This DIY mask was inspired by the famous “Truth Sugar Glow” mask by Ole Henriksen. I got it as a Christmas present last December and really enjoyed using it as a wake me up in the morning. So when I found a DIY recipe, that almost completely copied it and the effect it gave, I was really excited!
You will need:
- 1 table spoon of honey ( you can use any, but the raw type will guarantee the benefits)
- 1 table spoon of brown sugar ( make sure you don’t use the typical white one, as it will be too harsh on your face)
- A few drops of orange essential oil
- A few drops of vitamin E oil ( check out your organic shops or local pharmacies for the oils)
What you need to do:
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and make sure that the mask is of a thick consistency, If it appears to be a bit runny, you can always add a bit more sugar to it. And if you over did it with the thickness, adding more honey will help ( This way you really can’t fail )
Apply it to your face using massage like movements and leave it on for approximately 10 minutes ( I usually do it before doing my dry brushing routine and popping into the shower) and then rinse it off with warm water ( this will help it all come of easier).
Secret tip : This mask acts as an awesome lip scrub too ( a great dupe for the LUSH lip scrubs), just don’t forget to apply lip balm after!
Doing this mask twice a week is enough to keep your complexion glowing.
