September 30th National Mud Pack Day

Do people actually use mud packs anymore as a part of their beauty regimen? There was a time when it was all the rage but I really don’t hear about people using it all that much anymore. I assume that people heard somewhere about using mud to help remove bee and wasp stings, helping to get stinger out. It’s natural to assume that if it can remove the stinger from skin it can remove other impurities from your skin. Well whether you use mud packs or not, today is the day to celebrate that use. If you don’t use mud to make yourself beautiful, maybe it’s time to give it a try!

How to celebrate – Use a mud mask. Do you need clean dirt to make a mud mask? If it works for your face, shouldn’t you try using a mud mask on your body?

September 30th National Mud Pack Day

Mud… well, it’s always been there so humans had to find uses for it. It has always been good for minor skin issues, like bee stings and some rashes. (It also causes some rashes) It has been used to build walls since when it dries, it’s pretty strong. It’s used in combat to make soldiers invisible to the enemy and, of course, it’s something fun for kids to play in. However, someone figured out that it was really good to put all over your face to refresh your skin and open your pores. My guess is, some soldier came away from battle covered in mud and when he washed it off he must have remarked how beautiful he felt. From there, it got passed on to civilians who agreed once they tried it. Now it is a regular facial component. Naturally you need to use clean mud.

How to celebrate – Try a mud pack facial. Go outside and play in the mud. Make some mud pies!
