Ingredients:

1 Large Organic Carrot

½ Tablespoon Pure Extra Virgin Olive Oil

½ Tablespoon Pure Honey

5 Drops of Lemon Juice

Prep:

Peel the carrot then steam the carrot until soft. Mash the carrot with a fork in a mixing bowl until smooth. Pour in the honey and olive oil and blend well. Add the lemon juice then combine together. Make sure the carrot face mask is warm (not hot) then apply to your clean face and neck and leave on your skin for 20 minutes. Gently pat dry with a hand towel then apply an oil-free moisturizer.

Benefits:

Carrots are a natural antiseptic and help soothe irritated skin, while leaving your skin feeling fresh and healthy. Beta Carotene is in carrots and is an excellent ingredient for anti-aging skin due to it protecting from free radicals which can damage and break down the skin. Carrot seed oil has been proven to cleanse the skin of impurities and acne-causing bacteria, causing your acne to decrease and allowing your skin to be clear and beautiful. Carrot seed oil will add moisture to your skin without causing your skin to break out or feel greasy.

Extra virgin olive oil is great for adding hydration to your skin without making you break out or clogging your pores.

Honey contains numerous anti-microbial properties and is a natural antioxidant. Honey fights microbial infections that cause acne without irritating your skin. This sweet goodness pulls out impurities from your pores that would normally stay clogged, festering bacteria that causes pimples.  Honey will also help restore your skin’s texture and reduce damage done to your skin by the sun and daily environments you come in contact with.

Lemon juice is a natural astringent and will leave your skin feeling refreshed and even your skin tone. It will also help reduce oil buildup on your skin.
