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.
- Aloe Vera – 1 Tablespoon
- Strawberry – Medium Size
- Honey – 1 Tablespoon
- Lime – 8 drops
- My Favorite Oils:
- Vitamin C – 1 capsule
- Retinol – 10 drops
- Tea Tree – 10 drops
Step by Step
- Using a fork smash the strawberry.
- Add all other ingredients one by one, while carefully mixing after adding each one.
- Store in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
- Before applying, add the list of “My Favorite Oils”.
- Apply to face
- Leave for 20 to 25 minutes
- Wash off mask
- 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.
