Learn how food can make you more beautiful from the inside out!
Avocado & Oat Facial Mask
This avocado-based homemade facial mask recipe will hydrate and calm dry or sensitive skin, while gently exfoliating too. The avocado and honey will both work to moisturize dry skin while the oatmeal balances and calms reactive, red and sensitive skin.
Banana Yogurt Facial Mask
No matter your skin type, full-fat plain Greek yogurt will help to gently exfoliate because of its lactic acid and moisturize because of its natural fats. Bananas contain vitamins B2, B6 and B12 to not only help reduce skin inflammation but also make the skin supple and soft.
Watermelon Facial Mask
The avocado is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which helps plump the skin, as well as vitamin C and vitamin E, which act as antioxidants for a powerful anti-aging combination.
Acne-Clearing Egg & Honey Mask
This facial mask tightens pores, tones the skin and skills bacteria without drying your skin out.
Red Wine Facial Mask
Red wine is a powerful antioxidant, and can be used for a naturally firming and anti-aging mask. Egg whites firm and tighten fine lines and wrinkles, while the red wine provides antioxidant benefits and the honey hydrates.
Strawberry + Champagne Serum
Grape seed extract in champagne packs more vitamin C and E than most anti-aging toners on the market. Strawberries not only instantly brighten your complexion with their fruit acids, but also simultaneously protect skin from further free radical damage with their antioxidant vitamin C. This toner will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also helping to prevent further aging.
Egg Yolk Hair Mask
To pair with the red-wine facial (that uses only egg whites), try this great moisturizing hair mask! It brings dull locks back to life. The cinnamon can help prevent against breakage in long hair, too!
Problem-Prone Skin Mask
Nutritional yeast does wonders for acne-prone skin. The rosemary and apple cider vinegar have astringent properties, while the yogurt gently moisturizes.
Antioxidant-Packed Moisturizing Mask
Green tea brings on the antioxidants, the honey has antibacterial properties, and the olive oil moisturizes.
Post Break-Up Mask
The caffeine in the coffee will cut down on puffiness, while the remaining ingredients will soothe and moisturize.
