The contents of your kitchen may hold more than just the ingredients for supper.

Homemade facemasks have been around for a long time, but an antioxidant facial takes the face mask of yesterday and hurls it into the 21st century with additional benefits and rich ingredients that can literally transform your skin.

Antioxidants in any form can protect your skin cells from damages. Various types of antioxidants can be found in foods, skin care products, vitamins, and other products promising amazing results.

However, these products are often expensive, and may contain additional ingredients that can counter-act the positive benefits of antioxidants.

The simple solution is an easy homemade antioxidant face mask that gives you all the benefits without the harmful additives and without a ridiculous price tag.

The main ingredient in this antioxidant face mask is Turmeric, which has been a beauty secret of Asian countries for centuries.

Its beauty benefits are unmatched by any cosmetic counter product, and it is easy to find and simple to use.

Here is what you will need:

  • Turmeric: This basic kitchen ingredient has been used for centuries as a powerful antioxidant and anti-aging product. It is also a powerful force against acne, eczema, redness, and promotes skin healing and rejuvenation. It also helps to soften lines and wrinkles.

 

  • Matcha Green Tea: Matcha green tea is known for its antioxidant properties. This particular tea has 137 times more antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea.

 

 

  • Vegetable Glycerine: This is a clear, odorless liquid that comes from natural plant oils. It attracts moisture to the skin and is easily absorbed, leaving your skin hydrated. For more recipes with vegetable Glycerine, click here.

 

  • Organic Coconut Oil: This is a wonderful natural moisturiser for all skin types and contains antioxidant properties. It also prevents drying, flaking, and can reduce wrinkles and fine lines. For more recipes with Coconut oil, click here.

Begin by adding a few teaspoons of turmeric to a small glass bowl.

Add about one tablespoon of Matcha Green Tea and two teaspoons each of vegetable glycerine and organic coconut oil.

Mix well to ensure all ingredients are completely combined.

Once the mixture has a smooth texture with no lumps, pour the facemask into an airtight container.

When you are ready to use your antioxidant facemask, simply apply the mask directly to the skin and allow to set for 15-20 minutes.

When you are finished, gently wash off the mask with warm water and a soft cloth. Apply your favorite natural moisturiser and enjoy the results of naturally beautiful skin.
