Today we're going to mix green things together and put them on our face. Why? Because our skin is going to love it, and these particular green things feel downright comfortable and cozy while they are doing their skin-nourishing magic.
It's green synergy at its best!
Let's make a green comfort mask!
IngredientsFor this mask, I have combined the following:
- Moringa powder
- Powdered Pumpkin Seed
- French Green Clay (Montmorillonite)
For the liquid, a green tea and matcha infusion makes the entire experience pure green pleasure, but you could also make a fresh cucumber juice, use distilled water or even whole milk.
Tip: Start by adding a teaspoon of green clay and letting the liquid absorb it before adding the other green things. This will make for a lump-free mixture.
ApplyingAlways apply a mask to a clean face for maximum benefits.
You can use a small natural bristle brush to apply if you like, but it is also quite do-able to use the back of the spoon you just used to mix everything together with.
Tip: Clay masks should be removed before they are completely dry, so to allow yourself more mask-sitting time, apply a thick layer. I usually layer up 3 or 4 times.
Let the mask sit for 10-15 minutes.
This is the perfect time to sit and enjoy the rest of that cup of green tea you just made to use as the liquid.
