Pomegranates aren’t just for eating anymore! Did you know pomegranates are great for your skin since they are packed with brightening and complexion clearing antioxidants? You can even make your own vegan skin mask with pomegranates and a few other simple ingredients. If you mix the pomegrnates with a little clay, your skin will look great since it draws out any impurities to leave your skin looking smooth and wonderful. Add a little honey for an antibacterial boost and to keep the clay from drying out quickly. If you have sensitive or dry skin or an allergy to clay, substitute the clay powder in the ingredients list for Greek yogurt instead. Here’s how to make your very own pomegranate clay mask at home:
One tablespoon clay of dry clay powder. If you don’t have this, use a clay based mask. Greek yoghurt will work as a substitute.
One to two tablespoons pomegranate juice
One teaspoon honey
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl using a brush or your fingers. Don’t use a metal spoon! Using a metal spoon messes with the clay. Apply the face mask to your cleansed face and neck.
Let the mask sit for ten to fifteen minutes and wash off with warm water.
That’s it! Wasn’t that easy? Does your face feel fabulous after applying this simple mask?
