DIY Reusable Hydrating Face Mask
Yield: 1 mask
Active time: 15 minutes
What you need
Mask template (available online)
1 (12-inch x 10-inch) piece unbleached cotton muslin
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.
