Milk, Honey and Egg Face Mask Recipe

photo from the internet

 Ah...the natural face mask!  A healthy glow. Skin feeling clean, soft and fresh!  Right at your finger tips! Or at least in your frig!  I'm going to give you a few great masks recipes to make at home that will leave your face feeling incredible and your purse heavier!   But, first a few tips and thoughts....

     Clean, healthy skin is attainable to all of us, regardless of our age, we can have the radiant glow that comes from healthy skin.    I just turned 50 and it seemed like overnight  my skin changed! Has that happened to anyone else?   I realized my skin looked old.   Wrinkles deepened, dull lifeless skin, patchy, etc.
     I discovered facial masks and determined to take the 15 mins it takes to do one, and found theres no going back!   My face feels fresh and supple again. A facial mask helps soften the skin, removing impurities, toxins, unclogging pores, and helps hydrate and soothe your skin. All skin types and ages are not alike, different masks for different needs, let me share a few.......
       INGREDIENTS     (this recipe will make about two masks)
         1 egg  (full of proteins,vitamins A,D,E ,tightens the pores, softens skin)
         2 TBL powdered milk or whole milk (nourishes skin, lactic acid, hydrates,anti-aging benefits)
     .  1 TBL honey (protects from sun damage, antioxidant, absorbs impurities, antibacterial, great cleanser)

     Simple and oh so nourishing. HELPFUL HINT:  oily or acne prone skin?  Use the egg white. 

     Dry skin?  Use the egg yolk.   Normal skin?  Use the whole egg.   
  HOW:    Start with a clean face.
            In a small bowl combine all ingredients, whisk with a fork or I like to use a hand mixer because it
            comes out fluffier and easier to apply.  Leave on for 10-15 mins or until dry.   You can repeat with
            another layer or rinse after one   .Rinse. Pat dry. Your  face will feel stunning, I promise you!
            Store leftovers covered in refrigerator, use within the week. 

      I did the egg yoke mask this morning , my 28 year old daughter did the whole egg method and my 14

year old did the egg white method.  It was fun doing it together and all of our faces feel really really good!
If you are allergic to any above ingredients please do not use this mask on your face!
Otherwise, try it and leave me a comment!  More great masks on my next post.

Hi Anna,

Well I wanted to share a lite simple reciepe that i found online. Make -up can be very hard and painful to get off if your using water or harsh chemical products. So of course its natural.

Very simple:
1 cups of green tea
1/2 of rice milk ( preferrably Organic)

IWhen I seen this recipe i thought to myslef. Okay i wonder how good this is going to work. Well, after using this facial wash my make-up melted away leaving my skin cleansed, bright, and gave it a glow.

See, the antioxidants in green tea are high, pulling all the impurities out of your face, while the rice milk moisturizes it. I used Dilmah Organic Green Tea which had 2 -3 times more antioxidents than regular green tea. Well, i used 2 bags for 2 cups of water which made the batch very strong and too powerful for my face. So, if you have Dilmah Organic Green tea, use 1 bag for 2 cups of water, steeping for 2 minutes in gentle hot water, and 1 cup of Rice milk.

Afterwards I used a reciepe from you Anna with greek yogurt (which goes a long way) and honey (but I didnt have any honey so I used agave syrup. Greek and regular yogurt is great for your skin because it helps hydrate your skin and absorbs nutrients, all essential to a healthy skin and body.

Agave, Which is related to the aloe vera plant. So safe to assume maybe that there are aloe vera qualities in agave that will be beneficial to our skin. Agave is quite expensive, and honey is more affordable with highier qualities than agave. I had in my pantry for 3 months ( so I used it.)

I mixed about 1 tablespoon of greek yogurt and 1 table spoon of agave/honey. I left it on my face for 10 minutes. I did it with 4 other girl and we all said that we felt a slight stinging sensation on our face. I guess even in nature pain is beauty. However, our face felt moiturized and fresh.

Afterwrad some of us put some olive oil on your face to double moisturize. Premium olive can be tested by tasting it. Sip a little and it should be buttery and not leave a slight burn in the back of your throat. If it burns the acidity is high. However, olive oil in general is safe for your body anywhere you decide to put it.

Thanks Anna

What type of milk do we have to use? Is it fresh milk or others? :)

Anna from Natures Home Spa said...

Nurfatyha Rusydah, I use fresh whole milk. Not fat free milk, as you want the natural fats in the milk, they are great for your skin.

thanks for stopping by, Anna

Add some a few drops of Lime to it. Lime has Vitamin C, which is an amazing anti-oxidant. Also Lime helps tighten the skin and remove some pigmentation.
