Valentine’s day has come and gone, but instead of throwing away that gorgeous bouquet after it has withered and wilted, why not show you skin some love as well? Rose petals are the perfect homemade skincare ingredient. So, if you’ve already got the flowers, make the best out of them and try out this DIY rose petal face mask.
All you really need are two more ingredients, a tiny chunk of your time, and you are good to go? Interested? Ingredients and instructions for the rose petal face mask follow below.
What You Need:
- A Handful of Rose Petals (Be sure to steer clear of the thorns!)
- 1 Tablespoon of Honey (Rule of thumb, just like chocolate, when it comes to choosing your honey, the darker, the better)
- 1 Tablespoon of Yogurt (preferably plain.)
What To Do:
Quick and easy, the first thing you need to do is gather up all the ingredients. Once you have everything ready, simply mix and mash together in a bowl, pestle and mortar if readily available, until you have a nice, thick-ish, pasted. And you are done. Voila, you post valentine skincare treat is ready. The next step is to apply your rose petal face mask.
Before anything else, make sure your face is clean. Whenever applying a face mask/pack, always wash your face and neck first as you normally would, then pat dry. Remember, always pat dry. A clean surface is a must if you want to get the most out of your face mask/pack.
To apply, simple spread the rose petal face mask evenly over your skin and neck in a gentle, circular motion. Massage it well into your skin and then let it sit for a good 15-20 minutes. This is the perfect time to clean up any mess you might have made or you can just simply kick off your shoes, put up your feet, and relax while waiting.
Rinse off completely with cold if not cool water and then pat dry. Again, always pat dry.
