Honey Raspberry Antioxidant Face Mask

I have another great skin care recipe with raspberries for you - my honey raspberry antioxidant face mask. These berries have been great to work with because they are so perfectly smashable, unlike blues and strawberries. You can easily mash these red raspberries (or you could use blackberries) into a wet, pasty consistency, perfect for making wearable beauty masks. 

So onto the why of these ingredients. Raspberries a good source of skin healing vitamin E and they are packed with antioxidants to help protect your precious skin cells from free radical damage. I think wearing some type of antioxidant face mask at least twice a month is a great way to help slow the skin aging and deterioration process. You can try one of my homemade skin care recipes, but there are also plenty of great face masks that you can buy that are loaded with antioxidant ingredients. 

Cocoa is a tasty source of these free radical fighting nutrients. Just be sure to use a high-quality organic cocoa, the more unrefined the better. 

Honey, and I mean raw, organic honey, is another staple diy beauty care ingredient. You get a nice blend of trace minerals. Honey is naturally anti-bacterial. It also acts as a humecant, protecting your skin from moisture loss. 

I also add a tad of grape seed oil to help smooth and nourish. There are not actually a high amount of antioxidants in the oil, you have to go for grape seed extract for that, but the oil is a great source of moisturizing fatty acids to keep your skin soft and supple. 

To make this honey raspberry antioxidant face mask, you will need:

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 raspberries (if using your frozen berries, make sure they are completely thawed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon grape seed oil

Mash the berries. Stir into the oil and honey until well mixed. Mix in your cocoa. Smear over your clean skin and enjoy this antioxidant-packed skin treat.
