Needless to say, a pamper-me evening is completely required. I can't wait to settle down with a great book, fantastic cup of tea, a warm bath and a clarifying face mask. Plus, this one only contains two ingredients...
Anti-Aging Cantaloupe Face Mask
1/8 cup mashed (or blended) cantaloupe
1 TBSP warm honey (try and use organic if you can)
This is such an easy recipe. Put your honey in a little glass bowl and soak the bottom in hot water until the honey is runny. (Ha, that rhymed.) Add in your cantaloupe and mix well. Spread on cleansed face and relax with the mask on for about 15 - 20 minutes. (Sometimes, the cantaloupe will make this mixture extra runny which is why soaking in the tub might be nice. If it is really runny before you spread it on your face add a bit more honey.) Rinse off with war water and then cool water to close the pores. Moisturize right away afterwards.
Why this works?? If cantaloupe is good enough for Cindy Crawford's skin care line, Meaningful Beauty, then we know it's good stuff. Ha, no seriously, cantaloupe is loaded with sun-protecting betacarotene which keeps your skin looking young, feeling healthy and is supposedly known for its anticancer properties. Cantaloupe is also known to have a powerful anti-aging property within the melon portion.
If you love masks that are easy to make, smell great AND give great results right away then try this recipe out. Plus, you'll also have a great dessert to bring with you in the tub!! Happy masking ladies!
