The BEST ever DIY face mask

I’ve tried my fair share of DIY face masks involving all kinds of things.. from oatmeal, to raw eggs, to honey.

I’m SERIOUS y’all. This one beats any face mask I’ve ever tried, DIY or store bought.

It’s just 3 ingredients + Essential Oils (the EOs should be specific to your skins needs).

  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Bentonite Healing Clay
  • Raw Honey

*Grab a jar big enough to mix and store it in– I mixed mine in a bigger jar then moved it to my smaller jar to store it. Also do NOT use a metal spoon– use wood or anything that’s not any kind of metal, (because the Bentonite clay).

To make:

  1. Choose how much you want. One time use or enough to use weekly for awhile?
  2. •For 1 time use use 1 Teaspoon of Honey, 1 Teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar, & 1 Teaspoon of Bentonite Healing Clay + 2-4 drops total of Essential Oils •For 8-12 uses use 1/8 cup of each ingredient + 15-21 total drops of Essential Oils.
  3. First combine Honey, ACV, & Bentonite

healing clay & mix well. Then add your essential oils! I always make a big batch, then use 6-8 drops of each oil & pick 2-4 (usually 3) specific oils.

4. Apply to a clean, mostly dry face 🙂

You put the mask on, let it dry– and while it’s drying it’s doing SO MANY amazing things for your skin! By the time it dries & hardens completely & you wash it off, you’re rinsing off all the toxins in the clay (that it’s drawn out), excess dirt & oil, & dead skin 🙌🏼 it leaves your skin feeling SO good. It makes your face slightly red right after rinsing it off but that is only temporary and isn’t anything to be alarmed about! 🙂

Suggestions for what oils to use:

-Oily skin: lemon , orange, bergamot, lime, geranium

-Dry skin: lavender, sandalwood, cedarwood, roman chamomile, rose, myrrh

-Combo skin: lavender , frankincense, orange, patchouli, bergamot, jasmine

-Aging skin (we could all use this – prevention is best, after all!): lavender, frankincense, copaiba, tangerine, sandalwood, rose, patchouli

-Troubled skin with acne: Purification, lavender, Frankincense, Tea Tree, Melrose, Geranium(great for hormonal support), Orange, Patchouli

**I only use and recommend using Young Living Essential Oils on the skin, because I only trust YL’s quality & safety! You can read more about why in my post Why I chose Young Living. Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar (on the skin) -GREAT toner because of its antibacterial properties (used to treat all kinds of skin conditions related to inflammation)

-helps balance PH levels on skin

-helps remove dead skin

-helps unclog excess dirt & oil from pores

Benefits of Honey (on the skin) -it’s healing & hydrating– it seriously leaves your skin feeling SO soft!

-antimicrobial properties help it fight acne

-helps repair damaged skin & kill off germs that can infect & inflame pores

Benefits of Bentonite healing clay (on the skin) -shrinks & unclogs pores

-helps control overproduction of sebum (white/blackheads are produced due to an excess of sebum, which causes blocks within the hair follicles on the skin)

-draws toxins out of skin (the clay has a very strong negative electrical charge–toxins have a strong positive charge & the clay bonds to them.

-makes skin sooo soft (with the honey & EOs your set for the softest skin of yo life 🙌🏼)

-gives you a DEFINITE glow 💃🏼

-exfoliates

-helps even out skin tone

-reduces appearance of scars
