1. The vitamin-packed avocado and honey mask
This mask is perfect for a glowing skin as both avocado and honey are natural moisturizers. Get an avocado, take the skin off, remove the seed and mash it up. Mix it thoroughly with 1 spoon of honey until you obtain a standard paste. Apply it on your skin for 15 minutes. It will help to erase any sign of dull complexion and will give you an immediate glow.
2. The organic banana face mask
This mask is perfect for every skin type and will give you an immediate healthy glow. Mash half of a banana. Mix a tablespoon of orange juice with a tablespoon of honey. Add the banana to the mix and apply it on your face for 15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and then moisturize.
3. The nourishing honey mask
Honey is an incredible anti-bacterial and healer ingredient – which make it perfect for acne-fighting masks. Nutritional yeast is rich in B vitamins that help rebalance the skin. This mask is nourishing and healing at the same time. Brew 1 cup of chamomile tea with two tea bags and let it cool down. Stir one table spoon or raw honey and one of nutritional yeast. Add to the paste just enough chamomile tea to make it thick enough to spread on your face. Apply a thin layer and let it sit for 20 minutes. Rinse and dry it.
4. The exfoliating brown sugar scrub mask
Brown sugar sloughs off dead skin while coconut oil packs it with moisture. The result? A soft and glowy finish. Mix two tablespoon of brown sugar with two of virgin coconut oil in order to form an easy scrub. Apply it on your face in gentle circular movements. Let it sink in for a few minutes and then wash it off with warm water.
