Health and Fitness: Food Facials

Hola Friends!

Grapefruit makes for a yummy snack, but this power fruit’s uses extend far beyond the kitchen. You can use grapefruit to make a facial mask for your skin. The citric acid in grapefruits helps to exfoliate dead skin and boost collagen, and the vitamin C in the fruit brightens and tones your complexion.  Source: Livestrong 

Since I was leading the cooking and nutrition portion of the weekend, I felt it only necessary to cover our bodies in food too :) Made with everything we have on hand in the house and all local ingredients….Yeah!

Who knew a facial could be SO simple…and economical!?

What you’ll need:

1/2 a grapefruit, Zest of 1 Grapefruit, 1 Egg yolk, 1 T Coconut oil, 1/4 cup oats.  Blend it all together and lather on your.  Wait 20 minutes (we painted our nails and whale watched!)  Then rinse off!

Hello Hottie!

I’m actually making the laftovers into pancakes in the morning :) we’ll see.

Let’s start making Food Facials every Sunday.
