Homemade Mango Face Mask

Homemade Mango Face Mask

I was researching mangos for a recent article on their health benefits and I came across the idea of a mango “mud” mask.

Knowing that the only skin care product that has touched my face in years is shaving cream, I thought, if I can do that, anyone can!

Another incentive was that many people didnít believe that I actually put Dr. Oz’s homemade banana conditioner in my hair some time ago. There is no mistaking that this is mask on my face (see the next page for proof).

This was the mango I used. It was the only ripe mango I had and my daughter wanted to eat the other half and I wanted to eat a little myself so I ended up using only about 1/3 of a whole mango.

Sounds like a good one. I usually steam my face (over a bowl of hot water) before applying masks and find that makes a huge difference, especially if you add some aromatherapy oil while steaming.

Thanks, seems fairly effortless. I can't wait to be ruggedly handsome. ;)

I grind up almonds with oatmeal and add honey as a mask. The honey and oatmeal are moisturizing and the almonds exfoliating, I add a dash of water too. Get creative! use pumpkin, banana, avocado.......
