It has been a long winter over here in Canada. Hands up whoever’s skin has lost that golden summer glow? ME! ME! If you are ready for a natural glow without the use of fake tanning products, this is the mask for you. It will give you a sun kissed look without the sun. Say What?
One of the main ingredients in this mask is CARROTS! You see ladies, carrots have the magical power to turn your skin golden. The benefits of carrots for your skin are amazing here are a few reasons why:
- The beta-carotene in carrots has a natural way to stimulate the melanin in your skin and get you tanned. That is why most self tanning products on the market use beta-carotene along with many other not so good ingredients.
- Large amounts of Vitamin A keep your skin healthy, radiant and protected from the ultraviolet radiation.
- High amounts of Vitamin C aids in collagen production which prevents wrinkles and prevents aging.
I can go on and on but if you want to revive your skin tone and achieve an amazing golden glow, lets get to the mask!
- 2 fresh carrots
- 1 tbsp potato flour
- 1 egg yolk
- Peel and shred the carrots
- Combine with remaining ingredients and mix well
Cleanse your skin thoroughly! Lie down on a towel and apply the mask avoiding eye area. Let the mask sit for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water. You can use this mask everyday if your skin can tolerate it otherwise I like to use it once a week in the winter months.
