Carrot Face Mask

Carrot Face Mask

Easy,  inexpensive and healthy! The  ingredients contain natural antiseptics and antioxidants which kill germs and protect the skin from damaging  free radicals.
Ingredients:
2 medium carrots – powerful antiseptic to kill germ and protect skin with antioxidants. Carrots help protect the skin from free radicals and promote the regeneration of healthy skin cells.
1 Tbsp honey – also antiseptic and reduces swelling
1 Tbsp olive oil – nourishes and cleans the skin
1 lemon – astringent and acidic.  This maintains the acid mantel of your skin which keeps in moisture and keeps out germs.

Directions:

  1. Peal the carrots and steam until soft.
  2. Mash the carrots into a creamy consistency.
  3. Mix in 1 tbsp. of all natural honey.
  4. Stir in 1 tbsp. of olive oil.
  5. Squeeze a few drops of fresh lemon juice into the face mask mixture. Lemon is a natural astringent and will help clean greasy 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.
  6. Use a spoon to drop small amounts onto your hands and gently massage the mask onto your whole face for several minutes.
  7. You can keep it on for an additional 5  minutes.
  8. You can then just wash it off with water in a sink or easier – in the shower.

P.S.  This is all food ingredients to after, any that you don’t use on your face – you can eat!
P. S. S.  If you go to a spa for this, it could cost $40 – $140!

The lemon juice which is acidic when used topically has an alkaline influence internally because of the specific minerals it contains.

  2. Renu November 25, 2012 at 12:41 pm

    Good

  3. chinyere January 19, 2013 at 7:42 am

    Please I nee to know how this can be applied to the face and how long ?

  4. Randy Fritz January 19, 2013 at 9:49 am

    Thanks for asking:
    Use a spoon to drop small amounts onto your hands and gently massage the mask onto your whole face for several minutes.
    You can keep it on for an additional 5 minutes.
    You can then just wash it off with water in a sink or easier – in the shower.

    hi

  6. shameem January 29, 2013 at 7:02 am

    several min. means 15/20 min. right.?

  7. Randy Fritz January 29, 2013 at 10:46 am

    Hi Shameem Correct on the 15-20 minutes. Just be aware though that if you have delicate skin or a very sensitive immune system, even natural, non irritating products have the possibility to create a reaction so just stop if you notice any redness.

  8. Rahul Shitole February 20, 2013 at 4:15 am

    Several min means 4-5 minutes and than keep the mask for 5 additional minutes on your face.. 🙂

  9. Rahul Shitole February 20, 2013 at 4:19 am

    Several min means 4-5 minutes and than keep the mask for 5 additional minutes on your face… 🙂

    Thank you

  11. Archibong April 11, 2013 at 5:47 am

    Must i use mask? Can’t i apply it directly 2 my face?

  12. Nancy April 11, 2013 at 6:08 am

    Mr. Fritz, don’t you wonder how some people even manage to get out of bed in the morning by themselves?
    Thank you for this wonderful cleansing mask recipe.

  13. Jessica April 17, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    Hi, thx alot for the free spa lesson, can I apply it directly on my face without a mask.

  14. Randy Fritz April 18, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    YES you can! I’m not sure what you mean by mask but it could be good joke!
    Thanks for participating!

  15. Amanda April 19, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    How long can you keep this in the fridge for before throwing out?

  16. Randy Fritz April 21, 2013 at 10:02 am

    The carrots are the only thing that will break down but that will be fairly quick. The lemon and honey will preserve a bit. I would say only keep it for one or two day. You will have to then reheat it since the olive oil will thicken.

  17. Lisa Hatchems April 23, 2013 at 9:58 am

    Im sure Archibong didnt know what mask you were talking about. Thank you for the mask recipe. I dif it it works.

  18. Elizabeth arado May 16, 2013 at 2:14 am

    After reheat I can put again in fridge for how long I can put in fridge until finish its no problem…

  19. Maya Mauti July 30, 2013 at 8:52 pm

  22. Joel December 16, 2013 at 8:29 am

    This mask was amazing! The first time I used it my skin was radian and glowing! Absolutely awesome! Left it on for 10 minutes… Soft and oil free skin plus the olive oil moisturized my fine lines! Fantastic! I blended all my ingredients in my ninja to make it smooth and it worked like a charm! If you have oily skin use a tablespoon of lemon juice. If not use a teaspoon…. This was a very instant result product! Wow!

  23. Randy Fritz January 1, 2014 at 10:53 pm

    I glad it worked out so well for you. Thanks for the added suggestions.

  24. saadah January 28, 2014 at 12:13 am

  26. ikenna February 27, 2014 at 1:50 pm

    Can I grind the carrot before adding other ingredients?

  27. debrah April 13, 2014 at 3:53 am

    Is it okay to use..when having pimples..can it reduce acne problems?

  28. Randy Fritz April 13, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    Hi Debrah. Yes this could help.

  29. Tlholohelo April 15, 2014 at 12:40 pm

    Can i use the mask once a week or daily?

  30. Randy Fritz April 16, 2014 at 9:57 am

    Hi! Once a day is fine for one week. Then slow down to once a week.

  31. www.youtube.com April 17, 2014 at 2:09 pm

    Fine way of explaining, aand pleasant post to get facts about my presentation topic, which i am going to present in school.

  32. Ela Bitaj April 17, 2014 at 3:28 pm

    My best friend and I tried this mask and it had great results. My face felt softer and glowing afterwards.

  33. Crystal Arredondo May 9, 2014 at 8:54 am

    I’m very excited to try this, I’m a runner so I am always breaking out. I tired everything. I’m doing it right now, hope it works.
    Thanks

    Crystal

  34. lucy May 21, 2014 at 6:28 am

    is this real? will i have a glowing fine face?

  35. Randy Fritz May 21, 2014 at 10:00 am

    Hi Lucy, This mask can HELP but of course the final condition of your skin depends on where you started from. good luck!

  36. wild stone May 23, 2014 at 12:53 am

    i just want to ask u .. is this mask is good for 16 year boy skin or not ,,,,

  37. Randy Fritz May 23, 2014 at 10:37 am

    Yes it certainly is!

  38. wild May 23, 2014 at 11:17 am

    well what about the carrot i mean how can i convert carrot into powder

  39. Ruth May 23, 2014 at 12:40 pm

    Can this mask be used on the hands (or any part of the body), I have ecezema. Thank you so much.

  40. Randy Fritz May 23, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    Hi Ruth, Normally this can be used anywhere. Ecezema though is a little different from many skin problems. Many health experts think it cause is the circulation, the immune system and the nervous system so a topical application will not necessarily help. Try it on the small area and see how it feels.

  41. Randy Fritz May 23, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    I’m not sure what you mean by powder since you do NOT try to powder the carrot in this recipe. You just blend.

  42. wild May 23, 2014 at 4:35 pm

    ooh .thnxx 😀

  43. Annie May 30, 2014 at 7:40 am

    Pls how regular can one do this? i mean for best result, daily,weekly or how. Thanks

  44. Randy Fritz May 30, 2014 at 8:17 am

    Hi Annie. I suggest you do it daily for the first week and then slow down to once a week. This is assuming that you are getting SOME good results. Everyone is different and each body will react slightly differently to different foods and applications.

  45. haleemah May 31, 2014 at 8:06 am

    Pls can lime be used instead of lemon,cos lime is very common in my area compared to lemon

  46. Randy Fritz June 10, 2014 at 10:33 am

    Yes, lime can be used instead of lemon. Sorry for the delay.

  47. KLETOS June 12, 2014 at 12:26 am

    thanks for the info. I will try it cause I have a oily face

  48. Joseph Mananasi June 15, 2014 at 1:29 am

    Thank you so much for the info. Will try today, as we have a lot of honey, caroys and lemons here.

  49. Iris Ong June 20, 2014 at 5:44 am

    My mask is ready to apply… we will see…:)

  50. Randy Fritz June 20, 2014 at 7:43 am

    I hope you like the results Iris. Good for you for giving home-made natural a try.

  51. Rachel Barnabas July 14, 2014 at 1:31 am

    Hello Randy,
    What if i don’t have olive oil. What can i use instead?

  52. Rachel Barnabas July 14, 2014 at 1:34 am

    Thank you Randy for this amazing post. Please assist, what can i use as an alternative to olive oil

  53. Randy Fritz July 14, 2014 at 9:18 am

    Hi Rachael,
    Coconut oil is very good for the skin. Depending on your room temperature and the temperature of your other ingredients, you may have to warm it up a bit so it was liquid.

  54. Mercy Olowu Benson July 19, 2014 at 9:51 am

    Pls,if rubbed on the body,can it be left for a whole day just like body cream and how can I preserve it so that it will last for a long time just like a real body cream so that I won’t have to mix it every two days?

  55. Randy Fritz July 19, 2014 at 10:46 am

    Hi Mercy,
    No one has ever asked this particular question but NO you can’t leave it on for a whole day on your body. Body creams are made of pasteurized ingredients that will not go bad for a long time. These ingredients, particularly the carrot will not last long and therefore should be refrigerated after making.
    Face masks are normally kept on for one hour maximum because the ingredients can interfere with the skins normal breathing.

  56. Eric August 6, 2014 at 11:07 pm

    How often can/should you do this? Once a week, once a month, or everyday?

  57. Randy Fritz August 7, 2014 at 9:43 am

    Hi Eric, You can put the mask on daily for 3 or 4 days if you wish and then once a week as long as you like it.

  58. ryan oconnor August 12, 2014 at 1:16 pm

    does this help get rid of acne?

  59. Randy Fritz August 13, 2014 at 11:07 am

    It can HELP in the sense that it has slight antibacterial properties and generally supports the skin BUT there is no guarantees because there are many factors known and unknown that cause acne. Proper cleansing of the skin is critical.
    A diet high in glycemic index foods and dairy products is now linked to acne, according to a new study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

  60. enam September 6, 2014 at 8:04 am

    pls where can i keep the rest of the mask before using again for the rest of the week

  61. Randy Fritz September 9, 2014 at 7:50 am

    Once mixed this mask will only last 2-3 days in the fridge. Since there are no preservatives in this as in commercial products, you don’t want to risk putting spoiled food on your skin.

  62. helena September 13, 2014 at 7:10 am

    Any advice on dark armpit

  63. enam September 16, 2014 at 10:45 am

    thanks,pls can i use anointing oil for the olive oil. l dont know the difference

    Thank You.

  65. Jesusa October 27, 2014 at 5:14 am

    please which oil can be used in place of the olive oil

  66. Randy Fritz October 27, 2014 at 9:59 am

    Hi Jesusa. Coconut oil and almond oil can be used instead of olive. You would have to warm up the coconut oil probably. Let me know how it works.

  67. Relly December 16, 2014 at 11:36 pm

    Can I use lime if I do not have lemon?

  70. khan February 8, 2015 at 9:52 am

    respected sir i am 30 years old male sir my beared hairs gone white 30 % is there any treatment to grow black pl help i am worried.

  71. Randy Fritz February 8, 2015 at 12:09 pm

    Dear Khan. Every man’s beard will go white eventually. There is no specific nutrition that deals with white or greying hair. IF you have gone prematurely white because of very bad health or a very bad diet, it sometimes happens that individuals can change back to black again IF they start to eat very healthy generally, detox and get enough movement in their lives. This only happens in rare cases. In most cases it is better to accept that one is naturally aging and enjoy the beauty of your age.

  72. Olamide February 17, 2015 at 7:42 am
