Top 3 Skin Detoxifying Masks
Published Dec 19, 2011
Is your skin ready for a detox after all of your holiday indulgences? After testing hundreds of good-for-you skin treatments, we realized that green is good, especially on your face! These three earthy masks all use natural ingredients to brighten your skin and unclog your pores.
This verdant sludge is just about the best thing that can happen to your skin. Formulated with antioxidant-rich matcha green tea, goji berries, and açaí, the thick mask restores radiance and detoxifies clogged pores. Akin to a green smoothie in texture, this natural skin purifier (almost) looks good enough to eat.
This clarifying mud mask hails from the Dead Sea—mud from this region is enriched with more than 20 minerals that boost hydration and increase the skin's oxygen flow. The clay treatment works best in a steamy shower, where it pulls out pollutants while soothing inflamed skin. A quick rinse reveals smaller blackheads and a glowing complexion.
Ocean vegetables are one of nature’s strongest cell regenerators, making them a perfect ingredient in skin care. This seaweed mask from 100% Pure is full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes. Seaweed draws out toxins and increases blood flow to the surface of your skin. The masks dries hard (due to the French clay in its formula) but easily washes off with lukewarm water.
