Get Glowing with a DIY Superfoods Facial

At-home facials are one of the oldest beauty treatments in the book. Not only do they cleanse, clarify, moisturize, and help you de-stress, but they are inexpensive and easy to customize to your own preferences and needs.

This particular DIY superfoods facial introduces the use of those healthy superfoods we hear so much about. With this DIY mask you can bring a fresh update to your beauty regimen. Superfoods are all the rage these days, as they pack a lot of nutrients into a little volume. For this same reason, they are beneficial from the outside-in, too. They are powerhouses when it comes to nutrient content, but also gentle and completely natural which makes them especially great for environmentally damaged or sensitive skin.

Just like your favorite honest products, this recipe uses completely natural and plant based ingredients. Check out some of the awesome benefits of each below:

  • Avocado= Rich in vitamins A and C, and fatty acids. These soften and hydrate dry patches, and increase collagen production to reduce wrinkles.

  • Pumpkin= Rich in vitamins A, C, and E, plus zinc. These  hydrate and smooth skin, reducing damage caused by free radicals.

  • Raw honey= Naturally antibacterial, warding off and healing blemishes.

  • Paprika= Rich in antioxidants and essential vitamins and minerals, which stimulates circulation and helps open pores for effective moisturization.
