Do Try My Homemade Brightening Anti-Aging Facial Mask for Instant Radiance!

Despite lacking a fancy label or a huge price, the best skin care treatments don't necessarily have to come from an exclusive salon or shop.  Some excellent treatments can come from your own kitchen.  In fact, you may be surprised at how well foods that you are probably eating can also help feed your skin or hair to nourish them back to health. 

The recipe that I want to share is loaded with beneficial natural beauty boosting antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins for reviving a dull complexion while whitening, moisturizing, softening, and tightening--in addition to helping with anti-aging.  
Fresh strawberries are wonderful for helping bleach skin without any harmful side effects.  This berry is also good for exfoliating due to the salicylic acid present and Omega-3 fatty acids for repairing  the cell structure to bring out a younger appearance.  Grapes also have amazing power at whitening the skin as well as softening and anti-aging effects since they have antioxidants.  Honey is jammed with moisturizing capabilities and attracts water to lock those benefits in while oatmeal tightens, tones, and helps exfoliate old skin cells to revive and usher in a fresh, glowing complexion.

Of course, there is a bit of work involved compared to opening a jar of a purchased product.  You need to shop for those items that may not be in your refrigerator and pantry to make your mask and pull out your blender to prepare it.  

Nonetheless, the results are well worth those few minutes of extra time once you see what happens after you treat your starving complexion to a proper meal.  Let your mirror be the judge and it has ruled in my favor every time.  My guess is your mirror will also pass the same judgment in your case!

My Homemade Brightening Anti-Aging Facial Mask

1/2 cup of fresh strawberries
4 green grapes
1-1/2  tablespoons of oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon of honey

Take out your blender and grind the oatmeal on high for about 30 seconds or so until its fairly fine.

Next, add the rest of the ingredients together on blend on high for about a minute.  This should have a smoothie consistency.

Apply to your freshly washed face and hide away to your bedroom or wherever you go when you want to be alone. I recommend picking the bedroom because you can relax on the bed since twenty minutes are needed for allowing this mask to work.   (You will want that privacy because you will look temporarily disgusting with these fruits plastered all over your face).  

Use that time to close your eyes, think pleasant thoughts, and then let your mind just drift during the time can help with stress as well. 

Wash the mask off your face when your time is up with lukewarm water.  Be sure to close your pores with cool water before applying your moisturizer.  

You will look better and feel more mentally refreshed!
