Updated: May 24, 2019




Face masks extract the dirt from deep within the skin. They prevent and eliminate blackheads and provide the skin with minerals and vitamins to heal heal and maintain the skin.


Homemade facial masks can be used around 1-2 times per week. When it comes to more gentle versions of face masks they can be used almost daily however when it comes to such ingredients like Clay they should be used in moderation.



The main difference between face masks and packs is that the pack is more gentle on the skin and therefor can be used more frequently.






CLAY MASKS


When it comes to different skin types different proportion of each ingredient should be used. In addition ingredients for that particular skin type can be added to enhance the benefits of the mask for the individual.


NORMAL SKIN = 6 part Clay / 2 part Aloe Vera / 1 part Honey


OILY SKIN = 6 part Clay / 1 part Aloe Vera / 2 part Honey / 1/2 Lemon juice


MATURE SKIN = 6 part Clay / 1 part Aloe Vera / 2 part Honey / 1 part Rose water / 1 part Vitamin E


BLEMISHED SKIN = 6 part Clay / 2 part Jojoba Oil / 1 Part Probiotic Powder





DIRECTIONS : Combine all the ingredients and apply to face / body. Leave for around 15 minutes and remove fully with warm water.


The masks can usually be stored in a glass air tight container in the fridge for a number of days but no longer than one week.







FACE PACK


As stated previously the face packs are much softer on the face and can be used multiple times per week if not daily (If you have the time to prepare, apply, sit & relax daily) Face packs help the skin to cleanse and tighten prevention premature ageing and protecting the skin against the elements.
