Face masks are super beneficial for your skin. Depending on the ingredients you choose, you can easily create face masks with a variety of benefits. Whether you skin is looking a little dull or you suffer from occasional breakouts, it’s easy to creating a nourishing, brightening face mask.
This recipe I’m sharing today has several power packed ingredients, including:
Like a lot of nature’s goodness, turmeric is another that is not only really good for you (to eat), but also great for your skin. It has anti-oxidant properties and can help combat occasional breakouts.
Yogurt can be used on it’s own as a exfoliating and moisturizing facial treatment. It is great for troubled skin and aging skin. Be sure to choose organic yogurt for your mask. I love using local, raw grass fed yogurt for my masks.
Fuller’s Earth Clay
Fuller’s Earth Clay, I get mine here, is a popular choice for oily skin. It is great for absorbing excess oils and tighten up your pores.
Tea Tree Oil has long been known for it’s effectiveness for treating occasional breakouts and it’s healing properties. This one the first essential oil I tried and one that I wouldn’t be without.
Turmeric can temporarily stain your skin so this is probably a good mask to use before bed. 🙂
And one more note:
This face mask may resemble what you find in the diaper of a healthy, breastfed baby.
But trust me, it’s totally worth it!
