What You'll Do

Andrea Mattson has a DIY attitude when it comes to most everything, especially if seasonal ingredients are involved. Learn her all-natural skincare secrets during this spring-themed workshop, which starts with a refreshing honey-infused mask. Andrea then shows you how to transform natural, easy-to-find ingredients into different types of skincare remedies, from deodorant to moisturizing hand salve.

  • Pamper Yourself with a Mask
    The workshop begins with a detoxifying clay mask that's made with local honey.

  • Learn to Mix Natural Skincare Items
    Andrea demonstrates how to create custom toners to balance pH, and then shows you how to mix three spring-themed products: lavender-scented deodorant, moisturizing hand salve, and a hair rinse made with nettles and dried sage.

  • Take-Home Products
    Leave the workshop with concocting knowledge and a sampling of natural skincare products. Be sure to bring along three small bottles or jars (2–5 ounces each) with lids.
