Avocados are one of the healthiest foods on our planet. This makes sense since they contain the two essential fatty acids omega-6 and omega-9 (which contribute to skin’s suppleness and help the regeneration of skin and tissue), vitamin E moisturizing properties, and chlorophyll (the essential matter in plant life, which helps to regenerate our skin cells). Avocados are perfect for dry skin since they absorb easily into the skin.
Plain or organic yogurt is a superior hydrating agent for the skin since it’s loaded with lactic acid, which helps to effectively shed dead skin cells and revitalize new skin cell growth.
Depending on your skin needs, white and/or green tea are an incredible way to add skin softening antioxidants to your facial. Brew a cup of tea stronger than you normally would (use 3 teabags in the place of 1), then place in the refrigerator to cool. White tea soothes and moisturizes skin giving it a healthy glow. Green tea strengthens and tones, improving the regeneration capability of the skin (great for anti-aging benefits).
