  • Small bowl



  • Combine ingredients in a small bowl.
    Apple cider vinegar
  • Mix well. Then apply a think layer of mask to your face, avoiding the eye area, and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove with soft cloth and cool water. Then follow up with moisturizer and/or any serums of your choosing. Throw away any extra mask.
    Carrot Seed + Rosehip Eye Serum


Before you apply the mask, first remove all make-up and wash your face. Then apply the mask to your face and neck with clean fingers, but avoid the eye area (that will seriously sting!). The mask is a little runny so lie down for 10-15 minutes to avoid it dripping everywhere. Then remove the mask with a soft cloth and cool water and follow with moisturizer. And don't forget to wear sunscreen the next time you head outside.
I recommend this mask at night or before a shower as the pungent apple cider vinegar scent tends to linger! This mask doesn’t keep well so it’s best to make only enough for one application.
And if you're feeling adventurous, here's how to make your own apple cider vinegar. It's fun, trust me!
