Nine masks that take the DIY out of food-based beauty.

ELLE (Canada) - - Beauty -

If you pri­mar­ily use your kitchen as a place to store uten­sils for your UberEats de­liv­er­ies, it’s un­likely you’re the type to whip up home­made beauty prod­ucts. These fruit- and veg­etable-based face masks will add more nu­tri­tion to your life (if not to your diet). When Lev Glaz­man, co-founder of Fresh Beauty, set out to make a brightening face mask, he used food-grade-level cit­rus fruits that con­tain pow­er­ful nat­u­ral al­phahy­droxy acids (AHAs) to make up half of the in­gre­di­ent list. Nat­u­rally sourced in­gre­di­ents can also be an­tibac­te­rial (honey), anti-in­flam­ma­tory (blue­berry ex­tract) and even firm­ing (green ba­nana and thyme). No time to mask, you say? Take your cue from Glaz­man, who says he masks while do­ing al­most any­thing: “I drink tea, I watch TV,” he says. “My daugh­ters and I love watch­ing reruns of Sex and the City.” Count us in.
