Spring Hydration (Hydrating boost for over dry skin)

Use lightly shredded cucumbers and mix with yogurt to give your skin a refreshing hydrating boost. Following this, it’s best to leave on for 20 minutes and rinse accordingly.

Glow Facial (Helps to rejuvenate skin cells)

8 to 10 Leaves of Spinach

½ Banana

A few drops of avocado oil

Blend lightly, (just enough to spread evenly on your face) leave on for 30 minutes, and rinse accordingly.

Too much shine! (Great for overactive oil glands)

Yogurt is a great base for soothing and hydrating the skin. As an extra bonus, add strawberries to your yogurt if you have oily skin or are acne prone. It’s best to leave the facial treatment on for 20 minutes and rinse accordingly.
