Today’s ‘Mudd Day’ actually commemorates the birth date of Dr. Samuel Mudd, who became notorious when he offered medical aid to John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of President Abraham Lincoln. And while the spelling is different, I would like to use these energies to offer an easy recipe for a clarifying and toning facial mud mask that will keep you from getting your hands dirty like the doctor. The ingredients include one tablespoon of clay powder (available from health food stores), one egg yolk, one-half mashed avocado and a bit of witch hazel. Mix all ingredients together until the mud is a smooth texture. Apply for 20 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water. Pat dry and knock ’em dead.
