  • 5-6 peppermint leaves
  • 1 medium Aloe Vera leaf (about 6 inches long)


  1. Pick and wash peppermint leaves and place in a food processor
  2. Using a sharp knife, gently filet the skin lengthwise down the aloe vera leaf.
  3. Scoop out the inner gel and add to a food processor
  4. Pulse the food processor until peppermint leaves are roughly chopped and fully incorporated into the aloe. If you don't have a food processor, you can manually chop the leaves and then grind them in the mortar and pestle.

To Use

  1. Wash and dry face.
  2. Using clean hands, apply the mask taking care to avoid the eyes
  3. Allow the mask to sit for 10-20 minutes
  4. Using a cool cloth, gently wash off the mask
  5. You can use this as a moisturizer or apply your favorite cream for even more hydration.


This mask can be refrigerated for 24 hours, but I would not keep it any longer than that as it does not have a preservative. I actually love to refrigerate mine for several hours before using it. It is lovely and cool and makes an amazing way to end a day in the sun!
