It’s like a power green smoothie, for your face! Antioxidant-rich avocado contains a ton of vitamin C, which is needed for the creation of elastin and collagen, both responsible for maintaining the skin’s firmness. Patchouli essential oil was added since it tightens and tones sagging skin(use patchouli sparingly, its scent can be overwhelming and off-putting to some.) or you can use any essential oil of your liking really. Besides its enchanting aroma, lavender oil is a circulatory stimulant that has soothing moisturizing properties that increases blood flow to the skin. This improves the skin’s appearance because it increases the delivery of nutrients and oxygen. The potent flower is also known to be a natural antidepressant, while it helps treat anxiety and other stress-related disorders. Lavender oil mixed with frankincense oil along with a carrier oil such as sweet almond oil, can help lighten age spots, common with aging. Lavender also possesses powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce the irritation and inflammation associated with skin conditions such as acne, eczema burn, and even insect bites. Finally, cocoa powder rejuvenates dull skin, while safeguarding your skin from sunburn. Let’s get started!
1 ripe avocado
Juice of 1 Lemon
¼ cup of cannabis oil
2 teaspoon of natural, unsweetened cocoa powder
3-4 drops of patchouli, lavender, or other essential oil (optional)
How it’s done:
Step one: Cut open the avocado, removing its pit and spooning its flesh into a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients.
Step two: Mash the mixture into a smooth texture, trying to avoid chunks.
Step three: Rub the mixture in a circular motion on your face using fingertips.
Step four: To get the full spa treatment, boil some water and put it in a heatproof bowl. Be sure to tie your hair back. Next, put your green face over the bowl, with a towel over both you and the bowl. This will open up your pores, allowing your skin to absorb the facial’s nutrients.
Step five: Leave the facial on for 20-30 minutes. Afterward, take a warm wet washcloth and wash off the mixture in a circular motion.
