I was going through my skin care recipes when I stumbled upon this particular mask to help correct an oily complexion. This recipe is what I regularly used while in college because of how well it worked to banish the shine. Though I have dry skin now, I thought those suffering with the same problem as I was at that time might like to try this recipe to help get their own skin back since it is a fantastic skin degreaser that also lightly moisturizes as it normalizes!
Natural Oil Zapping Mask
1-1/2 tablespoons dry clay
2 egg yolks
½ small ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and mashed
1/3 cup of witch hazel
1 tablespoon of honey
Mix the clay, yolks, and honey together with a fork or your whisk to well combine. Next, add the mashed avocado and witch hazel to the above mixture and stir through until smooth.
Store your mask in a clean plastic container with a lid until you are ready to apply. However, you need to use your mask within a few hours and then dispose of it. (An emptied and clean peanut jar works wonderfully for this purpose.)
When you are ready to use, apply a medium layer of the mask to your clean face, avoiding getting near the eye area.
Since you will look rather hideous, I suggest hiding out for a while or doing this when you have privacy because you will resemble a swamp thing.
Resembling a slimy, swamp creature may be rough on you, but this ordeal doesn’t last long. You just need to wear this mask for about 12-15 minutes and then you can shed that ugly slime and rinse it away with some warm water. Close your pores with a few splashes of cold water and you will feel human again.
When you look in the mirror next, the swamp thing is gone and a gorgeous, healthier face is in its place. You won’t believe how much better condition your skin will be in once you use this mask.
