One of my favorite skincare things to do is go to lush and buy their facemasks. I have mastered this minty mask pretty good and I change up the ingredients depending on how my skin is feeling.
Here is a list of the ingredients and their benefits for your beautiful face.
Oatmeal, ground -
Dried lavender flowers, ground-
Kaolin clay -
Honey, optional(omit if you want it to be vegan) -
Jojoba oil, optional for dry skin -
Tea tree essential oil (great for breakouts) -
Peppermint essential oil -
4 Applications/Keep refrigerated/ Use organic ingredients
1tbs lavender face wash/scrub (heaping Tbs)
1tsp jojoba oil
2 drops of tea tree essential oil
2 drops of peppermint essential oil
If needed add water to get the desired consistency.
If you don't have all the ingredients, make it anyway while adjusting the ingredients. Message me if you need help.
Place all ingredients into a small glass storage bowl and is together well.
If adding water add it by the drop to avoid making the mask too thin.
How to use: Do a small test patch on your neck below your earlobe to make sure you're not sensitive to the mask. Leave on 10 minutes to be sure. It's normal to feel a little tingling at first but it should dissipate.
Once you've done your test patch you can put the mask all over face avoiding the eye area. If you do get it in your eye rinse with tepid water.
Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes.
Remove the mask by using a washcloth soaked in warm water. It might take a few cycles of rinsing the washcloth and reapplying to your face before the mask is removed.
Moisturize if needed.
One of the most amazing benefits of this mask is that it's non-toxic! So much better for you and the environment. If your dog licks your face, non-worries, it's all good.
Look absolutely gorgeous!
