How to Amp up your Amla Face Mask

Morning Dolls and Kens!

Hope your day is amazing thus far and wishing you blessings and prosperity this day!

For those of you who read my previous post on Amla Face Mask, you probably know the basics of Amla as well as its benefits!  Have you tried the Amla face mask?  Do you like it?.....
Well, if you've tried the Amla face mask and love it like I do, I have a way for you to "up the ante" with your mask!

Amla cleans deep into the pores, removing dirt and grime from the day as well as brightens your skin tone as it polishes your skin along the way.  In addition to your basic Amla mix of 1 teaspoon of Amla Power and enough warm water to turn it into a paste, try this: 

 

Lemon Juice and Amla Face Mask:

What you need:
1 Teaspoon of Organic Amla Powder
Enough warm water to create a thick paste ( apx. 1/2 teaspoon)
1/2 fresh lemons' juice

What to do:
1.)  In a bowl, blend the 3 ingredients until a nice paste is created.
2.) Using a mask application brush, brush the mixture onto your face in an upward and outward motion (always defy gravity people...), avoiding your eyes and the delicate skin under your eyes and around your mouth.  
3.) Let the mixture sit on your face for 15 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water.  BONUS: As the mixture softens when washing it off, gently rub it into your face in an upward and outward motion to remove any remaining impurities as you rinse.

If you've read my previous post regarding The Power of Lemons when used on your face, you will know of all the great benefits of lemons! (There are several other great uses of lemons as well!  Search this blog to find them.) 

By combining the Amla Power and the fresh squeezed lemon juice to create a face mask, the mixture will  (i) aid in instantly brightening your face, (ii)  improve skin tone, (iii) remove acne scars and age spots with repeat use, (iv) deeply clean, (v) act as an antiseptic to rid skin of bacteria that can cause acne and (vi) shrink pores! 

Questions? Will you give it a try?

  1. Hi!

    Yesterday, I applied my amla paste to my face (without the lemon) for the first time. I was very amazed the the results! My face never felt so smooth, even my husband noticed. I was wondering; how often can I apply this to my face? Daily or weekly?

    Thanks!

  2. @leetah1_99 -- that is wonderful! I'm so happy you had great results! I love amla :)
    Since Amla is acidic, I would suggest use only one a week. Also---Be sure to come back for the contest that starts tomorrow. I will be giving away Organic Amla Powder as part of the prize pack!
