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.
Agave Aloe Face Mask
1/4 cup aloe vera gel
2 tbsp of agave nectar
1 tsp sweet almond oil
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth. Apply a generous layer to your face and neck, including the area under your eyes. Leave on for up to 30 minutes and do something to unwind. Rinse with cool water and pat dry.
