DIY Moisturizing Face Mask by Dr. Sarah Villafranco
This DIY moisturizing face mask provides essential fatty acids (flax and cacao), a vitamin and mineral boost (banana and honey), an anti-inflammatory hit (turmeric) and a hydrating/firming effect (cacao and honey).
- 3 teaspoons ground flax seeds
- 2 teaspoons raw cacao powder
- 2 teaspoons raw honey
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 bite-size piece banana
In a small bowl, combine the following ingredients well. Use a fork to make a paste, and allow the mixture to sit for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, apply the DIY beauty mixture to clean skin, and allow it to sit for 20 minutes. Dr. Sarah Villafranco adds, “Hopefully [you can wear this mask] while you meditate or listen to an inspiring podcast. If you have any mask leftover, you’ve got yourself a tasty little snack!”
When you’re ready to rinse, you can either rinse with warm water over the sink or hop in the shower for a less messy process. Pat your skin dry and follow with your usual serum or moisturizer.
