DIY: Pink Grapefruit and Honey Clay Mask

Get your skin looking young, supple and free of dirt and toxins with this ‘Pink Grapefruit and Honey Clay mask’.

Today’s mask contains 3 simple natural ingredients that are great for the skin

Honey attracts the dirt from skin pores and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. It is also known to hydrate and condition the skin. It is excellent for use in skincare.

Clay absorbs dirt and toxins from the skin, it also cleans and exfoliates the skin while improving blood circulation. This means there is an increased amount of oxygen supply which is needed for healthy skin. Exfoliating helps to remove the layer of dead cells which give the appearance of dull skin, to reveal healthy glowing skin. Clay is also full of minerals which are good for healthy skin.

Grapefruit is rich in antioxidants and therefore fights free radicals to keep the skin looking young. It is also an excellent astringent and exfoliant and therefore has a cleansing and toning effect on the skin.

Note: Grapefruit can cause photosensitization which means it makes the skin sensitive to the sun, so make sure you use adequate sun protection on your skin after using this mask.
