I’ve already thanked God for Morocco producing argan oil but another wonderful invention is the Moroccan hammam. Visiting a hammam and getting yourself scrubbed until your skin’s as smooth as a baby are one of the finer luxuries in life and if you’re in London, chances are you’ll have to cough up a lot of money for the treatment but for just £3.95 and however much you pay for your water bill, you can bring a hammam all the way from the hot climes of Morocco to good old Blighty thanks to LUSH’s Glorious Mud!
The LUSH Glorious Mud is a good old block of rhassoul clay, vanilla, sesame oil, sweet orange and aloe vera to soften the skin. When I’m using this, I’ll have a shower or bath with seriously warm water to get the bathroom all steamy and allow the steam to penetrate into the skin. Then, I just run the Glorious Mud under the tap for only a few seconds and just rub it all over the skin including my face a circular motion until it’s well covered. I’ll just sit around for 10 minutes until the mask’s dried and then rinse off. The magical part is when you wash it off, your skin has this smoothness to it and a very subtle vanilla and orange scent!
