Natural face masks are those little extra treats for your skin at regular intervals to really give it that extra oomph and won’t cause you damage or make threats to your health. Even if you have a stringent daily cleansing and moisturising routine, a natural face mask once a week or fortnight (though it will depend on your skin type and how prone you are to oily skin and breakouts) can work wonders towards tightening your pores, brightening up your complexion, and draw out impurities.
When searching for great organic face masks look for natural ingredients, ones that are plant-based or derived. Plant and herbal extractions and essential oils give you nature in its purest form so you can reap the health benefits without worrying about allergic reactions to synthetic additions and chemicals. They are also a more earth-conscious choice and a more sustainable option.
Choosing natural facial masks can indicate that the company who produces them not only cares about your skin, but also the environment (for example consider the pollution from producing these unwanted chemicals), and other important issues such as animal testing. By choosing to support natural and organic companies you are choosing to contribute your funds to their eco-friendly ethos, and not supporting competitors who have less regard for you and an organic skin care regime, our environment and the inhabitants.
If you are prone to breakouts, don’t write off natural facial masks. You don’t need chemicals to clear up your skin, and in fact chemical-based masks may actually add redness and irritation to your skin woes. Seek out a natural face mask with soothing plant based ingredients such as manuka honey (a natural anticeptic), green tea extract and jojoba oil to best benefit your skin and reduce those exasperating pimples. Clay based natural face masks soothe the skin away from irritation while still removing all the unwanted grime and dead skin cells which contribute to that acne problem.
Think outside your pocket when it comes to organic face masks. You may find them more expensive than a standard inorganic face mask, but you are paying for your health benefits as well, so given the side effects and ill health issues that can come by using the artificial mass produced products, you may end up paying a lot more for your health in the future. And that’s without counting the environmental costs. If money is an issue you might consider making your own natural face masks to reap the benefits without compromising your health.
Once you have your carefully selected organic facial masks remember to use them as directed, including the suitable frequency for use, and be careful around your eyes – it’s the most delicate and thinnest skin on your body.
