DIY Face Lifting Mask TipsDIY Face Lifting Mask Tips

Using a face lifting mask for a truly excellent face lift at home will help you cleanse your pores and refresh your skin in a wonderful way. It will take some work but you can really enjoy this after a long and relatively tiresome day. You will need to make use of a blender when you prepare the mask, but all in all it happens to be a fairly easy thing to make if you have the time and inclination. All you need to create your masterpiece are the following materials:

  • A ripe, peeled banana and half an apple should be placed inside your blender, as well as about a teaspoon worth of lemon juice as well and roughly four teaspoons of honey. Once you have this ready, blend it into a smooth mix and pour it into a bowl. You should add some boiled and cooled oatmeal into the mix to complete its transformation. You can use some of the mix to spread it on your face, but you will need to ensure you have the right level of thickness on it to completely ensure you can benefit from using it. You can cover the mix and leave it for later in your fridge to cool down.
  • Once you have that done, you will need to move on to the next step on your list,  properly cleaning your face and finishing the job of keeping your pores freshened up. You can do that by using a cloth soaked in some hot water. Squeeze it out and spread it over your face, allowing its moisture to open your pores, letting the mask do its job more effectively overall. Doing so will help you a great deal as you will notice after you’re done using it.
  • Once the previous step is complete, use a dry and soft cloth to pat you face dry, then spread the mask around your face using your fingers. Since your mixture will harden as it dries out, you should not massage too hard. Do so just enough to ensure the exfoliation of your skin, allowing the mask to clean your face more effectively. The mask will need to stay on your face for the next twenty minutes if you want to easily move on to your next step.
  • Rinsing the mask when you’re done with some lukewarm water should allow you to almost finish the job. You can also use cold water, ice cubes and something similar that happens to be cold to close your pores when you’re done. Pat your face dry and you will deal with this last step.
  • You may also decide to use some toner after you’re done with your face mask, as it will help you remove the residue left after you’re done with it. You will need to restore the pH balance of your skin, so use some cotton balls and apply it to your face to avoid it drying out in the end. Once all of this is complete you can focus on kitchen cleaning and floor cleaning if you managed to spill some of the mask on the floor by accident.

Creative Outlet Earning Extra Income

This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, bath salts, body butter, candle making supplies, cosmetic supplies, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Lori Barrow, Windsor Hills Wicks & Lather

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I’m a stay-at-home mom and needed an outlet for my creativity that would earn extra income. I was working on the lines that I would carry for a candle and soap business when our daughter got sick in 2010.  At that time, I started taking a closer look at the products that I was bringing into my home. Thankfully, her illness wasn’t as severe as originally diagnosed and I opened my Etsy based business in 2011.  I’ve always loved candles, so I set out to start making stylish, high-quality candles that my friends and I would like and use.

 3.  What products do you make and sell?  My main product line includes my crafty soy candles (canning jar containers with decorative handcrafted covers), wax melts, wax luminaries, body butter, spa salts & nail polish. I rotate out other products such as incense, burlap wall art, glass luminaries, facial masks, smelly jellies, salves and children’s bubble bath.

 4.  What are your business goals?  I would like to grow my business from a home business to having a store front in our historic downtown that showcases locally made candles, soaps and crafts. We have a lot of insanely talented artisans in my area and I would love to own a shop that showcases them all, and offer the occasional class in crafting. I would also like to own a small manufacturing facility so that I could take on larger orders that I have had to previously turn down.  Every candle that I create is an investment in not only my future; it’s an investment in the future of my family and this town that I grew up in and think of so dearly. It might be a struggle to achieve my dream, but I’m in this for the long haul and I can’t wait until all of my friends and everyone in this town try my custom container candles.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  My favorite products from Nature’s Garden are the fragrance oils and essential oils. Egyptian Dragon is heavenly, it is my best seller! Vanilla Spectacular is one of my favorite scents. People who normally don’t care for vanilla love Vanilla Spectacular! Another of my favorites is “Cashmere & Silk,” because it is an incredible scent! The essential oils that I have bought from Nature’s Garden have been great, I really love the patchouli essential oil and tea tree essential oil.  In addition to the fragrance and essential oils, I love the variety of herbs and spices that you carry! Many of the body recipes that I make require the use of powdered herbs or spices and they are very expensive to buy locally. I’m very thankful that you carry the herbs and spices that I need. Your incense supplies are phenomenal!

fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Ashley Wallis, owner of Aqua Blossom

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?   When my boys were babies, I started making baby bath products for them because I wanted something more natural than what I was seeing in stores. I soon began making body scrubs and other products, researching ingredients, and experimenting with formulas. My family and friends encouraged me to begin selling the products, and that’s how Aqua Blossom was born!

3.  What products do you make and sell?  I make lip balm, body butter, body scrubs, facial masks, soaps, and other spa products.

4.  What are your business goals?   My number one goal is always to provide spa quality products and excellent customer service! My current business goals are to attend a market or craft show this holiday season, expand my line of facial products, design several new soaps, and give my website a face lift.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?   I love Nature’s Garden lip balm flavor oils, including Buttercream Cupcake, Guava, and Horchatta. I also love the herbs and botanicals including dried lavender buds, rosemary, juniper berries, spearmint, and chamomile.
