I had a nice chat with Piggy today. We discussed skin care, how she does it and tips for how you can too! Here is how the conversation went:
Me: Hello Piggy! Come over here and share what you’ve learned about skin care! You must have secrets, your skin is so soft!
Piggy: It’s easy! Oink! I roll in the mud!
Me: It’s the mud you say? Tell us why!
Piggy: Mud can help improve your overall complexion! Mud is used to clarify the skin by absorbing toxins, shrinking the appearance of pores, tightening, smoothing, cleansing and softening the skin! These benefits result in a brighter and healthier complexion.
Me: Can we use any type of mud? I mean, can I go out to my garden and gather mud to slather on?
Piggy: No, that’s how I do it but you should purchase a mud mask (budget and luxury lines available!) or visit a spa to receive a mud treatment! Some spas even offer mud pools to submerge yourself in! “Clean” mud is safer!
Me: Can I use it all over my body?
Piggy: Yes! Mud is an excellent detox for the whole body!
Me: How often should I do a mud mask? Certainly not daily like you!
Piggy: Once a week is great! Try applying before you meditate or sit down to read. I like to get covered in mud and take a 10 minute power nap. Then you can take a warm shower to rinse it away.
Me: Are there any other benefits to our health that we can expect?
Piggy: Yes! Mud has anti-inflammatory properties that help in relieving body aches. This is why I love to cover my whole body with it!
I ended my conversation with Piggy as others were waiting to get a photo with her and it’s no doubt why, she was simply glowing from head to hooves…must be the mud. Now, I’m off to get a mud facial! You should do the same!
