Diy Collagen Boost Mask | Plump Your Skin
Naturally With Hibiscus.
Lately Iv'e been making this hibiscus face mask.
I find the longer Iv'e been discovering new ingredients there are some that I come back to because they work so well. Now I understand that everyones skin isn't like mine but this mask is just so good I've been itching to share it with you and if your unsure if it's the right ingredient for you I recommend doing a patch test first. So when it gets to the end of the week and I'm tired and my skin feels tired too, it feels drained and like it's lost it's va-va-voom! this hibiscus mask is the one I reach for, I only use it once a week because it's so potent.
The natural acids in Hibiscus help to purify your skin by breaking down dead cells without stripping your skin of it’s natural oils, unlike harsh synthetic acids, the natural acids from Hibiscus bring your skin back in balance for a glowing complexion. You can buy the hibiscus flowers I use here
First Blitz: Put 2 tsp. of hibiscus flowers in a coffee grinder and grind to a fine dust then add 1 tsp. of almonds or rice flour and blitz to a fine dust again.
Mix: Mix 2 tsp. of mix to 1-1/2 tsp. of warm water or brew some hibiscus tea from the same flowers and use it to mix to a paste.
MIX TIP: For an extra boost to firm and refresh the skin swap 1 tsp. of water for Witch Hazel
Apply: Apply the mask so that it's a thick layer, my skin is especially sensitive and I sometimes experience some sensation on the delicate skin under the eye, it doesn't last long but patch test if your unsure. Leave the mask on until it dries then rinse with warm water.
After this mask my skin feels firm and fuller/plump. The skin around my eyes feels lifted even though I don't apply any mix there. It's such a great weekend mask when there's more time and I hope you get to try it out.
