purifying mask recipe
by Jeanna Suber-Ray
Dry or powdered masks have become a popular choice for those who prefer skincare without preservatives and with organic or food grade ingredients. If you haven’t yet discovered the joy of powdered masks, here’s a recipe for a mask you can make at home. These masks are great, and when activated with water can nourish or balance a number of skin concerns.
Ayurveda Purifying Mask
1 teaspoon chickpea flour (can substitute finely ground oatmeal)
½ teaspoon triphala powder
¼ teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
⅛ teaspoon turmeric* (optional: can be a bit messy or stain. Use milk and/or honey to minimize this)
Activate with water, rose toner, or other boost depending on your skin needs. You can adjust the recipe as needed to manage any dosha specific concerns. Mix to form a semi smooth paste. Apply to clean skin. Find a peaceful place to rest and close your eyes gently. Allow the mask to sit for 5 – 15 minutes. Remove gently with a warm cloth. Rinse the remainder from skin and follow with toner, serum and moisturizer.
Note: This recipe will yield 1 to 2 applications. Remaining mask can be stored or refrigerated (depending on additional ingredients added) and brought to room temperature for future use. Feel free to add additional boosts as needed.
