The Facial Mask I Use Every Night for Dry Skin
Our obsession with beauty may be exposing our skin to millions of chemicals that are in nearly every product we use. These harsh chemicals may even be having a contradictory effect—dry, patchy skin. I try to use as many natural, organic beauty products as possible, but these chemicals are so prevalent it’s almost unavoidable. To be on the safe side—and to protect my skin—I use an all-natural strawberry facial mask every night to help replenish and hydrate my skin. The simple ingredients in it will leave your skin fresh and glowing!
Moisturizing Strawberry Mask
Most of the ingredients for this mask you probably already have in your kitchen:
- A handful of fresh strawberries
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Few drops of lavender essential oil
Wash the strawberries thoroughly. Strawberries are one of the most chemically treated fruits; you definitely want to remove any toxins or residue before putting them on your skin! Cut off the stems and leaves and mash the strawberries well. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well until you have a smooth paste. Apply evenly to your face, making sure to avoid your eyes. Sit back and relax for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn on some soothing music or read a book while you relax. When you are done, remove gently with warm water and a clean rag.
How it works
The strawberries are rich in vitamin C and alpha hydroxyl acids, which serve as exfoliating agents for your skin. The honey is a natural moisturizer and is easily absorbed by your skin to increase moisture retention. Olive oil is also moisturizing, and its high levels of anti-oxidants can help restore the healthy glow to your skin. Lavender is a calming, relaxing scent that not only relaxes you mentally and emotionally but soothes the muscles in your face, as well.
Your facial skin is sensitive and highly responsive to external factors. Take care to treat it gently and protect it from harsh toxins and chemicals. This strawberry mask is my favorite, but there are a plethora of other recipes online, many of which use natural ingredients you have right at home. You don’t have to spend a fortune or absorb innumerable toxins to have beautiful, glowing, moisturized skin!
