DIY Face Masks (And Other Skin Care Nightmares)
From giving you tips for planting your favorite Eminence Organics ingredients to teaching you how to upcycle your empty skincare containers, we at Eminence Organics are all about embracing the sustainable DIY culture. However, we err on the side of caution when it comes to your skin. When you forgo professional products for DIY skin care, you run the risk of doing more harm than good, aggravating skin conditions and wreaking havoc on your complexion. Here are three DIY skin care treatments to steer clear of and the Eminence Organics substitutes you can use instead.
SKIP THE DIY CHARCOAL & GLUE MASK
If viral videos of painful peel off masks haven't dissuaded you from skipping this DIY face mask, the damage it can do to your skin might do the trick. Dr. Yannis Alexandrides tells the Daily Mail, "You are essentially taking the top layer of your skin off, which is why it feels so instantly smooth, but with this comes many of your essential oils and protective cells, which keep the skin healthy and help guard against bacteria." This leaves your skin even more vulnerable to drying and damaging pollutants that accelerate the visible signs of aging.
INSTEAD, TRY THIS: EMINENCE ORGANICS BALANCING MASQUE DUO
Find a more natural solution in Eminence Organics Balancing Masque Duo. This award-winning mask duo combines a deep cleaning Charcoal T-Zone Purifier and moisturizing Pomelo Cheek Treatment to refine pores and restore skin's moisture, without the painful removal process.
PUT DOWN THE BAKING SODA FACE SCRUB
Another popular treatment is the DIY face scrub. While baking soda might give you the same sensation as your favorite exfoliant, it has a high that can mess with your skin's moisture barrier. StyleCaster says, "Using it even once will cause damage to your skin, even if you can't see it with your naked eye, and prolonged use on the face will eventually cause significant moisture loss, along with compromising your skin's ability to regulate itself."
