This homemade face mask recipe is made using Brewers Yeast, which is extremely rich in vitamin B. It therefore makes an excellent ingredient when added to a face mask or other facial treatment.

Brewers Yeast can also be very good at tackling wrinkles when used on a regular bases (about once a week is good), and it is suitable for all skin types so adding a teaspoon to any face mask will give it a great nourishing boost.

This homemade face mask recipe also contains wheatgerm and vitamin E, so it is particularly good for reducing thread veins, wrinkles and blotching.

Brewers Yeast Face Mask Ingredients

1 egg yolk for dry or normal skin or 2 tablespoons of egg white for oily skin

1 teaspoon wheatgerm oil

1 teaspoon brewers yeast

The contents of one vitamin E capsule

Method

Place all ingredients in a bowl and beat well together.


Spread the treatment over the face and leave for about 20 minutes.


Rinse the mixture off the face with warm water then splash your face with cold water for a finishing rinse.


Added extra wheatgerm oil makes an excellent moisturiser so for an extra boost rub a little into the skin after using the treatment.

Suitable for all skin types

    I have viewed so many different homemade face masks but I’ve never really tried one. But brewer’s yeast is new to me. This is the first time I’m reading about it. My view is by the time you purchase all of the necessary ingredients, you have spent the same amount that you would have spent on an actual store-bought face mask.
    Even then, it’s only good for a single use.

    I’ve been using a face mask made by Face Masque Bar. http://facemasquebar.com – It’s one of the clay variates. The cost isn’t bad at all. They sell them for $18. Apparently you can find coupons quite easily. Anyway, I like it because it cleans my face very well and leaves it feeling moisturized. I also like that it’s organic, since I am an organic nut!

    I’ve been using brewers yeast face masks for 20 or 30 years. I’m 50. I mix the powder with water to a loose paste. Put it on my face, throat and chest until it starts to break off. Then I rinse it off usually in the shower. Immediately after your skin will likely be quite pink and maybe open pored. Within a few hours it will be back to normal but much smoother and softer.

    By the way, I have mature, dry, sensitive skin.
