Fab Flaxseed Face MaskDecember 31, 2009 | 2:07 pm | Beauty tips | 2 Comments
Flax seeds, also known as linseeds can make an amazing face mask all on their own. With their omega 3′s, amino acids & minerals including iron, zinc, calcium and much more they are great for your skin.
One level teaspoon of ground flax seeds (you can buy seeds pre-ground) and one tablespoon of water is all
you need to make enough Fab Flaxseed Face Mask to cover your face with some extra to spare.
Put the water and ground flaxseed in a small pan and heat slowly until it turns to a gel like consistency. Let it cool then apply to your skin and leave for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
You can then apply your usual moisturizer. Rosehip oil is good as it contains lycopene, a phytochemical that is also found in tomatoes and is known for protecting the skin from UV damage.
