I recently started trying out a Dutch vegan care brand named Abloom. When I was trying out one of their products, I remembered an exciting incident a few years ago when I made my DIY face masks. Four years ago, Indian actress Priyanka Chopra shared her daily care routine in an interview, and one of them was a DIY face mask that inspired me to add green elements to my DIY masks.

In the video, Priyanka mixed turmeric powder, yogurt, and honey to make a mask. Immediately after, I followed the same pattern and made a maintenance face mask based on Priyanka’s routine. I had the mask on for about 15-20 minutes before washing it off. Interestingly enough, a layer of turmeric powder was still left on my face!

There is Much to Pay Attention to When It Comes to DIY Masks!
Why did this short story come to mind? The truth is, Abloom's powder mask series can also be DIYed with honey, yogurt, and even miracle oil.

The multi-purpose green face masks we are trying out contain green tea powder, rich in antioxidant ingredients, and work well on anti-aging.

Maintenance, A Day-To-Day Endeavor
Coming up next is abloom's eye cream. For me, maintenance is a day-to-day endeavor, and therefore I take my eye cream choices seriously.

My eyes are very sensitive, and any amount of stimulating active ingredient can and will irritate my eyes. The current eye cream I am using is perfect for my sensitive eyes as the texture and taste of the eye cream are very smooth and comforting. This eye cream contains 39 organic plant extracts, which is why I can safely apply it on more delicate areas like the skin around my eyes.

The Secrets of Miracle Oil, Apply to The Whole Body
Another product that I rely on the most is Miracle Oil. This oil contains more than 20 organic flowers and fruits and the virgin extract of plants rich in vitamins for the human skin. Turmeric is also one of the main ingredients of this product. The secret is that one can apply the oil on the ends of the hair or dry areas of the body. Its light, woody fragrance suits well with any gender. During the winter, you can add a drop or two to make the base makeup smoother and shinier.

With vegetarian diets slowly becoming a trend in modern-day life, you may want to try vegetarian skincare maintenance, as you might find a whole new world doing so.
