DIY Hibiscus Flower Face Mask
So why hibiscus you ask? Well as it turns out, hibiscus has some pretty awesome, kick-ass properties:
- Hibiscus is packed full of antioxidants and fights skin damage.
- Helps balance out skin by hydrating and controlling oil production at the same time.
- Exfoliates skin and also encourages collagen production.
- Contains anti-aging alpha hydroxy acids and amino acids which revives skin and makes it look younger.
- 1 tsp hibiscus flower powder
- 1 tsp lavender powder
- 2 tsp French green clay
- yogurt, water, or honey
- Mix all dry ingredients in a small bowl until well combined.
- Then, start by adding a small amount of either yogurt, water, or honey to mix powders and mix until a smooth paste forms.
- Yogurt is great for exfoliating and cleaning, while honey is antiseptic and antibacterial and works well for acne prone skin.
- Apply all over face and neck, making sure to avoid the eye area and leave on for 15-20 minutes or just until mask starts to dry.
- Remove with a soft, wet and warm towel and rinse off any leftover residue.
- Pat dry and follow up with a moisturizer.
- Repeat twice a week for oily/acne prone skin and once a week for normal skin.
Please note that the clay may leave your skin red right away, but this will go away in a few minutes!
