Skin Care Tip of the Day: Homemade Facial Masks

Facial masks are a great way to treat skin specific concerns, and many great facial masks can be made from a few simple ingredients from your pantry! Here are the recipes of some of our favorite masks to treat oily, combination, dry, and sensitive skin.

Oily Skin Mask: 
6 non-coated aspirins
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon fractionated coconut oil 
Crush aspirins into a fine powder and mix into a paste with lemon juice. Add fractionated coconut oil and mix well. Apply to entire face and leave on for 5-10 minutes. Rinse well and apply moisturizer. DO NOT USE IF PREGNANT, ALLERGIC TO ASPIRIN, OR CURRENTLY ON AN ASPIRIN REGIMEN.

Combination Skin Mask:
2 tablespoons Greek Yogurt
1 tablespoon warm honey
5 drops lemon essential oil
1.5 tablespoons ground oatmeal
Mix ingredients until well mixed and rub into face for 3 minutes. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse well. Follow with hydrating moisturizer.

Dry Skin Mask:
1 chopped carrot (steamed and soft)
1/2 of an avocado
1 tablespoon warm honey
1/2 tablespoon fractionated coconut oil
5 drops frankincense essential oil
1 egg yoke
Mix in food processor or blender for 20-30 seconds, or until smooth. Apply to face and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse well and apply hydrating moisturizer.

Sensitive Skin Mask:
1/2 cup plain oatmeal (blended into fine powder)
1 tablespoon fractionated coconut oil
1 teaspoon warm pure organic honey
1/2 banana
1/3 cup organic milk
Blend oatmeal in food processor into fine powder. Mash banana and combine all ingredients into small bowl. Mix until creamy and apply to face. Leave on for 10-15 minutes.
