Mix all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl or blend for a silkier texture. Wash face and apply mask. Alternatively, use as a hand/foot mask. For sensitive skin, leave mask on for 3-5 minutes. For regular skin, leave mask on for 10-15 minutes. Wash off with warm water and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer. Can keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. (source)
