Want to create a hibiscus tea face mask at home? It is super easy, requires just a few ingredients, and can be prepared quickly. It infuses the goodness of hibiscus with the powerful properties of kaolin clay to cleanse your skin, brighten complexion, and impart smooth texture.
- ½ tsp of powdered hibiscus.
- 1 tsp of kaolin clay (green or white from our Mix & Play Set).
- 1 tsp of organic yogurt.
- Few drops of water (alternatively, you can use witch hazel or rose water).
- If you are using hibiscus petals, grind them in a spice grinder till it forms a fine powder. Put the powder in a glass bowl (wooden or plastic will do as well).
- Mix kaolin clay with hibiscus powder using a plastic or wooden spoon.
- Pour rose water or plain water, and mix thoroughly.
- Add yogurt.
- If you want the mask to combat signs of ageing, you can add 3 drops of rose-hip seed oil too.
- Wash your face and cleanse skin properly before applying the mask.
- It is necessary to exfoliate as well – if dead skin cells and dirt are piling up on the skin surface and blocking pores, the mask can’t penetrate deep within, so your skin won’t get the necessary nourishment.
- Apply the facial mask to your face and neck using a face mask brush so the layer is even.
- Don’t wait for the mask to dry and form cracks. Splash your face gentle with water, use a washcloth to wipe off the mask, and then pat dry.
- Always follow up with a toner and moisturiser, respectively.
