After discovering half an avocado left in the fridge, my mind started working overtime on how I could go about using it, rather than throwing it away.
With a little play around, and having a background in beauty, I came up with a mask that would help to nourish my skin and sure enough my skin felt great once I’d washed it off. This is also a great excuse to lay down for 15-20 minutes while checking the latest on social media or relaxation time!
What I’ve done here is three different face masks to target different areas: dry skin, anti-aging and combination.
The great thing about these masks is you’ll find all of these ingredients in your fridge, plus with names of ingredients that you can actually pronounce!
A personal favourite of mine, as I find my skin gets very dry, quite easily:
Half an avocado / about 2 tbsp.
I tsp. Lucy Bee Coconut Oil, melted
Mash the avocado into a bowl, then add the honey and melted Lucy Bee. Mix together well.
Apply to face and neck - Leave for 15/20 minutes before washing off.
As we get older, we lose the firmness in our skin due to the collagen and elastin in our skin weakening. This mask will help to boost the collagen and elastin, while also soothing and hydrating the skin. This will help with plumping skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. After doing a little more research to come up with the best anti-aging Food Facial Mask, I found out that bananas are known as ‘Mother Nature’s botox’.
1 medium sized banana
1 tsp. Lucy Bee Coconut Oil, melted
1 tsp. Lucy Bee Cacao Powder
Mash the banana into a bowl then add the Lucy Bee Coconut Oil and Lucy Bee Cacao Powder.
Mix together well and apply to your skin for 15/20 minutes.
This mixture of powerful natural ingredients does wonders to problematic skin!
1 tbsp. Lucy Bee Turmeric Powder
1/2 cup of oats
1 tsp. Lucy Bee Coconut Oil
1 tbsp. yoghurt
Blend the Lucy Bee Turmeric Powder and oats together (I find this works better than using oats whole), then add the Lucy Bee Coconut Oil and yoghurt and mix well. Apply to skin and neck. Leave on for 15-20minutes.
So there you have it, a couple of ways to make a mess in the kitchen but make your skin glowing and gorgeous!!!
Oh, one more thing, why not put some cucumber over your eyes to feel really pampered. – Enjoy!
