Homeopathic Skin Recipes by Robin McDonald

Hi everyone, welcome to The Kitchen. I'm your Kitchen beautician, Robin McDonald. Today's video is how to make a homeopathic skincare mask remedy and today we're going to be working with Rosacea. Rosacea is a reddening of the skin usually on an oily irritated skin. So the first thing you're going to need and this is a little weird but this is a root called burdock and burdock is found in health food store. It's from the daisy family and it has a lot of anti-inflammatory powers and immunity boosting powers. So we're going to use a little bit of that, a little bit of aloe gel. I like to use an organic aloe gel, try to get at least a 99% unscented aloe gel for this mask and a cup of chamomile tea, about three bags strong. So let's give our, put our Burdock in there. We're going to add the aloe, just whisk that up to a nice paste. This mask is really more of a serum thin kind of a mask. If you wanted to thicken this up, you could add a little bit of oatmeal. Oatmeal is great for this too, another something that you can add that has a lot of anti-inflammatory properties to it is oatmeal, a little bit of the chamomile and then you're going to see how this really kind of thins up there. Now you can apply this with a brush or with clean fingertips. I'm going to add a little bit more aloe to this. I think I might have overdone it with the tea. Now this mask will stay in the fridge for about four days. You want to apply it liberally and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Most masks will stop working after 15 minutes. Rinse with nice cool water and then you can go on to use your skin treatment, whatever that's going to be after that. You can use a nice aloe gel after this mask on Rosacea skin. And that's it for me. Thanks for watching. I'm Robin McDonald, your Kitchen beautician. Please visit me at and have a great day.
