There are obviously thousands of commercial masks out there, but unless you buy an organic brand which tends to be expensive, you are putting a ton of chemicals and toxins on your skin, which in turn are absorbed by your body. Ever heard of endocrine disrupters? Well, endocrine disruptors are chemicals that may interfere with the body’s endocrine system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects in humans. So, in conclusion, we should avoid them at all cost, meaning avoiding non organic beauty products as well.
There are however easier cheaper and better alternatives. With a few ingredients which you should have in your home, you can make yourself an amazing mask. It is very easy to prepare, and it will leave your skin looking healthy and naturally glowing. Recommended for greasy and mixed skin types.
What you will need:
- 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
- 2 teaspoons honey.
- 1 teaspoon baking soda.
What to do:
- Clean your face thoroughly. Remove all makeup.
- Mix all ingredients well.
- Apply evenly on your face avoiding the eye area.
- Leave 5 to 10 minutes.
- Rinse with warm water and then cold water to close off your pores.
- Moisturize your skin with your usual face cream.
Your face will feel very soft and will glow naturally afterwards. However, this mask is not recommended if your skin is very dry, as the baking soda will dry your skin.
