Carrot Face Mask

Easy,  inexpensive and healthy! The  ingredients contain natural antiseptics and antioxidants which kill germs and protect the skin from damaging  free radicals.
Ingredients:
2 medium carrots – powerful antiseptic to kill germ and protect skin with antioxidants. Carrots help protect the skin from free radicals and promote the regeneration of healthy skin cells.
1 Tbsp honey – also antiseptic and reduces swelling
1 Tbsp olive oil – nourishes and cleans the skin
1 lemon – astringent and acidic.  This maintains the acid mantel of your skin which keeps in moisture and keeps out germs.

Directions:

  1. Peal the carrots and steam until soft.
  2. Mash the carrots into a creamy consistency.
  3. Mix in 1 tbsp. of all natural honey.
  4. Stir in 1 tbsp. of olive oil.
  5. Squeeze a few drops of fresh lemon juice into the face mask mixture. Lemon is a natural astringent and will help clean greasy skin.  If your skin tends to dry easily, add only 8 to 10 drops; if you skin tends to be oily, add up to 1 tbsp. of lemon juice.
  6. Use a spoon to drop small amounts onto your hands and gently massage the mask onto your whole face for several minutes.
  7. You can keep it on for an additional 5  minutes.
  8. You can then just wash it off with water in a sink or easier – in the shower.
