Facial Masks and Body Recipes

Harmony and I love love LOVE making homemade masks and scrubs.  She looks totally adorable with them on too!!  I'll have to take pictures next time so you can see what we look like!

Most of the ingredients you probably have lying around the house are the ones that are easiest to convert into a facial mask or body scrub.  These are the ingredients that I personally find are most useful for combination to oily skin.  ..And they're yummy!

Plain Yogurt
(Cool and Refreshing)

Oatmeal Ground
(Makes excellent scrub and I use oatmeal FOR EVERYTHING.. just


Virgin Coconut Oil
(For extra dry skin and moisturizer)

Extracts and Oils
(For Fragrance)

..Egg whites, I personally don't use these but they're excellent for oily skin types!

*Adding sugar or salt creates a body or a facial scrub.

You can combine any of these ingredients to make a personalized mask that best benefits your skin type and your ingredient preference.  I would recommend using them 1-2 times a week.  A lot of these ingredients work as a buffer to remove dirt, oil, and dead skin so using them more might cause irritations.

Have fun and happy relaxing!
