Agave + Aloe Face Mask

Your next cure-all face mask!

This post comes from our blog intern, Emily.

Inspiration struck to combine agave and aloe when the abundance of the two plants could be seen in Jana’s photos from Spain. With these two ingredients (and a few more) you’ve got yourself a simple, healing, and beautifying mask. Read on to learn how to reap the benefits:

Agave Nectar: An ancient, natural cure for many skin conditions. Has been shown to aid in healing wounds and has anti-aging properties.

Aloe: A magical ingredient internally and externally. It’s effective in treating dry skin, hair and scalp problems, healing wounds and skin ailments, and is especially soothing to skin.

Avocado: Mother Nature’s moisturizer.

Sweet Almond Oil: Cleanses, smooths, removes dark circles and discoloration, relieves skin conditions… and so much more.

  1. read this : facts- message- when I was young I suffered skin acne my mom, took me to the clinic the doctors did blood test that is took blood 2 ounces from my left arm. They run the blood test in microscope linked hooked up to the computers. They said acne or pimples when severe is “bacterias” inside the blood. – I was living back in the past in the city Washington DC . And that city water is polluted. We’ll- all city water polluted. Not only that but re- cycled , sewer water or toilet bowl water. – when I moved out in the country areas, switched to well water and no longer has acne . So skin therapists are correct about diet what you eat that also what you drinks. Another truth – pork/hog meat has microscopic worms that causes cancer and arthritis too: Pig meat , sold in cans also like pork and beans ect. Is just one type can food. Pig meat causes the flu. And headaches also. Bacterias – are in pork meat also keeps a person sick. Remember I said ” micro- scopic. Parasites and microbes bacterias. Pork also has tapeworms. Hook worms and seven other organ worms. Another fact:: – black womans like to use the hot hair straightening combs . . . Too get temporary longer hair. My mother use to use theses combs also- and when I was a little boy, I would warn her that thing burning your hair cells stunting the growth of her hair . And every time she- use the thing hair get cooked and be coming out in the comb teeth. She soon started wearing wigs and would go to Chinese hair store – shops to get the cheap priced wigs. Her hair never grew back long again. Then I noticed my dad – — he never went to the barber shop for hair cuts : he let his hair grow for 12 months, used no brush , uses no combs. Only afro picks. He grew a AFRO – big one without using chemical blow out kits. What he did was wash hair every 2 days. Pick every day his hair and mom would buy nutralizing shampoos. Used no hair grease. Only Johnson’s baby pick lotion for babies to help prevent excess dried hair from occurring. He put some in his hair but the lotion is for new born babies ect there skin. Then he pick the Afro with the hair pick everyday . (These statements have been overlooked and to be actually found to be factual ) MD/Research facts year- 2016 updated
