How to Make Your Brightening DIY Face Mask

This mask can be refrigerated for approximately one week. If you would like to make a bigger portion to use for the week you can double the recipe. 

  1. Dilute the lemon juice with water in a bowl. 

    Note: If you have sensitive skin you may want to add a little extra water to dilute your lemon juice. This way you will not cause skin irritation from the natural citric acid in the lemon. 

  2. Mix the aloe vera gel in with your lemon juice mixture, and stir until it is well mixed together.

How to Apply your DIY Brightening Face Mask

You can use this face mask up to 2 time a week.

  1. Wash and clean your face, and then pat your face dry. 

  2. Using your fingers or a face mask brush, smooth this mask all over your. Apply a generous coat so that your entire face is thickly coated. 

  3. Leave this brightening face mask on for approximately 15-20 minutes. Lemon juice can sting your skin so if you feel an intense stinging due to sensitive skin remove the mask within 5 to 10 minutes of putting it on. 

  4. Wash the face mask off of your face and continue with your normal night time routine.
