Did you know Halle Berry is sharing her health and fitness tips via her own app? The Oscar winner released her new endeavor, Re-Spin, a “digital health and wellness community” in April 2020, and has already revealed one of her major beauty secrets – a homemade skincare mask – on the Re-Spin Instagram page.
“No better time than now for a #SelfcareSunday,” wrote the actress. “Let’s Re-spin our skin y’all.”
Halle’s special DIY face mask consists of carefully selected ingredients that each serve a purpose. Green tea is for anti-aging properties, and is also known to fight sun damage and de-puff your skin; turmeric is a nourishing anti-inflammatory; lemon is for cleansing and brightening; and finally yogurt, which contains lactic acid for gentle exfoliation.
HALLE BERRY‘S SELF-CARE FACE MASK
- 2tbs brewed green tea
- 1 pinch of turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp of lemon juice
- 1/4 cup plain yogurt
- Mix ingredients together and stir vigorously until blended
- Apply mask to both face and neck
- Relax for three minutes
- Add a second layer of mask
- Relax for another 10 minutes
- Rinse with cold water
A special note on turmeric though – if you use too much, it can stain! However, any residue should come off easily with facial cleanser and water.
Halle, who developed Re-Spin because of her experiences with health and wellness as she lives with Type 1 diabetes, actually launched the app early to help her followers after the COVID-19 pandemic hit in spring 2020. “This time in the world is challenging for each of us in different ways. As we collectively re-align, I invite you to join the @respin community,” she announced. Referring to her life as a person with diabetes, she added: “Nutrition, fitness and wellness has since transformed my life – reconnecting my mind, body and soul – teaching me how truly valuable my body is.”
