Carrot Face Mask

| October 1, 2011 | 31 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.

    Thanks for asking:
    Use a spoon to drop small amounts onto your hands and gently massage the mask onto your whole face for several minutes.
    You can keep it on for an additional 5 minutes.
    You can then just wash it off with water in a sink or easier – in the shower.

  4. shameem says:

    several min. means 15/20 min. right.?

  5. Randy Fritz says:

    Hi Shameem Correct on the 15-20 minutes. Just be aware though that if you have delicate skin or a very sensitive immune system, even natural, non irritating products have the possibility to create a reaction so just stop if you notice any redness.

  6. Rahul Shitole says:

    Several min means 4-5 minutes and than keep the mask for 5 additional minutes on your face.. :)

  11. Jessica says:

  12. Randy Fritz says:

    YES you can! I’m not sure what you mean by mask but it could be good joke!
    Thanks for participating!

  13. Amanda says:

    How long can you keep this in the fridge for before throwing out?

  14. Randy Fritz says:

    The carrots are the only thing that will break down but that will be fairly quick. The lemon and honey will preserve a bit. I would say only keep it for one or two day. You will have to then reheat it since the olive oil will thicken.

  15. Lisa Hatchems says:

    Im sure Archibong didnt know what mask you were talking about. Thank you for the mask recipe. I dif it it works.

  16. Elizabeth arado says:

    After reheat I can put again in fridge for how long I can put in fridge until finish its no problem…

    This mask was amazing! The first time I used it my skin was radian and glowing! Absolutely awesome! Left it on for 10 minutes… Soft and oil free skin plus the olive oil moisturized my fine lines! Fantastic! I blended all my ingredients in my ninja to make it smooth and it worked like a charm! If you have oily skin use a tablespoon of lemon juice. If not use a teaspoon…. This was a very instant result product! Wow!
