You can find lots of things for your facial mask right in your fridge, but he most healthy masks come with these green herbs and vegetables that we eat. Parsley, dill, sorrel, green salad leaves, coriander, spinach and celery are healthy for your skin and for your body. These herbs are used for facial masks, for mixtures and teas that can be used externally on your skin.
