Revitalizing, natural face mask your skin will drink up!

                                                                   The facial you already have...  

  Actually putting aside time to put on a face mask is one of the biggest favors you can do for your skin. Enjoying a face mask while watching TV or doing the laundry can go a long way—and you don’t even have to go to the drugstore.. ‘Cause guess what!? You already have the ingredients in your kitchen, girlfran!
And I know what you’re asking, you’re saying, “now Annie, dahling, why would I want to make my OWN face mask when I could just drive my Bentley to the store and BUY some shitty $65.00 facewash?” 

  Why should you make your OWN face mask, you say? Well I’ll tell you why! Now’a’days more than ever- beauty products contain artificial chemicals. For instance, sodium lauryl sulphate- ever heard of it? No, probably not since it’s the ugly stepchild ingredient those big facewash distributors don’t want you knowing about. They basically strip your face of natural oils and are sometimes even contaminated with a carcinogen called 1,4-dioxane. (BBM “cant look” face).. Not convinced? What about polyethylene glycol that can be found in almost any of your skincare products? This petroleum additive dehydrates your skin and leaves it vulnerable to even more bacteria. So, now that I’ve convinced you, go to your kitchen… and cook up this facemask (that I swear by) before bed tonight:

ABJ’s Revitalizing Face Mask

  • ½ cup chopped cucumber
  • ½ cup chopped avocado
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp. powdered milk
(BTW- the vitamins in the avocado hydrate your skin without drying it out, beautifully.)

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, apply the mask to your face, neck and décolletage using circular motions. Leave on for 30 min... Rinse and finish w/ cold water rinse. Enjoy your beateeful, hydrated, young looking skin, beauties!
