I love making beauty products from natural ingredients, a lot of times that means using food. I can usually find everything I need in my pantry or refrigerator. I love this facial treatment because I always have the ingredients on hand, and its so simple.

Blueberries are known for their antioxidant power, and they are filled with vitamin C and E. This treatment is awesome for adding hydration to the skin, and leaving it super soft. If you are looking to get rid of dead skin just add about a tsp of sugar to the ingredients for extra exfoliation qualities. The hardest part is trying not to eat the berries while you make it.

1/4 cup local organic blueberries (they provide the most antioxidant power if they were just picked)
1 tbsp raw organic honey
1 tbsp organic olive oil

1. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend well.
2. Evenly apply all over the face, leaving room around the eyes and mouth.
3. Leave the masque on for 5 minutes allowing it to fully sink in hydrating and nourishing the skin.
4. Remove the masque with a damp cloth.

It does aid in reducing redness associated with Acne, I have found that just using straight organic honey on a blemish overnight really helps reduce the size as well.
