Revitalize You! – Skin Care DIY Part 2
Soothing & Softening Honey Mask (All Skin Types)
This mask can increase circulation, remove impurities/toxins, tone and tighten, act as an exfoliant, calm inflammation, and soften skin, depending on the ingredients.
Honey acts as a humectant that will draw moisture from the air to the skin to make the mask deeply soothing and hydrating to dry, sensitive and environment-damaged skin.
This mask only needs the simple ingredients below:
- tablespoon raw honey
- teaspoon finely ground sunflower seed meal
- teaspoon raw wheat germ
(One-time use; do not store)
Use a small whisk or spoon to combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Let the mixture set for a couple of minutes to thicken before applying to the skin.
How to use:
Use fingers to spread the mixture onto face and neck. Make sure to tie hair into ponytail and use a hairband to avoid stickiness to hairline. Then lie down with towel roll under neck. Relax for 30 minutes, then rinse off mask with warm, damp cloth. Follow with toner and moisturizer. Recommend use is once per week.
Light and Lively Moisturizer (All Skin Types)
In skin care, moisturizer plays an important part. When applying moisturizer, you are putting a barrier between skin and all age-accelerating environmental factors. Plus, moisturizer can keep your serum from drying out your skin.
This moisturizer is light and hydrating. It can be used anytime your skin needs to be refreshed or is feeling dry and tight. The ingredients are as below:
½ cup distilled or purified water
1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin
5 drops frankincense, grapefruit, lavender, or lemon essential oils
Combine all the ingredients in a small storage bottle and shake vigorously to blend. Label and date. No refrigeration is required but for maximum freshness, make sure to use within six months. Store in a dark, cool cabinet.
How to use:
Shake well before use. Apply with a cotton ball on cleaned and toned face and neck area. Allow to dry. You can spray this over makeup as well to add freshness. Use daily.
Remember- Relax, Regenerate, Revitalize..
