This week’s recipe is for an organic, all natural, face mask. The ingredients are so wholesome you could eat it if you wanted. Did you know that our skin is the largest organ on our bodies? What you put on your skin gets absorbed into your bloodstream and directly affects your health. When using lotions, creams, and makeup it is extremely important to use organic, natural products.
The majority of cosmetic companies are not regulated and include tons of chemicals in their products. Have you ever tried to read the ingredients in a jar of face cream? I bet you couldn’t even pronounce more than 3 of the ingredients.
The following recipe for Hydrating Chocolate Facial Mask comes from Annmarie Gianni Skin Care. Located in only a few retail stores, Annmarie Gianni Skin Care can be found in select Yakima Washington stores or online at http://www.annmariegianni.com
Chocolate Hydrating Facial Mask
(Makes 2-3 applications.)
1/2 ripe avocado
1 handful almonds (10-12 nuts)
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
Add all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend for 30 seconds or until the consistency is even. The mixture should be thick, but you can add more water if it is not blending.
When done, massage your mask over a clean face, light some candles, put on some relaxing music and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse off when finished and apply our Anti-Aging Serum and your facial oil of choice.
This mask will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
