Vegan-friendly homemade face masks
After a long and stressful week at work all we want to do is relax. And what is more calming and refreshing than a mini SPA at you own home. Remember - self care is not selfish! So make a cup of your favorite tea (I love lavender and chamomile tea), put your favorite music on, for example, calming piano music, light up some candles, and put on vegan-friendly, natural, homemade face mask. Trust me, after awhile you will feel like a brand new person!
Here are 4 of my favorite vegan face mask recipes:
Avocado + Cucumber
Most likely, you already have these two green ingredients in your fridge so no need to spend extra cash on some fancy face masks. Simply combine half avocado with 1/4 of blended cucumber and your mask is ready! Apply it to your face and keep it on for about 15-20 minutes. Wash it off with a cold water.
Avocados regulate oil production, helps to reduce inflammation and fine lines! Cucumber mainly contains water which will hydrate your skin and vitamin C that will help to reduce breakouts. "Avocumber" mask will leave your skin feeling clean and fresh.
Almonds + Olive Oil
We, more or less, already know all the health benefits we can get from almonds and olive oil but have you ever tried this powerful duo to improve your skin condition? If not, here is what you will need -
2 tablespoons of olive oil and a handful of ground almonds. Mix it up and apply it to your skin. Leave it pn for 10 minutes and right before rinsing it off, gently massage the mask into your skin to remove all the dead cells.
Fatty acid content from the almonds penetrate the skin leaving it elastic and soft. Vitamin E from the olive oil acts like a shield against free radicals and helps to prevent dehydrated and dull skin.
Yes, banana alone can work miracles on your skin! And it is, probably, one of the easiest masks to make! You only have to smash a banana into a smooth paste and gently apply it to your face and neck. Keep it on for 10 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off with a cool water.
Bananas contain lots of vitamins that are great for your skin: vitamin B reduces dryness, vitamin A smoothes out rough skin and helps to get rid of blemishes, dark spots, vitamin E reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Flaxseeds + Water
1 tablespoon of grounded flaxseeds and 3 spoons of water. Simply mix it up, leave it for about 15 minutes until the consistency of the mixture turns gooey and then apply it to your face. Keep the mask on for about 5 minutes (until it gets dry) and then wash it off with a cold water.
Flaxseeds not only shrink large pores, deep cleanses and purifies your skin leaving it firm but also has anti-aging properties that help to prevent fine lines and wrinkles!
- Before using any of these masks make sure to do a patch test to prevent allergic reactions or other negative side effects on your face.
- Use only fresh and organic ingredients for the best results.
- Do not keep these masks for longer than suggested.
Enjoy radiant, smooth, hydrated skin while saving Planet Earth!
