Who says that you need to book a trip to the spa to enjoy a refreshing facial mask or skin treatment? Here are two spa quality skincare recipes to enjoy at home with your girlfriends.
Avocado Banana Mask (combination skin)
Bananas contain potassium and vitamins A, B, C and E, which soften, nourish and moisturize leaving your skin feeling smooth.
1/4 ripe banana
1 tablespoon plain yogurt
1/4 ripe avocado
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
Puree all ingredients in blender. Apply to face 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
Margarita Salt Body Buffer
Lime and tequila are natural antiseptics so help detoxify skin and improve tone and texture. Good for hands – felt so soft afterwards.
Makes 1 1/2 cups (1/4 cup per body)
1 cup fine sea salt
Juice of one lime
2 ounces olive oil
3/4 ounces white tequila
In bowl, mix together sea salt, olive oil, lime, and white tequila. In the shower, rub mixture onto damp skin in gentle circular motion. If salt feels too gritty, add more olive oil.
