up to 60% of organic toxins, chemicals and poisons. I use it to help whiten my teeth naturally. 

This ingredient is great for pulling out the oil and dirt in your pores.

Why I love Mountain Meadow Herbs (and you should too!)

Why I love Mountain Meadow Herbs Grassfed Mama

Why I love Mountain Meadow Herbs

and you should too!

I learned about Mountain Meadow Herbs when I was pregnant. I was looking for some natural ways to supplement and I knew that liquid herbs were some of the best ways to increase vitamins and minerals in terms of absorption and safety.

I used Mountain Meadow Herbs’ Gentle birth formula during the last weeks of pregnancy to prepare my body for labor. I had an amazing natural labor. It was fast – only about 2.5 hours. I was only in pain for about 10 minutes during the pushing phase. I highly recommend trying their formula if you are considering a natural labor.

I fell in love with Mountain Meadow Herbs and their products so much, I decided to become an affiliate. Read more about what Mountain Meadow Herbs has to offer you.

Here is a message from Mountain Meadow Herbs: 

As we become more and more aware of what we put into our body these days, people have begun to question the sense of processed and refined products. Are we losing valuable benefits? Are things being added that actually harm, rather than help us?


Getting to know the products you and your family use on a daily basis is not restricted to granola bars and laundry detergent. Herbal supplements are becoming increasingly popular as a way to improve well being naturally.  One might easily think that because a supplement is made of herbs, it couldn’t get much more natural.  However, just like many other products claiming to be ‘natural’, there are often hidden ingredients or fillers that can do more bad than good.


The following are a few basic tips to keep in mind when choosing an herbal supplement:



Just like the food you buy, be sure to take a peek at the list of ingredients. Stay away from supplements that contain any unpronounceable additives, fillers or preservatives.  Another common sense key to how beneficial the product is: how long is the ingredient list? As with most of the things you put in your body, choose the one with the shortest, most recognizable list of ingredients.



In other words, what was it before it was made into a supplement? How much of it is natural plant matter? Kathy Garber, herbalist and founder of Mountain Meadow Herbs often asks the question, “Is it a food I would place on the dinner table? A good example is Coral Calcium. We don’t cook and eat coral reef, so taking coral calcium as a supplement doesn’t make a lot of sense.”



What was the process of making the supplement? Was excessive heat used?

Was it tested for contaminates such as heavy metals? Was there a large amount of processing that went into the production of the pill, tonic, or patch? In short, the brand name should be a trusted one, willing to share this information with the consumer.



How different is the supplement from the plants that it originally came from? Most herbs contain beneficial compounds that complement each other, and can aid in their effectiveness. “For example, whole Milk Thistle seed would be a better choice over one that contains a certain percentage of slymarin,” explains Garber, “as there may be components within the whole Milk Thistle that make it more beneficial”.



Like any other product we put into our body, it is important to pay attention to the packaging it comes in. Many plastics contain chemicals such as BPA, which is known to disrupt estrogen levels, possibly cause cancer, and lead to brain and behavioral problems.  A glass container is generally a safe bet when choosing a supplement.



The ultimate test is simply a personal trial and error. Everyone’s body responds differently, so what works for someone else, may not have the same or as intense of an effect on you. Try a product and ask yourself, did the product make a difference in 1-3 months? Did it live up to the results the brand promised? If not, than perhaps it is not the right product for your needs.

7 Steps to Detox

Holidays are wonderful: seeing family, relaxing in the living room, gathering around the table…. The downside is the extra 5 pounds that also come with all that gathering and eating. Sometimes you just need an easy detox plan to clear our your system.

Now that the holidays are over, it is time to get back to reality and back on track. 

Here is my personal plan to detox and help my body recover from the sugar overload and splurges.

1) Sip on detoxing drinks

I’m going to nourish my body with some drinks full of antioxidants and vitamins to help my body detox. I really love to drink Greens to help me detox naturally with 38 superfoods. It has helped me with sugar cravings and it tastes like berries! I share more here about How I get 8 Servings of Fruits and Vegetables daily when I drink Greens.


2) Take Probiotics

Probiotics are micro-organism that are naturally found in your digestive tract to help you digest the food you eat. In our current culture, we don’t eat enough foods rich in probiotics to keep the balance of healthy organism in check. I recommend this probiotic because it contains 5 different strains and 10 billion cultures for your small and large intestine. What I have learned is that you are only as healthy as your gut, so take care of it and give it what it needs 🙂

3) Epsom Salt Baths

Adding an epsom salt bath to your weekly routine will help your body detox. This type of bath is great for increasing magnesium absorption which is a natural detoxing mineral. If you don’t like baths, try just a foot soak! I also add a few drops of Lavender and Tea Tree Oil to the Bath Salts too.

 4) Focus on Low Carb, High Fat

Over the past few weeks, I have indulged in way too many sugars. So, my body needs to be nourished by healthy fats like coconut oil. By eating low carb, my body will be able to use the extra sugar in my cells and get cleaned out. I’m going to eat more eggs cooked in coconut oil for breakfast to start out my day. This will fuel my body with healthy protein and fats, leaving me satisfied.

5) Eat more vegetables

We know that vegetables are good for us, that isn’t new information. I’m going to focus on eating more salads this week to increase my vegetable intake. Also, as mentioned above, I drink Greens which is an easy way to get in 8 servings of fruits and vegetables in just 2 tiny scoops of powder.


6) Sweat

Sweating is one of our body’s natural detox methods. I haven’t been very active the past few weeks, so I’d like to get back into a solid workout routine. I’m hoping to break a good sweat 3 days a week and then do some weight lifting with my kettle bell to strengthen my muscles.

7) Cleanse

When my body is running sluggish, I know that I need to do a cleanse and help me reboot. Here is my favorite 2 day Cleanse and why I love it:

It Works! Cleanse is a gentle two-day herbal cleanse that helps your body reset and rebalance itself so you can feel and look your best!  Formulated with two proprietary blends to work with your body to help remove toxins while delivering essential nutrients and vitamins,* It Works! Cleanse provides a powerful cleanse without the harsh effects other cleanses can cause.

    New You New Years! Increasing Water


    New You New Years Week One: Increasing Your Water

    You made it to the first week of New You New Years!  This week we are going to focus on increasing your water intake. 

    Last week we focused on awareness: Being mindful in what you are eating. Thinking about what you are feeding your body is the first step to changing your habits. Did you pick up on anything you need to change already???

    During New You New Years, we are going to take baby steps each week so you can be a Trim Healthy Mama!

    To increase our water intake, this could include drinking more water, tea, or fruit infused waters. My favorite way to drink tea is in Trim Healthy Mama apple pie sips. These are amazing!! I love them so much during these cold winter months when drinking a cold glass of water isn’t as appealing.

    My sister and her husband really like to drink sparkling water.

    Another tip is adding a little lemon to water with some stevia – a very simple lemonade! Adding lemon to your water also increases your vitamin C intake, which is great in these winter months for keeping you well and helps detox your liver!  I made some really good pomegranate tea over Thanksgiving and sweetened it with some stevia for a real treat. Fruit infused water is easy to make too!

    I really love drinking Greens in my water. It is an easy was to get in 38 superfoods and PLUS increase the water that I need too! I have a Probiotic that have helped a lot as well 🙂

    Something I’ve been trying more recently is doing fruit infusions in my water, it adds great taste and is really simple if you use an Infusion Pitcher, here’s the one I prefer!

    By drinking more water, you will help your body stay full. Sometimes when we feel the urge to eat, we really are just thirsty. Drinking Water is also good for constipation. Did you know that if you aren’t having a bowel movement at least ONCE a day (and 3x a day is the recommended amount)  then you are constipated??? (cue music: The More you Knooooooooow!)

    Summary: New You New Years Week 1: Increase your water!
