Glowing Rose Mask

I love making skin treats at home. As much as I love LUSH’s Fresh Face Masks or the high end skin treatments at Sephora, I honestly believe that the best face masks are made in the kitchen. Not only is the cost is next to nothing, it takes much less effort than making a trip to the mall. I had the itch to do indulge in something unabashedly floral and what would be better than rose? While rose moisturizes and helps maintain the skin’s pH level, Β turmeric has antiseptic and radiance boasting properties, gram flour is used to gently exfoliate, lemon juice is used to perk up the complexion and honey is to moisturize. I use this mostly as a face mask, but it can also be used as a body polish, as you please. Want a step by step? Well, the point is just to mix everything together, but for the visual people out there…

  • Take two big spoons of gram flour

  • Finish off by adding a dollop of honey and mixing in rose petals. I used dried rose petals I found at an ethnic grocery store, you could also use fresh rose petals (Hey, V-day is around the corner, if you receive roses, you know what to do with them, now!)
