We are out of our homes all day and while we are going about our day, pollution particles settle down nicely on our skin, sometimes clogging our pores and thus causing, irksome breakouts.
So if you are home this weekend and want some relaxation time, appease your skin with this wonderful DIY mask that lets your pores breathe.
Here are the ingredients you need and their benefits:
Bentonite clay: The first thing you need is bentonite clay. Because of it being so powerful with its properties, all you need is to use this once a month to reap full benefits. It will unclog your pores and thus let you feel refreshed and lighter. It draws out all the toxins and lets your skin breathe. Your skin is left feeling soft and supple. No matter what type of skin you have, you can use this clay without a hassle. To stay away from chemical reactions, use a non-metallic bowl and spoon to mix this clay. Take two tablespoons of clay in a bowl to get started. Apply all over your face and neck for a full cleaning session.
Organic turmeric powder: Take two teaspoons of organic powder to get rid of acne. Since it is an antiseptic, it fights bacteria to give you flawless skin. It reverses sun damage, and just how our mothers used to swear by it for healing cuts and wounds, we still do.
Coconut Oil: Whether it’s for your skin or hair, coconut oil is a saviour. Always go for virgin coconut oil so that you get the benefits of purity. From giving full moisturization and hydration to preventing premature ageing, coconut oil does wonders to your skin. It removes dry skin and so the areas of your body that need special care, you can use coconut oil for the same. It also deep cleanses your makeup so that you can go to sleep without any traces of makeup. Add one or two tablespoons of coconut oil to the mixture.
Witch Hazel: It can be used as a toner and is effective against all kinds of skin irritations. It fights acne and then gives moisture to your skin. You can again use this for any kind of skin without batting your eyelids. It acts against raging by reducing wrinkles and shrinks the size of your pores. You can put 3 tablespoons of this into your mask.
Now, use a spatula to mix all the ingredients. Use a face pack brush to apply all over abundantly. Pat it all in and take a relaxing nap while the mask works its miracle on your skin. After 15 minutes, wash your face with water.
Notice the difference as your skin feels rejuvenated and definitely brighter. If your face has left yellow traces from the turmeric, then use witch hazel and wipe your face to remove the yellowness.
