At Avazera, we're huge fans of DIY and natural skincare! In today's post, Jelena - Avazera's Marketing Communications Manager shares her favourite DIY detox mask made with our organic Chlorella and Moringa along with one of her favourite skincare ingredients - raw manuka honey!
Acne - we've all been there. For me? It truthfully lasted a couple of years, however, looking back on the journey my skin has been on I have learned to be grateful while picking up important lessons along the way. One of those lessons being: keep it simple because less is more! While searching high and low for the latest natural anti aging skincare products and treatments (you name it - I've probably done it) I shifted my mindset and lifestyle to more of a natural approach. Today I am excited to share with you a quick DIY detox mask, which I also use as a spot treatment when my skin needs a pick-me-up!
As well, with the important need of wearing masks on a daily basis and for long periods of time, maskne is the new acne! This gentle DIY mask recipe is perfect to help calm down irritation.
• ½ tsp. Avazera organic Chlorella
detoxifying • antioxidant-rich • anti-inflammatory
• ½ tsp. Avazera organic Moringa
antioxidant-rich • anti-bacterial | inflammatory
• 1-2 tbsp. raw manuka honey (depending if you're making a mask or spot treatment)
anti-bacterial | fungal | inflammatory | viral • hydrating • wound healing
1.) Mix all the ingredients well. I like to be fancy and use a makeup brush to help aid in the mixing and application process! However, it does help in applying the mask in an even layer.
2.) Leave the mask to sit for 15 to 20 minutes or if I am doing a spot treatment I let it stay on overnight.
3.) After just rinse off with warm water. If you're doing a full mask be sure to wash around your hairline as sometimes slight traces of honey can be left behind.
4.) Follow-up with your moisturizer of choice.
