Beauty guru with ‘glass skin’ reveals cheap two-ingredient DIY face mask that will leave you with perfect, wrinkle-free complexion as she claims formula is ‘BETTER than Botox’

A beauty guru has revealed a simple DIY product that she claims will leave you with perfect glass-like skin – without having to fork out big bucks on Botox or other pricey treatments. 

The Glass Skin Secret TikTok account shared a video showcasing a woman, who makes beauty tutorials as MehGlow, creating a DIY at-home mask she claimed was ‘better than Botox.’ 

The beauty guru, who has perfectly clear, youthful skin, shared the clip in December and commenters wanted detail on how to create an easy, inexpensive treatment. 

MehGlow, who has almost 800,000 followers on TikTok, regularly shares beauty hacks made with ingredients you can find in your pantry – including this option made with just coconut oil and aloe vera.

What is glass skin?  

  • The Korean beauty craze promotes dewy, poreless, and luminous skin 
  • Glass skin should look super hydrated and ageless 
  • K-beauty brands like Glow Recipe, Tonymoly, and Sulwhasoo have become wildly popular in the US
  • Their products help achieve this look

MehGlow shared a video as she applied a simple clear gel mask, which she had made herself, to her face.  

The ingredients included a spoonful of ultra-hydrating aloe vera gel and a spoonful of coconut oil mixed together in a mug, until it develops a jelly-like consistency. 

According to Healthline, coconut oil can help with inflammation and acne while keeping skin hydrated, while aloe vera absorbs easily into dry skin and can seal moisture in for that ‘glass skin’ effect that’s all the rage on social media. The gel within the thick leaves of the plant is known for its many soothing benefits, including  preventing wrinkles.

Commenters wanted to know if you’re meant to sleep in the mask all night or rinse it off, and Healthline experts advise leaving a light layer on all night. 

This isn’t the only ‘better than Botox’ recipe the beauty expert has shared with her skincare obsessed followers.  

In December, she made a mask using milk and scoops of cornmeal with olive oil mixed together in a bowl.

One commenter joked, ‘I just finished eating it I feel sick I’ll update you guys though,’ as another quipped, ‘Add an egg and you’ll have cornbread.’  

Another person asked if they could still use the mask if they had oily skin, to which another commenter answered, ‘Please do not use olive oil if you have acne prone skin or oily skin. Jojoba oil is light enough and suitable for oily skin.’

Commenters flocked to the video to share their own DIY hacks, with one person suggesting rose water mixed with plain flour for a similar effect. 

In another ‘better than Botox’ TikTok, the content creator uses ‘snail slime gel,’ which is often an ingredient in Korean beauty products, mixed with Vitamin E and lavender essential oil.

On YouTube, MehGlow offers up multiple masks with simple ingredients, like onion juice, tomatoes and chickpea flour.
