Hi guys, today I bring you a skin care  DIY, in  an attempt to get my skin ready for ball in a couple of weeks.  This tutorial should be pretty easy since it uses only a few simple ingredients that can be found in most kitchens.  Let’s get started!

Ingredients

1 tsp honey

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp brown sugar

juice from 1/4 of a lime/lemon or 1 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp coffee grounds ( optional)

a container to mix everything in

the ingredients

Step 1

First clean out a jar or other suitable container to mix everything in.  You can use an old jam jar or lotion jar but just make sure its been cleaned and sanitized well.  I like to wash the jar with soap and water and then wipe it with rubbing alcohol for good measure.

Step 2

Add all the dry ingredients to the container and mix them well, then pour the honey and lime juice over them and mix well.

Step 3

Put it on your face.  Depending on the consistency of your mixture you can apply this with clean fingers or a brush.  Gently massage the mask onto your face and let it sit for at least 15 minutes.

Step 4

Wash the mask off with warm water and then splash cold water on your face after to close the pores.

 

Tips& Tricks

  • do this twice a day, once in the morning and once before going to bed
  • Add activated charcoal for an even deeper cleanse
  • apply the mask after washing your face
  • use toner after using the mask
  • stir the mixture with your finger before applying, this tends to settle
  • if you don’t have lime or lemon, use apple cider vinegar
