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.
DIY Detox Mask
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.
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)
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).
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.
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!
I finally have a video up on YouTube covering my current Daily Night Time Routine. I have also loaded the video up on my Blog here. Apart from the video I have a write-up of the “products” I use and how I use them under the Mai Skin Routine Section. For my routine I like to:
I have oily-sensitive skin and a lot of the store bought products I have used in the past have either done great to stop the oiliness but reeked havoc on my sensitive skin or I would end up with extremely dry skin, break out in rashes or spots. So in order to avoid all that I started researching and trying out natural products. My skin is loving the more natural approach! I am the kind of person who likes to have choices (at least two) so I recently picked up a new product Rose Water that I use as a toner and let me tell you… I LOVE it, my skin LOVES it and I am happy! I actually like using Rose Water a lot more compared to what I have been using Apple Cider Vinegar and Water. Rose Water carries with it a lot of nourishing and toning properties and it smell 100x better! I will have a write-up on the Rose Water soon.
I would love to know what your night time routine is for your skin!
