9 food-based masks for the DIY averse

Food-based beauty products you don't have to make yourself. 

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 alpha-hydroxy 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.
