Minty Facial Masks
What you will need

1 Tbsp fresh mint leaves, chopped

1 Tbsp plain yogurt

1 Tbsp White Kaolin Clay

This simple mask is made with pureed fresh mint, plain yogurt, and gentle Kaolin Clay.  The lactic acids in yogurt gently exfoliate the skin while the Kaollin Clay draws out toxins and dirt that can clog pores and endanger your complexion.  Fresh Mint gives this mask a cool, refreshing aroma that will leave you feeling blissfully refreshed.

In a small mixing bowl, combine Kaolin Clay and Plain Yogurt.  Mix the ingredients until they become smooth, then transfer them to a blender or food processor.  Add the mint leaves, and blend until the leaves have been finely minced.  Remove the mixture and transfer it to a clean container.  Refrigerate the mixture for up to three days, then discard it. 


Apply a liberal amount of the mask to your clean face.  Wait 15 - 20 minutes before rinsing with clean, tepid water.

What You'll Need

1 Tbsp Oats, ground

2 Tbsp Milk Powder

1/2 Tbsp Honey

10-12 Mint Leaves

1" piece of cucumber peeled, seeded and grated

In a bowl, add all ingredients. Muddle ingredients in mortar and pestle until all ingredients are mixed well and smooth. Apply on the face and let it set for 10 minutes.  Scrub skin gently in a circular motion. Remove mask with lukewarm water, towel dry.


Have fun!
