Apricot face mask.

Today at the store, I was very happy to find fresh organic apricots. Along with peaches, they are my very favorite fruit. Summer is on its way:)))  Fresh, ripe apricots are also one of the best face mask bases for aging, devitalized and dull skin. Very nourishing and high in vitamin A, this delicious fruit promotes cellular regeneration and prevents wrinkles.

Apricot is said to have originated in China.  From there it spread to other parts of Asia and eventually found its way to Greece and Italy. As food, apricot is quite laxative and rates high in alkalinity. It contains cobalt and is a very good choice for anyone with anemic tendencies. So, eat plenty!

To whip up your very own, totally effective, gloriously smelling  apricot face mask you will need the following:
1 ripe apricot
1 tsp. of honey ( manuka honey if you can get your hands on it)
1 tsp. of apricot oil,  rosehip or almond oil
You can stop right here (it will make a lovely mask) or you can boost it a bit with high on antioxidants matcha tea - just a pinch will do and 1/2 tsp. of white clay.
I usually blend the ingredients in the magic bullet but you can use a fork to mash up the fruit and just add the rest.
Apply generously to a cleansed face, neck and upper chest.
Cover your eyes with thinly sliced cucumber and lie down for 15 min.
Rinse with lukewarm water and moisturize.
This healthy concoction from the kitchen will leave your skin glowing, hydrated and delicately scented.
