Recently, I am fighting with acne. I know that acne is one of the problem all of us are fighting. I hate to have acne. But I can never avoid them as my skin is prone to acne. I decided to make homemade removing facial mask to reduce and prevent acne formation.
I made a little research and combined different ingredients for my acne preventing facial mask. After the first application, I was extremely happy with the results. My skin was less oily and softer than before. Also, over time acne formation decreased and my skin had smoother look.
In this homemade removing facial mask recipe, I decided to make some changes. And I used Aloe Vera gel and shea butter. Also, I have used one of my favourite natural and heathy beauty ingredients: bentonite clay. Bentonite clay had diverse area of use. You can make a toothpaste out of bentonite clay or a facial mask like this one.
That is what I like about bentonite clay. Also, it is suitable for almost all skin types. I also used essential oils in this recipe. But essential oils are optional. I just love the smell of them. What is more they can give a sense of freshness after applying your removing facial mask.
My main purpose with this was to fight against acne. As it turns out, this homemade removing facial mask can also makes my skin smoother. So, now it was become one of my favourite homemade cosmetic products.
