Fantastic Flax Skincare

Young people with problem skin will find this to be much more helpful than relying on harsh chemical compounds. This mask stimulates the circulation and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.

Flax seeds can be helpful in skin cleansing programs and are especially effective in normalizing oily, dry or blemished skin. Young people with problem skin will find this to be much more helpful than relying on harsh chemical compounds. This mask stimulates the circulation and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. To make the mildly abrasive skin cleanser, mix equal parts of freshly ground flax seeds and wheat bran, take two tablespoons (30 mL) of the mixture and stir in enough hot water to make a paste.

  1. Moisten your face with water, then gently massage the mix on your skin with a circular motion.

  2. Leave the mask on for five to 10 minutes. During this time the ground flax seeds will lubricate your skin and provide it with essential fatty acids, which can help to relieve dryness.

  3. Rinse your face with water. This is a safe and gentle procedure that can be used every day in place of soap. It can even be used as a body scrub.
