Making your own reusable sheet mask at home is simple and a fraction of the cost of boutique disposable masks. Mix up a custom blend for your skin type and enjoy the rejuvenating spa experience in your own home.
- Absorbent cotton or flannel fabric strips. (You can either cut one to fit your face, cutting out holes for eyes, nostrils and mouth, or cut 2 smaller custom pieces for forehead + nose, and jawline + cheeks. Please note that T-shirt fabric does not work well).
- 2-3 absorbent paper towels. (Fold each in half and use one for forehead, one for left chin up to cheeks, and one for right chin up to cheeks).
For Dry Skin:
- If using tea instead of water, pour boiling water over dried tea of choice and let steep for 10 minutes. Strain and let liquid cool to a comfortable, warm temperature.
- In a shallow mixing bowl, whisk together water or tea with all other ingredients for your specific skin type.
Instructions for Use:
- Dip fabric pieces or paper towels into the liquid until saturated. If dripping, gently wring out.
- Lay down and place strips over face, carefully avoiding eyes, nose and mouth.
- Remove mask after 10-15 minutes, or wait longer if desired.
- Dry skin mask may require a warm water rinse to remove excess honey. Oily skin mask should not require a rinse.
- To reuse fabric, rinse, wash, and dry. Paper towels are only good for one use.
