Homemade facemasks can be so much gentler and kinder to our skin. In this mask I use 4 essential ingredients- oats, honey, yoghurt and lavender.
Oatmeal is an excellent exfoliator, which means that the dead cells can be flaked which then leave the skin. It deeply cleanses the pores and nourishes the skin.
Yogurt contains vitamins and minerals that stimulate dried skin.
The content of yogurt contains antibacterial agents that kill acne-causing bacteria.
Honey can help soften and moisturize the skin and is also rich in antioxidants.
Lavender essential oil (optional) helps soothe the skin and is great for sensitive skin issues.
Place in the fridge for 30 mins as it infuses. This will have a cooling effect on the skin. Massage the face mask onto slightly damp skin, leave for 20mins, then rinse off with warm water and a cloth.
My name is Laura Jayne and over the past 3 years along with my husband and 2 teenage boys, we have begun to be more aware of what we purchase and consume in our home. I believe that everyone can make steps to reduce what we spend, reduce the waste we produce, look at products that have an adverse effect on our health. When we do this it will not only benefit us personally, but will ultimately impact the planet we all live on, in a positive way.
My best advice, is to start educating yourself and keep asking questions as to why we need to live cleaner and greener!
