If you are a huge fan of natural skin care treatments and don't believe in paying
hundreds of dollars to keep your skin complexion looking youthfully smooth, then
you are going to love what I am about to share with you today – sweet potato facial.
You have probably heard that sweet potatoes are more nutritious than any variety
of regular white potatoes, but this vibrantly orange root vegetable can also do miracles
for your skin.
Packed with a slew of potent wrinkle-fighting nutrients, notably Vitamin A (in the
form of beta-carotene), sweet potato protects your skin free radicals from pollution
and UV exposure to stop visible signs of premature skin aging.
It also contains Vitamin C, which is famously known to improve skin firmness while
softening fine lines and wrinkles on mature skin.
The deep skin-moisturizing qualities of sour cream and coconut oil found in this
homemade sweet potato face mask recipe help boost skin hydration, leaving you with
skin that feels supremely smooth and elegantly soft to the touch.
This oh-so-relaxing sweet potato facial mask benefits all skin types and is especially
great if your skin is seriously dry, scaly and flaky due to winter’s harsh cold weather
and around-the-clock indoor heating. Furthermore, it also doubles as an incredibly
moisturizing mask to nourish and revive severely dry, chapped hands.
Before you get too excited, I want you to prepare your face by following these two
simple steps. First, remove all makeup and wash your face with a mild cleanser. Then
do a facial steam to open pores on your face and allow the sweet potato mask to penetrate
deep into your skin.
Fill a medium saucepan with water and brought it to the boil. Remove from heat and
pour into a large bowl if you like. Add 1-2 drops lavender oil for an extra relaxing
steam (optional). Lean over the steam, covering your head with a towel to trap the
steam, for 5-10 minutes. Gently pat dry and now you are ready for your DIY sweet
Homemade Sweet Potato Facial Mask Recipe
You will need these simple ingredients:
1 sweet potato
1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil (or olive oil)
1 tablespoon sour cream (or plain yogurt)
1 teaspoon raw manuka honey
How to make sweet potato face mask at home
1. Peel your sweet potato with a swivel peeler and boil for about 15 minutes or
until it falls apart with a fork. Don’t toss the cooking water; you can use it as
a foot soak to soften dry rough heels.
2. Place in a food processor or blender, then add coconut oil, sour cream and honey.
Blend until you have an extremely smooth texture.
3. Glide onto your clean, very eager face and neck. Make sure to keep the eye area
clear. Lie down, relax and wait for 20 minutes before you rinse off. Apply your favorite
toner and moisturizer to lock in softness.
