I’ve been breaking out lately and can’t really afford to buy any of Lush’s wonderful face masks so I decided to scour my cabinets for what I do have that can help. Sometimes it pays to know your ingredients!
I mixed together:
Two tablespoons of honey. (Lots of antioxidants to clear up acne, brightens, moisturizes…it does everything! I used natural clover honey.)
A splash of green tea. (Mine had jasmine in it, a little sexy boost! Green tea has antioxidants that will brighten your skin and clear up your acne, and you can drink the leftover tea.)
Some grated potato. (Lightens skin and fades scars/blemishes.)
Quite a few spoonfuls of baking soda. (Lifts impurities. Use enough to make the mask viscous.)
An egg white or two. (Nature’s renewal agent.)
A couple spoonfuls of sugar. (For exfoliation!)
A few drops of lavender and rose essential oils. (For scent and calming the skin.)
I applied a few layers of this, left it on for a while, and then rinsed it off in the shower, spritzed some of my homemade rose water toner on my face, and then moisturized.
Here’s hoping it works for you guys!
