Homemade Face Mask Recipes

This website has some great recipes for creating your own face masks and a lot of the ingredients you can find in your kitchen right now! I love how it breaks the recipes down by your skin type.

Here's the one I'm going to try since I have oily skin:

HOMEMADE CLAY MASK FOR OILY OR ACNE PRONE SKIN
Clay masks help neutralize skin. You can pick up clay from any health-food store.

INGREDIENTS:
• A basic fuller's earth clay (if skin is sensitive, French green clay is a good option)
• 1 tsp honey
• water (for a richer mask, substitute half-and-half)
• your favorite essential oil

PREPARATION:
I find it's best to mix 2 parts water (or half and half) to 1 part clay, mixing in a bit of honey.
Add more water (or cream) if clay is too dry.
Add a few drops of the essential oil.
Keep mask on for 15 minutes.
Rinse off with a steaming washcloth (I like to steam my washcloths with a couple drops of the essential oils in the microwave, but make sure washcloth is not too hot).
Tip: This recipe works for dry or normal skin too. Add another tablespoon of honey and add a few drops of essential oils for your skin type.


It's cheaper, healthier, has ingredients that you can pronounce and spell w/o the assistance of a chemist, and GREEN! You GREEN girl! ;)
