DIY: Edible Anti-Aging Face Mask

Image: (Africa)
Sometimes I can’t believe how many anti-aging products are on the market these days. Even more, many of them contain harmful ingredients, like parabens. Knowing the dangers, we still diligently purchase these products and let’s be honest, they aren’t cheap.

If you are anything like me, you probably live on a budget and would rather use something that is a little healthier and safer for you. What better way to do this than to make it yourself?
I love a good DIY because then I know exactly what is put in my products. Making it yourself allows you to avoid potential allergic reactions and of course, avoid the use of chemicals.

I believe that if what you eat is good for your skin, then what’s good for your skin should be worth eating. With that in mind, I started using this potent anti aging mask that isn’t just great for your skin, but is darn tasty!

All you need is 4 simple ingredients to make this tasty skin care recipe:

- 1 ripe Avocado
- 3 tablespoons Raw Chocolate Powder
- 1 teaspoon Matcha Green Tea
- 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

Making this face mask is super simple. Just whip all of your ingredients together until they are nice and smooth. Give your face a quick rinse then slather on your mask. I’ll warn you now, you will want to lick it off your own face! If you cool this mixture in the fridge it makes for a very tasty pudding!

Feeling vegan? Use vegan chocolate powder instead! Vegan, gluten-free, edible and effective against fighting age? Not too shabby for only 4 ingredients.

Carrying on...

Once you’ve slathered on your face mask, let it soak in for 20 minutes. When your time is up, rinse it off with lukewarm water, pat dry with a clean face towel then apply your favorite anti-aging moisturizer.

Each ingredient plays a beneficial role in the anti-aging process.

Avocados are incredibly moisturizing fruits. They are made up of 85% fatty acids (think, Omega-3’s!) and are incredibly water-dense. They are also a valuable source of vitamin E and antioxidants so they effectively fight premature signs of aging.
The power of the avocado doesn’t stop there. These little powerhouses also contain anti-inflammatory properties to reduce skin inflammation and retain your skin’s elasticity.

Raw Chocolate is not only incredibly tasty, but carcinogen crushing, antioxidant rich age-fighter. It also helps regulate your pH balance, which can cause your skin to go crazy if unbalanced.

Matcha green tea is an exotic ingredient in many Japanese green tea blends. It offers 500% more antioxidant powers than the fad fruit goji berries. It is also 10 times more powerful than regular green tea because of its polyphenol content. Polyphenols fight fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother, younger looking face.

Finally, unsweetened almond milk is a great source of vitamin E. The inclusion of this hydrating beverage is beneficial for fighting damage caused by overexposure to the sun. For the purposes of this mask, you must use unsweetened, as the sugar content in regular almond milk could wreak havoc on your skin and cause an acne outbreak.

Whether it be as a tasty treat or a potent anti-aging mask, this recipe is amazing. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
