Everyone loves a good DIY project here and there. Coincidentally everyone also loves a good face mask. So what better than to combine the two and make your own face mask!
I love a DIY face mask. You know exactly whats going into the mask, exactly what does and doesn’t work for you and its fun! It’s something you can do alone or with friends. Something you can make as a gift or for a treat for yourself. In this post, I’m going to share with you my favourite recipes for DIY face masks.
Olive Oil and Honey Face Mask
This is something that my Nonna has been doing ever since she was little. Its 1/2 cup olive oil to 1/4 cup honey. It’s better to warm the honey and the oil together slowly over a double boiler to allow the two ingredients to combine without burning. This mask is great for moisturising your skin. You can leave it on for 20 minutes to overnight, but I do have to warn you if you leave it on overnight it does get VERY messy. plus oil stains.
Rose Clay Face Mask
Now, this one is one that I found on Pinterest and I just love it! (The link is here too the original recipe https://goo.gl/XcJ8pE )
What You’ll Need:
Four Short 8 oz. Bail Jars
Rose Clay Face Mask Template – Free PDF
21.4 oz. Distilled Water
1 oz. Rose Clay
3.5 oz. Kaolin Clay
1 oz. Rosehip Seed Oil
1.3 oz. Avocado Oil
0.8 oz. BTMS-50 Conditioning Emulsifier
1 oz. Polawax Emulsifying Wax
0.5 oz. Chamomile Extract
0.2 oz. Optiphen (preservative)
1 mL Rose Absolute
Now, this mask does take some time and a few ingredients but the pay off is amazing! It helps with dry damaged skin. I recommend going to the website for the full instructions on how to make it but it is definitely one you need to try!
My work friend has the nicest skin I’ve ever seen. Her skin is always so fresh and flawless to the point it makes me so jealous! Her secret? Tumeric! She uses a Tumeric and lemon mask every second day to brighten her complexion and prevent acne. Its one part turmeric to two parts lemon juice. Its recommended to do this at night since lemon juice on skin and sunlight are a bad combination!
I really enjoyed working on this mini web series about face masks. I hope that I provided valuable info to you guys or taught you something new! If you liked this mini-series please let me know as I will do more of them in the future!
I have many more exciting projects coming up throughout the year but for now, it’s back to business as usual!
That’s all from me.
Until next time my lovely xxx
