Pro Tip: Any time you’re trying any kind of new mask or product, do a test spot on your wrist or arm for 10-15 minutes to make sure you don’t react poorly to it.
This definitely makes enough for two people, so if you want to do this with your girlfriend or boyfriend, you definitely will have some extra to use.
This is going on our face, and the whole point is to give our skin the best treatment available, so let’s go for the real stuff – get everything as organic and natural as possible.
If there was one superfood I would recommend for everyone, it would be turmeric. It has very very potent, amazing anti inflammatory benefits. This is not only good for your skin, it’s good for everything. It helps prevent disease, it helps cure disease, and can help with inflamed acne.
I love the benefits of coconut. It’s got a lot of vitamins and a lot of healthy fats, which are amazing for your skin. This will also help moisturize dry skin. Coconut is full of antioxidants, which you can’t get enough of! They’re amazing for your skin – brightening, anti-ageing, and full of probiotics. Probiotics aren’t just good for your gut… Sometimes we can have a bacterial imbalance in our skin, and probiotics can help balance that good and bad bacteria.
The main point of the garbanzo bean flour is to be used as a binder, but I really like everything I use to have some kind of beauty or health benefit. Garbanzo beans naturally have a lot of vitamins (VItamin C – great for brightening skin) and antioxidants. Just a little added benefit there :).
Manuka is the purest form of honey. It’s got such great antibacterial properties, so it will really help any acne blemishes, and it’s also really great for moisturizing. Honey is considered a humectant, which is what really locks in moisture, so we’re really combatting that dry skin by adding it.
Lemon adds a little brightness to this face mask, and it is really good for blemishes because it dries them up, but doesn’t dry out your skin.
