Facial Mask With Essential Oils and other goodies!
Weekend is coming up, perhaps you will find a few minutes for yourself to kick back and relax with a face mask J
Facial masks can be a very cleansing, nourishing and revitalizing experience. They promote elimination of waste material and stimulate local blood circulation while providing essential vitamins and minerals to your skin. They can be soothing and moisturizing, disinfecting and drawing depending on what ingredients you put in your mask.
Basic ingredients for mask are clays, oatmeal, fruit or vegetable pulp, floral waters, essential oils, carrier oils.
Here is the breakdown:
Put in one bowl few teaspoons of clay (I like rhassoul – great for all skin types), soaked oatmeal, pulp with some juice, carrier oil and five to 12 drops of essential oils. Stir it all together and then add floral water until right consistency is achieved. Apply to your face with your fingertips and let mask dry for up to 15 minutes and then gently remove with a water and cloth or sponge.. Follow with the floral water to tone the skin, or vinegar/water mix. Masks are recommended about once a week.
Here are recommendations for water and other materials for different skin types:
