Getting juicy with some of our favorite cold-pressed Fresh Mask mixers!
Juices are a great way to deliver fresh, raw nutrients straight to your skin. Fruits and veggies are loaded with so many skin benefits, it'd be a shame not to splash a little on your face if you're already getting your drink on. You can use juices as a treatment by just wiping a little on with a clean cotton or cloth, leave for 10 minutes, then rinse clean OR use them as a mixer with any of our Fresh Masks (also made with fruits and vegetables) for a surface cleaning, blemish-fighting, nutrient-packed fresh face mask.
With benefits like helping encourage collagen production, fight UV damage, even skin tone, clear acne, and slow down signs of aging, we've got 5 suggestions for your juicy pleasure. These juices are great if you can find them, or take a look at their ingredients to make your own or find a suitable alternative.
