This is the most involved mask recipe I have tried so far, and it is by far my favorite. This recipe once again comes from “Health and Beauty the Natural Way” by Nerys Purchon. It promises “to rid the skin of impurities and improve sallow complexions.”
Here is the recipe for one use:
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon orange juice
- 1 teaspoon carrot juice
- 1 teaspoon celery juice (from healthy stalks)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon yogurt
- dried milk powder to mix
Just combine all ingredients, and add milk powder to make a paste. Spread on your face and leave for up to 30 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry.
To get the carrot and celery juice, I grated the sticks and caught the juices. So plenty of small chunks got in as well. My milk powder was also granulated so my mask was a bit chunky. Here it is ready to use:
I know it’s gross looking, but it’s an amazing mask. When I washed it off I noticed immediately a big change in my complexion. I am very fair-skinned and sometimes I look unhealthily pale and this mask really did give me a natural golden glow. I will definitely be making it again.
If anyone else tries it, let me know how it goes! Just leave a comment
