I’m so excited to share this beauty secret with you! Some secrets are too good not to share, and this mask is one of them. I always notice a definite radiant glow after every treatment of this DIY Detoxifying Essential Oil Mask. I seriously love the results, and hope you will try it as well!
Skin, our largest organ, acts as the sponge in our day-to-day life. The quality of the air you encounter, water you bathe with, and products you use all gets soaked right into your skin! The good stuff and the toxic stuff.
My new mission this summer is to clean up my beauty routine products. I recently downloaded an app called Think Dirty which reveals the toxicity levels of major ingredients in your household cleaners, cosmetics, and personal care products. When you scan a product, the app gives a score based on how safe or toxic the product is. If you scan a product that has a high toxicity rating, it will provide alternative options that are safer and cleaner.
After all, what goes in, on, or near our body ultimately impacts our health!
So I went a little scan happy…
My go-to Lysol All Purpose Cleaner had a whopping score of 9/10 on the dirty meter. TRASH.
Same score for the Air Wick plug-ins I used to freshen my house. TRASH.
Mario Badescu facial masks all scored high on the dirty meter, and those things aren’t cheap either! (Eh, I just placed those to the side for now. I can’t commit them to the trash can just yet.)
I (mostly) cleared house with the dirty products and replaced them with organic, non-toxic products that I can check are safe for my wellbeing.
I like to know what’s in my products now, so I educate myself on the ingredients I’m introducing to my body. Even better, I like creating my own DIY recipes to substitute for the toxic products I’ve trashed.
(fanfare.) Enter, my DIY Detoxifying Essential Oil Mask! The ingredients are simple, good for your skin, and leaves your skin feeling refreshed and firm. After applying this mask, I always notice a vibrant glow to my skin that boosts my confidence and inspires me to wear less makeup. Enough radiance to inspire me to post #nofilterselfie pictures for anyone to see.
Here’s the dirt (pun intended) on the ingredients and how they can benefit your skin. Continue reading “DIY Detoxifying Essential Oil Mask”
