Making Your Own Face Mask
So basically, we’ve got you, and your skin, covered.
Anti-aging face mask
Frankincense oil is known to reduce the appearance of age spots as well as sunspots, making it perfect if you want to even out the tone of your skin and keep it looking fresh. When used regularly it can strengthen the skin, improving its elasticity and fighting the signs of aging. Mix this with the deeply moisturising nature of aloe vera and you have the perfect face mask for mature skin.
- 2 tsp of maple syrup
- 1 tsp of aloe vera gel
- 2 drops of frankincense oil
Spot-busting face mask
If you’ve had a breakout, or have spot prone skin, you need tea tree oil in your life. Not only does its antibacterial nature stop spot causing bacteria before it can develop, but it helps to calm and heal spots that already exist. We like to pair this miracle oil with oats. They naturally help the skin to retain its moisture, combatting the drying effect that tea tree can have. Its anti-inflammatory properties also make it perfect for reducing the redness and swelling associated with acne.
- 1/2 cup of plain porridge oats
- 1 cup of water or milk
- 3 drops of tea tree oil
The ‘all rounder’ face mask
Lavender is one of those essential oils that we can’t imagine our lives without. It’s known for its ability to heal and regenerate the skin, making it an amazing addition to anyone’s skincare regime. It helps in the production of the body’s most powerful antioxidants and, as such, fights and prevents free radical damage. To help keep your skin in its best shape, we recommend mixing it with rose water which balances pH, cleanses and tones the skin.
- 1 tbsp rose water
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp plain yogurt
- 3 drops of lavender essential oil
