A BERRY GOOD ANTIOXIDANT-RICH FACE & BODY MASQUE

Hey Girls!! So, summer is rapidly approaching and I know you are all getting prepared by getting into shape and buying new, cute bathing suits and clothes. But what are you doing to prepare your skin??? In case you didn't know (or just plain forgot), antioxidants prevent AND repair UV damage so using them in your beauty routine is a great way to prepare your gorgeous skin for sun exposure. Follow this easy (and yummy) recipe before you hit the beach or pool and trust me, your skin will thank you  =)

Ingredients:

1/3 cup of Blueberries (Wild Blueberries would work best if you can get them because they are higher in antioxidants but if you can't get them, no worries because regular blueberries work just fine)

1/3 cup of Blackberries (Raspberries will work in a pinch if you can't get the Blackberries. The only difference is the Raspberries are slightly lower in antioxidants)

1/3 cup of Cranberries (If you can't find fresh cranberries, dried will work just fine)

1 tsp. of Fresh Oregano Leaves

1/2 tsp. of Cinnamon 

4 tbs. of Plain Yogurt

3 tbs. of Honey

Directions:

First, make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature before using.

Next, in a blender, combine the Berries, Oregano and Cinnamon. Blend on a high speed until smooth.

Now stir in the Yogurt and Honey with a spoon and transfer mixture in a shatterproof bowl.

In a warm shower, prepare your skin by exfoliating using your favorite exfoliating scrub on your whole body.

Next, step away from the water but stay in the shower and turn the water on HOT to create steam in the shower/bathroom.

Massage the mixture you've prepared on your entire body, using circular motions and continue to apply until all the mixture has been used.

Let the smoothie sit on skin for 5-10 minutes and then rinse clean with warm water.

After you dry off, apply a body lotion that is rich in Vitamin A (I recommend Mario Badescu Summer Shine Body Lotion. You can purchase it at CVS and it's $10.00 for a bottle) and always remember to apply sunscreen before sun exposure.

Just a couple side notes: This mixture can get a little messy so you may have to clean your tub when you're through. Do NOT use this mixture if you are allergic to ANY of the ingredients on the list.

Hope you dolls like this as much as me!!!  Laughing
