How to make your very own natural face mask :)

So in order to cater to my motto of having a natural mind , body, spirit, and HAIR.....I wanted to share some cool things to keep our beautiful faces fresh and pampered for the day. I have a recipe for most skin types. I hope you all enjoy;)


Prep Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 2 minutes
  • 2 egg whites, separated from the yolk and placed in a bowl
  • 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt (I like Greek yogurt)
Separate the egg whites from a couple eggs and place them in a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of yogurt (do not use flavored yogurt!). Mix them up and apply to face. Leave on face for a few minutes then rinse face in warm water, followed by a warm washcloth. 

II. Oily, Acne-Prone Skin
Banana Honey Mask
  • 1 banana, preferably ripe (you can keep ripe bananas in the freezer. Let it thaw before using)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • An orange or a lemon
Mix the banana and honey together.
Add a few drops of juice from an orange or a lemon.
Apply to face for 15 minutes before rinsing with a cool washcloth or a steaming warm washcloth.

Combination Skin
 Honey Rose Petal Mask
  • Optional: 6 fresh rose petals
  • 2 tbsps rosewater
  • 1 tbsp natural yogurt, room temperature (not lowfat or non-fat)
  • 1 tbsp runny honey (to get honey runny, you can warm it in a microwave for a few seconds).
Soak rose petals, then crush them in a bowl.
Add the rosewater, yogurt and honey.
Mix well and apply to the skin.
Leave on for 10 minutes.

Natural exfoliant for all skin types Mix a tiny amount of brown sugar with olive oil in your palm. Once it turns into a paste, massage into your face. Cure chapped lips by mixing brown sugar with honey and massaging into lips.

Ok now time to enjoy that fresh face of yours and wow them with that I'm beautiful on the inside and out and I KNOW IT mentality:)
