Skin healing face mask

I know what you're thinking... that looks gross. I agree with you, however it is a miracle worker when it comes to your skin. No, you don't eat it - it goes on your face. It has three very simple but effective ingredients for making your skin soft and smooth.

1. Avocado - they are full of goodness and are mother natures skin moisturiser. Avocados contain good fats and vitamin E, which are important for healthy skin.

2. Manuka honey - comes from bees that pollinate the Manuka tree which is found exclusively in New Zealand. Manuka honey is quite rare, which makes it a bit expensive. This honey has a reputation as a "healing honey" because it has antibacterial and antiviral properties. You can eat it when you feel sickness approaching or you can use it on your skin for antibacterial and healing purposes.

3. Wheatgrass - has detoxifying properties and will make your skin feel super smooth. I use it in a powdered form (available from most health food shops)

To make a face mask out of these three ingredients, you basically mash a quarter of an avocado with a fork, mix in a teaspoon of Manuka honey and a teaspoon of wheatgrass powder.

Before applying the mask, you will first have to cleanse your face. Then soak a small face towel in warm water and pat on your face for a minute to open up your pores. After you have done that, you can apply the face mask for 5 minutes and wash off with warm water and your done! If you want to make this into a face scrub then add some raw sugar crystals to the mixture and rub on your face.
