The Anti-inflammitory Face Mask

The Anti-inflammitory Face Mask

Are the products that you put on your skin and body as clean as the food on your plate?

Do you want something that actually makes your skin feel young, clean, and tight like a spa treatment?

Do you love your natural lifestyle?

YES!!! No toxins, no parabens, no harmful chemicals please. However, I could not find anything all natural that really worked as well as the spa treatments until now. This recipe has made me a believer that you can have amazing results and be all- natural. It also parallels my “clean” non-toxic lifestyle.

I introduced this mask last week in Bali and WOW – the results were increased circulation immediately and tighter and clear skin. Also, it reduced inflammation in my face and eyes and the evened out my skin tone. AMAZING.

In blogs 1 -2 about natural beauty , there are tips for exfoliation, natural scrubs, nourishing coconut oil with essential oils, and natural face products. This mask is the icing on the cake and here are some reasons why!

RECIPE:
1 Tbsp. Bentonite Clay

1 Tsp. Turmeric

1 Tbsp. Aloe Vera

Apple Cider Vinegar

2 Drops Lavender Essential Oil

1 Drop Geranium (for dry skin)

Mix all dry ingredients – then add Apple Cinder Vinegar to mask consistency and essential oils.

Put a layer on face until dry. Remove with a wet washcloth.

TIPS: Turmeric may stain so take care not to get on clothes. Try the mixture on hand first to ensure you are not sensitive to the ingredients. It felt warm when I washed it off, but that was just all the blood and increased circulation to my face. The redness left in the matter of 15 minutes to leave a clear complexion.
