Green Clay Mask Recipe Clean, Sanitize, and Organize

Before beginning to create your refreshing facial mask, make sure you are properly prepared for the process. First, your equipment should be cleaned and ready to use. Make sure that your bowls, pot, and spoons are clean and out on the counter. Also, make sure your counter top and stove have enough room for you to work. While this step may seem to be too simple to need mentioning, it is a very important step in this process and can make the experience infinitely more enjoyable. So, just take a few moments to clean and organize your work-space and equipment.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Things to Remember

Before starting you should know that this recipe will make enough for a single facial. If you are making this recipe for yourself, then following the recipe exactly will be perfect. However, if you are creating facials for something like a girl’s night, then you may want to plan ahead a bit. Depending on how many people you have you could maybe have each person create their own, and just share the steeped peppermint tea. On the other hand, you could try doubling the batch as you go. Either way, make sure that you are aware of how much that you are going to need.

Another thing to keep in mind is the shelf life of this recipe. We recommend that you use this recipe as soon as you create it, but you can store your facial for later use. If you want to create your facials in advance, then make sure to avoid storing for more than one week. Also, you must store this recipe in the refrigerator to prevent spoiling. As there is no preservative added, it is not a good idea to store for longer or leave out for too long. For storing you could use the 12-ounce jar that is included in the kit.  Alternatively, if you would like to extend the life of your facial mask, you can choose to add Optiphen preservative.  If you decide to go this route, we recommend a 1% usage rate.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Begin Boiling the Water

Green Clay Mask Recipe Begin Boiling the WaterBefore starting you may want to set a pot of water on the stove to boil. While you could do this in a later step, it may quicken the process a bit if you start boiling your water before you begin with the steps for this recipe. Waiting for the water to boil will lengthen the time you spend on the tea steeping step, so starting it before you begin could be a real-time saver. Now, let’s get started!

Green Clay Mask Recipe Weigh the Powders and Herb

Green Clay Mask Recipe Weigh the Powders and HerbFirst, we are going to combine the French Green Clay Powder and the Peppermint Leaf Powder into a small bowl. Take your scale, place the bowl on top, and tare out the weight of the bowl on the scale. Now, weigh 24 grams of the French Green Clay Powder and 2 grams of the Peppermint Leaf Powder into the same small bowl. Mix these two powders together and set the bowl aside for later.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Weigh the Powders and Herb

Second, you will want to weigh the Peppermint Leaf cut and sifted herb for later use. Take a new bowl and tare out your scale. Now, weight 2 grams of this herb into the bowl. We will be using this weighed herb in the following step.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Steeping the Peppermint Leaf

Green Clay Mask Recipe Steeping the Peppermint LeafNow, it’s time for you to create the peppermint leaf tea. Take the 2 grams of Peppermint Leaf cut and sifted that you have already weighed. Now, scoop all of this herb into one of the provided tea bags. Once your water is boiling you are going to place your tea bag in the boiling hot water. While you can put the tea bag directly into the pot, I transferred some of the water to another small bowl and allowed my tea bag to steep there. I did this to prevent the tea from being too diluted and to make it easier to transfer later. Once your teabag has steeped for long enough, you can move on to the next step.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Weighing the Liquid Ingredients

Green Clay Mask Recipe Weighing the Liquid IngredientsNext, you are going to combine the freshly steeped peppermint tea and the vegetable glycerin into a single, small bowl. Take your scale and tare the weight of a small bowl. Now, weigh 18 grams of the peppermint tea and 6 grams of the vegetable glycerin into the same, small bowl. Mix these together well, so you can pour this mixture in a later step.

Green Clay Mask Recipe Combining Powder and Liquid Ingredients

Green Clay Mask Recipe Combining Powder and Liquid IngredientsFinally, you are going to mix the powder mixture from the very first step with the liquid ingredients from the previous step. Take the bowl of French Green Clay Powder and Peppermint Leaf Powder and pour the bowl of Peppermint Tea and Vegetable Glycerin on top of the powders. Now, mix this mixture together well. Your facial is finally ready to use!

Green Clay Mask Recipe Results

After trying out the Natures Garden Refreshing Facial Mask myself, I’ve fallen in love with this recipe! Not only does the mask smell of delicious peppermint, but made my face feel amazing. Before trying this recipe, I was a little skeptical about whether this would work for me. While I have some problem areas, such as my nose, that are overly oily, my cheeks have been dry from a combination of my face cleanser and the cold, windy weather. However, I was extremely impressed with this recipe! It worked wonderfully on my nose but still left my cheeks feeling smooth and soft. The thing that made this refreshing facial mask kit even more amazing was that I have enough left to create nine more masks! I may even try to get one of my friends to retry this recipe with me. Even though many of my friends aren’t super crafty, this recipe is one that is super easy and delightful to use when it’s finished!

Face Lifting Mask

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.
