Enlighten Up Honey Facial Mask

Bring out your playful glow with this honey facial mask.

Like most of you, my desk is somewhat of an altar. I’ve placed various trinkets that I love strategically around me — the Boyds stuffed bear with the serenity prayer that was among my grandmother’s possessions when she passed, a silly photo booth pic of me and spa boy, a thank you card from someone who touched my heart with her generosity. Among these many treasures is a pocket book from Sedona artist, Andrea Smith, called “Enlighten Up.” Andrea’s freeform doodlings are intertwined with precious words like: “Be LIGHT: Angels fly because they take themselves lightly.” Just having it within my sight makes me smile. Andrea is a gifted artist but this lighthearted book for the child in all of us reminds me that play is just as important as working hard.

Enlighten-up

That said, I give you an excuse to play and feel good in the process. Whip this yogurt and honey facial mask up, slather it on, crank up your favorite tunes or grab a juicy book and enlighten up. This mask will gently exfoliate, hydrate and give circulation a boost.

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Here’s what you do:

Mix the ingredients together in a bowl. Massage the mask onto a clean face and leave it on for up to 5 minutes. Remove with a warm face cloth, gently massaging your skin to lift dead skin cells as you go. Follow up with a spritz of witch hazel or splash of cool water and a moisturizer.

Now smile!
