I had to close up shop today due to a rare winter ice storm, and spent an hour this morning calling and rescheduling client appointments. "But I need you," groused one of my clients, "My face hurts so much from winter dryness and I don't know what to do about it."

I gave her a quick and easy recipe for a facial masque that anyone can make using simple ingredients from the kitchen. It's super-nourishing during harsh winter weather. This masque can be used year round by anyone with consistently dry skin.

Aromatic Avocado Masque

1 ripe avocado
1 teaspoon honey
1-2 drops palmarosa essential oil 

Peel, seed and mash the avocado. Add honey and essential oil, mixing thoroughly. Apply the mixture to the face and décolletage. Leave on for approximately 20 minutes, then wash off with warm water. Repeat twice weekly for best results.
