Posted Tuesday June 5, 2012 3:57 PM GMT
If we were to pick a favorite out of all the facial masks we’ve tried, this would be it.
Full of incredibly beneficial ingredients, this concoction lends skin all the nutrients and vitamins it needs to put off that healthy glow we all want so much!
The main additive, parsley, is cocked full of vitamins K, C and iron. Together, they work together to calm sebaceous glands, which reduces the amount of oil produced by skin, reduces any redness or irritation, turning out a more balanced skin tone and also helps to reduce and smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
See what we mean? This is the mother of all masks and you can make this in your very own home! Most of the items you’ll need, you should already have on hand! So, go on and treat your skin to this fabulous balancing mask!
What you’ll need:
- 1/8 Cups fresh parsley
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tsp cocoa powder
- 1 Tbsp sour cream
- Cut up the fresh parsley and then place into a small pot with the olive oil. Turn heat on to low for 10 minutes.
- Strain the oil into a separate bowl and set aside. Place the oil-soaked parsley into a blender or food processor along with the cocoa powder and sour cream. Blend well.
- Spread mixture onto face and leave on for 20 minutes.
- Rinse of with warm water and be sure to moisturize afterwards.
*To make for an even more pampered experience, throw some cucumber slices on your eyes while the mask sets to de-puff your peepers!
