Basic Facial Masks for Men

Facial Masks are a great way to give your skin a quick burst of whatever it is craving.  These three recipes are simple to prepare and are designed for three common skin types and can be easily adjusted to accommodate substitutions or extra ingredients.  While these mask recipes were created with men in mind, they can certainly be used for women’s skin as well.

For Dry Skin
2 Tablespoons Fine Oatmeal
1 Tablespoon Whole Milk Powder
1 Tablespoon Honey Powder
1 Tablespoon Rose Petal Powder
1 Tablespoon Organic Rosehip Oil
1 – 2 Teaspoons Roman Chamomile Hydrosol

For Normal Skin
2 Tablespoons Moor Mud or White Kaolin Clay
1 Tablespoon Yellow Sandalwood Powder
1 Tablespoon Coral Calcium
1 Tablespoon Honey Powder
1 – 2 Teaspoons Carrot Seed Hydrosol

For Oily / Acne Prone Skin
2 Tablespoons Dead Sea Mud or Multanni Mitti Clay
1 Tablespoon Moroccan Rhassoul Clay
1 Tablespoon Neem Powder
1 Tablespoon Honey Powder
1 – 2 Teaspoons Lemon Balm Hydrosol

To prepare any of these facial masks begin by combining the dry ingredients in a small bowl.  Mix the dry powders well, then add any water based liquids, followed by oil based liquids.  When adding the liquid ingredients make sure to add just enough to create a smooth paste.  If you add too much liquid the mask will be too thin to apply to the face.

Dampen the skin with a clean towel moistened with warm water.  Apply a thick layer of mask to the face, avoiding sensitive spots such as the eyes and mouth.  Allow the mask to dry for 10 to 20 minutes before rinsing away.  Apply toner or moisturizer as needed after rinsing the mask. Print Bar 2
