Organic Skin CareJessica AndersonComment

It's easy to whip up this antioxidant, anti-aging, cooling mask with ingredients you probably already have! This recipe was taken from Juliette Goggin and Abi Righton's LOVELY book: Handmade Spa. Take a few minutes to treat your skin to this  nourishing skin treatment:

You will need:

1 tsp Matcha Green Tea powder

1 cucumber

1/2 tsp Vegeset

20 drops lime essential oil

Combine the matcha and 10 ounces of hot (not boiling water). Stir until the tea dissolves and let it cool completely. Toss the cucumber in a blender, add the green tea mixture and blend. Add the vegeset and blend again. Place the mixture in a pan over low heat, stirring constantly. Once it reaches boiling, remove from heat and cool completely. Add the lime essential oil and hand-stir. Pour mixture into a glass bowl and place in the fridge to set. 

Spread all over clean face, neck, and chest. Cover with a disposable cotton sheet mask if you have one. It's okay if you don't! Leave on for 5 - 10 minutes before removing with warm water.  Follow with toner and moisturizer
