In the winter my face just tends to become drier than all the other seasons of the year! It must be from the dryness of the air. I have a great moisturizer that I use daily but really needed a little something extra to provide a deeper moisturization a few times a week. I came up with a really wonderful hydrating face mask. This DIY Hydrating Face Mask is very easy to make and it’s all natural which is one thing I really like to lean towards when purchasing and even making my own products. It is simple with only 4 ingredients. This face mask takes about 2 minutes of your time to whip up and can be stored in a jar for up to a few months.
DIY Hydrating Face Mask Tutorial
DIY Hydrating Face Mask Ingredients/Supplies Needed:
- mixing bowl
- jar with lid
- jojoba oil
- raw honey
- palmarosa essential oil and lavender essential oil
Directions For DIY Hydrating Face Mask:
Gather your supplies and head to your kitchen counter. First grab your bowl and your tablespoon. Measure out 2 tablespoons or your raw honey then one tablespoon of your jojoba oil. Mix these together with a fork or whisk for about a minute. They will not totally mix together and that’s ok.
Next, grab your essential oils. I use Young Living oils and can only speak to that brand of essential oils. Add 3 drops of Palmarosa essential oil and 3 drops of Lavender essential oil into your honey/jojoba oil mixture.
Give everything a good mix then transfer (you might need to use a spatula to get everything out of the bowl) your face mask into your jar! See, very easy to make and you will love using it!
I recommend using your Hydrating Face Mask 2-3 times a week. Start out with 2 times and then add a third day if you feel like your skin needs it. Leave on for about 10-15 minutes then gently wipe off with a warm cloth. The best thing about this face mask is that there is nothing in it that is harmful. The essential oils in this mask are both gentle and hydrating oils. They are used in many face products.
Here are a few benefits of the ingredients:
Honey- a humectant which attracts moisture to the skin. Honey also promotes healing and has natural anti-microbial properties.
Jojoba Oil- this oil is the closest oil to our natural sebum. Jojoba is a natural moisturizer.
Young Living Palmarosa Oil- It’s antiviral and a bactericide. Palmarosa oil relaxes muscles and heals cracked skin.
Young Living Lavender Oil- It has antimicrobial properties. It’s calming and soothing to the mind and also to the skin. Helps regulate over excretion of sebum and soothes dry skin. It also speeds up the healing process of minor cuts and scrapes.
