As I mentioned yesterday in Part I of this end-of-summer treatment, your skin has had sun and wind overload for the past 2-3 months, so it really needs some extra TLC now, especially if you have skin issues. From dryness to dark spots to breakouts and flareups, not only will this juicy treat help you, but a moisturizing mask will too. You need to bring some moisture back to your skin from all the dryness it has endured!
This mask is soothing and fragrant and can also double as a night cream for dry skin. Both almond and sunflower oil have a moisturizing, softening action on the skin. Almond oil also has a reputation as a cleanser, and the lavender oil is soothing.
Soften the lanolin in a small bowl over a bowl of boiling hot water. Then, transfer the lanolin to a slightly bigger bowl and add the sunflower and almond oils. Keep over the hot water, and mix/beat for a short while until they are well blended. Take the bowl away from the heat and continue beating as the mixture thickens. Then add the lavender oil. Pour into a sterile container with a tight lid when the cream is cold. Use as a mask 3 times a week, spreading on a clean face, keeping it on for 20 minutes and removing it with a tissue. Do NOT wash the mask off. If you have very dry skin, use the mask as a night cream every night.
And remember, all of the treatments I give to you work that much better when on AcnEase®, our all-botanical skin repair treatment for individuals with problem skin, acne or rosacea symptoms.
The proprietary ingredients that make up AcnEase continue to work even when you're sleeping. When they are combined with natural treatments like these, they assist the process!
PS - I would love to hear how this mask works for you. You can reach me on Facebook or Twitter to let me know!
