Healtheries Ground Chia And Coconut Oil On The Face , Yes, Food On The Face!

As I have been searching around the internet for ideas with Chia in its various forms I have noticed a few recipes for face masks. At the moment my skin is really dry and no amount of water drinking is helping and I find it hard to find any products that help with being allergic or having a phobia about spending huge amounts of money on a face cream. I figured I have nothing to lose trying using ground chia, or rather, the worst thing that could happen would be spots.

As I searched the web I found there were a few blogs that were rather interesting on the subject of chia and its use in beauty regime. One particular blog gives all sorts of information on chia in general, have a good read of Beautymunsta and you will see what I mean. What a versatile thing chia is!

When I set out I wanted to make a mask, I ended up with something more like an exfoliant and that is how I used it. As you can see from my beautiful photograph it was rather on the runny side. It made a damn good exfoliant and I used in on my face, hands and feet. I would certainly make this up again and use it in this manner. My skin feels cleansed (in a gentle way) and soft.

I can’t believe I am putting this photo on-
