What are the anti aging amino acids, and how to obtain them through homemade facial mask?
We hear all the time about amino acids organic skincare moisturizers and serums, but can we make a homemade mask with the same ingredients?
Amino acids are particles, which exist in many food sources.
The ones that we can use in the homemade mask recipe are included in the seaweed (the edible kind), the egg yolk and in yogurt.
The anti aging amino acid masks benefit both the dermis and the skin epidermis, nourishing it from within and give it more elasticity. The main benefit of amino acids is collagen maintenance, which becomes more stiff and weak, as we age.
Before using any facial mask, remember to test the ingredients first on a hidden patch of your skin, to see if you don’t have any itching or irritation.
