When you make your own herbal face masks, you will need to use either fresh or powdered herbs and other ingredients.

Melt the glycerin on the stove in a double boiler, add essential oils and color, pour into molds, and in a half an hour or so, you will have your own home made glycerin soap that is ready to use and excellent for your skin. You may also want to make a skin toner, which also only take a few minutes to make. There are many different toners you can make with fresh and dried herbs. For dry skin, boil up some mint leaves, and add a few drops of the extract, along with a half teaspoon of alum, to one cup of distilled water. Store in a cool dark place, and apply to the skin with a cotton ball. Use rosewater for normal skin, or whisk honey and eggs together with a teaspoon of lemon juice, and apply like a mask. Rinse off after about 10 minutes. Beauty is only skin deep, so you want to make sure that you look after your skin, so it is soft, supple and beautiful for many, many years. You can age gracefully when you are using products that will help your skin to stay young looking.
