Mix Up Your Morning Face Care Routine With This Incredible, Edible Orange Mud Mask

This looks good enough to eat. Oh, wait — it is.



It's time to put down the beautyblender and pick up an actual blender. This edible orange mud mask is incredible — and not just because those words happen to rhyme. Each of this all-natural recipe's ingredients packs a powerful punch. 

Unsweetened plain Greek yogurt is brimming with probiotics that promote good bacteria, which then have an anti-inflammatory impact on the skin, especially if it's acne-prone. Cocoa powder is full of antioxidants, nutrients key in helping repair skin cells and neutralize harmful free radicals, according to dermatologists. Bananas also pulls the double duty of hydrating skin while eliminating excess oil, thanks to its high levels of potassium, and vitamins E and C. With its antibacterial and antifungal properties, honey battles breakouts, as well as reduces the appearance of redness, irritation, scars, and acne marks. Due to its lactic acid content, buttermilk is a natural exfoliant that will get rid of dead skin cells for smoother skin. Both the juice and peel of an orange contain citric acid and calcium that also eliminate dead skin cells, as well as promote new skin cell growth. These ingredients also reduce the look of age spots, acne scars, and small wrinkles while evening out tone and texture. Lemon juice, also high in vitamin C and citric acid, can help brighten skin, neutralize free radicals, and boost collagen production. 

Whip all that up in a blender, then wipe it all over your face. This edible mud mask doesn't just do a whole lot of good, it also looks so good you can taste it. Heck, you can even double the recipe and chow down while you're clearing up.
