I have realised many things this past few weeks, things about my relationships, not just my relationship with other people. but also my relationship with myself. I haven’t respected myself enough. I haven’t taken enough care of myself, and that must change.
So it starts here. With food. On my face.
I’m a big believer in loving the skin your in. And part of loving it must be taking care of it, right? I’m not a big believer in beauty products, I think there is a lot of junk on the market that is designed to empty our pockets and lather our skin in chemicals, and that just doesn’t float my boat. I’ve always been very cautious about what I use on Bo’s skin but I’ve been lax about my own personal care.
This changes here.
The best thing about using “natural” skin products, is often you already have everything you need, right now… in your kitchen.
This is one of my favourites. And one I took the time to lather on my skin this evening whilst Bo was in the bath. What better time to let a face mask sit (when you have no time at all) than when you play with your baby at bath time…
Kiwi and Yoghurt face mask.
What you need:
Fresh juice from one orange segment (optional)
What you do:
Puree the kiwi fruit. I puree heaps when on special and freeze them in ice-cube trays along with lots of other fruits and vegies that get used for snacks, meals, desserts, frozen treats and skin care.
Mix in one spoon of yoghurt, a bit of coconut oil and a squeeze of orange juice.
Put it on your face. Rub it gently into your skin.
Let it dry, Then wash it off gently.
You can freeze any excess for use at a later date. Or just pop it in the fridge and treat yourself again tomorrow, or you know, just spoon it into your mouth. Why not. Its delicious and 100% good for you, inside and out.
It makes my skin much brighter and softer and just makes me feel more loved. And sometimes… that’s just exactly what we need.
