The perfect face mask for every skin

Hello beauties,

I've said quite a few times here how much I love DIY face masks and scrubs, there are so many ingredients to combine you can always make the perfect one no matter what your need is. When it comes to recipes, it is all about finding the right ingredients and mix and matching so it suits whatever it is that you need.
So here I decided to share with you a list of ingredients you can mix into a mask or scrub and what each one does, so you can mix your perfect mask. It can be also a guide of what ingredients to look for next time your shopping for a store bought mask

Please always remember to patch test any mask, store bought or homemade before putting it on your face to make sure your skin doesn't react badly to any of the ingredients!

  • black tea: soothes sunburns, and is antimicrobial, contains some essential polyphenols and tannin, reduces puffiness/inflammation
  • green tea: antioxidant and detoxifier, soothes rashes, increases healing rate, softens skin, heals sores and wounds, rejuvenates skin cells, improve psoriasis and dandruff, anti-aging, mood stabilizing
  • apple cider vinegar: anti inflammatory and softens skin
  • ground ginger: increases circulation, promotes sweating, opens pores, relieves pain
  • lemon: antioxidant (brightens skin)
  • olive oil: moisturizes skin
  • Himalayan salt: soothes insect bites, heals blisters, softens skin
  • oatmeal: soothes, anti-inflammatory
  • peppermint: increase blood flow, relieve congestion 
  • eucalyptus: increase blood flow, relieve congestion, increases energy
