How would you like a professional anti aging facial mask that can keep your skin looking young but do it without the expense of going to a spa? This article will show you how to make a wonderful mask in the comfort of your home.
Facial masks are a good way to thoroughly and deeply cleanse and nourish your skin. Although there are many masks that you can buy at a drug store, I think you will find this one to be even more nutrient dense than anything in the marketplace. It is my favorite facial mask. Before I give you the recipe and directions, I’d like to first discuss the:
The five key ingredients for this anti aging facial mask are packed full of antioxidants and beautifying properties. They are easy to combine and can become part of your natural anti aging skin care routine.
Ingredient 1 – Chocolate!
Chocolate has been rediscovered to be one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. Raw chocolate in its purest form has the highest amount of cancer fighting, disease busting, premature age destroying antioxidants on the planet.
While chocolate used to be known to cause acne, it has since been recognized that the milk and other ingredients that make up your average chocolate bar are the real cause of acne. It has also been discovered that putting milk in powerful foods such as tea and chocolate can prevent the antioxidants from being absorbed properly.
The Mayans and the Aztecs called chocolate the food of the Gods. In addition to its high levels of antioxidants, it contains ingredients that regulate mood, increase libido, and leave us feeling peaceful, relaxed, and full of love.
It is best if you can get raw chocolate powder. If you can’t, then simply use pure, unsweetened cocoa powder.
Ingredient 2 – Avocado!
Many skin care products use avocado oil for its anti aging properties to help create youthful, glowing skin. In fact, avocados have been used for centuries to rejuvenate the skin. The ancient Mayan, Aztec, and Incan civilizations knew how beneficial the oils in avocados are to aid in beauty and reduce eye puffiness.
Avocados are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, are anti inflammatory (inflammation is one of the biggest causes of aging) and are a potent moisturizer. They can also increase the elasticity of the skin. This is why avocado skin masks have become so popular.
Since avocados are perishable, please be sure to use this formula as soon as you make it. I suggest organically grown avocados that are firm but have a slight “give” to the flesh.
Ingredient 3 – Green Tea!
Green tea is consistently being hailed as a powerful antioxidant. It is one of the secrets used by the people of Okinawa Japan to aid them in longevity and vibrant health. However, green tea is more than just a warm drink.
Many beauty salons are now promoting skin care treatments using green tea masks. This is because green tea is concentrated with powerful antioxidants and vitamins which aid in skin repair. These powerful antioxidants prevent free radical damage which is the leading cause of aging.
Ingredient 4 – Honey!
The nectar collected from flowers to form honey is for more than just desserts. It has become one of the main ingredients for skin care. Honey is beneficial to the skin because of its healing properties. Honey contains magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium, chlorine, sulfur, iron, phosphate, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and C as well as the presence of copper, iodine and zinc.
Honey is a great anti-bacterial agent, will open up the pores, and will deeply cleanse and detoxify the skin. It makes the mask sticky so that the hydration quality of honey will help with skin elasticity, smoothness and softness.
If you want your mask to be strictly vegan, then you can use agave nectar, which has similar properties.
Ingredient 5 – Oatmeal!
Oatmeal is more than just a breakfast food. It is the primary “active” ingredient in this facial mask because it will work to absorb excess oil on the skin and in the pores. This type of oatmeal skin mask will naturally exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells leaving your face soft and smooth. Oatmeal is also well known for its healing properties.
Directions for Your Anti Aging Facial Mask
One Final Touch!
This anti aging facial mask will do wonders for helping to rejuvenate your skin. One final touch to really enhance the effect of this facial mask is to apply a thin layer of moisturizer after you have dried your face. I recommend Synergy WorldWide’s Advanced Face Cream because it incorporates both Gen III and Gen IV Technology. The Gen III Technology will help to reprogram your fibroblasts and keratinocytes to act young again. The Gen IV Technology will help repair the damage caused by UV radiation. This final step will leave your skin moisturized, strengthened, and protected.
