Soothing Lettuce face mask recipe

Yes, I'm encouraging you to wear your salad too. Lettuce contains vitamins A, C, and K which benefit your skin when used topically. Lettuce revitalizes, soothes, balances oil, and may actually protect skin from premature aging.

A lettuce face mask restores skin’s natural pH, smooths rough skin, and can help heal pimples. Any lettuce will do, but it’s a bit more thrilling using lettuce you’ve picked from your own garden :)

It’s quick and easy –> Put a handful of lettuce in a blender and gently pulp, then massage onto clean skin. Leave on for 5-10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water.

For a fancier version, add a little olive oil and lemon juice. Olive oil is a great moisturizer, and lemon juice a gentle astringent that cleans and refines pores.
