Using natural and organic food ingredients to brighten, purify, and hydrate skin

We all love a good DIY project, and what’s easier than a natural mask recipe you can whip up in 5 minutes to get beneficial results for skin? The best part is that most of these ingredients are in your pantry already. We’ve also snuck in our ultra luxurious, vitamin packed facial oil into 2 recipes for its added anti-aging punch and silky texture-- after all, aren’t facial masks better with a bit of skin-healthy decadence?

We’ve picked 3 of our fave DIY natural face mask recipes to prepare on a relaxing weekend, a girl’s getaway, or just a regular weekday that needs a little extra lovin’. We’re targeting lackluster skin, oily and acne prone skin, and dry skin-- all with multi-tasking ingredients for added moisture, increased suppleness, and healthier skin.

SKIN CARE TIP: As with any new skin care treatment, patch-test the finished product on your inner arm before applying to face, to rule out any potential allergic reactions.

pumpkin

PUMPKIN PAPAYA FACIAL MASK

For brightening lackluster skin
What You’ll Need and Why:
  • 2 tbsp pure pumpkin puree
    • Great source of the anti-aging antioxidant, vitamin A
    • Contains high amounts of vitamin C to soften skin and boost collagen production
    • Rich in alpha hydroxy acids and fruit enzymes to increase cell turnover and smooth skin (by breaking away top layers of dead skin) and to brighten complexion
  • ½ cup diced fresh papaya
    • Potent source of fruit acids and AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), for breaking away dead skin layers
  • 2 tsp fresh, organic coffee grounds
    • Caffeine tightens and stimulates to make pores appear smaller
    • Brightens and de-puffs skin, making it a saviour for dark circles
    • Can gently exfoliate to purge dirt and oil from pores
  • 1 tsp Restorative Facial Oil
    • Cold processing retains maximum vitamin content
    • Includes oil and acne targeting jojoba seed oil
    • Includes antioxidant and fatty acid rich rosehip oil, for doses of anti-aging vitamin A
    • Made with pomegranate and blackcurrant oils for plumper, more supple skin from omega 5 fatty acids, plus punicic acid and ellagic acid for anti-inflammatory and brightening effects
Directions:

Mix pumpkin and papaya in food processor on low until evenly combined. Whisk in facial oil and coffee grounds until smooth and evenly dispersed. Apply to face and neck, then leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm (not hot!) water.

SKIN CARE TIP: Since the enzymes in pumpkin and papaya will already be working hard to break down skin’s top most layer of dead cells, massaging this mask into skin is not necessary. If you’d like a deeper exfoliating effect, gently and slowly massage mask into skin for 30 seconds before allowing to set.

  • 1 tsp organic honey
    • Can help breakdown excess sebum
    • Contains naturally antibacterial properties that fight acne-causing bacteria
    • A strong humectant for retaining moisture in over-dried skin
    • Soothes redness thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties
