Citrus-Honey Face Mask Recipe
PLASTIC FREE BEAUTY
Putting harsh chemicals on our skin is an odd beauty regimen...not to mention those nasties go straight into our bloodstream. We should only put what we would EAT onto our skin! Here is a plastic-free super easy DIY face mask that “brightens & tightens.”
- 1 TBSP FRESH SQUEEZED ORANGE JUICE.
- 1 TBSP FRESH SQUEEZED LIME JUICE.
- 1 TBSP HONEY.
Stir. Apply. Let sit for 10 minutes. Wash & pat dry. Enjoy a smooth + shining complexion!!
The folic acid in the citrus fruits refreshes pores & dries out oily bits to control acne. Oranges are replete with vitamin C, which increases the production of collagen and keeps skin firm and moist--effectively warding off aging and wrinkles as well as fading dark spots. Honey is a humectant, which means it attracts & retains moisture, keeping skin supple & soft. It also has anti-oxidant & antimicrobial properties. *Beware of sun exposure after the citric acid on your skin, be sure to wear a hat and/or plenty of sun cream.
The best part of all, if a bit drips on your lips--it's delicious!
Store in a small jar (former mustard jar is great size) in the fridge! If it solidifies, let soften in the sun and/or stir in some water.
MULTI-PURPOSE: Can also pop in a small spray bottle for hair shine spray or make a larger batch for a 10 minute leave-in conditioner! (Add half portion of coconut-oil to your conditioner if you have normal to dry hair)
