A facial mud mask is great to help cleanse and detoxify your skin and it's also a great way to treat yourself.
As you read a book, listen to your favorite podcast or just simply relax in the tub, you can face mask and relax your way through a healthier and more hydrated skin.
Now, be sure to look for products without chemicals as they may irritate your skin instead of nourishing it. If you want to ensure your facial mask does not contain any toxic ingredients you can make your own by following the easy recipe below.
For this specific recipe we used Melaleuca, Lavender and Frankincense for their skin rejuvenation and refreshing properties, however, you can replace them with the oils of your preference.
