We’re always thinking of methods of utilizing everything we have available to really bring out the best of us….We have to admit, we love skincare products, but truth be told, they can really add up and be quiet expensive. So we turn to our kitchens to really get the benefits we need. Inexpensive, super easy and effective ; taking a natural approach to skincare is not only healthier but it saves us a lot of cash.
With the current cold weather, our skin can get dry and dull. We need to nourish and really hydrate our skin, to protect it from the harsh weather . The following Rejuvenating Honey Carrot Mask is great for women and men wit normal to dry skin (if you have mild acne and feel that your skin is beyond dry you can definitely incorporate this mask into your skin care regimen just make sure to diminish the amount of olive oil used)
Carrots are high in beta carotene and vitamin A and have long been known to provide soothing moisture and a fresh glow to parched complexions.
Honey as we all well know is an antiseptic, it’s antibacterial and antifungal.
Olive Oil Contains Vitamin E, helps reverse sun damage and is beyond nourishing and moisturizing.
The Goal: Healthy Glowy Skin.
1 clean( take the skin off) boiled/steamed carrot.
1 1/2 tablespoon of honey
½ tablespoon of olive oil
(These ingredients contain vitamins such as C, E, A, B. The skin nourishing minerals in these ingredients are calcium, iron and phosphorus. There are even natural moisturizers, antibacterial, anti -fungal and antiviral properties in the mask)
Do it yourself:
In a small bowl mash the boiled/steamed( we prefer steamed) carrot.
Mix the carrot puree with honey and olive oil, until you create a smooth paste.
Apply the mask on fresh/clean skin, avoiding the under eye area.
Leave the mask on for 10 to 15 minutes. When done, rinse off with warm water ( dry with a clean tissue by simply patting or let your skin air dry) then follow up with your regular moisturizer.
You can do this once a week to nourish, treat and pamper your skin. The effects will be instantly visible; balanced, glowy and healthy skin.
