How to make Henna Freckles
You may have seen that freckles and natural looking skin are totally in style right now. I've always loved freckles, and now it's possible to give yourself a cute sun-kissed look, temporarily, using natural henna. Unfortunately, many of the viral videos you may have seen used chemical henna, which you really shouldn’t put on your skin, let alone on your face. I used my regular henna recipe, and applied the faux freckles in different sizes, scattered randomly across the bridge of my nose and cheekbones (where the sun tends to hit). I left the paste on for about 2 hours and then rinsed it off in the shower, and after that it takes about 24 hours for the color to darken up. I'm loving the effect! If you don’t feel like making your own henna paste, you can also use my home-made fresh henna cones (scroll down). Please never use a commercially produced cone on your face or body, as the synthetic dyes and chemicals in those can scar you, or harm your internal organs. Remember, real henna is not shelf stable, it needs to be kept frozen when not in use.
The next day result of faux freckles, very subtle and natural and I love it!
