Homemade Facial Fridays

Homemade Face Mask

Feed your face the way you would feed your body: never apply anything to your face that you would not eat.  How does your skin look right now?  Scaly or smooth?  Pale or pink?  Don’t worry if the answer is less than flattering at this moment.  These easy to make home facials will perk your skin right up to RADIANT and DEWY!

Homemade Face Masks

For Dry Skin

2 teaspoons quick-cooking oats

1/4 teaspoon ground almonds

1/4 teaspoon grated orange peel

1/4 teaspoon lavender-flower powder

2 tablespoons smashed avocado or yogurt

Mix all the ingredients together and apply the mixture gently to your face with your fingertips.  Let the mask set about 15 minutes and flake off.  Rinse your face with warm water.

Instant oatmeal is an excellent skin exfoliant: oats counteract daily sun damage and replenish the skin with vitamins B and E.  Orange peel balances the PH of the skin and softens it.  Almond powder is a protein-packed exfoliant.  And the healing aroma of the lavender powder makes this a soothing, pleasant mask.

For Oily Skin

1 Tablespoon yogurt (any variety coconut, almond, soy ect.)

1 teaspoon toasted wheat bran

1/4 teaspoon almond powder

1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Mix and apply the mask in the same manner as for the dry skin mask.

Wheat bran is a very effective cleanser, coaxing out grime with ease.  Combined with the cooling yogurt, it makes a gentle exfoliant.  The vitamin C in lemon juice promotes cleansing activity.

Giving yourself a facial at home has never been easier!  Totally naturally and chemical-free!
