As much as we don’t want to admit it, we’ve all done it.Sunburns… they’re an almost inevitable part of summer. Whether your sunscreen failed or you forgot it all together, we’ve all had a burn or two in our day. Sunburns — and sun exposure in general — put our skin through the ringer during these hot and sticky months, and by the end of the season our skin can be left feeling parched and flaky. Definitely not a great way to welcome autumn.
This past weekend I finally made it to the beach, and after a few hours of salt water, sand, and blazing late-summer sun, my skin felt as if it needed a little extra care. So, after returning home I whipped up this super easy and deeply nourishing mask. It’s the perfect gift to give your skin after three months of UV rays and salty waves. Composed of natural oils to de-puff and replenish, hydrating raw honey, and naturally exfoliating organic yogurt, this concoction is perfect for this transitional time of year.
2 Tbs raw honey
2 Tbs almond oil
2 Tbs olive or jojoba oil
1/2 cup organic yogurt
Small bowl or container
Place the honey in the container and warm it in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
Next, add the almond oil and stir.
After you’ve combined the honey and almond oil, add the olive oil.
Next add the yogurt and gently whisk with a fork until smooth.
Apply to a clean face — being sure to avoid the eye area — and leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a fresh towel.
