Our busy lives often dictate the choices we make, especially when it comes to days of celebration and thanks. Unfortunately that can often involve a rushed trip down to Tescos or Asda to pick up a bagful of overpriced chocolates and generic gifts labeled ‘mother’s day ideas’. This year why not try something new & creative that will not only really impress your mum but probably help you save a few quid at the same time.
As you may have noticed we are massive fans of blueberries here at beauty naturale and we thought that one last celebration of the nations favourite super-fruit would not go a miss. Check out below for a fantastic recipe for that mothers day gift!
Grapeseed & Blueberry Face Mask
Blueberries are naturally rich in Vitamin C and contain something called anthocyanins, which boost collagen levels in the skin. Grapeseed oil is non-greasy, yet highly nourishing. It it rich is essential fatty acids, making it a superior anti-aging oil.
This recipie is for a treatment of 5 masks (just double for ten)
-Combine 1 cup of blueberries and 6 tablespoons of grapeseed oil. Puree in the blender.
-Add to a nice jar and wrap, make sure that the jar is well sealed, ikea have some great ones for around £4.00.
-If you think it looks a tittle thin add a small amount of pure honey.
-This mask should be applied to the skin with a facial brush and rinse off after 10 minutes. Voilà!
