During a recent class one of my students called vitamins e, a, and beta carotene “beautimins.” Yes exactly! From that moment forward I’ve thought about a host of things as beautimins: getting enough sleep, yoga practice, drinking warm water…
Nature provides us with many powerful sources for beautamins, and 0among my favorites is the happy carrot. Carrots (and many other vegetables) are orange rockets filled with major skin boosting beautimins , e, a and beta carotene.
Crisp fall days , all pumpkin spice and butternut squash soup, usher in the season of dry skin. To protect this most important organ, (skin is our protector) I turn to super rich, beautimin packed yogurt carrot face mask.
To make this beautiful beautimin you’ll need:
One medium carrot, cleaned and steamed.
¼ cup of yogurt (I use coconut yogurt and adjust the amount if you like)
tablespoon of hone (I use honey for medicinal purposes only and purchase from compassionate bee keepers http://www.healthberryfarm.com/)
Place these ingredients in the food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Lather on your face, don’t forget your lips, and massage the excess into you hands. Leave for 5-15 minutes. For fun at the end lick your lips (yes it’s edible). Remove by splashing with warm water and a little cool water to seal in the beautimins. Gently pat your face dry, never rub. Take a few minutes to enjoy the feelings and the warm glow this delicious power mask provides.
Place leftover mask in a jar in the refrigerator and you can enjoy it for 2 weeks.
With your next batch experiment by adding turmeric, essential oils or any other ingredients you like (beware some ingredients aren’t edible). Please share your modifications, as I love learning from your adventures.
