This anti-aging yogurt face mask recipe is suitable for all skin types but it’s especially nice for those of us trying to fight the appearance of aging. Because yogurt contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid that dissolves dead skin cells, the use of yogurt in a face mask can help to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles as well as fight breakouts.

My anti-aging yogurt face mask recipe contains all natural ingredients that help to moisturize both aging and/or sensitive skin while also helping to prevent acne and premature aging. It can also help to calm irritated skin and reduce discoloration. Another plus? It’s incredibly easy to make!

And, because my yogurt face mask recipe is a dry mask, it has a much longer shelf life than a wet mask would.

Ingredients:

 1 oz. bentonite clay (acne prone skin) or 1 oz. Rhassoul Clay (sensitive or dry skin)
.5 oz. yogurt powder
.5 oz. rose kaolin clay
.5 oz. marshmallow root powder
.25 oz. corn silk powder
1 Tablespoon calendula petals
1 mL (about 20 drops) frankincense (Boswellia Serrata) essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out all of the dry ingredients into a medium sized glass bowl or 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup.

Whisk dry ingredients together until thoroughly mixed.

Now, measure out the frankincense essential oil using a graduated plastic transfer pipette.

Add the essential oil to your yogurt mask mixture a drop at a time whisking as you go.

Once the essential oil has been evenly distributed throughout the mask you can package your yogurt face mask into the container(s) of your choice.

Pictured here are a 9 oz. clear straight sided glass jar with silver metal lug cap – this yogurt face mask recipe will fill this jar about halfway full – a 2.3 oz. clear glass thick wall cosmetic jar with black lined cap and a plastic test tube with a cork stopper.

To use simply combine about a Tablespoon of the dry face mask with enough milk, water, honey or a carrier oil of your choice to form a paste. Then apply to freshly cleansed skin avoiding the eye area. Leave on 3-5 minutes, then rinse and gently pat dry.

Follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer. (Right now I’m using Michael Todd’s Blue Green Algae Balancing Toner that I discovered via my Birchbox subscription and Body Merry’s Retinol Surge Moisturizer.)

If you’d like to make my yogurt face mask recipe to sell, then you’ll need to label your product according to FDA guidelines. If you are unsure about labeling laws then I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

These natural clay cleansing bar recipes are soap free and contain ingredients that are not only kind to skin but also help to prevent acne! My friend, Bambi, joined me in creating these clay cleansing bar recipes. I formulated my recipe with bentonite clay and activated charcoal for my combination acne prone skin. Bambi created hers for normal but maturing skin. You can make both for your ever changing skin or simply make the one that best fits your skin type!

We used a Crafter’s Choice Basic Guest Round Silicone Soap Mold for our clay cleansing bars. Each recipe yields three bars. So you can double your favorite clay cleansing bar recipe to make six bars or make both recipes to fill your mold completely. Once you have your mold, you’ll also need a digital scale as well as graduated transfer pipettes if you’d like to add essential oils to your clay cleansing bars.

Clay Cleansing Bar Recipe for Maturing Skin

Clay Cleansing Bar Recipe for Maturing Skin

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2.3 oz. kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
2 oz. rhassoul clay
.8 oz. sea clay
.25 oz. refined shea butter
.35 oz. jojoba, argan or rosehip seed oil
.3 oz. hemp seed oil
.95 oz. Mountain Rose Herbs’ witch hazel extract

Instructions:

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the shea butter. Melt in a double boiler or at 40-50% power in the microwave in a glass Pyrex measuring cup.

Once the shea butter has melted weigh out the carrier oils and stir into the melted shea butter. If your oils are cold you may need to gently reheat the mixture until it’s liquid again.

Next, weigh out the witch hazel extract and stir into the oils.

If you are adding any essential oils, measure them out using a graduated transfer pipette and stir into the melted shea butter and oil mixture. Set aside.

In a separate glass container weigh out and combine the clays and the activated charcoal if applicable. Mix well. If you are using bentonite clay, you do not want to use metal utensils for mixing.

Once you’ve thoroughly mixed the clays, slowly mix into the melted shea butter/oil/witch hazel extract mixture. You may need to wear gloves and mix with your hands as it’s going to be very thick and almost dough like.

Once you are sure all the ingredients are thoroughly combined, press the clay cleansing bar mixture into the cavities of your mold. Each of these clay cleansing bar recipes will yield three guest sized bars.

Now set the mold aside in a safe location to allow your clay cleansing bars to fully harden.

After several days you should be able to unmold your clay cleansing bars. Gently press them out of the mold’s cavities. If they don’t seem to want to come out intact, you may need to wait a little longer. (Humidity can slow down the drying time for these.)

Your clay cleansing bars are now ready! Package and label as desired for storage or gifting. Or if you are making my clay cleansing bar recipes recipe to sell, you’ll need to label your bars appropriately to meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

To use your clay cleansing bars, simply run the bar of your choice briefly under water then massage onto your face. Repeat the process as necessary until you’ve covered your entire face. Once the clay on your face has dried, gently rinse and pat dry. Then follow with your favorite moisturizer or serum!

Be sure to store your clay cleansing bars in a cool, dry location away from water and humidity to extend its shelf life. Wasn’t that easy?!
