In this post, I’ll explore some organic strategies for creating healthier skin.
The whole idea of facial masks is to help nourish the skin, soothe the individual’s skin and help to improve skincare while alleviating stress.
Unfortunately, most of these products include harmful, synthetic ingredients that can trigger allergic reactions, damage the skin and potentially even cause other, more serious health problems.
Luckily, it’s possible to make your own organic mask and give yourself a natural facial at home. This is the perfect introduction to organic beauty, so it’s a great place for us to start.
Let us start by looking at the benefits of face masks and facials in general. Essentially, the aim of a facial will normally be to open up the pores on the skin and thereby allow them to breathe. At the same time, this helps to unclog the pores that might otherwise be blocked by dirt or bacteria.
This is of course how spots and other blemishes often form; so, by using facial products, you can actually reduce the likelihood of that happening.
Meanwhile, many facial products are also designed to help you scrub away the top layer of the skin. This is where dead skin cells and dirt can collect, and by removing that layer, you can reveal the much fresher and healthier-looking skin underneath.
People who use face masks and facials regularly, will often look as though they are glowing!
Another nice benefit is that when you use face masks and scrubs before going out into the sun, it will allow the sun’s rays to penetrate deeper, thereby giving you a healthier boost in vitamin D.
On top of that, face masks are usually left for a short time to be absorbed into the skin. This, combined with the opened-up pores and cleared upper skin layer; this means that those all-important nutrients are better able to reach the deeper layers of the skin where they can rejuvenate and support your tissue for a healthier look.
As we’ll see in a moment, using the best natural face mask will allow you to enjoy all of these benefits to an even greater extent.
How to Make Facials For Relaxation
But let’s not forget the simple pleasure of a facial – especially a natural facial at home. Rubbing in these oils and lotions will essentially feel like a massage right on those tight face and head muscles.
This is ideal for relieving tension, headaches and especially when you combine that with the fact that you’re lying back and being indulged, while at the same time probably listening to soothing music.
Most of us spend all our time rushing around feeling very busy; while being exposed to toxic and dirty elements in the air. So, is there anything better to come home and be nourished by a natural organic facial cleanser?
Benefits of Organic Facial Products
As for the benefits of choosing organic facial products, this comes down to the type of ingredients you’re using, as well as the experience.
For starters, making your own organic facial products is both a lot cheaper than buying them, and a lot more rewarding. These make great gifts that you can give to people and especially if you work hard to keep them looking beautiful and smelling nice. And that is where organic products really have the edge. Most are made from essential oils, which creates a very gentle and fully natural-seeming scent that is far more calming and soothing than anything that can be accomplished with harsh chemicals.
What’s more, is that these products will almost always be much healthier for you. That’s because you’re getting the naturally occurring nutrients, vitamins and minerals from the natural products and it’s because you’re able to choose precisely what’s going to go into it.
Moreover, a lot of the unnatural scents, dyes, and astringents used in the commercial products will often do more harm than good to the skin. Some of them have been linked with cancer, others with infertility, others still with dementia. We know this and yet a lot of people carry on using them!
Just some of the harmful agents included in non-organic skincare products include coal tar, DEA, ethoxylated surfactants, formaldehyde, parfum, hydroquinone, lead, and mercury.
Common Ingredients Used in Making Organic Mask or Organic Facial Cleanser
There are a ton of common ingredients you can choose to make your own organic mask or organic facial cleanser.
One of the most popular methods is to make a facial scrub using sugar and coconut oil. Here, the coconut oil will nourish the skin and hold the mixture together in a pleasant lubricant, while the sugar will provide the slight corrosion needed to open up the pores and remove those dead skin cells on the surface.
All you need is:
• ¼ cup of granulated sugar
• ½ cup of coconut oil
• 1 tablespoon of citrus fruit zest (optional)
• ½ teaspoon of citrus essential oil
Steps to Produce Organic Facials
Step 1: Get a small pan
Step 2: Fill a pot to half with water, and put it on fire
Step 3: Place the small pan in the pot with water
Step 4: Gradually miss all the above ingredients together, in the small pan using a double boiler.
Step 5: Package and use
Of course, this also has the rather pleasing added bonus of saving you a lot of money when compared to the commercial options!
Although, common ingredients you’ll want to stock up on include avocado, oatmeal, honey, lemon, banana, melon, coconut oil and all of the essential oils. Pretty much any essential oil will act as a great massage oil that also nourishes and protects the skin.
