DIY Face Mask

***Note: I am not a dermatologist. These are just some face mask that I have experimented with and work well for me. 

It’s that time of year again (well in the northern hemisphere). The weather is getting colder and for me that means changing up the skin care routine. I’ve already switched my soap to Oat Oatmeal, which contains oatmeal, almond milk and oat oil. Oat oil is a highly emollient oil that is rich in antioxidants and tocopherols, and leaves a silk like feel on the skin.

I continue to use my activated charcoal soap twice a week to keep the acne at bay.

I’ve also been playing around with a couple DIY face masks. I have combination skin and my cheeks tend to get a little dry in cold weather. So I crushed some lavender buds, for exfoliation, and added oatmeal. I use Aloe Vera juice or water as the liquid and combine to form a paste.

1 teaspoon oatmeal

1/2 teaspoon lavender buds (crushed)

The other mask that I made combined french green clay and activated charcoal to absorb oil and lemon peel powder for exfoliation and clarification. I use water, Aloe Vera juice or even milk as the liquid and mix to desired consistency.

I leave both mask on for about twenty minutes, then I re-wet the mask and gently work them over my skin in circular motion and rinse off.  Sometimes I add essential oils.

I look like I’m going duck hunting but that’s ok, both mask work well for my skin.
