Jennifer Laz & The Wonderful Carrot Coconut Facial

I'd like you all to meet my esthetician, Jennifer Laz. She is so smart and creative and looks at everything from a very holistic standpoint, which I love.

My latest treatment was what Jennifer called the Carrot Coconut Facial because it included her special Carrot, Coconut Vitamin mask. When I go visit Jennifer it's always interesting because we talk health, beauty products, buildup, chemicals, inner health, and so on. Jenn is such a wealth of wonderful information. 

Of course when I asked her who makes this particular "organic natural" mask, she replied "I did!". So without hesitation I MADE her send the recipe and share it with PUREmamas readers. Ha. Thanks Jenn, you are the sweetest. 

In fact, if you mention PUREmamas, you'll receive a 10% discount on your next treatment. Book an appointment today. And for more of her great recipes and info, follow her on facebook

Fun fact: raw ingredients {not heated or altered the way most store bought products are} are great on the skin because of the active enzymes. Enzymes are great not only internally but externally as well {I learned this from Jenn}.  

 

Coconut Carrot Vitamin Mask

Carrots are a great source of beta carotene, a natural antioxidant, which both strengthens and protects
the skin. Raw organic honey contains B Complex and natural enzymes to soften and brighten. Coconut
helps moisturize dehydrated skin and is a wonderful source of natural minerals. The Carrot Coconut
Vitamin Mask leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and completely nourished. This mask is especially
beneficial for dry skin.
