Homemade Soothing Face Mask

Hey all!!  Enjoying your Valentines Day!?  If you don't have plans tonight or if you just need some relaxing afterwards try a soothing homemade face mask!!  It's really easy and really cheap (my trademark).  I found this recipe online at http://elqalatawy.hubpages.com, and altered it to include ingredients that could be found already around your home or dorm.

Soothing face mask, what you need;

1 Tblsp of Yogurt (full fat is the best, but whatever you have)
1 Tblsp Honey (I have some for tea, but you can snag a packet from your cafeteria as well)
1 Tblsp Aloe Vera Gel (I used Vicks Vapo rub, you can use anything "tingly")
A few drops of Chamomile oil (I just used the Chamomile tea I had in my dorm)

My version of ingredients;

First, wash your face and pat dry.  

Add all of your ingredients into a bowl and stir.

For the Vicks Vapo Rub, I heated mine up in the microwave for a little bit to make it easier to combine.  You could also use Aloe Vera Gel if you have some, mint or eucalyptus oils, or anything "tingly".  You will have to adjust the amount for the amount of "tingle" you want.

For the Chamomile, since I didn't want to go out and buy the gel, just wet the tea bag in a little bit of hot water and squeeze it out into your bowl.  Be careful how much water ends up in the bowl because too much will make it hard to mix to the right texture.

Apply to face and let sit for 20 minutes, or how ever long you feel like being soothed, then wash off with warm water!!

I couldn't get the texture of mine to look like the one on http://elqalatawy.hubpages.com probably because I used household ingredients, but my face felt very soothed :). 

Go to http://elqalatawy.hubpages.com to check out other versions of this same mask for dry or oily skin or an exfoliating version!  There is also information about what the ingredients do for your skin.

I hope you have a wonderful and SOOTHING Valentines Day!!
