DIY Strawberry Champagne Ice Face Mask – Facial Friday #16

IMG_4185

Happy New Year!  This is the first Facial Friday of 2017!

I have put together this simple ice cube facial using some of the left over party favors from new years.  Ice facials are meant to brighten your skin and give you a healthy glow.  Your skin is suppose to tighten and it helps calm down redness and inflammation.  I occasionally will use an ice cube on inflamed break outs.    The strawberries and champagne happened to be on hand and also have skin brightening qualities.  Use this mask for a fresh bright face after all the New Years celebrating.

Put all the ingredients into a blender and puree the mixture well.

Because of the champagne you will end up with some foam.  I poured the puree into a measuring cup and held back the foam.

I poured the puree into a silicon mold.

Then I put the tray in the freezer over night to get solid strawberry champagne cubes.

After cleansing I rubbed a few of these cubes over my face.  It does turn to liquid upon skin contact so it will be drippy.  Just saying, you will want a towel to catch all the drip.

Essential Makeover

Overall I liked this facial mask creation.  When rubbing the cube over my face I noticed the little strawberry seeds seemed a little abrasive.  I would pass over your skin with a little less heavy handed.  If your skin is sensitive them I would skip using the strawberry.  Unless your blender is awesome and puree the seeds into nothing.  You get the idea.

Thanks for stopping by!! Make this new year your year! Good luck!
