Consuming flaxseeds on a regular basis will be very healthy for your skin. But have you ever considered applying flaxseed externally to your skin by making a facial mask using flaxseed?
Many commercially produced facial masks include flaxseed or flaxseed oil as a key ingredient. A flax facial is believed to increase circulation and leave the skin feeling soft and smooth. But it's not necessary to spend $99 dollars to give yourself a first class beauty facial.
Here is a good recipe for a flaxseed facial mask at RoastedFlax.com. (It's not necessary to use roasted flax for this, ordinary ground flaxseed will do just as well). The ingredients for the home-made mask are flaxseed, honey, wheat bran and hot water. Give it a try!
