when was the last time you treated yourself to a facial mask???
April 14, 2012
I'm completely obsessed with making all my own skin and body care products since I have always had sensitivities to the yucky synthetic products that are on the market today. Have you ever read the ingredients in some of your facial cleansers or body creams? Very scary. Our skin in the most permeable and important organ of our body so it is important that we are conscious of what we put on it. Here are a couple incredibly easy facial and hair masks that are completely natural and very effective, plus you can easily find these ingredients at your grocery store. Honey Mask This mask Will leave your skin with a rosy glow resulting from increased circulation. recommended for all skins types, especially dry, dehydrated, or mature skin 2-3 tsp. fresh raw honey Tips... Be sure to pull your hair back prior to application since honey gets runnier once it warms to skin temperature. Using your fingers, apply a very thin coat of honey to your face and neck. Lie down and relax as you leave the mask on for 15 minutes or longer. Rinse with a very warm damp cloth. Avocado Hair Mask Hair masks add nourishment and deep conditioning to hair helping to repair damaged hair, add manageability, promote smooth and shiny hair. There are so many nourishing ingredients in our kitchen, especially fruits that are over ripe and we end up throwing them away. 1 ripe avocado ¼ tsp. coconut oil In a bowl, mash the avocado until smooth. Add the oil to the avocado and mix well. How to use a Fresh Hair Mask
Brush or Comb your dry hair.
Place a towel around your shoulders or do the fresh mask while taking a bath.
Moisten the hair with water.
Grab a handful of fresh mask and apply it to a handful of hair, starting with the middle of the hair to the ends of hair. Next, apply the fresh mask to the top and remaining hair. Don’t comb the mask through the hair.
Massage the fresh mask into your scalp.
Leave fresh mask on the hair for 10-20 minutes, the longer the better.
Rinse the fresh mask very well
Shampoo and Condition your hair as usual. (at the moment I use Aveda shampoo and conditioner since I havent quite mastered shampoo making.)
