Kiwi-Cucumber Face Mask
Kiwi and cucumber are both antioxidant rich and incredibly hydrating. This mask also includes honey and avocado, whose oils, vitamins, and mineral content make a wonderful natural skin moisturizer.
2 kiwis, peeled
2 small cucumbers, peeled
1 tablespoon raw honey
1⁄2 avocado, pitted and peeled
In your juicer, juice the kiwis and cucumbers and reserve the juice to drink (yum!). Remove the pulp from the juicer and place it in a mixing bowl. Add the honey and avocado and mash everything together until creamy. Apply the mask to your face, avoiding the eyes and mouth area, and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. To remove the mask, wash it off gently with warm water. Enjoy your glow!
