How To: Soothing Lavender Face Mask
These freezing cold days are really having an effect on our skin. It’s important to protect your face from the harsh weather so as well moisturising, you should be wearing a high factor during the day – Cliniques Super City Block SPF 40 is perfect for every day as it’s light weight and non oily.
We went on the hunt for a nourishing and moisturising cream for some extra protection from the cold and came across this homemade lavender mask from Clones N Clowns. Give it a go and let us know if it works for you!
‘In this recipe, you can either use dried lavender (pick it and leave it to dry a couple of days in the sun) or lavender essential oil. Either way, you want to make sure you only put a few drops / flowers in the mask. This quantity is perfect for an appeasing, regenerating face mask. I love it ! The yoghurt is not only a base in this recipe, it also works as a hydrating agent too. The honey, as you may know, soothes the skin in depth and kills any yucky bacteria. Try to use organic if you can!
To make this homemade lavender mask :
Mix 2 tbs plain yoghurt (use greek style for the ideal consistency), 1 tsp of honey and a few drops of lavender oil OR 1/3 tsp dried lavender flowers. Smooth it over your face, neck and bust and leave it on for approx. 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water and apply moisturiser as usual.
