Two New Face Masks

I have developed the habit of trying out one face mask (masque) each week. My two new favorites are below. As always, know your skin and test out a little on your skin before doing the whole mask.

Baking Soda-Lemon Juice-Honey Mask

I found this mask at Style Craze. There are some great ideas on that website. This mask left my skin glowing and did not irritate. The three ingredients help to exfoliate, tone and moisturize all at once. Check out the link or look below to see my notes.

What You Need

  1. 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  2. 1 teaspoon Honey (creamed is best)
  3. 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice

What To Do

  1. Mix the three ingredients together. Wait for the fizz to die down and you will have a runny, yellow paste.
  2. Spread the paste on your clean face and neck. Avoid eyes and any other sensitive areas. Lightly rub the mixture into your skin for some nice exfoliating action. Don’t be too rough.
  3. Leave the mask on your face for 15 minutes.
  4. Wipe off with warm water.
  5. End the experience with a splash of cold water.

Notes: Use any left overs to exfoliate your hands and elbows. I have found these masks are best done before I take a shower in order to rinse off any residue that gets into my hair. Great for days when you use a coconut oil hair mask.

 

Honey-Lemon Juice-Olive Oil Mask

This is my own concoction. It is a great moisturizer, but I know olive oil can be too strong for some people. My skin is on the sensitive side due to rosacea, but this worked fine for me.

What You Need

  1. 1 teaspoon Honey (creamed works best)
  2. 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  3. 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice

What To Do

  1. Mix the three ingredients together.
  2. Spread on face and neck, avoid eyes and other sensitive areas.
  3. Leave on for 10 minutes.
  4. Rinse off and pat dry.
