‘Self-care means giv­ing your­self per­mis­sion to pause’

Self-care is es­sen­tial for our men­tal health. Tak­ing 10 min­utes out of your day to treat your­self – whether it be run­ning a hot bath, go­ing for a walk or putting on a face mask (hello, glow­ing skin!) can be just what the doc­tor or­dered to help un­wind from our busy lives. We’re lov­ing this easy DIY face mask recipe, it’s per­fect for your #Self­care­sun­day.

» Honey and avo­cado mask

Ac­cord­ing to celebrity fa­cial­ist Joanna Var­gas, honey is hy­drat­ing so it’s great for dry skin, with­out the risk of break­outs. Avo­cado is full of omega 3 fatty acids and B vi­ta­mins, which are won­der­ful for your lym­phatic sys­tem and restor­ing the skin’s lipid layer. The mashed mango helps brighten skin as it’s packed with vitamin C, while olive oil soft­ens your skin and its anti-in­flam­ma­tory prop­er­ties help re­verse the signs of sun dam­age.

2 tbsp honey 2 tbsp avo­cado 2 tbsp olive oil 1 mashed mango

Mix all the in­gre­di­ents to­gether. Leave on for 15 min­utes and re­move with a warm face cloth.
