The weather this year has been wreaking havoc on our skin! El Nino, Polar Vortex...we're kind of afraid of what this summer might bring!
Never fear, we came up with some tried and true, all natural, low ingredient facial masks that will keep your face beautiful and shining...just the way nature intended it to be.
The Mint Soothie (aka Mojito): In a blender, blend a handful of mint. Add a pinch of tumeric powder and mix mix mix! Apply to a clean face and rinse with cold water. Will soothe irritated and overly sun-kissed skin.
The Milk Toner: Dip a cotton ball in organic milk and gently wipe down your face. Leave on for ten minutes and wash off. When done weekly, you should notice a natural glow (variation: soak 1/2 cup of almonds in milk overnight. Put in blender to create a paste and use as an exfoliant).
Cucumber Margarita: Ok, so this doesn't have tequila in it, but it WILL hydrate your skin, which tequila will NOT do! Peel one cucumber and mash it in a bowl. Mix 1 TBS of sugar and put in the fridge to cool. Place on skin and take 10 minutes to relax as the mask naturally hydrates your skin. Rinse with cold water.
Sandalwood and Rosewater Masque: The benefits of both sandalwood and rosewater on the skin are incredible. Use this mixture to soothe skin and to even out patchy tanned skin. Make a paste from sandalwood powder and rosewater (both widely available online). On clean skin, apply to face and leave overnight. Magic!
We hope that these homemade face masks help our readers understand the limitless benefits of the natural world around us. At BOX Intimates, every formula is as low ingredient as possible, and uses the best that nature has to offer.
Happy Home Facial-ing!
