Today I’m featuring our first installment of “Ask the Expert”. Micki from Atlanta, GA asked what natural ingredients she could use as a mask for her oily skin.
Thanks for the question Micki. Masks are a great way to keep oily skin under control and looking its best. The Cream Cheese Lemon mask is great for oily skin. The lemon pulls excess oil from skin while the cream cheese keeps skin soft and supple without depositing any oil. I recommend using it once a week.
Fresh natural ingredients from your kitchen work just as well as any fancy formulas you can purchase. Be sure to do a patch test on a small area of skin before applying to your face in case of any potential allergic reactions.
Cream Cheese Lemon Mask
1/2 lemon (peeled and pureed)
3oz cream cheese (preferably organic)
Mix together until you have a creamy paste. Apply to clean skin for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Moisturize as normal.
