Avocado Lemon mask

YOU’VE GOT FOOD ON YOUR FACE!

Your skin is your body’s largest organ and it absorbs everything you put on it, so you shouldn’t be putting anything on your skin that you wouldn’t be willing to put in your mouth. Many cosmetics and skin care products (even all-natural ones) contain chemicals and ingredients with unsavory origins.

Some of my favorite all-natural body care “products” are:

Avocado Face Mask: ½ avocado, 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice, 2 tbsp uncooked oats. Mash and mix all ingredients together and apply to face. Let it sit an hour or longer and then wash off. Your skin will be glowing and baby-soft afterwards!

Mango/Papaya Masks: When you eat a mango or a papaya don’t throw away the skins. Instead make use of your waste and rub the insides of the fruit’s skin on your face. Let it sit as long as you can before rinsing it off. The enzymes help to rejuvenate skin cells and unclog pores. Mangos contain alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) which is a skin exfoliant and rejuvenator. It is also high in Vitamin A and C, both of which are vital to maintaining healthy skin and collagen. So don’t just eat your fruit, rub it all over your body too!

Coconut Oil: Pure, unrefined Virgin Organic Coconut Oil is my moisturizer of choice. It doesn’t clog your pores and leaves your skin feeling super soft and smelling delicious! The Vitamin E in coconut oil unblocks pores and helps with healing acne scars. You can use this on eczema too!

Pimple Blaster: Make a paste from coconut oil and baking soda and dab on problem areas. Leave overnight. To increase effectiveness, you can add a drop or two of tea tree oil or wild oil of oregano.

ACV Toner: If you have oily skin and like to use a toner product, look no further than pure Apple Cider Vinegar. Use just as you would use any other toner, saturate a cotton ball and rub over oily areas!

Water, Healthy Eating & Happiness: The #1 best thing you can do to ensure healthy, glowing skin is to drink lots of water and eat a diet high in raw fruits & vegetables!! Being happy and living your life fully will give you a beauty boost no cosmetics can achieve!
