The words “plant-based” and “detox” are definitely some serious buzzwords these days with what seems like everybody being on this super vegan health-kick.
However, when you take away all the gimmicks and fluff surrounding wellness in cosmetics and skincare, you’ll find that there are more than a few gems that are truly beneficial for your skin.
If you’ve been struggling with dull, tired skin, here are 3 must-have plant-based detox masks that will have you rejuvenated and refreshed after just one self-care session.
I know what you’re thinking—isn’t chlorophyll something for plants? Yeah, something like that.
It’s actually something found in plants and often taken as a supplement due to the fact that it’s super antioxidant and vitamin rich.
Cocokind took this green ingredient and turned it into a detox mask that purifies, brightens, and soothes the skin.
Unlike other masks of its kind, this one comes as a powder which means you have the freedom to mix it with water, yogurt, aloe, or whatever you want, to create a good mask.
We know that putting supergreens like spirulina and chlorella in your smoothies isn’t the most appetizing thing in the world, so how about reaping all the benefits by putting it directly on your face?
We know it sounds crazy, but Golde blended each powder with mango juice to create a powder-to-gel formula that detoxes and cleanses like no other.
Its fragrance-free, “just add water” plant-based mask gives you a nice, healthy (not green!) glow after just 10-15 minutes of wear and a nice warm water face rinse afterward.
Oftentimes, we’ll forget that fruit enzymes are as powerful as they are.
No, we shouldn’t be rubbing kiwi on our foreheads every fortnight, but it doesn’t hurt to add a gentle fruit exfoliant to our skincare routine.
With that in mind, this Jaipur Brightening Enzyme Mask from M.S. Skincare should be the very first one you should try if you’re new to it all.
It’s formulated with Vitamin C, glycolic acid, and lemon and orange peel extracts which means there’s nothing super unfamiliar in the ingredients. Plus, it smells good as hell, and who doesn’t love that?
