A Purifying Facial Mask Using Essential Oils


A good skincare regimen is not complete without a weekly purifying facial mask. Sure, most facial cleansers do a fine job of removing oil, dirt and makeup residue but not comparable to facial masks in getting rid of impurities stuck deep down in pores.

People with oily and problem skin know this very well and many have taken the initiative to include this step in their routine.

Those with considerably healthy skin should not shun this once-a-week indulgence, either, because it is effective in preventing common skin woes like pimples, whiteheads and blackheads.

Facial Mask and What They Do

There are many types and uses of facial masks. A quick trip to a beauty store can overwhelm you with tons of brands and variants so itís important to know what you want to achieve and what your skin condition is prior to choosing a facial mask.

Purifying is a basic mask but you can find masks that also promise to keep skin hydrated, detoxified and firm. A good tip to determine whatís best for you is to check the label and see what essential oils are used. Lemongrass, jasmine, rose and lavender are just some of the most popular oils found in facial mask formulations.

Pick up a good aromatherapy book so you can learn about essential oil properties. Lemongrass oil, for instance, can provide relief to skin inflammation while lavender fights bacteria that cause acne.

You see, these oils are not only prized for their scents but also for their cleansing, moisturizing and healing properties. A combination of essential oils is not impossible to find in facial masks.

Jasmine and coconut oil, for example, make an awesome combination in purifying and moisturizing skin. Rose oil is actually a favorite in facial masks but mostly blended with honey and milk.

If you want to save some money or you happen to be a fan of DIY, a homemade facial mask is a good option. Itís inexpensive, fun and relatively easy to do. It also assures you that you are not putting any harmful chemicals on your face.

Many recipes are available online for different types of skin. Find out what your skin needs and get ready to raid your kitchen for ingredients like fruits, veggies, honey, egg, nuts, milk, oatmeal and even cocoa!

Prepare a bottle or two of essential oils that you like. You wonít go wrong with rose, lavender, jasmine and lemongrass.

Perhaps one of the most effective recipes for a purifying facial mask using essential oils is a drop each of lavender and lemon oil mixed with four drops of geranium. Add six teaspoons of hot water and just enough kaolin until it forms into a smooth paste. This recipe is so easy to do that you can do this in five minutes or less.

However, keep in mind that your homemade facial mask should be used within two hours so make only what you can use for the day.

Anyway, just in case youíve made to much, you can be used for other body parts
so give your knees, elbow and back some TLC too!


Life Never Smelled So Sweet!
