Did you know that you can make a very effective facial masque at home with a few common items from your refrigerator and/or cupboard? Actually in many ways this is better than what you may purchase in a store or Spa. Some Spa’s actually make similar products on their own to use on their clients. Think about it…if you use something from home it is much fresher and many times with more “active” ingredients than something you may find in a jar with or without preservatives (natural or unnatural).
There are many items that you can use in an at home face masque. I will just be talking about a few of them. So here is a list of the things that I chose to use in this particular masque I made….
1. 1 TBSP Organic unfiltered Coconut Oil
2. 1 TBSP Unfiltered Raw Honey (filtered may be used, however raw is much better do to the enzymes in it)
3. 1 Tsp Cinnamon
4. 2 TBSP Plain Yogurt (full fat is best)
5. 1/4 Cup Oatmeal ( ground in a blender)
You may add milk or more yogurt to desired consistency.
First, grind up your oatmeal (1/4 cup or more if desired) in the blender into a powder. Put the oatmeal into a bowl and add your honey (about a Tablespoon or more if desired).
You can add your other ingredients in any order desired, measuring is not really necessary, just think about what you desire more in your masque…Example, Add more Honey if you want hydration and exfoliation from enzymes, more yogurt for acne and irritated inflamed skin etc.
Some additional add on’s….Raw milk or milk powder, Sea Salt (may be added for exfoliating with in the shower), Brown Sugar, Almond Oil, Sesame Oil.
