1024 683 Vanity Van

Winter weather strips your skin of its natural moisturising oils. High winds, freezing temperatures batter your face and home heating draws the moisture from the air which in turn pulls moisture out of your skin. Try these quick, organic face scrubs and masks that the Vanity Van team have put together for you to help rehydrate and rejuvenate tired complexions. There are so many natural store cupboard ingredients we can utilise – have fun with food facials !

Avocados are known for nourishing and revitalising the skin. They are packed with skin-friendly minerals such as iron, calcium, potassium, copper, magnesium, etc. Vitamin A, E and K along side unsaturated fats.
Excellent for dry skin and all skin types in the winter months.

1/4 ripe avocado, mash it up in a bowl until it turns lump free. Mix into the pulp 1 teaspoon of plain organic yogurt and 1/2 teaspoon of honey. Stir them well until you get a paste of uniform consistency.
Apply evenly onto your skin for 10-15 mins. Rinse off with Luke warm water and pat skin dry with a soft towel.

 

Banana face mask

Who needs Botox when you have Bananas! Mash up a medium sized ripe banana into a smooth paste, then gently apply it to your face and neck. Let it set for 10-20 mins then rinse it off with cold water.
