Coconut carrot face mask
Topically applied, carrots are known to stimulate cellular renewal, enriching and repairing tissues, while they work to neutralise free radicals, preventing premature ageing.
Packed with phytonutrients, this youth-restoring mask works to balance oil production and clarify pores for all skin types.
The lemon juice adds additional astringent and lightening properties to this nourishing mask (add the lemon juice if you have oily or combination skin).
1 small carrot, peeled and washed
2 teaspoons coconut oil
˝ teaspoon coconut flour
1 teaspoon lemon juice, optional
You will need:
mixing bowl, fork, saucepan with the lid and steamer, small tight-sealing storage container
Cut the carrot into chunks and place in a vegetable steamer. Steam on medium heat until soft enough to mash with a fork. Remove from the heat.
Place the carrots in the mixing bowl. Add the coconut oil and begin mashing them together. The coconut oil will melt with the heat of the carrot.
Once well blended, add the coconut flour and blend to a uniform consistency. Add the lemon juice if desired and stir well.
This mask is best when used fresh. You can store the mask in a closed container in the refrigerator and use within 3 days.
Spread a thick layer of the mask onto a clean skin. Leave on for about 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Follow with a toner.
