Before applying any homemade mask

As soon as you choose the recipe for the face mask that suits your needs, it is important that you do a test before applying it on your face. The point where you will apply a small amount will depend on what you want to know. In case you're not sure if a homemade mask will suit you, try the arm first. After this, you can move to other areas closer to your face.

If you want to know if you are allergic, apply it behind the ear. If you want to test if it will irritate your skin, test a small spot on the area that you consider sensitive. If you want to know if an ingredient will clog your pores or make your acne worse, try a minimal amount in the area where you usually have breakouts. In all cases, wait several hours to make sure you are not taking any risks. It is worth reminding you that if you are allergic to any food, you should not use it as an ingredient for your natural mask.

What to avoid when making homemade masks

While it is true that we could make "homemade masks" with almost any ingredient that you have in your cupboard, you should know that many ingredients, even if they are completely natural, can damage your skin and you should avoid them at all costs. For example, there are those who swear by the effectiveness of baking soda to cleanse or exfoliate the skin and vinegar to tone; But this is counterproductive and dangerous, as several studies show.

The bicarbonate has a pH of 9, making it excessively alkaline skin having a pH of 4.5 to 5. Moreover, white vinegar has a pH of 2.4 to 3.4, making it very acidic. The result of using these ingredients is drying, eliminating the beneficial bacterial flora that lives on the skin and also risks you to suffer a chemical burn that can leave you with scars.

Apple cider vinegar and lemon juice should be used on skin that is not sensitive and does not have wounds. Although it is true that the pH of apple cider vinegar is more or less similar to that of the skin (4,5), in these cases it can irritate the skin. Lemon also appears frequently, but its PH is very acidic (2.4 to 2.6) and can cause spots on the face if you expose yourself to the sun.

The homemade masks should respond directly to your needs and skin type. In all cases, it is important to hydrate, nourish and tone; but the intensity of these actions will depend on the type of skin. Even if you have oily skin, you need to hydrate, as it is possible to have acne and a bright face but it can still be dehydrated.
