Priscilla Thach (@priscillathachh) has garnered over 92,000 followers on TikTok, where she shares beauty tutorials and tips for different skin types.
She took to the social media platform to reveal a natural alternative to invasive anti-aging methods.
“Making viral flaxseed Botox mask,” read the text over the video.
She showed herself with the mask dripping from her face before demonstrating how she made it.
She placed half a cup of flaxseeds in a pot to simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
Once the water had become slimy, she used her hand to scoop it into a glass storage container.
Priscilla recommended leaving the homemade mask on the face for just 30 minutes.
She captioned the post with hashtags including #flaxseedgel and #DIYmask, which helped it to reach over 3.1 million viewers.

“It shrinks large pores, exfoliates, firms and lifts, and removes excess oil,” Priscilla claimed.
She added that the mask mixture can be stored in the fridge for up to a month.
Her video received over 160,000 likes from people who were grateful for the skincare tip.
Hundreds of viewers took to the comment section revealing they would be trying to make the mask for themselves and asked where they could buy flaxseeds.
“This works better than the rice water for me,” one person wrote.
“My mom has been pressing her oil from flaxseed for years, and suddenly it’s become a trend,” another said.
“You can use it as a hair mask too, flaxseed is so great,” a third chimed in.
“I’ve been putting this on my face every day for one week now and it’s fantastic. I’m shocked by the results,” a fourth commented.
Organic flaxseeds are available to buy from Walmart for just $7.
Many customers have given them a five-star rating for being “fresh and high quality.”

A study published by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health claims omega-3 fatty acids are essential for healthy aging.
Flaxseeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids which can be beneficial to incorporate in diets. However, the skin-tightening effect of DIY face masks is temporary.
“When applying a flaxseed face mask mixed with water, it can cause a temporary tightening effect because of its gel texture as it starts to dry — giving it a ‘Botox’ like appearance,” Gina Damato, an esthetician and the founder of Château Glow facial spa in Brooklyn, told The Post.
“Once the face mask is removed, any original fine lines and wrinkles will still be apparent.”
