What ingredients for the decongestant face mask?
When our face looks grey, we tend to want to hide the marks of fatigue with all the cosmetics that pass us by. What if you were told that the solution to give your face a shine is often before our eyes? We’ve designed an easy-to-make homemade decongestant mask recipe just for you. Like the adage “Less is more”, this mask promotes simplicity and consists solely of natural ingredients.
- 2 tablespoons white clay powder
- 1/2 cucumber, peeled and mixed
- 2 tablespoons honey
Bring a glass or earth bowl in which you will place all the ingredients. Mix with a wooden spoon (avoid steel or plastic that alters the properties of the clay) until the dough is smooth and homogeneous. The latter should be creamy and thick enough to spread with your fingers. You can replace powdered clay with ready-to-use white clay. In this case, there is no need to add mineral or floral water to the preparation.
Apply the dough to your entire face, avoiding the eye area and let it sit for 10 minutes before rinsing with clear water. The small one: to reduce puffiness and dark circles, also place a slice of cucumber on your eyes for the time of the mask. Effect 2 in 1 guaranteed!
What effects on the face?
Rich in minerals and trace elements, white clay is one of the natural “favourite” ingredients of facials. It is soft and delicate, making it perfect for absolutely all skin types, including dull skin, which it will sublimate and illuminate.
Cucumber is known for its refreshing and decongestant virtues. Made up of 95% water, it will moisturize the skin deeply and restore radiance to dull complexions.
Honey is a summary of benefits for your skin. In addition, it is known in particular for its purifying and moisturizing action, which makes it particularly suitable for skin in need of vitality.
Thanks to its clean and natural composition, you can make this mask once a week or as soon as the need is felt (traits pulled, fatigue …).
