Whip It Up
Why I Love This Recipe
take your smoothie from the blender to your face .....
Ingredients You'll Need
½ avocado (Packed with Moisturizing Monounsaturated Fatty Acids, Vitamin E & Vitamin C which moisturizes, has anti aging properties and helps build elastin)
1 avocado seed (Full of collagen and antioxidants that are great for the skin)
½ banana (Moisturizes, sloughs away dry skin to give you a radiant glow and is packed with Vitamin E)
¼ cup raw virgin coconut oil (Has disinfectant and antimicrobial properties which cleanse skin while moisturizing. This is the coconut oil that Scratch Mommy uses in the skincare shop)
2 Tbl raw honey (The clarifying properties in honey will help unclog pores. The moisturizing properties will sooth your skin and give it a glow. The antibacterial properties will help fight acne. This raw honey is a favorite.)
2 Tbl organic whole oats (Oatmeal softens and soothes your skin. It also has fabulous natural exfoliant properties. These are our favorite oats for eating and skincare!)
1 tsp dried lavender (Inhibits bacterial growth which is great for breakouts, helps reduce scarring from acne, aids in healing of skin and has relaxing aromatherapy benefits. )
Put ingredients in blender.
Blend until smooth. I used the soup setting to blend so that the face mask came out nice and warm.
Smooth on skin**. Leave for 20 minutes or until dried.
Wash off with a warm washcloth.
Enjoy your moisturized, radiant skin.
**If you have sensitivities to any of these ingredients, please do a patch test first before applying to your entire face.
