Gosh never thought I would be trying out a DIY face mask. I recently saw a friend of mine post about a face mask she made using good old school glue and I thought heck I can make that!! I love DIY recipes but had never tried a mask before, well now I won’t go back. I may try out other recipes and see what I like best but this one worked and I was so thrilled it also uses my favorite Young Living Essential Oils.
First thing first lets gather what you need:
- Flat Brush like a concealer or foundation brush or heck a flat pain brush will work too
- Activated Charcoal Capsules
- School White Liquid Glue
- Young Living Frankincense Essential Oil
- Young Living Manuka Essential Oil
Now to prep your face you want to soften up the plugs within he pores. The easiest ways are to wash your face in a nice hot/warm shower. If you don’t have time for that just be sure all traces of make-up are removed with a cleanser like Young Living ART Gentle Cleanser or Orange Blossom Facial Wash.
Using your flat brush mix 1 tablespoon of white liquid school glue with 3-4 capsules of activated charcoal in your bowl. Understand that the capsules can be messy, I had a hard time opening them but it worked. I just made a bit of a mess, nothing soap and water couldn’t clean up!
Next mix in 3-5 drops of Young Living Frankincense Essential Oil and 1-3 drops of Young Living Manuka Essential Oil.
Once fully mixed using your flat brush apply a thick layer of them mixture all over your face ensuring that you avoid any areas with hair. It you accidentally get it on any pieces of hair use a warm wash cloth to remove it. I had some of the mixture left over so you could probably easily do less then 1 tablespoon but you want to be sure you have enough too.
Allow 30-40 minutes to fully dry and then remove by by starting from the bottom and pulling up. This is thick and it sticks, it is a very strong mask. Got sensitive skin, it may be a good idea to try on a small section first, its strong.
Follow it up with some a toner like the Young Living ART Refreshing Toner and some Young Living Art Light moisturizer
