Helpful Hints:

  1. Excess face mask mixture can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. When you're next going to use the face mask , allow it to reach room temperature first. If you're refridgerated face mask starts smelling weird, toss it in the trash.
  2. Use a ripe avocado and mango to make the face mask for easier mashing or blending. Freezing or thawing the fruits also makes it easier to mash into a pulp.

Much like avocado, banana and honey, mango contain a lot of moisture, which when applied topically, preserve moisture in skin cells, keeping them hydrated. If you suffer from dry skin or combination skin, try using this mango face mask recipe to hydrate your skin and make it look health and lustrous. This deep treating mango face mask uses honey, a natural humectant; yogurt, a nourishing superfood and mango pulp. Let's discover the benefits of honey and yogurt for skin:

Ingredient
Role in Face Mask
Honey
Natural humectant. Locks moisture into skin cells. Contains antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal properties that destroy acne causing bacteria. Soothes inflamed acne and skin inflammatory conditions. Gently moisturizes as well as exfoliates skin.
Yogurt
Packed with B-vitamins, lactic acid and zinc, yogurt nourishes, hydrates and moisturizes skin. Probiotic yogurt contains live cultures that kill off bad bacteria and other germs on skin's surface. Yogurt softens rough skin and reduces acne.

Top Tips:

  1. When extracting the mango pulp, ensure that you do not add in any mango peel into your face mask mixture. Mango peel contains urushiol, an enzyme which may irritate skin.
  2. Use probiotic, plain unsweetened and unflavored yogurt for your skin. Greek yogurt can be used. Flavored and sweetened yogurt can cause skin irritations and even rashes.
  3. The honey used for this face mask should be raw honey. Make sure the honey you're going to use on your face is organic to avoid irritations.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon mango pulp
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon yogurt

Directions
In a small mixing bowl, combine the ingredients well.

Using clean fingertips, apply the mango face mask onto your clean face in a circular motion.

Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

When the face mask dries up completely, use a warm washcloth to remove it.

Rinse off with cold water. Pat dry with a soft towel.

For smooth glowing skin, whip your mango pulp and ground oatmeal together to make an excellent exfoliating face mask. Oats have a mild abrasive texture which helps slough off dead cells from the skin's surface, moisturizing and softening skin. The mango pulp will smoothen rough skin and help fade skin discolorations and dark spots. Check out the indepth benefits of oatmeal for skin:

Ingredient
Role in Face Mask
Oats
Gentle exfoliator. Sloughs off dead cells from skin. A natural absorbent which soaks up excess sebum from skin, reducing oily skin. Promotes blood circulation when used as a face scrub which leads to healthy skin cells.

Top Tips:

  1. Do facial steaming before applying the face mask to open up pores and allow the mango face mask to sink deep.
  2. Gather your hair away from your face into a ponytail and protect your hairline by wearing a headband.
  3. Wear an old t-shirt to prevent the mask from dripping onto your clothes.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon mango pulp
  • 2 teaspoons ground oatmeal

Directions
Combine the above ingredients thoroughly in a small mixing bowl.

Onto your clean face, gently slather the mixture in a circular motion.

Let the mango face mask penetrate deep into your pores.

When the time is up, rinse off with warm water first, then cold water to close off pores.

      Great ideas! I have been looking around for a healthy mask without chemicals. I once tried a mask with buttermilk which was also nice as a moisturizer.
