How to: Fresh Strawberry Mask with Rose


It's strawberry season and even though these fabulous fruits are so tasty it's hard not to pop them all in the mouth, all you need is a single strawberry to create this refreshing and super easy hydrating face mask.

Surely you can refrain from eating ONE strawberry...

Good!

Then lets' get busy making this fresh food face mask!


Ingredients

  • 1 large fresh strawberry
  • Powdered rose (approx 1,5 teaspoon)
  • Kaolin clay (approx 1 teaspoon)
  • Raw honey (approx 1 teaspoon)

Method

Every ingredient in this mask is added 'to desired texture' so I have only written approximate amounts.

The ideal texture is neither runny nor too thick to stick to the skin. It should be easy to layer on. I've taken pics throughout the process so you can get an idea.



Mash the strawberry in a small cup


Add Powdered rose and stir thoroughly.

Sprinkle in kaolin a bit at a time until you have quite a thick mixture – a bit thicker than you would want to apply to your face.

Add approximately a teaspoon of raw honey and stir.


The final texture should look a bit like this.

There might be a few lumpy bits, but that's okay. If you got the texture right (which I know you will), it won't matter a bit.



To Apply


Remove make-up and cleanse your face.

Pat dry.

See that spoon you used to stir your mask? The back of it is the perfect applicator.
Remember to include the neck when applying a face mask.



Here's what this fresh mask looks like on a face (I used mine for demonstration purposes). This one survived walking around (lumpy bits and all) with no dripping or mess.

Remove the mask after about 15 minutes by splashing lots of water on the face and rinsing thoroughly.

Finish with a spritz of rose hydrosol for skin-hydrating perfection.

Enjoy.

I’m guessing this is only for personal use to be used in a short period of time? Is there any way to
Preserve it?

HI Felony Flowers - It is intended for personal and immediate use, yes. That said, it is not impossible to preserve, but would require quite a bit of R & D and lab testing.
