Homemade Carrot Face Mask
One large carrot (peeled & steamed)
Honey and extra virgin olive oil
Steam or boil carrot until tender (test with a fork to see if it pierces right through. Mash the carrot with a fork or masher until it reaches a
creamy consistency. Mix in half a tablespoon of honey and half a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil (not necessary if you have oily skin).
Now add some lemon juice: If you have dry skin, add about 8 drops of lemon and if you have oily skin, add up to 1 tablespoon.
Check the consistency before you apply. The mixture shouldn't be too clumpy or too runny. Add in a bit more extra virgin olive oil or water to thin it out; add a bit more honey for a thicker, paste-like texture. Let the mixture cool down so that the temperature is comfortable on your skin.
Apply the carrot mask onto a clean and bare face, even your neck if you wish, but avoid the eye and mouth area. Leave it on for 10 -15 minutes and wash it off with warm water afterwards. Pat dry and follow up with your favorite moisturizer or eye cream.
Note: be sure to patch test the mask on yourself to ensure that negative
reactions do not occur. If you ever feel any discomfort or irritation
after you've applied the mask, wash it off immediately with warm water.
