This yummy, easy to make homemade face mask recipe is designed to balance, hydrate and cleanse normal and combination skin types.
It's also super-refreshing, and you'll find that it reveals clearer, softer, glowing skin when you're all done with it, especially if you use it in conjunction with other facial recipes like face moisturizers, steams and toners.
Using a facial mask once a week can really help prevent, and even reduce, the signs of aging. Caring for your skin really does make a noticeable difference...
And it doesn't hurt that these aromatherapy face mask recipes support the rest of your body as well, boosting your immune system, relaxing your muscles and soothing your nerves. Gotta love it!
1 tablespoon Cosmetic Clay of your choice (see how to choose below)
1 teaspoon Yogurt
1/2 teaspoon Honey
1/4 teaspoon Jojoba oil
1 drop Lavender essential oil
1 drop Geranium, Neroli OR Ylang Ylang essential oil
Whisk together all the ingredients except the clay in a small bowl.
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 yogurt or a splash of milk. Do not increase the oil, because the mask will slide right off your face.
Cleanse your face and leave it damp, then smooth the homemade face mask over your face and neck, avoiding your eyes and mouth.
Leave it on your face for 15 to 20 minutes (Relax! Lying down is good.)
This recipe makes enough for one facial application, and it does not keep, so slather it on and let it work its magic.
I've recommended Mountain Rose as my favorite supplier since starting
out on this journey. I always research suppliers for quality, ethics,
price and selection, and they're great on all fronts. So I feel good
about offering their products to you.
Having said that, I have to share another supplier for essential oils
that I personally now use because I've found their quality to be the
best. I switched to doTerra after buying a few oils like lavender and
tea tree and comparing them in my recipes.
What I found was that they worked faster and more effectively than
any other brand I've tried. So I want to offer their oils to you as
well. It's always good to have options, don't you think?
Here's how I see it...
