‘Eco-Fixers’ is an Eco-Spotlight series where we will bring to you everyday DIYs towards sustainability. From making your own fertilizer to recycling better, with these simple hacks, we’ve got you covered. 

 Our friends at Boss Lady Cosmetics have given us quick DIYs facemask recipes using basic ingredients to help with the unique skin-related issues we face, whether it is the acne breakouts caused due to the wearing of the face masks, blemishes or simply wanting to hydrate and rejuvenate after a busy day.

But before we go ahead, we’d like to point out that these are all extremely normal issues. Hormones, our diets, stress levels and many, many other factors are related to these issues. This Eco-Fixer is just an attempt to help your skin feel better and healthier. So without further ado, here are some solutions that are cheaper than buying plastic-laden store cosmetics, as well as chemical-free and fully vegan. You only need a couple of ingredients and 10 minutes, so let’s get started. 

For acne (related to the wearing of pandemic facemasks or otherwise):
2 tablespoons of Aloe Vera gel
1/2 teaspoons of turmeric powder
A few drops of tree tree oil (optional)

The next step:
Mix the Aloe Vera gel & turmeric powder. Apply the mix on your face and let it dry for 20 minutes. You can also add tea tree oil if available. Aloe Vera soothes, nourishes and hydrates the skin, while turmeric helps with the recovery of the skin rapidly and naturally.

For marks and blemishes:
1 tablespoon Aloe Vera gel 
1 tablespoon rose water

The next step: 
Add both the ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Apply and leave it on for 8-10 minutes. The rose water maintains the skin’s pH balance and the Aloe Vera gel nourishes the skin helping it become healthier

For nourishment:
1/4 tablespoon turmeric
1 ripe banana.

The next step: 
Mix and mash both the ingredients together in a bowl. Leave for 5-8 minutes. The Vitamin A in a banana cleanses your pores and the antioxidants in turmeric give you a supple, healthy glow.
