I Love A Good Face Mask

A good face mask has so many beneficial effects, for example, a good face mask will invigorate, nurture and stimulate the skin. It will refine the pores, cleanse and then peel off the dead cells from the outer layer of skin. This can help to clear acne, loosen blackheads, soothe your skin and calm any irritation.

A good face mask can act as a natural face lift and will help combat the appearance of wrinkles, improving the tone and contour of the face.

The minerals in a good face mask will contain many active ingredients. There are lots of different textures, for example, some face masks are rich and creamy while others dry hard and crack when you smile.

I like to use a clay based face mask, there are many types of clay that can be used and clay is full of minerals that have anti-ageing effects on the skin. The reason clays are so beneficial is that for many thousands of years they have absorbed plant and mineral content from the earth. There are many different colours and clay comes from all over the world.

Clay mixes beautifully with essential oils and green clay is my favourite.

Green Clay

Green clay is used for all types of skin conditions and it is the finest of all the clays. It is great for treating disturbed skin or acne and it has anti-aging effects on more mature skins. Green clay has a balancing effect for combination skins, it nourishes dry skin and normalises oily skin types.

Green clay aids circulation and lymph flow, so in turn it enables oxygen to speed the eradication of waste products.

A homemade face mask is much better for your skin than a shop bought one that you squeeze from a tube or foil packet and it doesn’t take long to make.

General Face Mask:

100g of green clay

4 teaspoons of cornflower

Mix the green clay and cornflower together and store in a jar. Use around one tablespoon of this mixture to blend with one of the face mask formulas below:

Face Mask for Normal Skin

Combine 2 drops of geranium and 1 drop of bois de rose essential oil together and then use 1 drop of this blend together with:

  • 1 tablespoon of the basic mask
  • 1 teaspoon of water
  • The yolk of 1 egg

Face Mask for Oily Skin

Combine 2 drops of lavender essential oil and 2 drops of rosemary essential oil together and then use 1 drop of this blend together with:

  • 1 tablespoon of the basic mask
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 1 tablespoon of brewer’s yeast

Face Mask for Dry Skin

Combine 2 drops of chamomile essential oil and 2 drops of rose essential oil together and then use 1 drop of this blend together with:

  • 1 tablespoon of the basic mask
  • 2 teaspoons of water
  • 1 teaspoon of almond oil or evening primrose oil
  • The yolk of 1 egg
  • 2 drops of carrot oil

Face Mask for Dehydrated Skin

Combine 2 drops of chamomile essential oil and 4 drops of carrot essential oil together and then use 1 drop of this blend together with:

  • 1 tablespoon of the basic mask
  • 1 teaspoon of brewer’s yeast
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 1 teaspoon of jojoba oil

Face Mask for Acne

Combine 2 drops of chamomile essential oil, 2 drops of lavender essential oil, 2 dropa of patchouli essential oil and 2 dropa of juniper essential oil together and then use 1 drop of this blend together with:

  • 1 tablespoon of the basic mask
  • 1 teaspoon of water

There you have it, natural, holistic home made face masks.

Best wishes with your health and wellness.
