An easy way to pamper yourself is indulging in a face mask at least once a week. There are hundreds of brands of face masks for every skin type that will tighten, tone, cleanse, regenerate and even firm up your skin. Now let me tell you, I have tested many a face mask girlfriend! And I can easily say that the BB Seaweed mask from LUSH should be in your top five go to recipes.
The ingredients are the perfect blend for every skin tone. This mask will help give you a flawless face wherever you’re on the very oily skin, or the dry sensitive skin end of the spectrum. Research further into its ingredients, and it’s easy to see why the LUSH BB Seaweed mask is magic in a pot.
Seaweed is packed with an unusually high concentration of minerals, amino acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. In addition to having anti-aging qualities, it is also known to help decrease skin pigmentation. Because seaweed is rich in iodine, it draws excess fluid and waste products from the skin, as well as helps boost thyroid functions.
Fresh Rose Petals
Rose oils help reduce swelling and redness on your skin. Their calming properties can also help sooth rosacea and eczema. As a natural astringent, rose helps tighten pores and restore your skin’s suppleness for a glowy complexion. Unlike conventional alcohol-based toners, rose leaves skin feeling smooth, not dried out.
Honey is moisturizing and soothing for the skin. It is naturally antibacterial, so helps treat and prevent acne. Honey is also said to decrease the appearance of scars and skin discolouration as it is clarifying and unclogs pores.
Lime Tree Flower
The lime tree flowers can be described easily in one word: tranquilizing. They help soothe itchy skin and even more importantly, relieve tension and anxiety. Lime tree flower can also be used to treat brown spots from sun damage.
The almonds in the BB Seaweed mask are ground up into fine dust to act as a gentle exfoliant. Almonds contain antioxidants and proteins which help regenerate skin and moisturize deeply. The high levels of vitamin E also help prevent cell damage.
For best results, apply the mask to clean skin, leave on until fully dry (15-20 minutes), then gently rinse off with warm water. There are roughly 6-7 uses per jar, which breaks down to about $1 per use. Talk about an affordable spa treatment! How do YOU pamper yourself?
