Body masks should be a mandatory part of our beauty routine, but we often make mistakes because we only pay attention to the skin of the face …
With more and more attention being paid this year, especially to the ingredients we use on our face, it’s time to get to know the skin’s hydration and detoxification. Just as facial skin benefits facial masks, so does the skin of the body.
Body masks, especially in professional treatments, are always applied after peeling, cleansing dry skin or peeling with coffee / sugar, which is definitely a better option if you want the mask to penetrate deeper layers of the skin.
After peeling, the mask is applied to both sides of the body. In the spa, you are usually wrapped in plastic and a blanket while the products do their job.
Most body masks have the following ingredients:
– clay or mud, which detoxifies the skin. Clay, kaolin or bentonite are used for skin tightening effects
– algae are re-mineralized
– Aloe vera, which is soothing, especially for sunburned skin
– Shea butter or body creams, rich and moisturizing
Try and … Natural anti-aging masks
Even if it’s the first time you’ve gone to a beauty salon for a first time, it’s possible to make a body mask at home. If your skin is dry or dehydrated, you need a moisturizing mask; If the skin is swollen or red, the mask should relax and if your skin is oily – it will help to remove the mask.
Body skin masks
Mud (body mask) is applied to peeling cleansed skin. The basis for making body mud is clay, and the choice of clay depends on the needs of the skin. Clays contain essential minerals that nourish the skin.
Put 6 tablespoons of clay, 1 dcl of Aloe vera gel, 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and essential oils depending on skin type. Mix gently by adding water until you get a creamy mixture that is lightly applied to the skin. Apply the mixture to the desired body parts.
If you want the mud to have an anti-cellulite effect, add 1-2 drops of lemon, sage, rosemary, cedar atlas, pine and cypress. Allow the mud to dry on the skin for half an hour for 40 minutes, then rinse with water.
