Make it Yourself Monday- Nourishing Mask

Here is a recipe that you may be tempted to eat, but use it on your face and neck and you will look scrumptious! Take some carrots for their beta carotene and anti-oxidant vitamins, add some avocado for its high amount of vitamin E, and toss in some heavy cream for its calcium and protein, and you will get a facial mask that, when used regularly, will improve the skin's texture, diminish age spots and rebuild the skin's collagen.

You will need;
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cooked and mashed medium to large sized carrot
1 peeled, pitted and mashed avocado
3 tablespoons pure honey

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowel, mix well, then spread over the face and neck area, avoiding eyes and nostrils. Allow the mixture to set for 15 minutes, then rinse with tepid water and pat dry. Moisturize as normal.

Remember to keep your avocado pit, as it makes a wonderful (natural) massage tool. Just rub it and roll it against your skin to soothe tired muscles!
