Carrot Face Mask for Oily Skin


Carrot Face Mask for Oily Skin


Not only are carrots good for your eyes, they are also great for your skin!  Carrots are high in Vitamin A and beta-carotene.  Beta-carotene is a product that comes from plants that the body eventually converts into Vitamin A.  Beta-carotenes are also high in anti-oxidants and acts as an immune booster when taken internally.  When applied topically these vitamins and minerals help to fight against sun damage which is the number one cause of wrinkles.

Ingredients:

1 medium sized carrot
1 tbsp honey

Directions:

Steam or boil the carrots so that they are easy to mash or puree.  Add the honey and mix well together.  At this point you can add a few drops of lemon juice to help the consistency.  Lemon juice is a great cleaning astringent which helps to clear and close your pores resulting in smoother looking skin.

Rinse your face with warm water and pat dry.  Add the face mask mixture to your face when cooler and leave on for 10-15 minutes.  Wipe off with a warm wash cloth or rinse with warm water and pat dry.
