Face Mask (For Oily, Combination, or Normal Skin, Alternative for Dry Skin)

Okay, here is the face mask I promised from my last post.

For Oily, Combo, or Normal Skin Types:

Ingredients:
Water
Corn Starch
Rose Oil ( I used 5% suspended in fractioned Coconut Oil)
Tea Tree Oil (optional)
Ground Cinnamon

1) Add a 1/4 of a cup of water to a bowl.
2) Add a few drops of rose oil and add some ground cinnamon. If you have extremely oily skin, add a few drops of Tea Tree Oil. Stir.
3) Add the cornstarch. You will probably need a lot. This will turn it into gak. Gak is when the solution is liquid to the touch, but gets hard when you press on it. Just keep adding cornstarch and you will understand.

Voila! Dont put too close to the eyes. If you have oily skin, leave it on until it dries and then an additional 5 minutes. If you have normal skin leave it on until it dries. If you have combination skin only put it on the T-zone and other oily spots.

-----------

Dry Skin Alternative:

Since the cinnamon (and Tea Tree Oil) dry out the skin, if you have dry skin you dont want to use these. Instead substitute some Aloe Vera or Agave Nectar.
