Homemade Rose Face Mask For Normal and Combination Skin


Homemade Face Mask For Normal/Combination Skin


When it comes to skincare and pampering, a good facemask is essential! Although it probably seems a lot less hassle to pop to the shop and purchase the first facemask you see - it's so much better for your skin, and your wallet to make your own!

Making your own facemask doesn't have to be complicated, and it definitely wont be pricey! You'll be able to ensure all the ingredients are natural and you'll know every ingredient in it unlike store bought products.  Natural products can do absolute wonders for your skin, while detoxing and moisturising your skin, removing impurities and unclogging pores. What's not to love about that?

I've already shared my absolute favourite facemask for dry and sensitive (and sunburnt!) skin, but today I'm sharing my go-to homemade mask for normal or combination skin.

Homemade Rose Face Mask For Normal and Combination Skin

Natural Ingredients


Roses
Did you know that roses have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties? Roses have been used in skin care for years and they can help reduce redness and moisturise your skin too. 

Rose can calm and soothe your skin, as well as reduce redness - so it's a fantastic product for acne prone, or oily skin. It helps to clean away impurities and dirt, while locking the moisture into your skin to keep your skin soft and supple.

Roses are also full of vitamins, to protect and hydrate your skin and due to the gorgeous scent of rose, it can even help you relax and brighten your mood too! They are really amazing plants. 

Honey
Honey has a wonderful array of beneficial properties for your skin (it's a regular ingredient I use for homemade skincare products!). Honey is antibacterial, and anti-septic so it will really clean out your pores, remove dirt and bacteria and it can even treat acne. It's also moisturising and soothing - ideal for sore or dry skin. Plus Honey is full of antioxidants, so it'll help boost collagen production, nourish damaged skin and even fade scars!

Natural Yogurt
Natural yogurt has a huge range of skin care benefits too, many are similar to honey and rose but yogurt is best at soothing and cooling your skin. It'll help revitalise and hydrate your skin if it's feeling dry or sore. It's really just a huge moisturise boost for your skin - plus it can help fade blemishes and fine lines too. PLUS, it's antibacterial and anti fungal too. 

See, with all these fantastic ingredients, do you really want to go back to store bought facemasks?


How To Make Homemade Face Mask

This Rose face mask is really quick to put together. With just 4 ingredients, it'll only take about 10 minutes max. Plus, if you make a bigger batch, it can be popped into the fridge for up to a week!

You Will Need:
* 2 Tbs Natural Yogurt
* 2 Tbs Rosewater
* 3 Tbs Manuka or Raw Honey
* A handful of rose petals

The cheapest, most basic natural yogurt will work for this face mask! (Just ensure it's flavour free, it'll usually be about 50p) You can easily purchase natural rose water, or you could make your own even easier, pick a few rose petals from the garden and you're nearly there!

Lastly, you'll want to use Manuka or raw honey, as the basic, cheapest store bought honey's are usually overflowing with sugar - look for something a little more natural. HUGE bonus if you can purchase a jar of local honey. 

1. First things first, you'll want to wash the rose petals with cold water. Allow them to soak for a few minutes to wash off any bugs or dirt. While the rose petals are soaking, you can mix up the rosewater, honey and yogurt in a bowl.

2. Once the rose petals have finished soaking, you can crush or rip them up and add them to the mixture. 

3. Either using a pestle and mortar, or by popping it in the blender - combine all the ingredients well together. Using a blender does create a smoother face mask and therefore, easier to apply - but it's really up to you.

4. Using clean fingers, apply the mixture in gentle circular motion to your face, d├ęcolletage and neck. Be sure to avoid your eyes, nostrils and mouth.

5. Leave the mask to dry on your skin for about 15-20 minutes. You should feel the mask soaking into your skin, hydrating and tightening it almost immediately.

6. Rinse off the face mask using cool or warm water. I generally like to wash masks off with my hands and finish it off with a light scrub using a soft wash cloth.

7. Pat your skin dry and apply your normal moisturiser - and enjoy your radiant skin!
