Summery DIY Face Mask

The scorching heat here in London is making me do all sorts of things from wearing less make-up than usual to trying out DIY face masks.

I have been spending more time with Skincare recently as I felt it's so much better in the Summer to do so as opposed trying to conceal spots with tonnes of foundation, which on melting reveals blemishes and spots.

What you'll need:

3 tbsp rice flour
3 tbsp brewed green tea
1 tbsp mayonnaise 
1 tbsp honey

The quantity mentioned above creates a nice thick paste that can be easily applied with any make-up brush or even better, fingers!

The green tea has antioxidant benefits, mayonnaise and honey hydrate the skin and rice flour to exfoliate, brighten, protect from the sun as well as for anti ageing. Rice flour has uncountable benefits for the skin and has been used in Asian skincare since centuries. Did you know you can even use it as a translucent loose powder for a soft focus finish? 

Depending on what skin concerns you are suffering from you can add some lemon, yogurt, aspirin, sugar and so on. 

I left it on for 20 minutes and it made my skin super soft and bright, like it had a glow from within. If your combination skin is going bonkers in this heat, do try this out as it's perfect at balancing dry and oily areas appropriately.
