SeaMade: Lux Mermaid | Post-Sun Face Mask

I thank the sunshine for its bronzing touch and the saltwater for keeping my pores clear, but too much can be detrimental to the skin. After a long beach day my skin is always in desperate need of hydration. In order to keep my face looking youthful and clean, I whipped up this easy at-home face mask. Cheers!

Ingredient benefits: avocado hydrates, honey has antibacterial properties, lemon brightens skin and cleanses pores, and bentonite clay extracts toxins.

Makes enough for two servings.
1 Avocado
1 Tablespoon honey (Manuka is best but any organic honey will do)
3 Tablespoons of bentonite clay* (optional, see note)
Juice of 1 lemon

Mash and mix all ingredients in a bowl.
Let it sit in the fridge for about 20 minutes to thicken and gain an extra cooling affect.
Apply a thick layer and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
Wash off and voila- beautiful lux mermaid face!

*Betonite clay is a calcium clay that has powerful detoxification properties. It can be found in any health food store or online for about $5 for a hefty jar. If left out, the mask will be hydrating, but will lose it’s purifying factor.
