THE BEAUTY KITCHEN

By  |  0 Comments

Going to the spa is fun¸ exciting and relaxing.  But most of all, it’s expensive.  Why spend your money at an overpriced spa for a fruit facial when you can go to your local grocery store, invite some friends over, and have your own spa party?  Next time you cruise the produce isle at your local market, take this article along with you.  I am going to show seven simple ways that you can turn your kitchen into a Beauty Kitchen.

Fruit Facials are all the rage and I would like to share some  recipes that are often featured in many of the most exclusive spas in the county.  The best part about these facials is that you only need to drive to your local grocery store.

 

POMEGRANATE, ALMOND & HONEY FRUIT MASK

This mask is designed to fight aging and restore your youthful complexion with only few simple ingredients:

  • ½ pomegranate
  • 2 teaspoons of almond oil
  • ½ tablespoon organic honey

Heat the honey until it becomes a nice, warm liquid. The best way to do this is to insert a glass of honey into a pan of boiling water. DO NOT microwave it – you will only burn the honey and all the nutrients as well!  Next, peel the pomegranate and puree the fruit in a food processor.

Then add the honey and the almond oil to the pomegranate puree and mix it until it becomes a uniform paste. Spread the mask over your face gently with your fingertips. You could also use a nice foundation or fan brush.  Leave the mask on for 20 minutes, rinse with warm water and then apply your favorite moisturizer.

There are lots of great benefits to this mask:

Pomegranate is rich in Vitamins B5 and C and potassium.  These nutrients enrich the beauty and life of your skin and provide natural antioxidants.  In fact, the oil from pomegranate seeds has been used by many women over the centuries for the simple reason that the oil contains punicic acid, an omega 5 conjugated fatty acid that is great for cell regeneration.

Almond oil nourishes your skin and moisturizes much deeper than any lotion you can pick up at your local department store.  It also soothes skin irritations and lightens dark circles under your eyes.

Honey possesses natural antioxidants and protects your skin. It supports your ability to rejuvenate and refresh depleted skin, leaving it feeling soft, silky and supple. Honey also aids in the treatment of acne.

I strongly recommend this mask for anyone fighting aging and or acne.
