Summer heat in Texas is here to stay for the next several months. When the temps go up, our skin starts craving a little extra attention especially after any outdoor activities in the sun.

A favorite way to nourish our bodies during the summer heat is to add more fresh fruit into our diet. Melons, mangos, and berries are a wonderful way to keep our bodies hydrated while outdoors in the sun, but they also add in a healthy dose of vitamins and antioxidants for glowing skin.

But what about food on our face, like a fresh fruit mask? I LOVE fresh fruit masks for so many reasons, but the recipe I am sharing today is a nourishing after-sun treat that is my favorite way to mask this summer – Enjoy!





Cantaloupe & Honey Hydrating Fruit Mask

 This face mask is perfect to make and use after a day spent in the sun!

    • the scent is deliciously intoxicating

    • nourishes and hydrates post-sun skin

    • calms and soothes dry, parched skin

    I chose cantaloupe for its hydrating benefits and scent, but any melon will work!

    • a handful of cantaloupe chunks

    • a handful quick-cooking oats

    • a big spoon of honey 

    • puree all ingredients in a food processor until very smooth. This step is important as a chunky mixture will fall off your face. :)

    • apply a thin layer to your face (about a tablespoon) and leave on up to 10 minutes or more if you can stand it! 

    • best enjoyed while resting on your back and letting the mask work its magic

    • rinse off with warm water, blot dry and follow up with your favorite oil or cream to seal in the moisture

    • use the leftover mask mixture in a smoothie or use to make overnight oats :)

    • Note: This mask should not be made in large quantities as it will spoil even when refrigerated after a couple of days. Make it fresh and use it up!

    Enjoy and let me know how it goes!
