Turmeric Mask

My favourite natural face mask has to be this Tumeric concoction.

What you will need:

  • 1 teaspoon of dried turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon on natural yogurt

What it’s good for: This mask is so simple and absolutely fantastic for red marks, spots, dry skin, rough patches, you name it, it’s good for it!

I apply one of these mask’s every week. My skin is so much better for it and it seems to keep my monthly blemishes at bay too. Bonus!

How to Apply:

Apply to clean dry skin with a large make-up brush. Note: Tumeric will stain if it gets on to your clothes and you will have to wash it off with warm water and then a light cleanser to avoid it staining your skin for a day or so.

This mask It gives truly amazing results and if you are prone to acne or have acne scarring then it is the perfect treatment that costs just pennies. I gave the recipe to my young apprentice who suffers from acne and scarring and he couldn't believe the way his skin looked and felt right afterwards and he makes it part of his weekly routine now.


Aspirin Facemask

What you will need:

  • 5 dissolvable asprin crushed in a tiny amount of water
  • 1 teaspoon of honey

What it’s good for: Spots and sore skin. I always use this mask if I have a break-out.

How to Apply:

Crush the aspirin to a fine paste and mix with the honey. Apply with your fingertips or with a brush.

Avocado Mask

I love this mask when my skin in feeling particularly dehydrated.

What you will need:

  • Half an avocado (crushed to a paste)
  • One teaspoon of honey
  • A drop of olive oil

What it’s good for: Dry skin, dehydrated skin, irritated skin.

Because it doesn’t contain a lactic acid, it is a good non-irritating natural facemask. I tend to use this one more in the Summer months.

Sand and Sky

This is perhaps my favourite non-homemade facemask. It is a little drying, so I often massage in a little oil before I apply it. The pot is small and comes with a little brush too. It’s a little messy to use your fingers and it starts to dry fairly quickly too.

What it’s good for: Greasy skin, acne prone skin and to shrink pores.

From Sand And Sky: Detoxes, invigorates, refines and brightens the skin.

Tight Neck and Tight Eye Serum Mask

I know this sounds a bit what on earth...? but I find this stuff an amazing tightening mask. It's manufactured to tighten up the skin around the neck and they also make it for the eye area.

It was purely by accident that I found it did wonders for the whole of my face. I just got carried away one day whilst I was in the bath! I put it onto my face with a: Lets give it a go attitude but didn't expect to see such a great result.

It really firms my skin and makes it feel so soft. Almost like a mini facelift, if only for a few hours.

How to apply:

It has to be applied with the fingertips to clean dry skin (no oil) and then left for around 10 minutes to set. You really shouldn't move your face too much in that time. Yo will end up looking like a wrinkly old person until you wash it off. You must do that with cold water on a flannel or a cloth of some sort. Please note: DO NOT wash with warm water.

Smoother Skin

There are so many ways we can improve our skin tone, appearance of pores, texture and elasticity. I love using all natural remedies as they are cheap and the ones I have listed here are the most effective I have found, and I have tried many I promise you!

I hope all or some of these remedies help in your quest to improve your skin tone and overall appearance. All have been tried and tested by me and I continue to use them all.
