Customize Your Facial: How to Master Multi-Masking + 3 Simple Recipes—Spa Days at Home

I’ve been on the natural skin care path for some time now. Raw honey, apple cider vinegar, essential oils, and baking soda are all staples in my beauty regimen. As you know by now, experimentation is key to this process. And that is what OiB is all about, grabbing that piece of knowledge and make it yours to own, use and ideal propagate in your own circle. It takes time and dedication.

I personally love when I discover a new recipe that I can reexploxe at home in my bathroom. There is no one size fits all beauty routine. Recently, I’ve started to experiment with multi-masking. The concept behind multi-masking is simple: Feed your skin what it needs by using different masks at the same time that are specific to each area of your skin.

Here’s a crash course in multi-masking with 3 face mask recipes for T-zone, eyes and dry areas. Because you too might want to rethink applying a single mask to your entire face.

Mask 1: Clay T-Zone Mask

The t-zone area for many usually produces the most oil and can be the home of breakouts. You’ll want to use this mask on the forehead, chin and nose region, as it’s designed to control oil, fight bacteria and curb acne. Try this Clay and Witch Hazel mask to pull out those impurities, unclog your pores, and tighten the t-zone area.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon witch hazel
  • 1 teaspoon bentonite clay
  • 2 drops lemon essential oil (optional)

Directions

  1. Combine ingredients and stir until blended. Don’t use metal spoons or bowls to mix.
  2. Apply to your forehead, chin, and nose with clean fingers and leave on for 10 minutes. Super oily skin types can l
  3. Leave on for up to 20 minutes.
  4. Rinse off with warm water.

 

Mask 2: Carrot Eye Area Mask

The area around the eyes show signs of aging the quickest because this area of the skin has the fewest oil glands, making it prone to dehydration and fine lines. You’ll want to treat the eye area with it’s own powerful mask to best fight fine lines and firm the skin. A mask designed to fight wrinkles can be created with just a few ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded carrot. Use a regular carrot, not a baby carrot. Baby carrots loose a lot of their natural nutrients when turned into little nubs.
  • 1 teaspoon aloe vera

Directions

  1. Combine egg white, carrot and aloe vera in a small bowl. Beat mixture together with a fork until frothy (about 1 minute).
  2. With clean hands or a brush, apply the mask around and under the eyes. Avoid the eyelids because you don’t want to get it in your eyes.
  3. Let the mask dry for at least 15 minutes or up to 30 minutes. You will definitely feel the mask tightening your skin! But if it gets uncomfortable, go ahead and remove it.
  4. Use a soft, wet towel to gently clean off the mask.

Mask 3 – Vitamin E and Avocado Mask for Outer Edges/Dry Patches

The sections around the outer edges of the face, usually the neck, temples, and outer cheeks, can also be dry and often need extra hydration. Choose a mask that will help retain your own skin’s moisture. This vitamin E and honey mask will do just that, and the oil from the avocado will be the hydrating boost for those dry patches that sometimes can make the skin feel tight or cracked.

Why I Love Avocado & You Should Too!

If you aren’t totally nuts about the avocado yet, I recommend you to step outside your cooking routine and give this versatile, nutritious, creamy and uniquely delicious fruit a chance. At the end of my post, I promise, you will run to get your avocado stock at the veggie market down your road!

Health Benefits of Avocado.

Avocados are well-known for their excellent healthy monounsaturated fats that protect your heart, but they’re also high in many other nutrients aside from fat.

  1. Never fear the fat in avocados either. They help lower bad cholesterol in the body and prevent the absorption of harmful fats.
  2. Plus, calories and fat from healthy plant-based foods are much higher quality foods than processed foods and animal products higher in calories and fats.
  3. Avocados have been linked to a reduced risk for heart disease, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and have been found helpful for maintaining a healthy body weight and blood sugar levels. The delicious fruit even has specific phytonutrients that have been linked to preventing cancer and lowering stress.

Remember, quality over quantity – your body knows the difference!

How to use Avocado in Your Kitchen

There are so many ways you can use this fruit. Avocados make a great snack raw with a little salt or nut cheese, are the main ingredient in guacamole, and the perfect addition to make salads decadent and filling. But they’re also quite useful in cooking.

BAKED

Seared or grilled avocados are a treat! They’re also wonderful on pizzas, even instead of the cheese, and mashed or sliced into casseroles. Get started with a Caesar Salad Pizza or a Breakfast Tortilla Pesto Pizza.

PAN FRIED

Wonderful in stir fries, especially with kale and tempeh, avocado minimizes the need for oil in cooking. You can even grill or bake them before tossing them on a bed of greens for a warm, not-so-raw salad, soothing for the winter months.

SOUPS

Raw, blended soups are super creamy with avocado, but lighter than they would be with cashews. We love gazpacho-style cold soups with green tomatoes or cucumbers, but there are a lot more unique options, as well. Try this Raw Carrot Avocado Soup or Raw Peas and Mint Avocado Soup.

SMOOTHIES

Green and fruit smoothies are wonderful with avocados, but most of all we enjoy the fluffiness of a smoothie with avos, which is why they’re so perfect for chocolate mousse. Simply, with cocoa powder, with or without bananas, a dash of sweetener, perhaps some cinnamon, and cayenne or espresso powder for zest, chocolate mousse is the perfect dessert for a health-conscious, time-pressed chocolate lover.

DRESSINGS

As an alternative to just chopping up avocados for salads, they can also be turned into a dressing for the whole salad. They even do a wonderful job of dressing up pasta and whole grains. Mix into a tahini dressing, or with lemon or cucumber. Try it on a Raw Zucchini Pasta and Creamy Avocado Cucumber Sauce and a Mesquite Avocado-Kale Salad.

DIPS

In addition to guacamole, avocado can be turned into a lot of different creamy dips, like Creamy Avocado Basil Dip and even Garlic Herb Avocado Cream Cheese.
