DIY Facial

I've been asked to share some Do It Yourself Facials in the past, but I haven't uploaded anything on them. The reason is...I wanted to test out and gather a few that really stand out to me. Made from raw ingredients that are most of the time found in your kitchen, these ingredients will help your skin with specific problem areas. First I will give you some great facts about the things used, then I will give you a recipe and instructions to follow. I hope you see amazing results and learn the benefits from fresh 
facials with beautifying ingredients. ENJOY!

AVOCADO
Avocados (sometimes also called avacado) are natures finest creations from which you can obtain organic avocado oil for hair rich in vitamin A, D and of course E. They also contain lots of potassium, lecithin which are good at keeping your skin and hair younger, but these are only a few benefits of avocado oil. It also holds beta-carotene which is important for the health of your eyes; it has quality proteins and more than 22% of essential unsaturated acids.

CUCUMBER

 There are many beneficial nutrients (as well as fiber) in the tough cucumber skin. However, main-stream cucumbers you see in a regular produce isle are frequently covered in insect, animal or petroleum-based wax, which offsets the benefits in my books, especially given that you never know which one it is. (So buy organic!) Cucumber’s flesh is mostly water, but it also contains ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and caffeic acid – these nutrients help soothe skin irritations and reduce swelling. Which is the primary reason cucumber has been a “skin care” product since the beginning of time. Cucumber is a great source of silica, which is an essential component of healthy connective tissue. Cucumber juice (as a source of silica) is great for improving complexion and health of skin, plus it is naturally hydrating.
