The All-Natural Face Mask that Actually Works!

Posted by on May 8, 2013 in beauty | 19 comments

When I was a teenager my sister and I were obsessed with face masks, picking up a new brand or sample nearly every time we went to the store. We were sub-consciously convinced that they were the answer to all our beauty woes since we both had oily, acne-prone skin (and still kind of do).

However, I always hated that the masks were harsh and often contained ingredients that really irritated my skin. Plus, they never really provided noticeable results.

 

Food On Your Face

 

Well, today I have a natural remedy to share. Actually, it’s one that my natural beauty-loving friend Ashley shared over on her blog Never Homemaker (cute name, huh?).

I made it the apple pie face mask for the first time about a month ago and LOVED it. It tightened my skin, seemed to tighten and refresh it, and gave it remarkable texture. It was like a super-power all-natural face mask made of nothing but food!

Since then I’ve made it several times and have been dabbing a little on my face here and there right out of the shower or before bed. Friends, I’m hooked. I think you should be, too.

 

Apple Pie Face Mask

 

Find the exact recipe over at Never Homemaker, but all you’ll need is a banana, apple cider vinegar, oats and cinnamon!

Ashley does a great job at outlining the benefits of each ingredient for our skin, which gave me even more confidence that it not only felt like it was working, it was actually working.

 

Apple Pie Face Mask Ingredients

 

Since trying this mask it’s the the only one I’ve used since! But it has me wanting to try and experiment with all other kinds of natural masks to beautify my skin. In the meantime, however, I’m very happy with the results this mask has provided!

If you have a favorite homemade mask recipe, please share! I’d love to know.

  1. I love using strawberries in my homemade face masks. They’re a natural source of salicylic acid. I also like including salt or sugar to exfoliate. I’m definitely going to have to try this apple pie face mask!

  2. Pretty girl. Glad you liked the mask. Thanks for the shout.

  3. oooh looks tasty…

  4. Haha! My sister and I did the SAME thing! And funny enough, now we also make our own with food! Too funny :)

    And whatever you’re doing – keep it up. You’re gorgeous! ;)

  5. I’ve tried this mask twice already and it works wonderfully! My skin feels so conditioned and smooth. Thank you!

  6. P.S. I forgot to mention that I used cooked oatmeal instead of raw so that it’s thicker and if I’m not mistaken, absorbs better. :)

  7. Hey, I emailed you about the Conscious Clenase…not sure if you got the email ? But hope to hear from you. Can you email me? So appreciated! Thanks.

  8. That sounds like a great mask! I don’t treat myself to things like that very often. Think I have all of that on hand too, so just better give it a try sometime this week. ❤ Thanks Dana!

  9. I stumbled across your blog after seeing your natural face routine on pinterest , and I’m obsessed I think you are absolutely wonderful! Very inspiring indeed. I’m just recently learning about all the bad stuff that’s added to food and skincare, I’ve been doing heaps of research but your blog by far is my favourite and most inspiring , Your food looks divine I have a very sweet tooth and find it difficult to cut out all the sweet treats but your recipes made me think I CAN do this. I tired the oil cleanse already and I’m obsessed my skin has never felt so soft, So thank you Dana, I will forever be a fan

  10. Hi! This is good and wonderful, thanks for sharing a simply remedy for those who wanted to look great and bet this is really good for the skin specially to the face and you really love what you have done. adelaide finger food is looking forward for more information and i’ll love to read about it..

    Thanks!!

  11. Me and my cousin tried this mask when we saw it on pinterest and it actually burned and irritated our faces. We took it off and it looked literally like we fell asleep at the beach and got a horrible sun burn. We think it might have been the apple cider vinegar which we put 1/2 a cup in. It would have been helpful if you put the exact measurements for all the ingredients.

  12. Can’t wait to try! Thanks so much for sharing!

  13. didn’t read through to see if anyone posted this already but whatever. if you haven’t already, do this one! it’s all i do now, and i’ve tried a good amount in my life.

    calcium bentonite clay + raw apple cider vinegar.

    sometimes if my face is sensitive at the time, this mask will make my face pink, so i will use water and no vinegar. try it out!

  14. Thanks, this post has got me in the mood to be experimental. But are different mask recipes really effective for different purposes e.g someone mentioned masks for healing acne scars? Raw apple cider vinegar and bentonite clay from Hanna.. yes I’ve done that but also feel more comfortable with water.

  15. Hello there! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I am sure to try this and I’m gonna share this information too with my friends in Finger Food Catering Sydney. I hope to see some of your natural face masks again. We will be looking forward for it. Have a nice day :)

  19. It took a bit of navigating for me to find the mask recipe on the Never Homemaker site, so here is the link directly to the page that has the exact recipe for this face mask in case others have trouble finding it as well! :)
