DIY FACE MASK RECIPES

Many common foods can be mixed into your PAAVANI Cleansers & Masks to create a self-care ritual made for a queen! Organic, natural foods are packed with nutrients, enzymes and vitamins that nourish & build your body, so, why not apply these actions to the skin?

Let’s take a look at some common household foods that can support skin health:

  • Fruits are an excellent source of enzymes and vitamin C, thus adding them to your skincare routine will help brighten the skin.
  • Yogurt has natural probiotics which produce lactic acid to help break down dead skin cells and also reduce the appearance of blemishes.
  • Milk helps to deeply nourish and hydrate the skin.
  • Honey is antibacterial, full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory, making it an ideal go-to for many common skin ailments.
  • Oils that are high grade and unrefined mimic the skin’s natural production of sebum, helping to heal, protect and balance the integrity of the skin.

This spring, get your creative juices flowing and try adding a mixture of fresh, organic fruit, yogurt, milk, honey and/or oil to your Cleanser & Mask Ritual.
