You don’t have to go to a spa to do a little pampering. Plan a spa night at home with some good friends and make a few of these home-made facial masks. All you will need are a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand and maybe a bottle of wine and some healthy snacks!
Kefir is one of my favorite DIY facial ingredients due to its beneficial bacteria and naturally occurring Alpha-Hydroxy Acid. AHA’s are great for your skin because they rid the skin of dead surface cells and stimulate the production of collagen. If you aren’t already making your own kefir at home, you should consider it. It is very simple to do and only takes minutes a day. Use what you need for your daily probiotic intake, and save the rest for your skin care routine! You can find more information on how to get started making your own kefir here.
For Normal Skin:
Blend together 1/2 banana, 2 TBS of kefir, and 1 TBS of honey. Apply to the face, neck, and chest area and let set for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and a cloth. Bananas are incredibly nourishing for your skin and honey works as a natural humectant. No need to moisturize after this treatment, your skin will be incredibly soft and hydrated!
For Oily/Acne Skin:
Whip together 2 TBS of kefir, 1 egg white, and 1 tsp of lemon juice. Apply evenly to the face, neck, chest, and/or back area and let set for 5-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and a cloth. Follow with 1 pump of Blemish Control Serum combined with 2 pumps of Organic Cucumber Hydrating Mist or Blemish Control Toner. Repeat this mask every 2-3 days to clear up acne breakouts.
For Dry Skin:
Combine 1/2 ripe avocado, 1 TBS of kefir, and 1 TBS of honey until blended well. Apply to the face, neck, and chest. Make sure you massage it in very well. Let it set for 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water and a cloth. Follow up with a few mists of Organic Rosewater Hydrating Mist. Use the other half of your avocado for a delicious serving of avocado toast!
