I love a good face mask, especially done at home.
Facials over makeup for me, any day of the week! But even when I’m wearing makeup, a good base of healthy skin makes everything work smoother, more beautiful, more vibrant.
Here are a few homemade do-it-yourself face masks. Try the one that calms what ails you!
Would you ever try these at home? Have you ever tried a recipe like this?
Chia seeds deliver a massive amount of nutrients with very few calories. They are loaded with antioxidants, high in quality protein and help control hunger while enhancing your diet.
Chia seeds are easy to get and a simple raw Chia seed pudding takes minutes to make. I use two table spoons of Chia seeds for this recipe. Here’s some nutritional information:
The soaked Chia seed is jellylike. This outer layer of the seed swells when mixed with liquids to form a gel. This can be used in place of eggs to lower cholesterol and increase the nutrient content of food. In baked goods you can substitute Chia seeds for eggs. One egg is the equivalent of mixing 1 tablespoon of Chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water and letting sit for 15 minutes.
Here is how I make my chia seed cinnamon pudding ..
2 tablespoons Chia seeds
2 tablespoons milk of your choice
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon coconut sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash Of salt
Mix ingredients in container. Stir well. Refrigerate for half an hour. Stir again. Enjoy.
It’s that simple!
Now you put in the fridge for at least 30 min. The Chia seeds will soak up the liquid and the jelly layer will form.
After the pudding forms you can add raisins, coconut, banana, berries, nut butter, toasted almonds, or any other treat to make your chia seed pudding taste the way you like. I added raisins.
And there you have it! Make your Chia seed pudding base with vanilla, cinnamon, coconut sugar and the milk of your choice. Whenever I put sugar in something I usually add a pinch of salt to balance out the flavors.
