Easy DIY Skin Cleansing Face Mask for All Ages

Diy Face Cleansing Mask

It’s time to let our skin shine this summer! I love the feeling of soft, smooth skin and I was thrilled when my daughter shared one of her favorite DIY face mask recipes with me.  

I may have an occasional blemish here or there, but my main focus is to help my skin in its maturing state. This recipe is great for all ages, from teens to mature adults (I think that is what I call myself now at almost 50!).

Why Are These Ingredients Beneficial?

Bentonite clay pulls out toxins, chemicals, and even heavy metals. The clay also helps provide oxygen to cells and has an alkalizing effect. Bentonite clay is rich in beneficial minerals, such as magnesium, silica, and calcium.

The alpha hydroxyl acids in apple cider vinegar help keep skin pores open and dissolve dead skin cells. Moreover, apple cider vinegar treats occasional blemishes, restores the natural pH of your skin, and minimizes the appearance of pores.  

When mixed together with other beneficial, skin-supporting essential oils, you can easily create a mask that can safely and effectively be used for maintaining healthy skin. I love that! It’s effective, inexpensive, and great for the entire family.

Melaleuca Alternifolia Essential Oil (also known as Tea Tree) has long been valued for its cosmetic benefits, especially for its natural skin-cleansing benefits. Tea Tree’s intrinsic properties cleanse away dirt, toxins, and dead skin, giving you healthy-looking and feeling skin.

Lavender Essential Oil is very helpful for using to keep your skin in a healthy state. It’s balancing and gentle on the skin, promoting relaxation too.

Both of these essential oils come in the Premium Starter Kit too!

DIY Face Mask with Essential Oils and Clay
Here is what it looks like as it is drying. It isn’t pretty, but it is effective! Please do not pin THIS picture on Pinterest. :-)

Combine the bentonite clay in a small bowl. Please do not use a metal utensil or bowl when working with bentonite clay. Add in apple cider vinegar to make a spreadable paste.

Add 4 drops of essential oils and stir. Apply to the face for 10-15 minutes.

To remove the mask, wash your face with warm water and a washcloth. I especially love applying this and then taking an Epsom salt bath as well. The perfect relaxing evening – and all DIY!

Use up to three times a week and enjoy vibrant skin for summer!
