"Facial Mask"

Aloe Vera Spa Mask

     Why not bring "The Spa" to your home without spending expensive money on treatments.  Create your very own beauty remedies by utilizing the items that you may already have in your kitchen.  A great benefit - you will already know what exactly is in your mask.  Chemical, preservative, and artificial colorings free!

     What's in my mask?

Vitamin E, Raw Manuka Honey, Kelp, Organic Aloe Vera
and a splash of Coconut Milk

  • 1 capsule vitamin E or 1/2 teaspoon of pure vitamin E oil
  • 1 teaspoon of raw honey
  • 1 aloe vera leaf
  • 1 teaspoons of kelp powder
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut milk
Wash off your aloe vera leaf and slice open from the side of the leaf to remove the gel.  If using a vitamin E soft gel capsule, then take a toothpick and puncture a hole through it to let out the liquid.
Place all ingredients in a small bowl and mix.
Wipe down your facial steamer with alcohol before and after use.
Rinse face off with water after you steamed your face.
Pat dry your face.

Appliance:  (make sure you read your facial steamer directions carefully)

Facial Steamer

Add a few drops of lavender oil in the water of the steamer.

I received this sample of Lavender oil from one of the vendors at the Green Festival last year.  I figured I would put this healer oil to use by including it into my steam water.  Makes you relax. 

Apply the facial mask and let the spa serenity begin...
Natural healing takes it course...
Benefits of:
  • Vitamin E oil (pure) helps block free radicals from the body in which it plays a large part in the aging process.  Vitamin E has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  It protects skin from cell mutation in the sun and pollution.  Vitamin E oil will help repair and improve appearance of damage tissue.  (Caution if you have acne prone skin - limit the amount of the oil due to it can may you break out more)
  • Aloe Vera gel (pure) An excellent moisturizer.  Aloe vera gel has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties in which it helps fight off bacteria and inflammation.  No greasy residue feel - excellent for oily skin.  Aloe vera gel keeps skin hydrated and firm.
  • Kelp a seaweed that helps regulate thyroid glands, hair, and skin.  Kelp stifles the aging process.  The chlorophyll in kelp detoxifies the skin.  Kelp's other skin nourishing nutrients are omega 3 essential fatty acids, polyphenols, 16 amino acids, vitamin A, iodine, and niacin. Improves the body pH balance.
