A DIY Facemask So Fresh You Could Eat
You can get yourself some beautiful, vibrant looking skin without spending a fortune!? Sign me up. During my pregnancy, I have been having some super dry, red skin days and it really isn't suiting me. No like. The other day, I started playing around in my kitchen and whipped up a little something that helped to soothe and moisturize, and I want to share with you the creation that saved my face. *Just PLEASE make sure to spot test before you smear things all over your face as you never know when food allergies may appear or if something just isn't right for you.
1 Teaspoon Raw Unpasteurized Honey Honey is legit the bees knees. Loaded with magical healing vitamins and enzymes, as well being naturally antibacterial, honey will help clear up your skin, leaving it more moisturized and glowy, while tightening pores.
2 Tablespoons Plain Greek Yogurt Yogurt contains lactic acidic that will dissolve dead skin cells. This lactic acid assists in naturally exfoliating the skin, helps to diminish fine lines, discoloration and wrinkles and aids in calming rosacea, sunburns and/or breakouts...all of which will keep your baby face shining through.
1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil Coconut oil will bring life back into your face by moisturizing and rehydrating dry, depletad skin. The fatty acids in coconut oil lend to it's disinfectant and antibacterial properties that protect the skin from infection and help to clear up acne. Because it is loaded with Vitamin E, it will smooth skin and help to prevent wrinkles and premature aging. (sidenote: you can also remove your makeup naturally with coconut oil!)
1 half Avocado The antioxidants in avocados protect your skin against free radicals, and promote it's elasticity and firmness. Avocados also contain biotin which tones down red, flaky skin. The healthy fat in avocados protect your skin from sun damage and inflammation. All hail the avocado!
- Take your honey, yogurt, coconut oil and avocado and mash it all together. I used a food processor just so that it would be whipped real good.
- Once it is of a nice consistency, use the tips of your fingers to massage the light green creation all over your face, while gently pressing it in to invigorate circulation. Make sure to get under your eyes and on your neck.
- Leave the mask on for 20-30 minutes and remove with warm water and a washcloth.
Voila! Smoother, softer, more moisturized skin.
