Skin & Tonic: Coco Mask

Something about mixing up a face mask makes me feel like an alchemist. The trick is to incorporate the liquid very gradually – it's a bit like baking; you can always add more, but you can't take any away. I use a few drops of a rose mist to make the mask even more nourishing but filtered water or face oils (or a combination of all three) will work just as well.

Formulated from coconut milk powder, corn starch, Kaolin clay, aloe leaf juice powder, and lavender flower oil, Skin & Tonic's Coco Mask is 60% organic and 100% suitable for vegans. I like to apply it a couple of times a week to rehydrate and detoxify my skin.

One teaspoon of powder typically yields enough mixture to cover your face and neck. Simply smooth it onto cleansed skin and leave for ten minutes before removing with a warm wash cloth. Then layer serum and moisturiser as normal. Some clay masks can be drying but the addition of coconut milk and aloe vera prevents this one from being so – it leaves my skin soft, refined and refreshed. A 50g jar will make ten masks.
