Make sure you use a clean dry bowl and a whisk as well as a blender or fork to mash your base.
Choosing the right base is the first step for a natural face mask:
Dry Skin Natural Face Mask
Choose a base that is rich in fatty acids like milk, cream, yogurt or avocado.
Add ingredients to this base including eggs, cream cheese, mayonnaise, honey, aloe vera, olive oil, almond, avocado or safflower oil. You can also add rosehip or evening primrose oil for very dry or mature skin.
Acneic Skin and Oily Skin
Use a base of yogurt, coconut cream, avocado, or banana. Bananas are high in potassium which retards acne bacteria growth.
Add honey (also antibacterial), aloe vera, apple, tea tree or lavender oil, turmeric (pinch), basil leaves (crushed), lemon or lime juice (squeeze) or strawberries which are high in acne bacteria fighting salycylic acid.
Discolored Skin Freckles and Sun Spots (Lightening)
Use a base of yogurt, coconut cream, avocado, or banana with mashed cooked carrot and cucumber all of which are naturally lightening.
Add a squeeze of lemon and turmeric as well as apple, papaya or pineapple. Powdered milk also contains lactic acid so can be added to lighten skin.
Use fruits especially tropical fruits (leave on no longer than ten minutes), molasses and golden syrup. You can also add brown sugar to make a light scrub.
Blend ingredients together well and apply to skin gently after allowing to set in the bowl for 5 to ten minutes. Leave on for ten minutes then wash off. If using an exfoliating masks rub on for 2 minutes gently taking care to avoid the eye area before allowing to sit on your skin for another 5 to 8 minutes.
