I try to limit chemicals in my skin care rituals, the primary reason being that my skin is so much less sensitive to natural ingredients. I rarely use a store bought face wash, choosing Ayurveda instead and they work wonders on my face!
I was taught this simple, yet very effective mask by my mother-in-law; an avid Ayurveda follower ( who is by the way 58 and looking at least ten years younger)! I often have this quick facial in the morning, as it makes my skin glow during the whole day.
2 tsp tahini
3 drops of lemon essential oil
You mix these simple ingredients, apply a layer on your face before jumping in the shower ( (try not to eat your mask), then let the steam go to work.
I promise your skin will be left silky smooth thanks to the tahini, glowing and radiant from for the lemon essential oil!
What Is So Special About Tahini?
True tahini has just one ingredient: sesame seeds. They’re nutritional powerhouses and to reap their full benefits you can use their tasty nut butter form in the kitchen or as part of your daily beauty.
Sesame seeds are loaded with vitamins B1, B2, B5, and B1 – all essential to increasing your metabolism and regulating nervous system function.
Tahini is also high in vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant that’s been found to slow the effects of aging.
How To Use Tahini In Your Kitchen?
Even if you’ve never had tahini on its own, you’re probably familiar with its taste—it’s the key ingredient in hummus. Alone, it has a creamy and nutty flavor that works well in savory dishes. I love a spoonful of it in my morning oatmeal. It can even be spread over toast and drizzled with a little maple syrup for a simple breakfast.
