Double Duty Beauty: A Rejuvenating Mask Packed with Anti-Aging Properties You Need to DIY
October 9th, 2013
We’ve found it: The holy grail of all DIY facials.
Thanks to celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salon, Joanna Vargas, we no longer have to choose between a rejuvenating mask or one with anti-aging properties — instead, we can have both.
The skincare guru suggests an at-home concoction infused with grape seed oil, rose oil, honey and ground almonds.
“The grape seed oil is an awesome anti-oxidant, while the rose oil will restore that amazing glow we’re all looking for. The honey will hydrate the skin and erase fine lines while the ground almonds will gently exfoliate,” says Vargas. “Beyond anti-aging, this mask is for anyone who feels their skin looks dull and tired. It’s also great for anyone who has just stepped off of an airplane.”
Sound like something you could use? Here’s how to get the spa-like experience for yourself at home:
What you’ll need:
– 6 teaspoons grape seed oil
– 2 drops rose oil
– 1 teaspoon warmed honey
– 5 teaspoons ground almonds (This will help form a paste.)
– Combine all ingredients together in a small bowl. Mix well.
– Leave on the skin for 20 minutes, then rinse.
