DIY Detox Mask (for the Skin)

Hello Maicurlies,

I have been busy trying to record videos back to back because I will be out of the country in 2 weeks (on holidayaaayyyy) so please forgive my delays. 

Today I am going to be sharing a new Skin DIY! And yes, the title of the post gives it away, it will be a face mask that helps to detoxify the skin.

Benefits

  • Brightens the skin (NOT LIGHTENS but brightens).
  • Leaves you with a youthful glowy finish.
  • Helps reduce redness.
  • Soothes the skin.
  • Helps to remove toxins in the skin.
  • Helps to remove dead skin cells.
  • Closes the pores. 
  • Leaves your face smooth and soft.

Ingredients/Tools used

Ingredients Used

  • 0.8oz Amla Powder
  • 1.4oz Water (I use plain bottled water)
  • 0.5oz Rose Water
  • 0.4oz Natural/Raw Honey
  • Squeeze of Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 3 Capsules Vitamin E Oil (roughly 0.15oz)
  • (Optional) Essential Oil 
  • Clean and disinfected Bowl
  • Clean and disinfected spoon
  • Gloves (optional to keep things sanitized)

Mixing

I add both the water and rose water a little at a time to the amla powder while continuously stirring. I then add the honey, lemon juice and Vitamin E Oil (Essential Oil if using). 

Ingredient/Ratio Alternatives 

  • Should you not have access to rose water, you can just replace it with plain water. 
  • Natural/Raw Honey can be replaced with Agave Nectar or even Molasses.

Application

I like to apply the mask onto makeup free skin that is slightly damp. I use my fingers to apply the mask AVOIDING THE EYE & EYEBROW AREA! Let the mask dry for 15 – 25 minutes, splash lukewarm water on my face and slowly wipe away the mask using a damp face cloth. I follow up with my toner & moisturizer. NOTE: as the mask dries it will start to tighten the skin, this is normal. 

If you use this mask please let me know what you think!

Thanks!
