Apricot Mask Recipe

I chose to use apricots in this month’s bien-etre spa facial special for two reasons. One: these sweet little fruits are in season right now. Two: they are wonderful for softening the skin!

Apricots are naturally high in Vitamin A, a fat-soluble antioxidant and known skin strengthener and softener. The sugars in apricots further help to soften skin, making them a wonderful ingredient to add into homemade masks.

Here’s my favorite:

Softening Apricot, Milk and Honey Mask

½ cup dried organic apricots (un-sulfered if you can find them)
¼ cup water, to re-constitute
1 tbsp organic heavy cream
1 tbsp raw organic honey

place apricots and water (a little at a time) into blender or food processor and blend away
add in cream and honey, blend until smooth

apply to damp, clean skin
leave on for at least 15-20 minutes
rinse thoroughly
follow with appropriate moisturizer or treatment serum
