What they are,how to use them,and why you need them in your cruelty-free beauty box.
Being a vegan,trying to lead a cruelty-free lifestyle and indulge in a simple yet satisfyingly rich and luxurious beauty routine-you may often find yourself in a pickle.
If you are struggling to find good products that are in line with your ethics and actually work,you have probaby already came to the freeing conclusion that your DIY beauty masks and tried and tested treats are undeniably the best and most affordable way you can pamper your skin with.
In this post I’m going to show you 3 different ways to incorporate these Compressed Face Mask Sheets and Disposable Palette Tiles from SKIN GROCERIES into your beauty regime,while using the products you already have in your capsule beauty cupboard-oh and your actual grocery cupboard as well.
How to turn your beloved moisturiser into an enriched deeply hydrating mask
A brilliant way to get the most out of your moisturiser:
Get a disposable (hence very sanitary) palette tile and scoop out a dollop of your face cream,add a few drops of a nourishing oil of your choice- I have been using the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse for years, and apply a generous amount on your face. Layer the sheet mask over the product,smooth it out,and let your skin soak up all the goodness while you sit back and relax.
You will not believe how plush and hydrated your skin will feel afterwards!
2. Fresh Avocado & Oat Mask
Avocados contain a lot of minerals such as iron, potassium, calcium, sodium, copper, magnesium, etc. They also contain vitamins A, E, B and K. Oatmeal on the other hand contains avenanthramides, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds that soothe itchy, dry and irritated skin.An avocado-oatmeal face mask will reach the deepest layers of the epidermis and give elasticity even to the driest skin.
Mash up half an avocado onto your disposable palette and add a tablespoon of oats. Stir the mixture until it turns into a uniform paste. Apply evenly to your skin and then layer the sheet mask on top, smoothing out the product and locking all the goodness inside.
3.Your perfect custom made facial
Typically, there’s a mix of oily and dry areas on different parts of your face, with the t-zone being a bit more oily and acne prone,the skin around the eyes being the more sensitive part of your face, and your skin is often dry and even flaky on the cheeks and/or under the eyes.
With a sheet mask that you can customize to suit your exact needs, making all parts of your skin happy is as easy as grocery shopping.
Apply the products directly onto the mask. I used a hydrating gel mask for the cheek area, an anti-aging serum under the eyes,a tea-trea blemish treatment on my chin and a mashed up kiwi fruit on the nose and forehead.
My skin felt amazing afterwards.
