Homemade skincare anyone? After our blog showcasing what purees could double as face masks, it got us thinking, “Could we create tailored skincare with the Babycook?” The answer, was YES. Here are some of our favorite masks we created.
- Avocado Honey – It’s no secret Avocado has become immensely popular in the last few years. Besides being a healthy source of vitamins and minerals to nourish the inside, applying it topically has benefits, too. A topical application of this avocado and honey mask can help you combat dry skin due to its high content of vitamin E.
Recipe: Place one small avocado into the Babycook. Add in 1 table spoon of honey. Pulse to blend until evenly mixed. Apply to clean skin for about 15 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry with a towel.
- Citrus Nectarine – Everyone knows vitamin C is great for immunity, but it’s also fabulous for rejuvenating your skin cells, too. Mixed with orange, peach, and sugar to gently remove dead skin cells this mask will not disappoint!
Recipe: Place ½ an orange and one peach into the Babycook. Place one table spoon of sugar in the bowl, too. Blend until evenly mixed. Apply to clean skin for about 15 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry with a towel.
- Honey Spirulina – Honey, this is something new! Spirulina is an algae often referred to as a super food. Besides riding the body of toxins, it increases skin metabolism to promote faster skin cell turnover and healing. In addition to its moisturizing qualities, Honey is also anti-bacterial, and can aid in balancing bacteria on the face.
Recipe: Place one table spoon of spirulina into a bowl, followed by a ¼ cup of honey. Mix together with a spoon until evenly mixed. Apply to clean skin for about 15 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry with a towel.
- Rose Sugar Scrub – If you’ve seen our Blueberry Rose Puree, then you may now we are all about FLOWER power lately. This simple scrub can be used for the lips, face or body. Rose oil is great for its anti-inflammatory properties that aid in the reduction of redness and inflammation.
Recipe: Measurements depend on what area of body the scrub is used for. Place 1 cup of sugar in the Babycook, followed by ½ cup of grapeseed oil. Then place the petals from 2 roses into the bowl. Mixed until evenly distributed. You may also add a few drops of rose oil, too! Apply to clean skin for about 15 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry with a towel.
