Strawberry Yogurt Masque
2-3 ripe organic strawberries either mashed by hand or pureed
2 teaspoons organic full-fat yogurt
2 teaspoons raw honey
This masque can be made in a bigger batch, but this measurement is enough for the entire face neck and décolleté. If you want to make a bigger batch and save it for later use, you can put the leftovers of one regular size container of full-fat yogurt, five ripe strawberries and 3 teaspoons of honey in an ice cube tray, freeze them and then pop them out and put in a freezer bag for future use either as a snack for your face or for you as a smoothie in your blender!
Pumpkin Cream and Raw Honey Masque
1 tablespoon organic canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 teaspoon organic full-fat cream or buttermilk
1 teaspoon raw honey
This masque can also be made in a bigger batch to have when needed. I hate to waste opening a can of pumpkin unless you were going to do that anyway, so you can add 3/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup buttermilk or cream to the rest of the regular-sized can of pumpkin, then combine and freeze in an ice cube tray. Store those the same way as the strawberry masque and they are fine to use for future use up to six months. You can do this masque once a week, just thaw before use!
These masques are both amazing ways to gently exfoliate your skin, reduce irregular pigmentation and the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Both are full of enzymes and antioxidants we need to fight the aging process. As long as you use the freshest ingredients, you get the best results, so always use organic produce and canned goods, and raw honey for all of its anti-inflammatory and healing benefits!
