Why Choose a Natural Face Mask Recipe?

If you are somebody who likes to look after themselves, eat right and exercise, then I am sure you also check the lables on the food that you buy in the supermarkets. You probably also try (as far as possible) to buy organic food stuff as you know that many companies add dangerous pesticides, chemical flavorings and colorants to their foods. But I am not so sure if you read the lables of those pots and tubes of shelf-bought facial masks.

You will be shocked to find that many of your favourite products and even the so-called organic products also contain harmful chemicals that not only damage you skin, but is also bad for you health.

These chemical ingredients like propylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea, parabens and coloring agents like FD & C Yellow and Blue. These ingredients have been researched and can cause allergic reactions, asthma, headaches, nausea and general fatigue.

So you can see that it is important to be aware of what ingredients are used in commercial skin care masks and to make informed decisions when buying them.

The price is irrelevant

Mostly we choose products based on advertising done by the company selling them, because they smell nice or even just because we can afford them. We don't always know that the products we are buying could be bad for us.

If you really care about your skin and your health you will buy from companies who use organic and biodegradable ingredients in their products. So don't just buy a face mask because the packaging is pretty or because it smells nice, buy something you know will be good for you and good for the environment.

Perhaps these products are a little more costly than others because they have natural ingredients and a shorter shelf life due to the fact that they don't contain all kinds of dangerous conservatives.

It's your health that is important

So yes, you can buy great organic soaps, moisturizers, face masks and scrubs, but it is even better to make your own!

In this day and age you can find almost anything on the internet. A simple search will yield many natural facial masks recipes and recipes for other skin care products.

What are the benefits? Here are a few:

o They are cheap to make

o Safe for your body and your skin

o Simple to make

o Ingredients are easy to find and you may even have them already!

Some ingredients commonly used in facial masks recipes include honey, yogurt, green tea and oatmeal.

You will soon find that it is a joy to make your own facial masks as you are truly spoilt for choice. All of the ingredients are totally natural and therefore great for your body and skin. If you do a little research and play around a little you will find a recipe or two that will give you the results you want.
