Currently this face mask is my absolute favorite for when my skin has absolutely had it and needs some serious life pumped back into it fast.
What do the ingredients do?
This little power powder is fantastic for drawing….no drawing sounds too gentle….forcefully pulling the rubbish out of your skin, improving the circulation, tones and strenghthens your skin. Some people can apply this directly to the skin but just a little warning, it will leave your skin red for the next 20-30 minutes if you just apply a green clay mixture on your skin.
You would be amazed at how much oil is in this nut and I love this one for putting the moisture back in my skin. Obviously DO NOT use this in the recipe if you are alergic to nuts.
Most people eat this without realising how increadible it is for the skin! It is anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, has mild cleansing properties and it is fantastic for acne, eczema, rosacea and rashes. You know those days where your skin is just red, inflamed and blotchy? Try an oat and honey face mask…lifesaver!
I just Salicylic acid (BHA, beta hydroxy acid) which is great for getting down into the skin and un-cloging pores and chemically removing the dead skin cells. One thing I do have to say is don’t overuse this, overuse makes your skin so sensitive.
This is one of the few oils that can be directly applied on the skin and it really is a beauty for skin care. It is antiseptic, relaxing and like oats it is fantastic for acne, eczema, rosacea and rashes.
Not enterly neccessary, water strait from the tap is FULL of bacteria which will make the mask go off faster. If you are just making one batch tap water if fine, but if you’re making some to use over the next week or two use Mineral water or it will only last a week.
Why type of skin would you recommend this for?
I use this mask for when my skin is feeling congested and irritated, like you have something sitting under your skin which is just itching to get out. Anyone with oily and normal skin can use this but if you have very dry skin I would recommend that you only use a fourth of the green clay I used. Green clay in the amounts I used I think would be too rough for something with dry to very dry skin.
