The weather today is overwhelming, I decided that instead of going to the beach and melt slowly, a walk in the park with a good book will be a better option. So after this article you know where I’m heading. (#thedailyoutfit session, exactly) But let’s forget about that for a second, shall we?
When it comes to face masks, at least commercial ones, I never know what to buy and not because there are so many options but because I’m scared about the ingredients. Because of this I decided a while ago to make my own face masks, and God how easy it is. But instead of listing out all my fails and successes, I will go ahead and tell you about the best one so far.
Praised by celebs and influencers, the clay mask does what others only promise and it gets you really addicted with the results. I haven’t tried out one already made because I prefer to do it by myself, this way I know exactly what’s in it.
There are multiple variations of the clay but this is the only one I’ve tried so far. It purifies the skin, cleans the pores and sebum excess and it is good as well for hair and teeth but I haven’t tried this part yet. Goodbye blackheads! Yes, that’s right! Somehow it manages to push out all the impurities, leaving you with a smooth and glowing face, restoring skin elasticity. What to take in consideration is that you need to hydrate your face after each application, which should be no more than two times a week, to avoid dry skin.
Here’s a guide to know exactly what type of clay mask you need:
Why is Clay Beneficial?
- Detoxifies the skin
- Reduces acne
- Reduces wrinkles
- Exfoliates the skin
- Removes blackheads
& it contains:
My Homemade Clay mask
- 2 spoons of white clay
- 1 spoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon honey
- half a lemon juice
- 2 drops Vitamin
Apply it thorough your face and leave it 10 to 20 minutes. Always avoid to apply under the eye area (not necessarily with this mask but in general) because the skin there is very sensitive. After rising, massage your skin with a natural oil or a hydrating cream.
