Homemade Face and Hair Masks , Why Bother?

Updated on January 12, 2012

If the skin masks use foods we eat why bother with their preparation, applying to the skin and then cleaning them off. If it is their content of nutrients, vitamins and phytochemicals, then we ingest them and they are already distributed to every part of our bodies including the skin.

The reason why skin masks are important to our skin can be concluded after the discussion of the following facts, concerning the nature and location of the skin:

- The outermost layers of the skin are dead cells that are subject to physical treatments like removing hair and scrubbing the skin. These means can be substituted with skin masks.
- Nutrients, Vitamins, and phyto-chemicals are distributed to every inch of the skin in minute amounts, and we may need to apply far larger amounts to a certain area of the skin through skin masks.
- Some ingredients are more safe when applied to the skin, than if they are ingested
- Some unwanted effects are caused by environmental aggression, and some skin masks defend the skin against that aggression
- Skin masks let you involve planned complementary ingredients than may not be supplied by foods
- Some ingredients of skin masks should come in direct contact with the skin like in, moisturizing or exfoliation
- Most hair treatments should be local like, hair split ends or dandruff treatment

You may think that there are easy to use products that consider all the discussed topics, nevertheless you should bear in mind that skin masks have the following advantages over the manufactured products:

- They cost next to nothing. 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 tablespoon of milk make your skin mask. Others are made from fruits and vegetables in your fridge.
