Let’s be real, Spring is pretty much HERE!
Well, at least in Seattle it is.
To celebrate, my good friend Jessica over at Heart Swell and I made a VIDEO tutorial for a homemade facial that’s perfectly in season for Spring. You heard me, video!
This facial is super, super quick and easy to make and gives you clear, even-toned, GLOWING skin for this sunny weather. Plus, it doubles as a pretty delicious smoothie.
Ingredients (makes 2 facials, keeps in the fridge for 2 days):
Greek yogurt (3 oz)
Rhubarb (2 tbs)
Pineapple (2-3 chunks)
Lemon (2 slices)
Mint (2-3 leaves)
The greek yogurt is antibacterial and has zinc, which both fight acne/blemishes and even out skin tone. Yogurt also has a mild bleaching effect, which gives you a nice glow. Rhubarb is full of great vitamins for skin, including ascorbic acid. Pineapple is packed with amino acids, vitamin C, and collagen synthesizing goodies which tighten up skin and give it a youthful glow. Lemons have citric acid that brightens skin, fights acne, and moisturizes. A mint is a nice refreshing, cooling touch of scent to add at the end!
Basically this facial was designed for locally-sourced springtime ingredients! What are your go-to homemade facials?
