easy fun peel off face mask

Bored out of your brains self isolating lately, why not do a home pamper treatment to alleviate that and boost complexion? A fun one to try with kids and a great home remedy for teenagers with breakouts and problem skin.

tomato juice mask

Tomatoes as pulped face masks can be used by any skin type but they are of supreme benefit if you have oily, blemished or acned skin. The trick here is in the juice as delivery mechanism of phytonutrients and mineral content and astringent. The lycopene content protects against oxidative damage, the vitamin A component will rejuvenate, and the vitamin C content clarifies skin. Witch hazel boosts the astringency and Epsom salts encourage the flush of toxins.

Ingredients
• 50ml of tomato juice
• 1 tablespoon of witch hazel extract
• 1 teaspoon Epsom salts
• 1 tablespoon agar agar or other vegetable gelatine

Method – Heat (not boil) the tomato juice via a bain-marie and then add all other ingredients, keep over heat and stir until the gelatine fully dissolves. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

Application – Pat on to face (avoiding your eyes) allow to dry completely (it may begin to naturally peel at this point) then wash/peel the mask off.
