Stressed? Exhausted? At the end of the road? Your Skin NEEDS this DIY face mask
While I can’t actually take away your stress (sorry!), here’s a solution to the skin woes at least. The honey in this anti-stress face pack is super hydrating, to keep skin supple and glowy. Plus, its enzymes soften the skin, while antiseptic and anti-fungal elements penetrate clogged pores to draw out impurities, thus tackling breakouts, reducing redness and calming inflammation.
Carrots are a terrific source of antioxidants, which neutralize the effect of stress and environment-induced free radicals. Their beta-carotene boosts the renewal process of skin cells, besides helping to nourish, tighten, revitalize and rejuvenate the complexion. Baking soda is alkaline in nature and hence disrupts the growth of bacteria (without disrupting the pH balance of the skin) to help fight acne.
2 tablespoons honey, 1 teaspoon fresh carrot juice, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Pour all the ingredients in a small bowl and stir well. Apply this paste all over your face and leave it on for 20 minutes. After that, remove the mask with lukewarm water. Finally, dip a cotton ball in rose water (or plain mineral water) and gently dab it all the face and neck.
How do you keep yourself sane when the world is spinning out of control?
