DIY SUPERFOOD FACE MASK
This superfood face mask is nourishing for dull skin & rejuvenates and exfoliates dead skin cells. Chia seeds soothe inflammation and calm acne blemishes. The Omega-3 fatty acids in Chia can help aid the healing process of irritated blemish wounds, as well as protect the outer layer of skin from bacteria.
The texture of this face mask is like that of a slimy. As soon as oats and chia seeds come in contact with water, they form a gel like consistency. However, it is a task to apply this mask but the end results are worth the hustle. I kept this mask on for a good 30 minutes to let my skin soak each and every benefit of this hydrating face mask.
I call this superfood face mask “face pudding” since it’s edible, delicious and contains all healthy ingredients for the body. You can make a bowl full of this pudding, use one or two spoons as a face mask and eat the rest.
You’ll need :
- 1 tablespoon Chia Seeds
- 1/2 tablespoon Oats Powder
- 1/2 tablespoon Cacao Powder
- 1 tablespoon Raw Honey
- Pinch of Cinnamon
- Make powder of chia seeds and oats in a blender.
- Soak this powder in 4 tablespoons water for 5 minutes.
- Now add other ingredients and mix well to form a thick gel.
- Apply a thick layer all over your face and remove while rubbing gently after 30 minutes.
