DIY Natural Skin Brightening Mask

As much as we love spending every Summer minute at the beach, salt, sun and sand can be rough on your skin. This brightening mask exfoliates and stimulates circulation in the face, resulting in a warm, rosy glow; an amazing beach beauty tip perfect for warm Summer nights. Here’s why it works: Unripe papaya contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids and high levels of papain, an enzyme that helps dissolve dead skin cells. Yogurt adds lactic acid (another alpha-hydroxy) and gives the mask a creamy texture, and honey helps skin retain moisture. When left on, the mask should tingle slightly; if you have sensitive skin or prefer a gentler exfoliation, use ripe papaya, which has less papain. Green-Papaya Brightening Mask ½ cup unripe papaya, diced1 teaspoon plain yogurt1 teaspoon honey Blend ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Apply to clean skin using fingers; leave on for 8 to 10 minutes. Rinse off using cool water and pat dry. Finish by applying a gentle moisturizer. That’s it! This DIY facial is a quick and easy way to get amazing skin. x LoveSurf DIY Natural Skin-Brightening Mask was originally published on LOVESURF BLOG Share this with a friend:

DIY: Leave-In Conditioning Spray

With the warm weather and water arriving it is time to start swimming again!  But whether you are out floating in a pool, surfing in an ocean, or paddling through a lake, it’s important to keep your hair moisturized and protected from summer’s conditions. Chlorine, salt water, and the sun can cause your hair to dry out but by spraying a leave-in conditioner onto your hair at the end of your beach day, you can protect your hair while making it look shiny and healthy at the same time. Take 1 cup of water and add a few mint leaves to it and bring it to a boil. Once it cools, strain it and add quarter to half a cup of jojoba oil to it, depending on how dry or oily your hair is. Take more oil if you have dry hair. Transfer the contents to a spray bottle and keep in a cool place. Shake well before each use and spray on damp hair before getting out of the shower. The conditioner will soften the hair from root to tip and also prevent any scalp infections. x LOVESURF DIY: Leave-In Conditioning Spray was originally published on THE LOVESURF …
