A couple of friends have got me thinking recently - maybe I don't need to be so easily led down the path of bank account doom purchasing all these skin care products that promise eternal youth. Partner in crime Emma has been experimenting with homemade remedies lately such as applying an avocado face mask (a tasty treat too!).
Things you need to start:
1/2 medium ripe Avacodo
1 tbsp all natural honey
1 tbsp all natural yogurt
How to make:
Another tip from Emma after some research was about the seaweed you find in your Miso soup (Wakame). It's jam packed of calcium - (more than disgusting cow juice) so I bought some too and we take a little a day like medicine. It helps to break down cellulite deposits and disperses local fatty cells to improve the body's general health and appearance. It can be used as a face mask which is beneficial for acne prone skin!
Method for Seaweed Face Mask
- Cleanse face well.
- Prepare a paste using 2-5 tsps. (13-15gr) with approximately 20ml of hot water.
- Mix to a smooth paste.
- Cover face and neck area with a thick layer of seaweed paste.
- Leave for 20-30 minutes until dry.
- Rinse off with warm water, finish of with a Moisturiser.
