Make a date with this moisturizing sheet mask to infuse your skin with all sorts of hydrating ingredients like rosehip oil, witch hazel, and squalane, which delivers antioxidants. It’ll take some DIY action in the form of cutting out a muslin round to fit the shape of your face, but then you can sit back and relax for 20 minutes while the treatment does its work. Plus, the muslin mask is reusable, so you can make spa night a regular occurrence.

DIY Reusable Hydrating Face Mask

Yield: 1 mask
Active time: 15 minutes

What you need

Special equipment:
Mask template (available online)
1 (12-inch x 10-inch) piece unbleached cotton muslin

3 teaspoons glycerin
3 teaspoons rosewater
2 teaspoons witch hazel
4 drops rosehip oil
4 drops squalane oil


Print and cut out a mask template; then trace it onto the muslin. Cut the mask around the perimeter, followed by openings for your eyes, mouth, and nose.

Add all remaining ingredients to a small jar and shake until combined. Remove lid and place the mask inside; soak until all of the liquid has been absorbed. Place the prepared mask over your clean face, lightly patting into place, and let it sit for 20 minutes. Remove mask and wipe any excess liquid from your face using a washcloth.

Wash the muslin with warm water and a small amount of hand soap; rinse well and hang to dry. If the fabric frays, just cut off any loose threads before using again.
