Youthening Mask Formula

This magic mask formula calls for only two ingredients, but the combination will help to smooth and soften your skin, giving your face a fresher, more youthful appearance.

Good for all skin types, including troubled skin, this easy formula is great for use before any special occasion, or as a weekly skin-nourishing boost to help your skin look as young and vibrant as possible. Here is the formula:


2 teaspoons flax seeds
Just enough water to cover flaxseeds
1 tablespoon Brewer’s yeast
More water as needed

1. Allow the seeds to sit in the water until a gel is formed. (If you’re in a hurry, boil the seed and water mixture until the seeds burst and the gel forms. Allow to cool.)

2. Add the Brewer’s yeast and more water if needed to make a soft pasty gel.

3. Spread the mask over a clean face and allow to dry, then rinse with tepid water.

Flax seeds are suppose to be a good source of Omega 3 (to eat). I buy the brown seeds, put in a cup with OJ until seeds are soft, then drink. Will try this facial as well; thx for the post.

Thank you, this sounds great. Is it possible to use flax seed oil instead of the seeds (I have some flax seed oil in my fridge). Many thanks for your reply.
