One of my favorite parts of being a “girl mom” is all the fun spa days we have together! My 3 year old daughter loves everything fancy. She is always asking to have tea parties and paint our nails. Because I’ve struggled so much with finding sensitive products for my skin I needed to experiment a little with the right ingredients. The result is my go-to gentle face mask for our girls’ nights.
I love to use super simple ingredients for basically anything I make. Can’t screw it up if it’s easy, right? As always, everything in this face mask is skin safe, gentle, and perfect for sensitive skin.
Make it yourself
Start by brewing two bags (or 2 tbls loose leaf) of green tea in 1 cup of water. Let it steep and cool. Measure out 4 tbls into a small glass bowl. Add in 2 tbls of White Kaolin clay and stir until incorporated. Next, open up and scrape out the aloe from 1-2 leaves of an aloe vera plant. If the mixture is too runny, add another tbls of the clay. You want a loose batter consistency.
Simply use your fingers to apply to your face, avoiding the eye area. Let it dry (around 10 minutes) and then rinse off with warm water and a washcloth. The Kaolin Clay is a very gentle exfoliant. I keep the glass bowl covered in the fridge for up to 4 days. Although I don’t recommend using this mask more than twice a week, I have read that Kaolin Clay is gentle enough for everyday use. Using masks, even gentle face masks, too often can be harsh on your skin and cause irritation. It’s so important to take care of your skin.
