Increase Blood Flow and Circulation: Cayenne Pepper Mask

We’re calling this the “Hot Cocoa” mask thanks to its combination of cayenne pepper and cocoa powder in its ingredients. Sounds good enough to eat! This recipe is rich in vitamins A, E, and antioxidants, and the cayenne pepper actually helps to fortify the existing nutrients in the cocoa powder, making it easier for the skin to absorb.

What You’ll Need:
½ ripped avocado
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of raw cocoa powder

Directions: Mix raw cocoa powder and cayenne pepper, then blend avocado into mix until the texture is smooth.

Brighten Complexion: Paprika-Infused Mask

We love that all the ingredients necessary for this mask are seriously so accessible.

What You’ll Need:
1 tablespoon of jojoba oil
½ tablespoon of almond meal
1 teaspoon of paprika

Directions: Mix paprika and almond meal in a bowl. Slowly pour jojoba oil into the mixture, blending until all ingredients are evenly combined.
