How To Customize Your Face Mask

How To Customize Your Face Mask

The first thing when you think of the term “self-care” is a face mask, not the ones that are mandatory these days but the ones you knew before the covid-era. A face mask is a great way to soothe and nourish your skin, and also feel relaxed at the same time. Although squeezing out a face mask from the tube and applying it directly to your face may be convenient, a lot of clean beauty brands these days are opting to keep their face masks dry, as a powder. One main reason to do this is not just avoid the use of synthetic preservatives, but also it gives you the freedom to customize your face mask as you control the medium which you may use. 

Clay has pore cleansing properties. It literally acts as a vacuum cleaner for your pores. Dried botanicals are added to the clays to provide added benefits and target specific skin issues. 

These are some ideas for the medium with which you can mix a face mask, as per your needs. These are items found in your kitchen pantry easily. 

  1. Plain water - You can never go wrong with filtered or distilled water for your masks. Mix in a clean bowl with a mask brush, and let it bloom for sometime, usually under a minute. Blooming is basically letting the mask sit for a few seconds- up to a minute, to allow the dried botanical powders in the mask to get rehydrated and provide maximum benefits. Water is perfect to be used for all skin types.
  2. Milk- Dairy or plant milk provides an added nourishment to dry masks. If you feel that clay masks overly dry your skin, you may use milk to add a moisturizing effect.
  3. Yogurt- It contains a low amount of Lactic acid, which can act as a gentle exfoliant, in addition to the nourishing and cleansing properties of a clay based mask.
  4. Honey- Raw Honey is an excellent emollient and humectant, meaning it helps retain moisture in your skin. Honey can be used straight up as a mask, but adding a few drops of honey to water as a base in clay masks elevates its emollient properties. Our Blush Face Mask already has dehydrated honey powder in it.
  5. Floral Waters/Hydrosol - The next best thing to water in dry face masks is plant and floral hydrosols. Rose, Lavender, Hibiscus, Citrus, mint, whatever you can get your hands on. Floral hydrosols take your masking experience up a notch. 

Practice caution - A lot of DIY’s use Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) straight on the face. If you have normal or oily skin, you may add a few drops of ACV to water as a base. I would not recommend using them neat on the face if you have sensitive skin. It has natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids and has a very low PH (2-3), hence people with sensitive skin may experience redness and over exfoliation which can remove the protective top layer of skin. 

Do not recommend Oil - Clays and dried floral and herbal powders are best activated with water or anything containing maximum water component. Mixing your clay based mask with oil may negate the purpose of the mask. Oil does not activate your dry mask, it just sits on top of your skin and does nothing. You may use a good quality face oil after using the mask, if you feel dry after a clay mask to ease the tight feeling.

Hello to all of you. William Lee here, and I was duped by a B it coin scam. A few months ago, I saw an opportunity to increase my income and, although not fully understanding the risks, I invested a portion of my retirement funds into B Coin coin. I was told that I couldn’t locate or reverse the BIT coin, and I couldn’t access or take money out of my wallet. I had thought my B it coin wallet was gone forever until my cousin told me about RECOVERYEXPERT AT RESCUETEAM dot COM, a cryptocurrency and funds recovery firm that was able to locate and provide me access to it. I met a RECOVERY EXPERT by chance, and she not only helped me get my money back but also provided me with helpful bitcoin ideas. I am writing a review of RECOVERY EXPERT since I promised them I would, and I strongly recommend using their services.
Email correspondence with him can be sent to {recoveryexpert at rescueteam dot com}.


If you’re not familiar with cryptocurrency trading, I strongly advise you to either stay away from it completely or invest very cautiously. I was forced to invest a significant amount of my life savings on a forex platform in an attempt to increase my profits, but I ultimately lost roughly 95,000 USD to this scam. I was not allowed to take my money out after I had invested and made a profit. I sent a letter to customer service, but it was ineffective, so I realized I had been duped. I was fortunate enough to come across a genuine deal retrieval agent at (recoveryexpert at rescueteam dot com) after much looking for ways to acquire assistance. I decided to give it a shot and explained my condition to him. He gave me his word that he would help me get my money back. In all honesty, he performed a fantastic job, and my money was restored to my wallet account within a few days. I’m quite appreciative to have encountered someone with such exceptional abilities; it’s truly remarkable.

I would especially want to thank Recovery Expert, a specialized expert in tracing lost Bitcoin wallets and cryptocurrency recovery. My spouse and I were unlucky enough to become victims of an internet con artist posing as experts and professionals in the realm of investments. It came out that we had been duped after investing a total of $189,000. When we inquired about the withdrawal of the cash, the con artist gave us a number of justifications and insisted that we invest more money. The profits had increased dramatically by the time it was time for us to retire our withdrawals. We found Recovery Expert, who was able to retrieve our lost monies, during our search for information on how to recover lost funds.

I lost a significant amount of money as a result of falling for a fraudulent cryptocurrency exchange scam. I decided to invest in cryptocurrencies after they persuaded me that doing so would provide respectable returns. But after a few weeks, I discovered it was a hoax, and my cash had been taken by the con artists. I confessed in a colleague, feeling hopeless and lost, and she suggested a professional team of hackers who specialize in money recovery. They recovered my investment once I contacted them at {RECOVERYEXPERT AT RESCUETEAM DOT COM}. They impressed me with their professionalism and competence, and I heartily recommend them to anyone who needs help getting money back from online scammers. Please get in touch if you or someone you know has been the victim of similar frauds. Kindly get in touch with Recovery Expert at “RECOVERYEXPERT AT RESCUETEAM DOT COM.” By sharing my story, I hope to increase awareness and save others from being victims of these dishonest schemes.

I kindly request that you get in touch with this reliable hacker at (recoveryexpert at rescueteam dot com). I was deceived into believing that I was an investor in binary options and B it coin. These con artists stole $2BTC and $34,000 from my B it coin wallet. It took some time for me to learn they were scams, and this hurt a lot.When my in-laws learned about it, they gave me the name and address of an expert. He assisted me in getting my misplaced BIT coins back. If you are looking to recoup any money you may have lost to online scams, false hackers, or online dating frauds, phony binary investors, and b it coin wallet breaches.For assistance, contact (recoveryexpert at rescueteam dot com).
