Face Mask Friday: July's Full Moon Facial

I like to think of the Full Moon as a big bright reminder for self-care. It seems like someone's always blaming some-sorta chaos on the full moon, haha. But like many things in our lives, we get to define what this time means to us. For me, it's a beautiful time to reflect on the intentions I set during the new moon phase and celebrate how far I've come. And yup, you've probably already guessed it, this week, we're celebrating by setting some time aside for a bit of self-care with an at-home facial recipe you have to try.
