DIY Detoxifying Face Mask! ♥ (For Acne, Skin Discoloration, Scars)

DIY Detoxifying Face Mask ( Mascara de Rosto detox)

Hi beautiful! I have a new video up for you on this DIY detoxifying face mask which is great for helping to eliminate acne blemishes, skin discolorations and scarring. This has rapidly become one of my favorite face masks because of the super powerful ingredients. I have a summary of the benefits of each ingredient below. They are packed with goodness for your skin! I like to do this face mask / scrub twice a week (usually before hopping in the shower), and I love the way it makes my skin feel. I recently broke out pretty bad (due to the stress of moving etc), and these ingredients have helped speed up the process of my skin's recovery.

I hope you enjoy the video and find it informative & helpful 

As mentioned, I've started using Apple Cider Vinegar (diluted in water) as a face toner and as a hair conditioner / hair rinse and I LOVE it 
 So happy I discovered this! I will make a video on it soon :) I've also been adding Himalayan Crystal Salt to my water, and it's very energizing and detoxifying (many people use this as a coffee replacement!).

Himalayan Crystal Salt
Pure "raw" unrefined hand-mined salt found naturally deep within the Himalayan Mountains

- It contains the full spectrum of 84 minerals & trace elements
- Works by drawing out toxins
- Acts as a natural exfoliant
- Naturally antiseptic and antimicrobial 

Some of the minerals found in the Himalayan salt that promote skin health are: 

 - Fights acne and reduces skin infections. 

 - aids in healing of the tissues and helps prevent scarring. It helps prevent acne by regulating the activity of oil glands. Zinc also promotes a healthy immune system and the healing of wounds. 

 - helps in healing skin infections by increasing oxygen consumption and the metabolic rate of the skin. 

 - keeps skin clear and smooth. Dry scalps, rashes, eczema and acne are often due to deficiencies of this mineral.


Raw Organic Honey
Try to find an unpasturized & organic form as this ensures all the healthy enzymes haven't been filtered out

- High in antioxidants
- Anti-bacterial & anti-inflammatory (great for acne)
- Naturally moisturizing & soothing
- Contains mild form AHA which is beneficial for exfoliation / eliminating scars

I sometimes simply apply honey on it's own to my entire face - usually before getting in the shower, and it's a quick pick-me-up for your skin!

Apple Cider Vinegar
With "The Mother" = cloudy appearance which contains enzymes, nutrients & healthy bacteria

- Anti-septic cleanser
- Regulates skin's natural pH level
- Tones the skin
- Contains mild form AHA which is beneficial for exfoliation / eliminating scars

Can also be diluted with water, and used as a face toner & hair conditioner / rinse
Add to baths to combat body acne
Also beneficial to drink for detox and weight management
