Friday September 30, 2016 is Mud Pack Day.

“Mud has been known to have health properties for a very long time, and has been a popular way of sustaining beauty and staving off old age. No, we’re not talking about the mud you can find in the mud puddles after a heavy rain, nor the clay down at your local riverside, though we could be! You’d be surprised where some of the beauty products come from that can stave off old age and leave you looking amazing. There’s even hot mud pits, like hot springs, that people visit to sit in and enjoy the health and beauty benefits of nature’s own spa.

The use of mud for therapeutic and beauty purposes can be traced back to the 16th century during the Renaissance. Baths were considered to be of such import that the proper way to bathe for therapeutic purposes was considered to be the province of a physician. During the bathing process people would be bathed, purged, packed in mud, and then sent into a bath to wash off the therapeutic mud.

So ubiquitous was the use of mud for healing purposes that it was often used to treat humans and animals alike. A total of 78 different conditions were listed during this time that could benefit from bathing.

This practice carried on into the 19th and 20th centuries, and further refinements were made to the entire process. Rather than bathing in mud, it was during this period that the mud pack first came into existence as a concept all its own.

Celebrating this day is as simple as a trip to your local spa, let them take the time to treat you to a beautiful experience that will leave your skin feeling clear and beautiful. You can even make a full day of it with you and your friends, and don’t forget to invite the men along! Don’t have a spa nearby? Drop by your local beauty store and pick up a bunch of supplies to do it yourself at home! What’s more fun than a “pamper yourself” day with you and your friends?” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/nw6sK
