The Better of the TWO TOGETHER

So far you will find two blogs with my face mask recipes. Throughout time I have changed them around and improved them, or so I think. I usually look for inspiration online, and I adjust them depending on what I have, or have read to be good for the skin. As I have said, I am always looking to improve and tweak my receipts for the better. For this post I went ahead and took the best from the past two masks. Continue reading to see what I came up with.

Ingredients

  1. Aloe Vera – 1 Tablespoon
  2. Strawberry – Medium Size
  3. Honey – 1 Tablespoon
  4. Lime – 8 drops
  5. My Favorite Oils:
    1. Vitamin C – 1 capsule
    2. Retinol – 10 drops
    3. Tea Tree – 10 drops

Step by Step

  1. Using a fork smash the strawberry.
  2. Add all other ingredients one by one, while carefully mixing after adding each one.
  3. Store in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Before applying, add the list of “My Favorite Oils”.
  5. Apply to face
  6. Leave for 20 to 25 minutes
  7. Wash off mask
  8. Apply moisturizer and/or your favorite oils or face cream.

For this face mask, I didn’t only take the best of my other tow, I also came up with a couple tips. If you recall, I had expressed my concern with the mask running down my face and the chunks of strawberry, especially, giving me a hard time. To solve both concerns I applied the face mask with a gauze. I soaked the gauze in the mask, naturally it picks up some of the chunks, and that is fine.

Now to give you a sneak peak of my next post, let me tell you that this mask not only felt great, but tasted delicious. I made some strawberry jelly, that I think will replace my store bought jelly. Could you guess what ingredients I definitely kept. List them in the comments, we will see if you where right.
