Homemade Face Mask

Making your own face mask is always a good ideas, because it saves you money and you have control over the type of ingredients you use.

The face mask i love lifts and tightens my skin, i love it and i want you guys to try is out. Okay so here it goes;

Combine 2 Tbsp plain yogurt with 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (the juice of one lemon) and apply to your cleansed face and neck. Let it dry for 20 to 30 minutes. You’ll feel the mask tighten on your face and neck, which creates a lifting and firming effect. Leave it on longer (up to one hour) for even more face-lifting effects. Once done, rinse with tepid water followed by a cool rinse. This mask can be done two to three times a week or whenever you need a face lift. “This instant face-lifting mask helps fade age-spots, acne scars and even helps keep blemishes and acne in check. It also gets rid of uneven-looking skin tone.

The Salmon Roses

For the salmon roses you will need…sushi-make-recipe
Prepared sushi rice
An avocado
Wasabi
Ginger
Japanese mayonnaise
Soy sauce
Salmon Roe/ Seaweed Caviar
Salmon

Make sure your salmon is as fresh as possible, look for bright flesh that is not dull, darkened or dry looking. Try to purchase a relatively thick fillet, approximately 3cm in breadth and 8cm + in width. This makes slicing the correct size ribbons for your salmon roses a lot easier. It is recommended to slice against the grain of the fish and to use as sharp a knife as possible. Do not saw at the fish, but rather attempt to slice through it in one smooth movement.

Method

Step 1
Set up your workstation. Have your bowl of warm water, as well as all your ingredients, nearby. Set out a chopping board and make sure your knife is both sharp and clean. Make sure to rinse knife in warm water after preparing each ingredient.

Step 2
Slice the avocado in half and using one half, cut into as thin strips as possible. The avocado slices are going to go between the salmon and rice, and need to be as flat as possible. Take the thin slices and cut into pieces of about 2cm x 1cm. Put aside to use later.

Step 3
Slice the salmon fillet against the grain. Try aim for as thin ribbons as you can. As mentioned, each salmon ribbon should be approximately 3 cm wide and 8cm long. Put aside for later.

Step 4
Rinse hands in warm water, this helps to prevent the rice from sticking to your hands. Repeat th

roughout process. Take a small amount of rice and roll into a ball. Place on cutting board and gently push it down using the flattened palm of your hand. You are aiming to create a sturdy base for your salmon rose and a relatively smooth top on which to place mayonnaise and caviar. The ball of rice should now have a diameter of about 2.5 to 3cm. Remember, too much rice will detract from the salmon’s flavour.

Step 5 – The finishing touches!
Put a small drop of wasabi on your fingertip and lightly spread along the side of the rice ball from the top to the base. Take your avocado slice and place against wasabi, think of it as an adhesive. The 1cm section should be at the base of the rice ball.
Carefully roll your salmon ribbon around the circumference of the rice circle.
Sushi mayonnaise comes in a squeeze bottle and can be easily applied on top of the salmon rose, but use a teaspoon if necessary. I generally use half a teaspoon of mayonnaise per salmon rose. Gently drop a little caviar on top of the mayonnaise.

Serve accompanied by soy sauce, pickled ginger and wasabi. Don’t forget the chopsticks xx
