Its true the secret is out and it feels freshly cool. Heres our top tip for DIY anti-inflammatory face wraps that everyone should be doing!
HOW TO WRAP
You Will Need:
6 tsp fresh mint leaves
½ liter water
A squeeze of grapefruit if you fancy
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Treatment Time: 10-15 minutes
Boil the mint leaves in half a litre of water for about 20 minutes.
Allow the water to cool and then strain it. Soak a washcloth in the cooled water mix. Sit back & place the cloth over you face & neck, leaving it on for about 2-3 minutes & repeat the process 4-5 times.
How Often: 1-2 times a day.
Why This Works:
Mint is cram packed with menthol, which has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce itching and other types of skin aggravation, plus it is also a great source of rosmarinic, which is a natural acid that treats rashes.
Grapefruit is packed with anti-oxidants and vitamins too that are great for the skin.
