12. Moisturizing Facial
For a moisturizing facial that revitalizes your skin from the ravages of dry air and stress, try an avocado face mask. Mash a ripe avocado with a teaspoon of plain yogurt, a teaspoon of olive oil, and a dash of honey. Apply to your clean face and leave on for 15 minutes. Wash off with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel.
11. Turmeric Face Mask
Turmeric is a deep golden orange spice with anti-inflammatory properties that can be beneficial when applied topically to your skin. To make a simple turmeric face mask, make a paste by combining plain yogurt, a dab of honey, and a tablespoon of turmeric. Apply to your clean, dry face and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Wash off with warm water. You can experiment with other ingredients in this face mask. Try turmeric mixed with coconut oil for a moisturizing mask that leaves your skin soft and supple. Be careful to keep turmeric away from your clothing, as it can stain.
10. Under Eyes
The delicate skin under your eyes can be the first place to reveal the ravages of exhaustion, dry air, and inflammation. You may be accustomed to sipping a cup of joe in the morning for the benefits of caffeine to your system, but you can also treat your skin to the topical benefits of caffeine. Try Real Food RN’s recipe for a Caffeine Eye Serum using coffee grounds, almond oil, and castor oil. Another tried and true antidote to puffy eyes is to use cool slices of cucumber. Slice up a cucumber, place one chilled slice on each eye, and relax for 15 minutes. The vitamin C of the cucumber can rejuvenate tired skin cells and folic acid can stimulate antioxidants in your skin.
