How to Make a Fresh Food Hand Mask
Have you ever heard of doing a mask for your hands?
I hadn't until I had to come up with some way of demonstrating face masks as part of this course I have been teaching this summer at Tisserand Institute.
Because I needed to be able to photograph everything (and recalled all the previous times I have tried taking photos of face masks on myself), I decided to apply each mask to one hand.
I was a little amazed when I removed the first one. The difference was immediately visible (insert amazement emoji). Not only was my hand lighter and fresher looking, I swear the wrinkly knuckle-area was softened and looked younger. My husband was immediately enlisted for a neutral, unbiased and (painfully) honest opinion. He saw it too and asked what I had done.
Guess who got busy developing a few masks for hands? And guess who decided to share one with you?
This is a fresh food mask that is meant to be made fresh and used immediately.
Are you ready to give hand masks a whirl? This is enough for a single application.
