Beauty Inside & Out: Beauty Bars Recipe

A new kind of beauty bar

We’re taking snack time to a new level. Beauty Inside & Out is a series of articles that feature recipes created with Thermomix , one of the most amazing kitchen appliances ever. These tasty treats have some of the same ingredients you’ll find in our JAFRA Royal Jelly Ritual products, like Manuka Honey and Sunflower Sprout Extract. These recipes aren’t just good for your body; they’re great for your skin, hair and overall gorgeousness!
 
Beauty Bars
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 20 bars
You’ll Need:
  • Oil (for greasing)
  • 2.5 oz. (2/3 cup) unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 2 oz. (½ cup) goji berries
  • 2.5 oz. (2/3 cup) almonds skin on
  • 2.5 oz. (2/3 cup) raisins
  • 2.5 oz. (2/3 cup) pitted dried cranberries
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana (approx. 4.5 oz.)
  • 2.5 oz. (4 tablespoons) Manuka Honey or other raw honey
  • 2.8 oz. (2/3 cup) rolled oats
  • 2 oz. (½ cup) almond meal
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
 
Directions:
For a standard food processor, pulse sunflower seeds, goji berries, almonds, raisins and cranberries a few times until coarsely chopped and beat eggs, banana and Manuka Honey until smooth for steps 2-4.
 
For Thermomix:
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and line an 8 in x 12 in baking tin with greaseproof paper and set aside.
  2. Place sunflower seeds, goji berries, almonds, raisins and cranberries in mixing bowl and chop for 3 seconds with the speed set at 7. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Place eggs, banana and Manuka Honey in mixing bowl and beat for 30 seconds with the speed set at 4.
  4. Add chopped fruit and nuts, rolled oats, almond meal and ground cinnamon and mix for 15 seconds with the speed set at 3. Transfer to the prepared baking tin and spread evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 375ºF, or until golden brown. Allow to cool for 5 minutes and cut into 20 bars. Allow to cool completely before separating and storing.
 
Added Bonus: The dried fruit in this recipe can be switched out for dried dates, figs, blueberries, apricots, whatever fruit you’re into! These bars store very well in the freezer and can be eaten without thawing.
 
The Beautiful Benefits:
Goji berries contain 11 of the 22 essential dietary trace minerals, so they pack quite the dietary punch. They help firm, tighten and plump the appearance of your skin. They also contain a high amount of vitamin C, which is also known for being helpful in firming, tightening and protecting your skin from environmental stressors. Sunflower seeds are a great source of protein and are enriched with vitamins and minerals that promote healthy hair and give it a beautiful shine. They are rich in vitamin E as well, which protects your skin from cell damage and promotes healthy skin. Sunflower seeds also contain copper, which is a must for maintaining healthy skin. Manuka honey promotes skin regeneration and soothes inflamed skin while reducing redness. It also lessens scarring and oxygenates your pores while drawing out bacteria to give you some extra help in acne-prone areas.

Beauty inspiration for 4 fun Halloween looks

Halloween is quickly approaching and that means it’s time for all things spooky and sparkly! Your makeup can really take your Halloween attire to the next level. Here are a few ideas that will help you add a little “BOO!” to your beauty on the 31st.
 
The Sultry Cat
You can make this Halloween standard all yours this year! Start with CC Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 20 and the Contour Palette to even things out and define your features. A strong cheekbone contour can help give you a cat-like structure. Use Kajal Eyeliner for intense color around your eyes and lightly line your lips in black Eye Pencil to add some feline features to your face. Add whiskers and a nose with whichever one gives you more control over your creativity and use Cream Eyeliner to keep things in place (it’s waterproof!) Create a smokey eye with the darkest shade in the Adorisse Night Eyeshadow Palette and add a pop of color with Moisture Rich Lipstick in Red Satin, or cover just your top lip in black liner and connect it to the bottom of your drawn on nose as an alternative to a red pout. Put on a few coats of Lash Stretching Mascara and remember, there’s never been a better time to grab that Felt Tip Eyeliner for a dramatic cat eye.
 
The Mystical Unicorn
This is a fun one, because it’s all about your imagination! Start by brightening your eyes and defining your features with White Soufflé Highlighter and the Contour Palette. Then, use the Girl Squad All Eyes On Us Eyeshadow Palette and the All Night Long Felt Tip Eyeliner in the bright bold shade we call Feather to feel truly magical. The Girl Squad collection has the perfect high-pigment shades to make this look happen. Blend the colors as your see fit from your eyes to your cheeks, even down your neck. Finish it off with some Powder Blush in Sunset, a few swipes of Lash Stretching Mascara and a sweet Liquid Matte lip in the shade First Kiss. Add gems and sparkles for a fantasy feel. Your hair, ears and horn could be a fun DIY project!

The Mermaid Queen
Once you even things out with the Contour Palette and brighten things up with White Soufflé Highlighter, the Girl Squad Eyeshadow Pallet is all you really need to really get this look going. Pair it with the Girl Squad All Night Long Felt Tip Eyeliner in Feather and create lighter shades of teal and purple with the lightest shade of the Powder Eyeshadow Trio in Drama. Set this look out to sea with a little Lash Stretching MascaraMoisture Rich Lipstick in Rich Cabernet, a Clear Gloss Lip Tint and an aquatic-colored wig.

Tip: Use a pair of fishnets to give an amphibious texture to the color you apply to your face.
 
The Royal Goddess
Yaaas, queen! No, seriously. Get this regal look by defining your cheekbones with the Contour Palette. Use Inkwell Eyeliner to heavily line your eyes all the way around and Cream Eyeliner to solidfy your ultra-dramatic cat eye. Add golden accents to your face in the same places you would apply a highlighter for a regal Cleopatra-inspired look. Use the Powder Eyeshadow Trio in Amazonian for your eyes and give yourself a glow with Powder Blush in Havana Spice. Lightly layer Royal Jelly Luxe Shine Lip Gloss in Regal Peach over Royal Jelly Luxury Lipstick in Gilded Bronze for a glistening lip fit for a queen.
