Anti-age autumn facial mask

Autumn, with its warm colours, gives us incredible views. All around us is coloured with shades of red and yellow, the leaves fall and the avenues take on a new appearance. But autumn gives us also extraordinary foods..tasty and colourful but above all so healthy!! Pomegranates, persimmons, pumpkins and chestnuts are an example, so I decided to use some of them to realise a TOP autumn facial mask exploiting their nutrients for an anti-age action!

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 2 tablespoons of pomegranate juice
  • 3 tablespoons persimmon pulp pureed
  • 1 tablespoon of bio honey
  • 1 tablespoon of sweet almond oil (you can find it here)

Benefits:

I chose pomegranates and persimmons for their high level of antioxidants such as carotenoids, flavonoids and vitamin E. These molecules protect the body cells against the effects of free radicals. They are generated either from our metabolic processes or due to cigarette smoking, pollution or radiations. Furthermore they contain also fibre, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin K and minerals such as magnesium and potassium. Definitely they are TOP fruits!

I decided also to add honey (tap here to read about benefits of Honey) and sweet almond oil to complete the recipe 🙂

 

Procedure:

 

  1. Cut the persimmon in slides, peel it and reduce it in small pieces.
  2. Cook them in boiling water. Once ready, let them cool down.
  3. Smash the pulp with a fork or a minipimer  to get a homogeneous compound.

 

 

 

 

 

4. Smash half pomegranate seeds with a teaspoon and collect the juice in a glass.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Add all the ingredients in a bowl:  pomegranate juice, persimmon pulp pureed, bio honey and sweet almond oil.

 

 

 

6. Mix all the ingredients together and your facial mask is ready. 😀

 

Applications:

After cleaning the face you have to apply the mixture and keeps it for 5-10 minutes. Then rinse off the mask with warm water.

NB. If you have allergic reaction to persimmons or pomegranates, I would not recommend to try it out.
