Morning Mask for Puffiness

Morning mask for puffyness

This face mask is for “one of those days” – or for when you either didn’t get enough sleep, not enough water or too salty food (or too much vino ;p ) the previous day.

The ingredients in this mask actively reduce puffiness, rejuvenate and moisturize the skin, so you can look (and maybe even feel) refreshed upon wearing it.

 

Active ingredients

Yogurt

Yogurt has cleansing, moisturizing and nourishing abilities, which makes it a very effective ingredient in homemade beauty products.
Yogurt natural contains antibacterial enzymes which have a positive effect on fighting acne.

 

Coffee

The caffeine absorbs into your skin and dehydrates the excess fluid in the tissue, so your skin is (temporarily) tighter and firmer.

Tip: If you drink coffee in the AM, you can apply the same coffee grounds that you used for your morning java.

 

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is perfect for beauty routine purposes as it has incredible qualities, including:

Saturated Fats

These fats help retain the moisture content of the skin, as they eliminate moisture loss through the pores of the skin. This makes the saturated fats key to keeping the skin smooth.

Disinfectant fatty acids

Lauric acid, caprylic acid, and decanoic acid. These three fatty acids have disinfectant and antimicrobial properties. Therefore coconut oil protects from microbial infections that can get into open wounds or through the pores.

Antioxidant Vitamin E

It’s high vitamin E levels help regenerate the skin. Vitamin-E is essential for healthy skin growth, repair of the skin, keeping skin smooth and protecting against cracking. It also prevents premature aging and wrinkling of the skin, since it has antioxidant properties.

Because of these active ingredients, coconut oil also has an anti-aging effect.

 

Lemon

Lemon is known for its antiseptic, astringent, mildly bleaching, rejuvenating and stimulating qualities.
It contains citric acid which rebuilds the skin’s natural pH-balance.
The high levels of vitamin C, help to maintain the collagen production, which is necessary for the skin and hair. Vitamin C also helps to combat infections. Therefore lemon is a perfect ingredient in beauty products for oily skin.
