What ingredients to make this purifying mask?
As you know, we attach great importance to having your skin (this also applies to your hair and body!) to be nourished with ingredients that wish you well. That’s why this recipe consists of natural ingredients that are easy to find. It only takes a few minutes to prepare this mask and you will need only a few materials: an earth or glass bowl, a wooden spatula and you’re done.
- 2 tablespoons green clay
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon liquid honey Mineral water
Mix all the ingredients in the bowl until the dough is smooth, homogeneous and liquid enough to be applied to your face with your fingers. If you don’t havepowdered green clay,you can replace it with ready-to-use clay. In this case, the proportion of mineral water added to the different ingredients will have to be reduced.
Once the preparation is complete, spread a thin layer of dough over your entire face, except around the eyes, and let the mask work for 10 to 15 minutes. Be careful not to let the mask dry,at the risk that the clay will lose some of its benefits. To do this, bring a mist or a wet sponge that you can keep handy.
Finally, when the time is up, rinse your skin thoroughly with clear water and admire the result!
