My Latest Favorite: DIY Ginger & Kaolin Clay Face Mask

As you guys may have guessed, I love face masks!

Any kind really, but especially the ones that work miracles to clear breakouts and calm redness as I have really reactive skin.

This past weekend I discovered the miracle that is a ginger face mask!

This ginger mask was great as it really helped clear my pores and had a nice heating effect when left on my face for about 10 minutes while in the bath.

AND it is such an easy diy face mask recipe that anyone can make with very little ingredients and some can be substituted for things you have on hand as that’s all I did as well.

Sooo amazing!

Ingredients:

  • Organic Ginger Powder
  • White Kaolin Clay (may substitute for any clay you have)
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
Directions: Mix 1 tbs of ginger powder and kaolin clay with juice of 1/2 lemon and enough water to form a paste. Apply to clean face and leave on for 2-10 minutes as desired. Rinse with warm water. 
This mask really left my face with a nice glow, noticeable (though likely temporary!) tightening effects, smaller pore visibility, and overnight effects helped to clear and diminish spots and blemishes.
I want to note that you don’t have to use all the ingredients here; the main important one is the ginger powder. All others can be substituted. For instance, if you have no clay on hand you can use uncoated aspirin (acne benefits) or honey (for more moisture). Otherwise you can use any other clay you have on hand. You can use another liquid in place of lemon juice, but I like it for the brightening effects. Other liquids you can use are milk (light exfoliant good for mature skin), apple juice (brightening like lemon, but not as harsh), or you can use just water if you like.
That’s all for now; I hope you enjoy this mask and try it for yourself!
Let me know what effects you get or your favorite mask recipes.
I’m always up to try new ones!
Stay Beautiful
