Pampering

So you all made that cacao-avocado pudding right?
Awesome.
Now do this.

My face has been in this funky, super dry state since the beginning of the year and nothing was helping.
New moisturizer. Nope.
Being overly hydrated. Nope.
Eating right. Nope.
Nothing.
I don't even wear make up for the most part. So it was just irritating.
I made the pudding, shared the recipe and a girl in a group of mine mentioned using that as a face mask once, probably sans cinnamon and all that.
Then looking on this amazing website today I saw the cacao avocado face mask recipe and I just had to use some of the left over pudding for my poor, dry face.
Cinnamon and all.
(Of course those of you with super sensitive skin I would suggest leaving out the "spices" and just using the cacao, avocado and honey instead of agave like the recipe on Rawmazing says.)
I am so glad I did!
No more dry spots AT ALL.
My face feels amazing and smooth and I can tell it's "glowing" from all the lovely nutrients it got.
Then I followed it up with some coconut oil and it's in heaven.
I know I didn't take a before photo that showed the dryness but it was there, trust me.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and don't forget to pamper yourselves every once in a while...if not more. :D

Peace and Love!

I'm always interested in homemade facial masks, but with weird food allergies and sensitive skin, I'm always worried to try it... glad it worked for you though! Your frecklely face looks great. :)
