Summer is all about sun-kissed skin (in Houston it’s hard to not just go from pale to lobster) salty hair and sandy feet (if you get the chance to hoop down to Galveston) Since moving to Houston we LOVE getting our daily dose of vitamin D, but the summer months can definitely take a toll on my skin. Even the most sunscreen savvy of us know that SPF and sunhats can only do so much when you live in such a hot climate! The hard truth is that those freckles will pop up, and your skin will need some extra TLC during the summer months.
With this in mind, I decided to research some great recipes for you to make yourself to help your skin! This all natural, amazing organic face mask will leave your skin feeling moisturized, glowy and exfoliated all at once.
Using coconut oil, which soothes, honey, which detoxifies, green tea, which gives an antioxidant boost, and lemon, which brightens. It’s such a treat for your skin…!!
Green Tea Honey Coconut Face Mask
1 teaspoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon green tea leaves (or about ½ the amount of leaves that come in 1 tea bag)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
What to do…
1. Mix together your honey, coconut oil lemon juice and green tea leaves. You can do this using a fork, just make sure that it is thoroughly mixed together and that the coconut oil is not separating.
2. Using your finger or a swab, spread evenly on face.
3. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water and apply your favorite moisturizer
It’s that simple! You can thank me later ;)!
