I don’t know how many of you use YouTube for beauty tips but I absolutely swear by it! One of my favourite vloggers is named ‘superprincessjo’, she has AMAZING videos of face masks, hair masks and many other beauty tricks and tips; all easily made at home and all organic!
This cocoa mask below is one of my favourites, and I’ve added this to my skincare routine:
Jo’s recipe can be found on the YouTube video above. I’ve tweaked this mask slightly for myself so feel free to use either method! My recipe is as follows:
– 2 tablespoons of gram/besan Indian flour (Has scrubbing properties which remove dead skincells, cleans blackheads and removes oil-iness from the skin. Jo also says that Besan flour helps soothe inflamed acne skin , lightening acne scars and marks , relieves itchy pimples and reduces dark marks and dark circles)
– 2 tablespoons of honey (Honey can be used as a great cleanser, soaking impurities and is a natural skin moisturiser)
– 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder (Cocoa has natural anti-aging abilities; reducing fine lines, tightens skin and reduces pores)
I eliminate the curd as I found it difficult to find in my local supermarket, and I found the mask worked just as well without! All of these ingredients can be found in any supermarket, and the flour can be found in either Indian food specialist shops or your any local supermarket which specialises in foreign ingredients 🙂 (For example I found this flour in the World Foods section of my local Tesco)
Mix all of the ingredients together and you should have a paste-like consistency (the picture below was enough to last me 2-3 days):
Smother all over your face so you can look as beautiful as this!
Wait around 20-30 minutes or until the mask is dry. In the picture above I’ve put on a bit too much around my T-zone, but it still works great! Wash off your mask and you’re done! I feel like my skin is so much softer; this is definitely down tot he scrubbing properties in the besan flour! I’ll never go back to buying store made face masks; natural and organic are far superior!!
What are your favourite organic face masks? 🙂
