Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 butterfly pea tea bags
  • 2 teaspoons agar agar

Steps

  1. Boil water in a small saucepan and drop tea in to steep.
  2. Remove tea and add agar agar while the water is boiling. Tea will bubble and thicken.

  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

Steps

  1. In a small bowl, mix gelatin, milk, honey and turmeric until mixture is smooth.
  2. Heat in microwave for 10 to 15 seconds until ingredients are warm to the touch. Allow mixture to become thick and goopy.
  3. Using your hands or a makeup applicator, apply all over your face, taking care to avoid eye and lip area.
  4. Allow mixture to set for 15 minutes.
  5. Beginning with the jawline, peel mask upward moving slowly and carefully.
  6. Rinse with lukewarm water to completely remove mask ingredients. Splash your face with cool water to close pores, and protect your now very sensitive skin with sunscreen.
