Home made natural face masks (face packs)

Although it takes some time out of our busy day, we still believe that a face mask, or face pack as some refer to it, is one of the best facial treatments that you can have, for a variety of reasons - from cleansing, stimulating, assisting anti-ageing, improving skin tone etc.

The idea of an essential oil mask is not a new idea and a few very expensive rejuvenating clinics have been using them for some time.

On this page, we have included five simple face masks that we thought you may find of use:

Although clay masks are thought to be drying, they contain great benefits for the skin, and can be used very successfully in your beauty routine.

Green clay has become the talk of the beauty world, but if it is not available in your area, you can still use the old dependable white kaolin powder.

As a base you can mix either green clay or kaolin powder (reconstituted with either floral water such as rosewater or pure distilled water) together with a little cornflower and a quarter teaspoon of powdered raw oats.

Before applying the mask, make sure that the skin is cleansed properly and dried by patting it with a towel.

After applying any of the masks, leave on for at least 15 minutes while relaxing, and wash off with tepid (lukewarm) water and pat the skin dry. Apply moisturizer.

Normal skin mask Home made face masks

For a normal skin, mix the clay/kaolin, cornflower and oats together with one beaten egg white and floral water. Add 1 drop geranium oil and 1 drop neroli oil. Mix well to form a paste and apply.

Dry skin mask facial treatments

For a dry skin, mix the clay/kaolin, cornflower and oats together with one beaten egg white and floral water. Add 1 teaspoon wheatgerm oil or evening primrose oil plus 1 drop camomile (Roman or German) oil and 2 drops carrot seed oil. Mix well to form a paste and apply.

Oily skin mask face masks

For an oily skin, mix the clay/kaolin, cornflower and oats together with one beaten egg white and floral water. Add 1 drop lavender oil and 1 drop frankincense oil or juniper berry oil. Mix well to form a paste and apply.

Problem skin mask face packs

For a problem skin, mix the clay/kaolin, cornflower and oats together with one beaten egg white and floral water. Add 1 drop lavender oil, 1 drop tea tree oil and 1 drop neroli oil. Mix well to form a paste and apply.

Rejuvenating skin mask Home made face masks

For a problem skin, mix the clay/kaolin, cornflower and oats together with one beaten egg white and floral water. Add 1 teaspoon jojoba oil, 1 drop camomile oil, 1 drop frankincense oil and 1 drop myrrh oil. Mix well to form a paste and apply.

If you have never used essential oils, and are prone to allergies, we suggest that you perform a skin patch test before using any of them.
