National Mud Pack Day

When : September 30th

National Mud Pack Day is today. Pile on the facial. Ladies, this is your day. Guys, you can get a mud pack facial, too. Just don't let your buddies know that you did!!

Mud packs were once the rage for facial treatments. It is still popular. But, the mud in facials has been replaced with a variety of other ingredients. It is supposed to keep the skin young, soft and supple. Does it work? Girls who use it, swear by it.

Did you know? A mud pack is a quick treatment for bee stings. Use it, if needed, when you are out on a hike, or until you can get to a place to be treated for bee and wasp stings.

Celebrate today with a mud pack. Guys, make this a special day by buying a gift certificate for a facial for your special lady. Make sure to tell her its not that she needs it. Rather, its because it is comforting, and will make her feel good.

Origin of National Mud Pack Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.

We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation. However, we suspect somewhere along the way, this day came up for debate. At times, there certainly is a lot of mud slinging in the Congress and the Senate.
