Make your own very easy flax seed face mask
Christmas means a lot of things to a lot of different people, but for the average working woman, it most definitely means two things: looking as good as possible and spending a lot of money.
Looking good is a must around Christmas - with work parties to attend, family to impress and friends to wow.
To cut the spending part down to a minimum, why not make your own flax seed face mask?
Your face will be just as glowing for the Christmas party, without the expensive price tag.
What you’ll need
1 glass of water
1 teaspoon flax seed
Pot and Stove
Oil of your choice
1. Add the flax seeds and water to a pan and boil over a low heat until they make a thick pulp mixture.
Flax seeds are known for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, owing to the fact that they are rich in alpha linoleic acid.
According to dermatologist Jeffrey Benabio, the fatty oils found in flax seed hydrates dry skin, leaving it supple, soft and youthful.
One of the fatty oils found in flax seed is omega-3, which is particularly beneficial for people with blemished and inflamed skin.
Louise Thomas-Minns, founder of uandyourskin, says omega-3 is "vital for defending the skin and for reducing inflammatory skin issues such as ageing, psoriasis, eczema and rosacea".
2. Cool until the mixture reaches room temperature.
3. Add the oil of your choice.
"Oils have been used for centuries by Ayurvedic practitioners to treat dry skin conditions. They are easily absorbed by the skin and contain a good source of vitamins and are known to accelerate healing," explains expert Renée Mann, from the Ayurvedic Practitioners Association.
She recommends almond oil as an anti-wrinkle treatment.
"Oils are a better alternative than mainstream skincare products as they are natural and are a much cheaper offering," she says.

- Carrot Oil for Face Thank you for your message. Cold pressed carrot oil protects and preserves the nutrients of the carrots. Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face. Frying grated carrots which involves heat and oil will remove some of those nutrients. Hope this helps.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
