DIY Natural Australian Pink Clay Mask

After doing some research on clays for masks I decided to try this. I did a test patch last night and my skin seemed fine so I made a fresh mask this morning and tried it! So easy and my skin feels amazingly soft and smooth and has a lovely glow! Pink Clay is the gentlest of clays and is great for sensitive skin. It helps shrink pores, softens detoxes, ands gently exfoliates skin. Rosehip oil had anti-aging benefits and helps moisturize and improve skin flexibility, and lavender essential oil is good for reducing redness and is anti-inflammatory! Honey is great for helping to unclog pores, is full of antioxidants and helps moisturize skin. At the end I posted a make up free selfie in natural light to show the effect the mask had on my skin.

Ingredients

2 tbsp water

1tsp organic creamed honey

1/2 tsp Organic Rosehip oil

2 drops Lavender essential oil

1 tbsp pink Australian Clay

Directions

1. Combine water and oils in a bowl

2. Slowly add water to the pink clay in a small bowl

3. Mix gently into a thin paste

4. Immediately paint onto a clean face and let dry 5-15 minutes. I used a face mask brush because it’s cleaner and more fun!

5. Rinse off gently with a warm facecloth

I recommend not using any moisturizer afterwards. I waited a few hours and applied a light moisturizer! This mask would be best before going to bed but I couldn’t wait!

As always, do a skin patch test before using

DIY Coffee Oil

Hi, a few weeks ago I shared the first part of making coffee oil. After a few weeks it’s done! I plan on using this to make my coffee eye balms. Coffee oil is known to help fight wrinkles and helps to reduce dark circles under eyes. I’ve been using my eye balm for about 2 months and noticed a huge difference! For this recipe I used organic olive oil, jojoba oil and organic fair trade dark roast coffee beans!

Directions

1.After grinding the beans and adding to oil I put my jars in a sunny spot and gave them a gentle shake every morning.

2.After three weeks it was ready! Here I first used a small strainer to strain the bigger chunks of the coffee beans into a jar

3.Next I strained the oil through cheesecloth to get rid of the tiny coffee chunks

4.I am storing the coffee oil in a cool, dry spot until I’m ready to use!

This was really very easy to do! Try it!
