Why Choose a Natural Recipe for Facial Masks

DIY Facial Masks


Does This Scenario Sound Familiar?

If you’ve never scrutinized the label of store-bought synthetic facial masks and other skin care creams, you probably don’t realize that some of the creams, moisturizers, synthetic facial masks recipes and toners that are part of your daily skin care rituals may actually do more harm than good.Manufactured Cosmetics

It can be overwhelming to come across difficult-to-pronounce ingredients like propylene glycol or diazolidinyl urea. The first is known to cause allergic reactions; the second releases formaldehyde—yes, the same chemical that slows down decomposition in dead people. You’ll probably come across parabens, which lengthen the shelf life of most cosmetics, and FD & C Yellow and Blue, coloring that’s linked to asthma, headaches, nausea, and fatigue.

Didn’t think they were that dangerous, did you? That’s why it helps to be a little more discerning when shopping for personal care products.

It’s not about the money
Many of us choose personal skin care products that are fragrant or friendly to our budget, unknowingly buying into a lifestyle that is bad for us in the long run.

Mindful and discriminating consumers select brands that contain organic and plant-based biodegradable ingredients because they know that many synthetic brands use petroleum-derived chemicals like parabens and phthalates that are harmful to the skin and stick around a long time in the environment.

Moreover, shoppers who know better would rather forsake fragrance and fancy packaging for nature-based face mask recipes, soaps, scrubs, or skin care products that aren’t harmful to the body. They also do this in support of the manufacturers of these natural skin care products, knowing that they follow environment-friendly practices such as using recycled packaging and renewable energy sources.

In addition, mindful buyers who are environmentally aware understand that natural-based skin care remedies are often a bit more expensive because of the special ingredients they contain and the process they have to go through.

It’s about your bodyStrawberry
Sometimes it’s so much better to create your own soap, face scrubs, and masks rather than buying something off the shelf — especially when you’re unsure about the materials that these commercial skin care products contain.

If you don’t know where to begin, do a Google search online and you’ll find a thousand and one homemade face masks and skin care remedies. The best thing about them? They’re not only cheap and safe for the skin, they’re also easy to make and can be put together using ingredients that can be found in your kitchen. Who would ever think that the humble yogurt and the honey that you put in your tea can actually be part of your natural facial masks recipe?

A word of caution
Not everyone takes well to natural facial masks and other nature-based skin care products, however. Some people may unknowingly be allergic to honey or to yogurt, and putting these ingredients on their faces or skin may make them break out instead of enhancing their complexion.

It always helps to do a spot test before applying your homemade facial masks to your face. Keep the mixture there for a few hours. If your skin turns red or itchy, that may be a sign that you are allergic to something in your facial mask.

What’s wonderful about making your own skin care masks is that you have a wealth of choices — all natural, from homemade products and all are good for you. Apples, oranges, peaches, eggs, milk, oatmeal, strawberries—the list is endless! If one doesn’t work for you, move on to the next. You will surely find a face mask recipe that will benefit your skin without the allergies.

Remember, we all have unique chemical composites that might differ from others…it is important to not give up and to seek out and experiment with a natural home-based recipe you will be able to call your very own~
