A full day of sun, sand and sea water, though incredibly nourishing for the soul, can be taxing on your skin and hair. Feed your dry skin with our moisturising, antioxidant packed pomegranate, yoghurt and honey face mask and follow with your favourite luk beautifood clean eating recipe to glow from the inside out.
Pomegranate is packed full of rich antioxidants which protect collagen thereby slows down the appearance of fine lines caused by sun exposure. They also contain ellagic acid which helps to prevent wrinkles.
Pomegranate combined with yoghurt is also incredibly soothing for those with dry, irritated skin – perfect if you’ve been in the sun and surf all day. Combined with the cleansing, moisturising properties of honey, this mask will have your skin looking radiant, soft and hydrated by dinner time, particularly if you have some organic rosehip oil on hand to add to follow after you’ve rinsed the mask off.
1. Combine 2 tablespoons of organic unflavoured yoghurt with 1 teaspoon of honey
2. Add 1 teaspoon of home made or store bought organic pomegranate juice and stir well
[TIP: for extra aroma and antioxidants you can add zest of a lime]
3. Stir well
4. Apply to face and leave for 10-15 minutes
5. Rinse face with warm water and pat dry. Follow with some organic rose hip oil or your favourite natural moisturiser
Relax and Enjoy
