Being on lockdown has definitely given me more time, and one of the things that I focussing on during this time is my skincare, particularly my skin pampering. I love a good face mask - I pretty much collect them to be honest. I have more face masks than I do face wash, toner, makeup remover, eye cream, and face moisturiser combined, and that's saying something.
Here are a few of my current favourites, ones that I have been gravitating towards recently.
Woolworths Rejuvenating Clay Mask
The Pink Salt & Cucumber Extract Clay Face Mask from Woolworths is my most recently purchased mask and it is probably my favourite. It retails for R89.99 and is available online. It contains minerals that help soak up oils and impurities to leave your skin feeling cleansed and refreshed. Here are a few more benefits of this mask.
Suitable for all skin types
Palm oil derivatives are sustainably sourced
Hey Gorgeous Matcha & Manuka Face Mask
The Hey Gorgeous Matcha & Manuka face mask retails for R250 and it is available online. This amazing face mask is made with Coconut oil, Matcha Green Tea, Manuka Honey, Chamomile and Lavender to nourish, heal and hydrate the skin.
This is how it works:
Coconut oil is very beneficial to the skin. It nourishes, heals and hydrates. Manuka Honey is a natural antimicrobial, the power of honey to stimulate wound healing and promote healthy skin. It works as a humectant, drawing moisture into the skin, and the unique properties of Active Manuka Honey make it one of the most biologically active and beneficial honeys for the skin. It's perfect to enhance your skin's renewal process. Matcha Green Tea is rich in anti-oxidants and works effective to fight free radicals responsible for skin cell damage and ageing skin.
Are you worried about the coconut oil being to heavy for your skin, Hey Gorgeous have formulated 2 versions to suit all skin types. The second version containing Aloe theraputic gel, Matcha Green Tea, Manuka Honey, Chamomile and Lavender.
Hey Gorgeous Mineral Mud Mask
The Hey Gorgeous Mineral Mud Face and Body Mask retails for R205 and it is available online. The mud has a essential high salt and mineral content which has a dual purpose of exfoliating and naturally cleansing the skin. It removes toxins and impurities while also tightening and tones the skin. The mud infuses the skin with minerals leaving it clean, refreshed and hydrated.
This mask is made with some cool ingredients, namely; Icelandic Thermal Mud, Bentonite, Jojoba and Essential Oils. And this is how they work.
