DIY Aloe & Lavender Breakout Be GONE Face Mask

This DIY face mask recipe is one that every girl (or guy) needs up their sleeve! It’s totally a life saver. I mean not that there’s ever a good time for a zit, but sometime it’s just REALLY not a good time…

Another thing that I love about this mask is that the mess is extremely minimal. This baby is thin, goes on easily, rinses off easily and just gets the job DONE.

If your into essential oils fixing your LIFE – this book is a must!

Aloe Vera

Lavender Essential oil

Lemon

I could literally write whole post about how awesome aloe vera is (& I probably will) but right now the most important thing to know is that aloe contains two hormones that specifically target acne! Auxin & Gibberellins both have strong antioxidant properties that reduce skin inflammation. Gibberellins also stimulates new cell growth so your skin can heal quickly and seamlessly!

Lavender has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties that make it great for treating acne! Lavender is nourishing and soothing to your skin, it will decrease scarring and the appearance of dark spots. 

Also, know for its ability to relieve anxiety and stress, lavender will continue serving you and your skin past its topical benefits!

Lemon’s acidity can act as an antiseptic and kills bacteria. It also reduces redness and lightens the skin which makes it great at reducing any past acne scars you many have!

 Lemon does strips the skin of oils so be sure to follow this mask with toner and moisturize!

I am LOVING Shea Moisture’s Peace Rose Oil face moisturizer and Andalou naturals blossom toner

The recipe!

  • half a lemon
  • 1/4 cup aloe vera
  • 5 drops lavender essential oil 

Blend and apply to a clean face! 

Rinse off after 10 -15 minutes. Follow with toner and moisturize!

Hope you all enjoy this mask as much as I do! This recipe makes quite a bit so I always force literally everyone around me to participate. You could also store it in the fridge in a small mason jar or I mean you could  always make it a total body thing because why not! You totally deserve it!

Happy masking!
