DIY Face Masks - Bespoke face mask Ideas Using Skin Cashmere

The weekend is nigh and we’re planning on indulging in some TLC by swapping our fabric face mask for the beauty kind this weekend.  We’re going to show you how easy it is to whip up a natural, skin nourishing face mask using staple kitchen ingredients and our Skin Cashmere.

For those who aren’t familiar, Skin Cashmere is our face and body mask inspired by the bridal rituals of Kashmir. It’s the first of its kind, clay free face and body mask to be offered in the UK and has been used for centuries by brides from the region preparing for their wedding ceremony.

A fragrant blend of powdered botanicals like crushed rose petals, turmeric and fragrant sandalwood powder culminate in this exotic ritual that has stood the test of time and promises to nourish your skin.

The beauty of this powdered dream is its versatility. It’s incredibly easy to customise and whip up a face mask to tackle a multitude of skin concerns. Because we all know that our skin’s needs vary, having something that can be used in multiple ways is always a winner in our eyes.

Please remember to prepare your face before applying a face mask, cleanse your skin and ensure makeup and dirt are removed before indulging in a face treatment.

 

  1. Honey Mask for Acne and Inflamed skin

Mix together 1 & ½ teaspoons of Skin Cashmere with 1 tablespoon of Organic Honey

Apply to cleansed skin and leave on for 5-8 minutes

Why does it work?

Our Skin Cashmere is contains organic turmeric and sandalwood powder, both have anti-inflammatory and astringent properties which are ideal when addressing acne prone skin. Combined with honey, which is rich in anti-oxidants as well as antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, creates a powerful acne and blemish fighting face mask. It not only helps to soothe inflammation and prevent future breakouts, but the humectant properties of honey coupled with the healing and rejuvenating properties of sandalwood in our Skin Cashmere nourish and moisturise the skin whilst also helping to refine skin tone and reduce scarring caused by acne.

 

Honey Acne Prone Face Mask
  1. Avocado Mask for Dry & Dull skin

Mix together 1 & ½ teaspoons of Skin Cashmere with ¼ mashed Avocado, ½ teaspoon Organic Honey and 2 drops of Argan & Orange Blossom Elixir (Sub with your favourite facial oil)

Apply to cleansed skin and leave on for up to 10 minutes gentle buff away with warm, damp cloth.

Why does it work?

Hydrate and exfoliate in one swing with this effective multipurpose mask. The Skin Cashmere’s powdered botanicals includes gram flour which gently exfoliate the skin, whilst the inclusion of our non-comedogenic (non-pore blocking) Elixir and avocado supercharge this mask, giving an intense moisture boost. Both are rich in Vitamin E and EFAs (essential fatty acids like oleic and linoleic acids) which have an extremely hydrating effect on dry skin. As you know, honey is a natural humectant, and its addition encourages the skin to lock in extra moisture.

Hydrating Avocado Face Mask
  1. Balancing Anti-Aging Papaya Mask

 Mix 1 & ½ teaspoon Skin Cashmere with 10g mashed Papaya and 2 drops of Argan & Orange Blossom Elixir (Sub with your favourite facial oil).

Apply to cleansed skin and leave on for up to 10 minutes gentle buff away with warm, damp cloth.

Why does it work?

Papaya is rich in alpha-hydroxyl and the enzyme papain, which not only helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles but also acts as a powerful exfoliant. Beta-carotene and phytochemicals help to balance out skin tone helping to reduce hyper-pigmentation and scarring sometimes associated with aging. Our Skin Cashmere is a powerhouse nutrient dense, skin food; the antiseptic properties found in turmeric and sandalwood work beautifully with the skin softening and anti ageing properties of crushed rose petals, a key ingredient in Skin Cashmere. Skin is left refreshed, rejuvenated and exfoliated with a visible glow.

Anti Ageing Papaya Face Mask

 

  1. Renew, Clarify and Firming Face Mask

Mix 1 & ½ teaspoon Skin Cashmere with 1 tablespoon Organic Greek Yoghurt.

Apply to cleansed skin and leave on for up to 10 minutes gentle buff away with warm, damp cloth.

Why does it work?

The antioxidants in Skin Cashmere pair perfectly with zinc, calcium and lactic acid found in yoghurt, culminating in a mask that not only exfoliates, moisturises but also protects the skin from damage caused by free radicals. B vitamins found in yoghurt aids cell regeneration and renewal, whilst the antiseptic properties of turmeric and sandalwood help to reduce inflammation.

Remember to finish off your masking session with a good natural moisturiser – We love to use our Argan and Orange Blossom Elixir, it’s naturally non-comedogenic so doesn’t block pores or aggravate acne making it a highly effective natural face oil for most skin types.
