If there was a spoon instead of a brush in the cup above, this might have looked like the remains of breakfast.
In fact, it's the remains of an easy peasy peeling mask.
Today, we're going to combine chemical exfoliation with flowers, dirt, and food to freshen, tone, and nourish the skin.
If you've been reading this blog for a while, you may have already made your own flowers, dirt, and food face wash with your fave ingredients.
If that's the case, you're pretty much ready to rock and roll!
But first, yay MaríaBut before we continue, I'd like to thank the lovely María Zamora for leaving a comment on this post about always having pre-mixed dried ingredients on hand for doing a face mask. Your comment was the inspiration for this whole post. Thank you!
- natural yoghurt
- mixed dried herbs, dirt, and food to suit your skin (links below to a few combos)
Pour up the amount of yoghurt you want to use and let it reach room temperature. Add mixture of dried flowers, dirt and food and stir until you have the desire consistency.
Apply to cleansed face (and neck) with brush, avoiding the eye area (I use a 'regular' natural bristle paint brush - nothing fancy)
Sit and enjoy for anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour - whatever you have time for.
If the mask starts to dry, remove it. If you've gotten the consistency right, the mask will not drip and will continue to stay moist.
I let this mask sit for a full hour and a half - just to see how long it would take for it to start drying (it took about an hour and a half).
Here's a shot of the mask after a full hour - still no sign of drying or cracking.
- rinse thoroughly and pat dry
- spritz your face with hydrosol skin mist (optional but fabulous)
- apply a few drops of face oil
