Do you long to shine bright like the diamond you are but have been held back by your peasant-like budget?! 🙃
I have the perfect solution for you: The Wild Alchemist’s Strawberry-Orange Creamsicle Face Mask
The combination of a fresh strawberry, honey and orange essential oil in this facial mask gives it a delightful fruity smell, while it’s skin brightening and anti-aging effects will make your skin appear more glowy&youthful. In other words: you’ll shine bright like a diamond, Queen! 😉
1 fresh strawberry (organic is best)
1/4 tsp organic, unpasteurized honey
1 tbsp clay (organic, cosmetic grade)
3 drops orange essential oil
All varieties of clay would work well in this mask but I have a preference for french green clay because of it’s anti-aging qualities and mineral content. But for the purpose of this blog post and because it is the most widely available clay I have used bentonite from Now Solutions.
In order to get the most out of this mask you should exfoliate your skin prior to applying it and follow it up with a good (but light) moisturizer; use twice weekly.
Remove stem and mash strawberry with fork in small bowl (ensure as little fibrous tissue is left as possible)
It should look something like this:
Mix well with wooden spoon (using metal can deactivate the clay and lessen it’s effectiveness)
Add essential oil, mix well
Add honey, mix well (at this time you should have a paste that will spread easily onto your face)
Your finished product should look similar to this:
Apply mixture to face and leave on until dry (about 20 minutes)
Rinse using warm water and face cloth
Peer into mirror and admire glowy skin 😉
*ProTip To maximize the pore penetration when wearing this mask fill your bathroom sink or a lrg bowl with scalding hot water, rest your head above the bowl/sink and place a towel over your head. The steam will open your pores and allow the mixture to sink deep into them; pulling out any oils your sebaceous glands may have produced or unwanted dirt&grime.
