All of these ingredients should be in the kitchen cabinet, but if they are not they can be found out a local grocery store.
Making the Mask
The way to make the sea salt peppermint mask is by placing the 2 tbsp. of sea salt into a small down and dissolve it with 1 tbsp. of warm water.
Then add the 3 drops of peppermint oil, 2 drops of tea tree oil, and 3 tbsp. of honey into the salt water mixture and combined them together to form a golden yellow syrup.
After add in your ¼ tsp. of cornstarch to help thicken the mixture right up into a light yellow creamy textured facial mask.
If the mask is to runny add another small ¼ tsp. of cornstarch, and if the mask is too thick add a tsp. of warm water. The mask should be thick and easy to spread onto the face without dripping off of it.
Once the homemade sea salt peppermint facial mask is made it can be placed into a small plastic container and placed into the refrigerator until it is ready to be used.
Using the Mask
The way to use and apply the sea salt peppermint mask is by first cleansing the skin and face with warm water and a facial cleanser.
After take a small handful of the mask and lather it right onto the skin and face in a nice thick even layer. A burning, stinging, and cooling sensation will be present while the mask is on, but this is only because the mask is cleaning the acne blemishes and drawing out the puss and the toxins inside of them. The facial mask should be left on for 20 minutes.
After it can be washed off with plenty of warm water. The salt and baking soda from the mask will help remove blackheads, whiteheads, and oils, and the peppermint oil and tea tree oil will help tone, cleanse and kill the bacteria on the skin.
The honey in the mask is meant to soothe, lightly condition, nourish, and kill germs on the skin as well to prevent further acne breakouts. The cornstarch in the mask is only use to help thicken the mask right up.
After the facial mask has been used and taken off, the acne blemishes should begin to dry out and the skin should become clear and less painful.

People with sensitive skin may notice some server drying after using this facial mask and should apply a light facial cream or serum to help keep skin well hydrated and protected.
