Sunbathing, air conditioning, and temperature changes can all put a little extra stress on your skin, so in addition to wearing protective creams and a hat when you're out in the sun, here are a few recipes you can use at home to provide a little extra nourishment for your skin. Enjoy!

A Cooling and Soothing Foot Mask
Your feet can be the most neglected part of the body - we tend not to think of them until they start to hurt! For those days when your feet need some indulgence, apply the following mask to clean feet.
- ¼-cup pineapple flesh
- 2-t chopped peppermint leaves
- 1-t chopped fresh basil
- 2-T rosemary leaves
- 1 drop cinnamon oil
- 5 drops of peppermint essential oil
Mix all ingredients together in blender for 45 seconds. Apply to tops and soles of feet. Wrap feet in plastic wrap, raise them on a pillow, and relax for 10 minutes. Rinse well with cool water.
