Gelatin is commonly used in many commercial peel-off masks. It is rich in collagen, which can help smooth out facial lines and create firmer, plump skin. It also helps improve firmness and elasticity of the skin, preventing stretch marks, as it provides and promotes additional collagen growth in the skin. Here is a simple and easy to make mask for radiant glowing skin.
2 Tbsp unflavored gelatin
3 Tbsp milk
3 drops of lavender oil
In a bowl, add the 3 ingredients and mix well. Heat over a double boiler, once hot stir until all the gelatin grains have fully dissolved. Remove from the heat and let the mixture cool down. Apply the mask evenly over the skin and let it dry for 10 to 15 minutes. When ready to remove, peel it off and rinse skin with lukewarm water.
