Facial masks are refreshing and give your skin the rejuvenation it needs as the seasons change.
To shake things up and get away from buying a facial cream potentially full of chemicals, why not try a natural vegetable cream? Though imagining mashed up vegetables on your face is a bit gross, the result of treating yourself to a hydrating organic facial will be well worth smelling like tomato paste or garlic for a couple hours….or days.
Avocado Body Mask
- 2 avocados
- 3 tbsp sea salt
- Two fresh lemons grated
- ¼ cup coconut oil
Mix all ingredients in blender until smooth. Apply to face for 10 to 15 minutes and rinse off. Refrigerate remainder and use every two to three days. Avocado is very hydrating and will leave your skin silky smooth.
Carrot Facial Mask
- 2-3 carrots
- 4 tbsp honey
Cook carrots and mash with honey, and apply to your face. Leave for 10 minutes and rinse with a cool cloth. Carrots are great for the skin because of their Vitamin A content and they are hydrating.
Tomato Paste Facial
- Dash of water
Blend tomatoes until smooth, but not the consistency of juice. Apply to face and leave for 10 minutes and wipe dry. Tomatoes will regenerate the skin and give it a new glow.
Garlic Face Mask
- ½ tbsp. corn flour and ½ tbsp. sandalwood powder
- Squirt of Lemon juice
- ½ tbsp garlic paste
- Dash of almond milk
Mix all ingredients and add a dash of almond milk to make into a gooey dough. Apply to face and leave for 10 minutes. Rinse with cold water. Garlic is rich in Vitamins A, C, and E and protects the skin from sun rays.
Kale Face Mask
- Two leaves of kale
- Almond milk
- ½ tsp honey
Blend all ingredients together until smooth and rub on face. Leave for 10 minutes and rinse. Kale contains a lot of hydrating nutrients and will leave the face feeling refreshed and moisturized.
Vegetable facial masks aren’t just fun to make, they are also a lot less expensive than the spa alternative. So, for your next girls night, why not try them out!
