This home made skin care recipe is provided to us from Mindy Terry, Lifestyle Expert and President, Creative Spa Concepts.
- ½ Ripe Organic Avocado
- 3 Chunks Fresh Pineapple
- ¼ Organic Lime
- 1 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/2 TBS Honey (Local, if available)
- To Cleanse Before Mask: approximately ½ tsp. Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
Add avocado and pineapple chunks to a food processor. Squeeze the lime to extract juice and pulp onto the mixture. Process until smooth, but textured. Add olive oil and honey and mix with a fork until well blended.
Cleanse skin with your favorite cleanser. Dampen a cotton pad with apple cider vinegar and smooth over face and neck. Carefully avoid eye and lip area. (This step may tingle a little. Some redness is common. For sensitive skin, soak cotton pad with water prior to applying ACV). Apply the masque to your skin while sitting or standing. Avoid the eye and lip areas. Relax for 10 minutes.
Remove excess masque with your fingers, leaving a fine layer on the skin. Prepare a steam bath by simmering water over the stove. While the water heats up, massage the masque into the skin using deep, upward circular movements. Continue to massage for three-five minutes.
Turn off the heat on the stove. Lean your face over the steam rising from the water. Drape a towel over your head to create a tent preventing the steam from escaping. Enjoy the steam bath for three minutes. Use a washcloth soaked in warm water to remove the masque and apply your favorite moisturizer.
