Carrot Face Mask

| October 1, 2011 | 56 Comments
Easy,  inexpensive and healthy! The  ingredients contain natural antiseptics and antioxidants which kill germs and protect the skin from damaging  free radicals.
 
Ingredients:
2 medium carrots – powerful antiseptic to kill germ and protect skin with antioxidants. Carrots help protect the skin from free radicals and promote the regeneration of healthy skin cells.
1 Tbsp honey – also antiseptic and reduces swelling
1 Tbsp olive oil – nourishes and cleans the skin
1 lemon – astringent and acidic.  This maintains the acid mantel of your skin which keeps in moisture and keeps out germs.

Directions:

  1. Peal the carrots and steam until soft.
  2. Mash the carrots into a creamy consistency.
  3. Mix in 1 tbsp. of all natural honey.
  4. Stir in 1 tbsp. of olive oil.
  5. Squeeze a few drops of fresh lemon juice into the face mask mixture. Lemon is a natural astringent and will help clean greasy skin.  If your skin tends to dry easily, add only 8 to 10 drops; if you skin tends to be oily, add up to 1 tbsp. of lemon juice.
  6. Use a spoon to drop small amounts onto your hands and gently massage the mask onto your whole face for several minutes.
  7. You can keep it on for an additional 5  minutes.
  8. You can then just wash it off with water in a sink or easier – in the shower.

P.S.  This is all food ingredients to after, any that you don’t use on your face – you can eat!
P. S. S.  If you go to a spa for this, it could cost $40 – $140! 

The lemon juice which is acidic when used topically has an alkaline influence internally because of the specific minerals it contains.

    Hello Randy,
    What if i don’t have olive oil. What can i use instead?

  2. Rachel Barnabas says:

    Thank you Randy for this amazing post. Please assist, what can i use as an alternative to olive oil

  3. Randy Fritz says:

    Hi Rachael,
    Coconut oil is very good for the skin. Depending on your room temperature and the temperature of your other ingredients, you may have to warm it up a bit so it was liquid.

    Pls,if rubbed on the body,can it be left for a whole day just like body cream and how can I preserve it so that it will last for a long time just like a real body cream so that I won’t have to mix it every two days?

  5. Randy Fritz says:

    Hi Mercy,
    No one has ever asked this particular question but NO you can’t leave it on for a whole day on your body. Body creams are made of pasteurized ingredients that will not go bad for a long time. These ingredients, particularly the carrot will not last long and therefore should be refrigerated after making.
    Face masks are normally kept on for one hour maximum because the ingredients can interfere with the skins normal breathing.
