Homemade Avocado Face Mask
Avocados are delicious, nutritious, and bursting with skin-boosting vitamins and minerals that nourish and revitalize the skin from the outside in. These avocado face masks are simple to make, and this particular recipe is perfect for dry and acne prone skin, as it restores the skins natural PH balance and fights bacteria:
- ½ ripe avocado – mashed to a smooth paste
- 1 teaspoon of natural honey
- 1 teaspoon of plain yogurt
Simply mix the above ingredients into a smooth paste before applying to clean dry skin for a recommended 15 minutes. Once it has dried, rinse gently with lukewarm water, pat your face dry with a fluffy towel and admire your radiant glow!
Homemade Oatmeal Body Scrub
One of the easiest ways to brighten tired looking skin is with an exfoliating body scrub. It is made from natural ingredients such as oatmeal, sugar, and tropical treasure coconut. Gentle on the skin and highly effective at removing those dead skin cells that can leave us looking tired and pale. This homemade body scrub will leave your skin feeling refreshed and silky smooth.
- 6 tablespoons of natural oatmeal
- 6 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1 teaspoon of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional)
Before mixing all the ingredients together, ground the oatmeal in a blender or food processor to create a grainy powder. Then add the brown sugar and mix, before slowly adding the honey and coconut oil to create a paste. We like to add a splash of vanilla extract for its dreamy fragrance, but it is an optional ingredient. Use to gently scrub the entire body (avoiding the delicate eye area) before rinsing with warm water to reveal the beautiful skin below.
Homemade Anti-Wrinkle Face Mask
Love them or hate them, wrinkles come to us all eventually, but it is possible to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without going under the knife, or resorting to Botox! This homemade anti-wrinkle face mask is enriched with bananas (nature’s secret anti-aging ingredient), vitamin C rich orange juice to boost collagen production and fight free radicals, and natural organic yogurt to soothe, restore and rejuvenate.
- 1 ripe banana – mashed
- 1 teaspoon of natural organic yogurt
- 1 tablespoon of natural orange juice
Blend the ingredients together in a mixing bowl to create a smooth face mask. Apply to the face and neck with your fingers, and leave it to work its magic for at least 15 minutes… Sit somewhere peaceful, think happy thoughts, and resist the urge to lick your cheeks! Rinse away with warm water, pat your face dry, and admire your handy work. Go on, admit it, you look fabulous!
