I admit this organic face mask doesn’t look pretty … but it did taste fine
My skin has been feeling a little neglected this last month and so I decided to treat myself to a home made edible face mask.
After ten minutes steaming my face with hot water with a splash of lemon juice, I prepared this home treatment from a popular Ayurvedic blend of only four edible ingredients;
1 tablespoon organic lemon juice
1 teaspoon rose water
1/2 teaspoon organic honey
2 tablespoon organic oatmeal
These ingredients are used for their healing and anti bacterial properties – especially good if your skin is feeling oily, and/or you have a breakout. I had both!
There is more than enough in this mix to cover your face and decolletage, but don’t make any more unless you’re preparing it for more than one person, because it should be used fresh.
It’s quite runny, so make sure you apply it somewhere than can be easily cleaned if spilled – I had lumps of lemony porridge stuck on my mirror afterwards…
Apply, then lie back and relax for ten to fifteen minutes before washing gently off (the porridge will have hardened into a soft crust) with room temperature water, before patting gently dry then adding your moisturiser of choice.
Afterwards my skin felt super-clean, enlivened, refreshed and grateful for some beautiful healthy organic nourishment.
