I always love a good Sunday beauty ritual for skin and hair and recently I've been counting down the days until I can make my avocado face mask again, because I love the way your skin feels and glows afterwards.
Avocados are incredibly good for your skin because of their fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins. They are able to regenerate, protect, moisturise and hydrate your skin.
Raw honey is great for clarifying your skin by opening pores and it’s antibacterial which is great to fight off any external agents.
Lemon on the other hand is known to tighten skin and I love the freshness it gives you!
Makes 1 mask:
1 tbsp raw/organic honey
1/4 juice of a lemon
blend everything together or alternatively mash everything together and mix with a spoon.
Apply on your rinsed face and leave to set for 10-15 mins.
It’s ideal after a nice brown sugar scrub - this will leave your skin in the best shape ever!!!
Let's be real, during and after summer you stop doing face scrubs because you don't want to scrub off your tan. Or is that just me? (Please don't leave me hanging!)
Instead of using a hard sugar based scrub I now use a gentle oat-based exfoliator for the lighter months!
Buying good scrubs in the shop often costs a lot of money and is full of chemicals which can sometimes make you feel like you're hurting your skin more than you're helping it... Try a natural one with just 4 simple ingredients that will leave you feeling refreshed and with really deeply soft, gently moisturised skin.
This exfoliator contains coconut oil, which really moisturises the skin and kills acne-causing bacteria, lime helps to clear the skin and pores and adds such a great freshness especially combined with mint!
1 handful oats
1 tbsp of melted (or soft) coconut oil
juice of 1 lime
3 mint leaves very thinly chopped
You will have to use this scrub straight after making it or the oats will become too soggy!
Remove all your make up and wash your face with water.
Mix all of the ingredients together and start gently rubbing it onto your face.
When you are done wash your face with warm water et voilà hello healthy glow...
