To round up what is to come, we have put together three recipes, all dependant on how you would like your skin to feel. The ingredients are easy to source… bonus points if you select organic and responsibly sourced versions of them.
Nourish sensitive or dry skin: Honey is known as a humectant meaning it will work with the avocado to hydrate and lock the moisture into your skin, meanwhile anti-oxidising blueberries help to repair the skin and oats gently soothe.
Brightening, refreshing and rejuvenating. This cooling enzymic concoction will exfoliate away dead skin and grime. This one’s especially effective for those living in the city, it will blast away pollution that your skin has been exposed to in the day and get your face glowing and sparkling clean. Kaolin clay will draw impurities and dirt from your pores whilst lemon breaks down dirt and the cucumber cools and hydrates to make your skin glow.
If you’re in a mental slump, most likely so is your skin. Coffee grounds are stimulating for the skin whilst the aroma provides you with an uplifting and warming atmosphere. This one’s a deep cleanse – coffee grounds scrub away the dead skin whilst coconut oil and humectant honey collaborate to hydrate and lock in the moisture to give your skin some bounce and vitality.
