Zizyphus Face Mask

Many products have multiple uses and Zizyphus Spina Christi is one of them. Its primary use is generally to help clean hair and skin. Since it can leave the skin feeling soft, I decided to try doing a zizyphus face mask.

Zizyphus is a desert plant that has saponins glycosides. The specific saponins of this plant leaf are what does the cleaning. Zizyphus also helps to protect the skin and hair from the effects of dry weather and intense sunlight by depositing a thin layer to hold in moisture.

I combined 1 teaspoon of zizyphus powder with about a teaspoon of distilled water. Next, I mixed the two together until it formed the consistency of pudding. Finally, I applied the paste to my freshly cleaned face avoiding my eyes, nose, and mouth. After about 15 minutes, I rinsed it off.

While the paste was on, I felt a slight tightening of the skin. It is perfectly normal, as that is just the mask working its magic. I have combination skin, and felt that this zizyphus face mask mainly cleaned and helped even my skin tone. After the mask, my skin also felt super soft. I definitely recommend giving this a try. However, if you are allergic to latex, be sure to patch test first!
