How to Use Amla Powder for Skin as a Face Mask

Hello all~

Prayers today that your day is filled with prosperity and your creative ideas come to fruition! Your value is beyond reckoning. Nothing stands in your way!

One of my favorite at home face mask is an Amla Powder face mask. This inexpensive mask works wonders for cleaning my pores by removing the grim of the day, reduces pore size, while tightening and brightening my skin resulting in the most amazing healthy glow. I purchase my Amla powder locally for $1.99 for 100grams! (If you need help with getting Amla in your neck of the woods, let me know.)

What to do:
Mix 1-2 tablespoons of Amla Powder with warm water to create a paste. With an application brush, apply the paste to your clean face in an upward and outward motion (against gravity always)
Leave on for 15-30 minutes and rinse off to reveal amazingly clear skin!

Amla is used quite often in Indian Ayurveda. Its known for its rejuvenating powers. Amla or Indian Gooseberry fruit comes from a small to medium sized woody tree, with gray bark, reddish wood and many tiny closely set leaves. The flowers are greenish yellow and fruits are rounded, pale yellow and fleshy with 3-sided seeds. In India, Amla is considered sacred and respected as a symbol of good health. Amla has one of the purest forms of natural Vitamin C, 20 times higher than orange juice.

Check out my YouTube video on how to mix and apply the face mask.

For thicker, darker eyebrows, apply the Amla Powder mixture on your eyebrows as well! Interesting how the same stuff has different results. It darkens and thickens your eyebrows while at the same time brightens your skin!

As with anything that you apply to your skin, there is the possibility of an allergic reaction, although it rarely occurs. To check for your own skins sensitivity, test the mixture on the inside of your arm and leave for 10 minutes. Wash and wait for an hour for a reaction. As with any face mask application, avoid the sensitive skin around your eyes and mouth.


  1. Can't find the Amla in powder form so easily where i am. Had to improvise. I will be up that way this wknd. Where should I go?

    1. Jic you still haven't, you can order it on ebay.and its free shipping. The 9.99 is really the best deal.and amazingly, the stuff really works.ive applied it to my hair twice, and im about to use it as a face mask.it stays on face for 25-30min, and hair,30-45, min.

  2. Hi KHor! I would suggest that you order your Amla from www.hennasooq.com. She ships from Maryland and Canada and has really fast shipping! I used to get the Hesh Amla Powder from my local Indian Produce store, but am now a huge fan of the Organic Amla powder sold on HennaSooq.com and would highly recommend it.
