It’s freezing (actually way below freezing) and whether you are curled up at home with a fluffy quilt and the latest episode of The Crown or are trudging through the frosty streets on wayward errands, you skin (and soul) could use some cozy comforting. Right?
This super-simple face mask will take care of both with its warmth-inducing properties, which are perfect for relaxing the facial muscles and promoting blood flow, thereby resulting in gorgeously smooth and glowing skin. Carrots, in the meantime, are a potent source of youth preserving beta-carotene, while sweet potato has loads of puffiness-busting potassium. Milk and egg yolks round up the formula with complexion-friendly vitamins, proteins and other nutrients.
The best part? Everything is already in your refrigerator, so you don’t need to go out in the cold!
1. Steam the vegetables, then peel and mask them together.
2. Add the milk and egg yolk; mix everything till it reaches the consistency of thick cream.
3. Apply a generous layer of the mask to your face while it’s still warm (but not hot – you don’t want to burn your skin!).
4. Leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse away with warm water.
