Zero Waste Face Mask

October 11, 2017

 

There is nothing like making your own beauty products.  You know what is going into them and there is no waste of plastic.

 

I only use ingredients that I can eat.  This face mask is highly nourishing and will calm down any redness and inflammation in the skin, leaving it soft, smooth and radiant.

 

Recipe:

4 tbsp Coconut Milk Fat

1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder

1 tsp Raw Honey

 

All these ingredients are organic and I use honey from our local beekeeper.

 

Mix all the ingredients together and place in a glass jar and pop into the fridge.  This mask should last for months in the fridge but you will probably have used it all up before then.

 

You only need a small amount on your face. Leave on for 20- 30 minutes and then wash off with warm water and a face cloth. Your skin will be left smooth and silky and any redness will have disappeared.

 Coconut Milk contains natural fatty acids which moisturise any skin and is also beneficial for dry sensitive skin.

It has anti bacterial properties and won't cause you any pimples.

The high levels of Vit C means your skin will maintain its' flexibility and stay supple.

The addition of copper is a great anti ageing component that will keep your skin from sagging and help it to stay looking youthful.

 Turmeric is anti inflammatory and antioxidant. Both of these qualities are highly beneficial for keeping your skin looking young and radiant.

 Honey is a skin superfood.  It is also anti inflammatory. It has anti bacterial properties which means it is great for acne prone skin and it helps to keep pimples at bay. Honey works to calm down any redness in the skin.
