Facial Mask Recipe

This homemade face mask is packed with nutrients and moisturizers - food & drink for your face!

This facial mask recipe is super-nourishing for dry, damaged and aging skin types.

It's packed with easy-to-find, inexpensive items you'll find in your kitchen (mostly!) that provide powerful healing, age defying benefits. Use this recipe regularly for a few months and you'll really notice a difference in the tone, clarity and smoothness of your skin. It's awesome!

Using a good face moisturizer, cleanser and toner everyday also helps keep your skin young and healthy looking.

Kaolin clay gently draws impurities from the skin, as well as cleansing, exfoliating and stimulating circulation. Sour cream contains lactic acid, which tightens and softens skin, while honey draws moisture into the skin.

Carrier oils such as Kukui Nut, Sweet Almond or Sea Buckthorn oil provide vitamins, antioxidants and other skin-restoring benefits, and a drop of cider vinegar balances pH and helps control the development of wrinkles.

Facial Mask Recipe


2 tablespoons Kaolin Clay (how to choose clay)

1 Egg Yolk OR 1 tablespoon Sour Cream

1/2 teaspoon Honey

1/2 teaspoon Cider Vinegar

1 teaspoon Sweet Almond or Kukui Nut oil

2 drops Rose OR Sandalwood essential oil

1 drop Palmarosa OR Neroli essential oil

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients except the kaolin clay in a small bowl.
  2. Slowly add the clay a little at a time, stirring thoroughly to create a spreadable paste. (If you add it all at once you get lumps, which are annoying when you go to spread it on your face.) If the mixture seems too thick, add a little more sour cream or a splash of milk. Do not increase the oil, because the mask will slide right off your face.
  3. Cleanse your face and leave it damp, then smooth the homemade face mask over your face and neck, avoiding your eyes and mouth.
  4. Leave it on your face for 15 to 20 minutes (Relax! Lying down is good.)
  5. Wash the homemade facial mask off using a warm, wet washcloth.
  6. Follow with toner and moisturizer.

Customizing Your Homemade Facial Mask Recipe


Replace the sour cream with yogurt or milk, which also remove dead skin cells, tone and soften skin. Note: the higher the fat content, the more nourishing they are for you skin. This is one time when Low Fat is NOT your best bet.

Replace the Sweet Almond or Kukui Nut oil with other aromatherapy carrier oils best for your skin's unique needs. Check out Borage oil, Rosehip oil and Sea Buckthorn oil.

Other hydrating, skin regenerating essential oils you could use include chamomile, helichrysum, carrot seed, frankincense and patchouli. Simply replace any of the essential oils in the facial mask recipe with these. Just remember not to increase the number of drops!
