When Victoria Radford talks skincare, we listen. This mega babe and beauty powerhouse is the force behind Toronto’s Radford Studio (one of our go-to spots for all things beauty related) and as a renowned makeup artist and aesthetician — with an A-List clientele we might add!– she is definitely one of our top sources when seeking celeb-worthy treatments.
Considering products from her eponymous skincare and makeup line are some of the most treasured items on our #shelfie, we were super stoked to get our hands on a DIY face mask recipe from the queen of facials and face masks herself. This is a recipe that Victoria developed for Sunkist Citrus and it features the skin-friendly zest of California Meyer Lemons to create an incredible all-natural exfoliant.
Not being the most DIY-beauty savvy people in town, we put this recipe to the test to see how easy it would be to make at home, and if the mask is something we’d actually use or recommend. The result? Easy AF and we’re freaking OBSESSED.
Seriously, this DIY Lemon Coconut Face Mask can be whipped up in minutes with just a few ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen. Best of all? It really is MEGA hydrating and not only leaves your skin feeling amazing, but it tastes great too!
See below for how to make it:
DIY Lemon Coconut Mask Recipe by Victoria Radford
What You Need:
- Zest from 2 Sunkist Meyer Lemons
- 1/4 Cup of Organic Coconut Oil with Sea Buckthorn oil ( or plain organic coconut oil)
- 3 tbsp of Organic Manuka Honey (or plain organic honey)
What To Do:
- In a small bowl, combine the ingredients until it forms a thick paste.
- To use, apply the mixture to your face, massaging with a circular motion.
- Leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Your skin will be left smooth and hydrated with a fresh citrus scent.
Trust us, once you make this you’ll never look back. Plus, this recipe actually makes a decent amount so store the leftovers in a jar or container so you can reach for it every day.
PS. We also love using this as an amazing oil cleanser (which is great for removing makeup!) when don’t have time to let the mask sit for a full ten minutes.
