What?  What is that I see?  A carrot facial for your delicate face!

And you made it with your own two hands.

Slather the carrot facial all over your face {and neck/chest if you feel like it} and leave on for about 20 minutes.  Wash off with warm water.

Here’s why you should do this facial today: you’re putting Vitamin E straight on your face, carrots are loaded with vitamin A and C, potassium, and antioxidants, and honey has antibacterial properties.

Say what?

It’s good for your skin.  Go make some.

*I used my Blendtec with the new smaller jars; the ones for making baby food, butters etc.  It’s the same blender + jar combo I used for the make your own citrus scrub recipe.
