Welcome to the Homemade Facial Mask World!

Recently there is a really huge trend towards homemade facial mask recipes.

But using fruits, vegetables and even a sea weed as a mask - how does it make any sense?

Fact number 1: Many skin care products include extracts from fruits, herbs and essential oils that you can prepare yourself at home.

Fact number 2: Vitamins, minerals, anti aging amino acids and other nutrients can be already in your kitchen. So before shopping for expensive products – why not use first the things you already have?

Fact number 3: In many cases, the homemade moisturizers are more effective than the ones you buy in store. For example, many tried a seaweed mask and found out that it is effective than any other serum they tried...

Example for a homemade facial mask ingredient

As you already know, serums with algae extract can cost 100$ a bottle, but did you know that a self-made seaweed mask can give you the same effect?

The edible algae (the seaweeds) contain anti aging vitamin A and amino acids in huge amounts, which make it the most effective mask for anti aging treatment! It actually the best food for skin available.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • The skin type is the king: Mask recipes with lemon and green apple are good for oily or combined skin, while avocado recipes are better for dry skin types, because essential oils in avocado maintain skin's moisture and elasticity.

  • Test it before you go: Before going all the way with a facial mask, you should test the recipe on a hidden place of your skin, to recognize any allergies you might have. You should use that tip with commercial skin care products, too, to guarantee a rash-free skin.

  • Eat more veggies to be pretty: The bad news are that no matter how much you spend on beauty products, if you don't eat your veggies your skin will get sad: Both oily and dry skin are caused because of vitamin defficiency. Plus, our system absorbs better the nutrients when they are consumed in food - not in vitamin bottles. 

Enough with the preface - lets get started:

So get into a bubble bath and enjoy the homemade facial mask world!
