Hello!

TRICK: Pumpkin Chlorella Beauty Mask

Body

October 10, 2013

A part of living Holistically Fit is being conscious of not only the foods we put in our mouths, but also the products we put on our bodies. Since our skin is our largest organ and absorbs everything we slather on it, we need to be aware of all of the chemicals that go into our blood stream through just our beauty products alone!    For this reason, I have spent several years perfecting DIY whole foods beauty treatments that come straight from my kitchen and I have found that some of them actually work even better than a $100 facial at the spa! I use these the night before an event or photo shoot and my skin always looks so much more radiant.    This face mask I am sharing with you today is so simple and leaves your skin soft and radiant while treating current or future breakouts. I also love how it uses pumpkin as it’s base since it’s fall and everything pumpkin is welcomed right now. Think of it more as skin nutrition… : )    2013-10-09 23.52.56 Ingredients: 

  • 1 Tbsp organic pumpkin puree 
  • 1/2 Tbsp Organic Chlorella powder (I use the SoTru brand for the purity and quality) 
  • 1 tsp Manuka Honey (regular raw honey is good too)

  Directions: Mix together with a spoon. Clean face and pat dry, leaving your skin a little moist. Slather on the mask, working in circular motions to massage it into your skin. Apply all over, including your neck and decollete. Relax and let it dry for about 30 minutes. Be careful not to smile, or laugh while it drying… trust me, from experience it really hurts.  IMG_9569

BENEFITS

Pumpkin- Rich in Vitamin A, which soothes and softens skin. It can help remove old surface skin cells with specific enzymes and help promote new cell production. Pumpkin can also help fight inflammation, reduce pore size and and help control excess oil.  Chlorella- Known for “nature’s perfect food”… why not put it on your skin!? Studies have shown chlorella to positively affect wrinkles, dark circles, visible veins, firmness and elasticity of the skin. See this article for more info: http://bit.ly/1guhA7s  Manuka Honey- helps treat and fight acne, increases collagen production, makes skin smooth by restoring moisture and provides natural antioxidants. See Manuka blog more amazing benefits of this natural beauty product.  I hope you enjoyed this little DIY beauty TRICK. Let me know if you try it. Post your pictures on Instagram or Twitter and tag me @HoliFitGirl… I want to see those green faces! : )   In Health and Happiness,   Lauren McBride
