 Banana Walnut Face Scrub & Chocolate Mint Delight Mask

 

Enjoy a Holiday Face 'Treat'ment! Not only will the scents indulge your senses, the results will create a lasting softness that will turn your winter skin around! 

 

- Chocolate Mint Delight Mask -

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 t Cocoa Butter

  • 2 t Honey

  • 1/4 t Black Cocoa Powder

  • 1 Egg Yolk

  • 3 Drops Peppermint (Mentha piperita) Essential Oil

Eye Treatment:

  • Egg White

Directions: In a Pyrex bowl inside a saucepan filled with water (or your water bath; Bain Marie), add the Cocoa Butter and stir while it melts completely over a low flame. Then add the Honey and stir until thoroughly dissolved. Turn off the flame and add the Cocoa powder and stir until mixed completely. (This is a good time to make the Banana Walnut Face Scrub) Let cool slightly. Then divide an egg, adding the yolk to the mixture and the white into a separate ramekin. Mix the yolk into the mixture until smooth. Add 3 drops of Peppermint essential oil. Stir in.

How to Use: On a clean face (and after the Banana Walnut Face Scrub preferably) either brush on with a fan brush, or carefully apply with your fingers all over the face, neck and d￿llet￿nbsp; Continue to massage for a few minutes. Then using a small brush or your little finger, dab some of the Egg White around the eye area. Continue to massage the Chocolate Mint Mask a few minutes more until the mask begins to  get difficult to massage (Do not let it get completely dry). This is the time to take a warm wash cloth and gently to remove the entire mask in small areas at a time, rinsing the wash cloth intermittently. Once the mask is thoroughly removed, apply a hydrosol to the entire facial area with a saturated cotton ball. The skin should feel very soft and clean at this point. Spritz the entire area with more hydrosol and add a few drops of your favorite facial oil, like White Camellia or Pomegranate.

This is an incredibly softening and rejuvenating mask. It works especially well with the Banana Walnut Scrub below, which is also softening and moisturizing for normal, dry and/or mature skin. When used with the Banana Walnut Scrub, the Egg White Eye Treatment can be used under the eye as well as on the upper area. If used alone, you may want more of the softening action of the Chocolate Mint Mask only. The Black Cocoa Powder is a powerful antioxidant and adds a luscious chocolate scent. It may be substituted with a lighter Cocoa, but it will have less antioxidant properties. The Peppermint could be too strong for a sensitive skin, so just avoid this ingredient if you are in doubt. Please do not to go above the recommended amount as it could be to stimulating to the skin.

- Banana Walnut Face Scrub -

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Ripe Banana

  • 1 T Black Walnut Meal

  • 1 t Jojoba Oil

  • 1 t Turbinado Sugar

Directions: Mash up the Banana well in a dish. Add the Black Walnut Meal and mix well. If the meal is not crushed fine enough, grind for several seconds in a coffee mill. Add the Jojoba Oil and stir until completely blended and smooth. Then blend in the Sugar.

How to Use: Apply to a clean face, neck and d￿llet￿Massage gently for several minutes until the mixture begins to dry (about 5-10 minutes depending on how thick you apply it). Remove well with a warm washcloth.

This mask is very soothing and softening to the skin. The sugar acts as a very gentle exfoliant. This is a wonderful treatment for a normal, dry, and/or mature skin, especially when used before the Chocolate Mint Delight Mask (above).  There is enough mask to use this on the body if desired. If you choose to use this as a body scrub you may want to add an additional teaspoon of salt for extra exfoliation.
