Clay face masks are the ideal beauty treatment when you are looking to pull sebum, dirt, and even bacteria from your skin’s surface and your pores. Using clay masks regularly will lead to tighter and healthier skin and clearer pores without all the excess oil getting trapped and causing other skin problems.
Making Your Own Skin Smoothie
If you would prefer to make your own skin smoothie, there are powders available that you simply mix with water and then apply to your face. If you prefer to have some kind of scent and want to harness even more benefits that can be derived, then you can also add a few drops of essential oil to the mask before applying it to your face.
You can also make a face mask with food items you probably already have around the home like avocado, papaya, banana, egg whites, yogurt, and honey. Take these ingredients, mix them in with the powder, and you have your own skin smoothie for beautiful skin.
Face Smoothie Recipes
The following are just three easy to mix face smoothie recipes you can try out for your next clay face mask.
Papaya and honey are ideal for blemished skin and can help lighten any acne marks you may have while smoothing your skin.
- Clay mask powder
- ¼ of a papaya
- 4 tbsp honey
Mix all the ingredients and apply the mask to your face. Let it sit on your face for at least fifteen minutes before rinsing your skin clean.
Lavender Avocado Skin Smoothie
Another easy clay face mask can be made and utilizes the powerful properties of the lavender essential oil. This mask can effectively moisturize the skin because the avocado can penetrate deep down and help soften and hydrate any dry or flaky patches you may have.
- Clay Mask Powder
- Spoonful of Avocado
- A spoonful of water for mixing
- A few drops of lavender essential oil
Use these ingredients to mix the clay face mask until a thick paste has formed, apply to the face, and rinse the mask off after about ten minutes.
Anti-Aging Face Mask with Honey and Essential Oils
This mask utilizes the clay powder, ground oatmeal, honey, and a few essential oils including Frankincense. This essential oil is valuable for the skin because it acts as a powerful astringent and can help reduce the appearance of large pores.
- Tsp Clay Powder
- Tsp of Ground Oatmeal
- Tsp of Honey
- Tsp Coconut oil or your preferred carrier oil
- A drop of Frankincense Essential Oil
Mix everything together until a thick paste has formed and then apply to the skin. You will want to leave this mask on for at least twenty minutes before rinsing.
