It has been close to a month since our household has welcomed kefir, which is a natural probiotic that has practically endless benefits to our health. The most natural offshoot of doing the everyday kefir smoothie, is my learning to do the facial kefir mask and the kefir make-up remover.
Although my welcoming this kefir make-up remover did not exactly leave my favorite Clinique Take the Day off make up cleanser stashed away in my dresser drawer, it is still a great natural alternative I turn to every so often. The kefir make up remover recipe is pretty simple. All you need is a teaspoon of almond oil and 2 tbsps. of milk kefir and that’s it. Mix them together. Dip the cotton into the concoction, then cleanse your skin away naturally.
As for mask, what I usually do is simply apply whatever is left off the sides of the glass where I strained the milk kefir. More often than not, it is more than enough to treat my whole face. It has a tightening and moisturizing effect that leaves my skin refreshed. I leave the mask on my face for around 15 minutes. It was just neat that my everyday consumption of kefir does not just beat the best diet supplements I have tried in the past, I could also make use of it as a practical facial regimen that I need not spend for on a daily basis. 🙂
