Homemade Mango Face Mask

oatmeal and almonds in grinder Randys Homemade Mango Mud Mask

This is the almonds and oatmeal in a small coffee grinder Ė before. (Unlike the mango, I had a lot more almonds, so ate quite a few of those!)

Mixture after blending.† At one point it was not blending well enough so I added 2 tbs. of water.

The mixture smelled a lot like oatmeal but it definitely tasted like mango. The taste was how I would imagine mango baby food to taste.

The mixture seemed to be on the watery side, so the only way I knew to make sure it didnít run off my face was to lie on a towel and then use my hand to grab the mixture and swish it on my face. After lying down for five minutes it seemed safe to stand up.

The most obvious experience I had was that it felt so cool on my face. I was expecting for it to warm up after a while but it never did. Maybe that was the cooling property of mango I had researched previously?

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.......
