Kiwi-Strawberry-Cucumber Facial Mask - How to Prepare and Apply

Facial masks that moisturize and nourish face skin are usually expensive and consist of harsh chemicals. But why to spend a fortune on a facial mask if you can prepare one yourself? Making your own facial mask is easy and fun. Homemade masks are also healthier and therefore better for your facial skin.

To prepare a great facial mask all you need is strawberries, a kiwi and a cucumber - cheap and easily available at any grocery store. Kiwi seeds will help gently exfoliate the skin leaving your face smooth and soft. Kiwi is also rich in alpha-hydroxy acid. Strawberries are rich in alpha-hydroxy acid. This acid gently cleans the facial skin and reduces acne. Also, strawberries might help eliminate dark circles under the eyes. Cucumbers can help clean, nourish and hydrate your skin. And because they have the same pH as your skin they can do it without stripping your facial skin of its natural protective acid layers.

How to make a Kiwi-Strawberry-Cucumber Facial Mask?

Place five large strawberries, a peeled kiwi and a half of a cucumber (peeled) in a blender. Keep two slices of cucumber to place them on your eyes during your facial, as they can help reduce dark circles under the eyes.

Mix the ingredients and add 1 tablespoon of sea kelp at a time until the mask has a creamy consistency. Kelp helps restore damaged skin cells. In addition to this, kelp reduces the production of sebum and therefore prevents acne and reduces wrinkles.

Once the facial mask has the right consistency wash you face and neck with lukewarm water and dry. Put the mask on your face and neck avoiding the eye area. Leave for about 10 minutes and rinse with cool water.
