DIY: Vitamin C face mask from Detox Your World

I was recently sent some samples from Detox Your World to play with. I used three of the samples to make some pumpkin chocolate cups and I reserved the Camu Camu Powder for a face mask. Camu Camu is one of the highest concentrated forms of Vitamin C in the world and so it is usually used in a way to boost the immunity. What most people tend to forget, though, is that Vitamin C is an excellent resource for your skin, as well.

How is Vitamin C an excellent skin booster?

Vitamin C can:



This, paired with raw honey in my quick and easy homemade face mask, makes for a beautiful skin-sweeping beauty product. Raw honey is a powerhouse on the skin and has equally impressive benefits for the skin.

Raw Honey can:

  • moisturize and soften the skin
  • fight infection (including acne) because of its antibacterial properties
  • brighten the skin with the natural antioxidants, fighting free radicals

Combine these two products in a matter of seconds for a fabulous home-spa experience.

a recipe
1 t raw honey (affiliate link)

Mix in a small dish until a paste forms. Spread onto your face and let sit for 10 minutes. Wipe away with a warm, damp washcloth. I spritzed my face with my lavender and sea salt tonic for fresh skin, all day.

After my morning workout I spread this quick mixture onto my clean skin (I washed with warm water after my workout) and let it do its thang while I got my stuff ready for a shower. Of course, I stopped to snap a pic of myself ... I can't resist documenting my homemade projects!

  2. I haven't tried making a face mask at home since I was probably ten, but I remember it being super fun and especially the fact that you can eat it! This one looks awesome and I bet the raw honey is so nice on your skin.

    1. Yes it's so fun! I love making my own beauty products because I feel like a chemist haha my husband thinks I'm crazy. The honey does feel incredible, it's exfoliating so my skin is always so smooth and moisturized afterward.
