During the winter months, our skin needs more attention than any other time. That’s because of the environmental stresses – indoor heat, outside wind and cold, and, of course, a lack of moisture in the air.
But, you can help your skin stay healthy by increasing your consumption of certain foods and by being careful of what you put on your skin. Consuming foods like fresh fruits and vegetables keep skin hydrated. Fruits and veggies contain vitamins, minerals, and “biological” water – essentials ingredients to help our skin fight the stresses of winter.
We can also nourish our skin on the outside by using high quality, natural ingredients. Avocado, pomegranate, coconut and almond oil, honey and other vegetation offer a plethora of benefits to the skin.
So, do you want a recipe that will help to hydrate and nourish your skin? Well, here it is – a honey and pomegranate mask. You will love it.
Ingredients for your honey and pomegranate mask:
One heaping tablespoon manuka honey or raw honey
Peel your pomegranate and put the seeds in a blender. Add the honey and blend until the mixture is very well combined and the seeds have been blended completely.
Put this excellent mask on your washed face. Take your time and apply the mixture on all areas except, of course, your delicate eye area. The seeds are great for exfoliating while you apply the mask. Leave on for 30 minutes and then rinse with warm water until all the mask is removed. Follow up with a toner and moisturizer of your choice. Your skin will have a nice glow and will feel soft and lovely.
A Little About The Pomegranate:
Pomegranates are a powerful anti-oxidant and anti-ager. It also extends the life of the cells responsible for the production of collagen, which keep the skin young looking.
And don’t forget to make pomegranates a part of your diet. One glass of pomegranate juice will provide you with vitamins A, C, and E. It can have an enormous impact on your health as it is shown to help with heart health by keeping the arteries flexible and blockage free and by reducing high blood pressure.
A Little About Manuka Honey:
Manuka honey is a medicinal honey. It is anti-bacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal. Honey is a humectant because it pulls moisture from the air, so it is excellent for skin care. Many diseases respond to manuka honey – acne, boils, burns, and ulcers. Honey has been used for centuries by beautiful women in their skincare routines and has been attributed to providing a healthy “glow” to the skin. Discover its benefits for yourself!
