In this whole wide world, who wouldn't have dreamt of Glowing like a 1000 Watt Bulb? Here's the BEST EVER FACE MASK RECIPE for that 1000 Watt "Rose" Bulb Glow.
- 1 Native Indian Hibiscus flower. Hybrid ones don't work because they do not contain the slime that our Native Country Hibiscus flowers do. That Slime is the Hero here!
- 1 or 2 Ripe Strawberries depending on the size.
- 2 tbpn Brown/Demerara Sugar. You can use the regular white sugar too.
- 1 tbspn Besan/Chikpea or Rice flour.
First, pound the Hibiscus flower, Strawberry and Sugar in to a paste. Try to make it as smooth as you can. It will naturally be a little chunky. Don't worry.
Since i can't do such a straining job with my right hand, (No no...i'm not lazy but i've got MS so...) Sweet hubs did it for me. :)
Our paste is ready now.
Now, put the Besan or Rice flour in to the paste and mix. This step is mandatory. Because, the thin juicy paste won't hold up on it's own. So, this flour is like our binding agent.
This is what our Final emulsion should look like.
That's it! Apply! and, leave it on for atleast 20 minutes.
Hubs couldn't resist either! :D
Here's my 1000 watt Glowing face with all the imperfections intact. :) Zero edits done and Zero Make-up worn!
So, get ready to scout for the Native Indian Hibiscus flowers and make 'glow'ry while the strawberry season lasts. If you can't find strawberries then, just add another Hibiscus flower instead. You can add a few drops of lemon juice in the place of strawberries.
