DIY : Anti Ageing Carrot & Milk Mask

This carrot face mask is perfect for oily skin and helps prevent wrinkles. I love adding milk powder to get a fairer effect after hot sunny day outside. Trust me, you will feel your skin become firm immediately because carrots help protect the skin from free radicals and promote the regeneration of healthy skin cells.
The ingredients:
Carrot (peel and steam until soft)
Milk Powder
Optional - 1 capsule of pure collagen 
Peel the carrots and steam until soft. Mash the all the ingredients into a creamy consistency. The more milk powder you add, the more water is needed. Mix the ingredients wisely and don’t get it become too runny.
Gently wash your face and neck with warm water and pat dry. Apply the mask evenly to your face and allow it to set for 15 minutes. Rinse your face and neck again with warm water and pat dry.
This is optional. You can mix in 1 tbsp. of honey, or of olive oil. Olive oil is the perfect skin care product since it helps nourish and clean the skin at the same time, leaving your skin supple and glowing. This is good for dry skin. Or, you can squeeze a few drops of fresh lemon juice into the face mask mixture. Lemon is a natural astringent and will help clean greasy skin. The amount of lemon you should add depends on your skin. If your skin tends to dry easily, add only 8 to 10 drops; if you skin tends to be oily, add up to 1 tbsp. of lemon juice. :) Happy Diwali and Happy holiday, everyone..!


  1. Hi! I'm glad to discover your new blog. Do I disturb?
    Interesting cream of yours, I heard about the poliphenoles present in blueberries, the betacarotene in carrots and whatnot. I signal you I'm practicing face exercises, and exfoliation in the morning via, you ever heard about this, pumpkin sponge. A sponge made of the. network of wires present into the pumpkins.
    And ehm.. are you back to tweezing ;)?
    You know I have a philosophy about an harmonic beauty, that about helping eliminate body toxins and, well... dead skin flakes. Do you also have a particular diet?
    Thanks in advance for advice and conversation and good going. ;)

  2. Hi Anto, hugs!!
    Yes blueberry excellent for antioxidants. Sometime I switch the ingredients - Papaya, cucumber, potatoes etc, depends on what I have in kitchen.
    Pumpkin sponge..? I think it's very similar to loofah. I just have facial brush every time I wash my face, in circular motion from chin to forehead. Nothing special.
    Tweezing..? You know I'm trying to avoid that..Me still with threading once a month to maintain my brow.
    I don't have any particular diet (I love food)currently, but I do exercise 5-10 minutes every morning daily. Don't get surprise sometime I had dinner twice, or rather we call it supper. :) Happy New Year, Anto :)
