Face masks are a staple for self care days or girls nights and are a lot of fun, I personally encourage everyone to do a mask once or twice a week. There are many great store-bought masks to choose from but sometimes they can be very expensive and some may contain irritating ingredients like colorants or fragrances which are a no-no when you have sensitive skin. Today I’m going to share with you my favourite DIY face mask recipe that is great for acne, sensitivity, dryness and premature ageing. It is great if your are just starting out on your skin care journey, enjoy a good DIY or just like your products to be ultra natural and ultra simple.
- One teaspoon raw honey.
- Half a teaspoon powdered spirulina.
- Small Bowl
- Spoon for mixing.
Put the teaspoon honey and the half teaspoon spirulina powder together in a bowl, add a few drops of water to aid in the mixing process and mix until you create a smooth paste. Remove makeup and gently cleanse face. Apply mask over wet or damp face to increase spreadability, avoiding the eye area, try not be startled because you look like swamp thing. Rinse mask off after 15 to 20 minutes. Enjoy your radiant and glowing skin.
Just a word of caution this mask is best done in the bath or shower because it can be messy and stain your clothes, but in my opinion the price and the benefits do make it worth the schlep.
Some of the benefits of honey include: helping to heal pimples due to it’s anti-bacterial properties, moisturising skin due to it’s humectant properties and it is a great anti inflammatory agent. Some of the benefits of Spirulina include: helping to delay premature ageing due to the potent vitamins and antioxidants it contains.
I hope this post was helpful and the mask works for you. Let me know in the comment section down below what your favourite DIY face mask is.
Have a beautiful day.
