We make our masks in powder form. We do this because this allows you to mix them with whatever base you like. And without the liquid in the formula, the mask will last longer. Plus, you are not paying for water in the formula!
So how do you blend you custom face mask? Mix a teaspoonful of powder with a liquid of choice to make a paste, then spread evenly all over clean skin. Leave for 15 minutes or longer. Wash with warm water and pat dry. Then moisturizer if you like.
Something as a simple as water is all you need to use our masks. If you want to experiment with other bases here are a few suggestions:
Studies (linked below) have shown that yogurt masks can add moisture to the skin, potentially brighten the skin, and even the skin tone.
Be sure to choose plain yogurt. Greek yogurt can be thicker which helps when applying to the face. If you prefer you can also try plant-base yogurts.
Honey is moisturizing, it can soothe irritated skin, and it can help heal acne as it is naturally anti-bacterial.
We recommend using a local honey. If you have acne, Manuka honey may also be a nice option because of the potent anti-bacterial properties.
To add tea to your face mask brew your tea of choice and then let it cool before use. Both green tea and white tea have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Aloe is a great addition for dry, irritated or sun burned skin.
