Rose & Yogurt Face Mask Recipe

Gentle Rose Clay Face Mask Recipe

Last weekend I invited a friend to come around for a night of movies, mocktails, and diy beauty pampering.

We put on a film, nibbled on healthy snacks, and sipped fruity non-alcoholic drinks poured into wine glasses – somehow it made them so much more fun than if they were just served in tumblers. Being a producer of handmade beauty products I also have all the fixings for making face masks and that’s exactly how we rounded off the evening.

Rose Clay Face Mask recipe
Mixed up in just a minute or so, we put the masks on and had a giggle over our tasty mocktails and silly comedy. Saturday night beauty bonding…absolutely loved it! Plus we had the softest and smoothest skin after we took off our masks. Winter can be so harsh on our faces and a simple handmade mask and mosturiser can go a long way to keep us feeling our best.

Cleansing face masks are primarily made of clay, which has incredible drawing powers. Mixed with liquid and applied onto the face, clay works to pull oil, dirt, and dead cells from your skin, leaving it smooth and clean. When you use liquids that also have skin-beneficial properties then the mask can help to hydrate, soothe, scent, regenerate skin cells, and promote a healthy glow.

Rose & Yogurt Face Mask Recipe from Lovely Greens - this mask is perfect for normal to dry skin types and for those with environmentally damaged or aging skin #beauty

Rose & Yogurt Clay Mask
Makes one mask
Suitable for normal to dry skin and for those with stressed and/or mature skin

1 tsp (2g) White Kaolin Clay
1/8 tsp (0.25g) French Rose Clay
1 tsp Plain Yogurt
1/4 tsp (1g) Rose Water or make it yourself
10 drops Rosehip Seed oil
1 drop Sandalwood Essential oil
1 drop Rose Essential oil
1 drop Frankincense Essential oil

To make your mask, blend the clays with the yogurt and rose water then add the essential oils. Mix thoroughly and apply to your face and neck. Leave on for ten minute or until it’s dry and begins to crack then rinse it off with warm water and a gentle cleanser. If you’d like to use an extremely gentle cleanser, try my recipe for a copy-cat version of Lush’s Angels on Bare Skin.

Pat your skin dry with a clean towel and apply a light moisturiser if you wish. And if you have any product left over, refrigerate and use it within a week.

 

The ingredients in this recipe help in these ways:

White Kaolin Clay – a standard clay used for normal skin types

French Rose Clay – clay that is a bit more gentle than white and will be less drying. If you have extremely dry or sensitive skin, you may choose to just use the Rose Clay rather than mix it with White.

Yogurt – contains lactic acid which is a natural and very gently alpha-hydroxy acid. That is, it promotes skin cell regeneration

Rose Water – a gentle and rose-scented astringent and toner

Rosehip Seed oil – especially suitable for mature skin, this oil is packed with Retinol (Vitamin A) and helps heal and moisturise aging or damaged skin

Sandalwood essential oil – a moisurising oil that also helps reduce acne

Rose essential oil – a beautifully scented oil that tones and brightens your skin

Frankincense essential oil – an oil used to help reduce the visible signs of aging

    I like diy facial mask and now using facial mask with oatmeal, egg and apple. The recipe is very easy and effective. Ingredients: Apple, Egg Yolk, Oatmeal. Blend these 3 ingredients well. Spread the mixture all over your face. Let the mixture stay for about 20-30 minutes. Rinse it off with pure water. That's all. You can try this recipe.
