Olive oil was referred to as “Liquid Gold” by the famous Greek poet Homer. If you are what you eat, what would happen if you consumed “Liquid Gold” daily? Extra-virgin olive oil (cold-pressed) is the best fat to use as a salad dressing. Do not use for cooking. It has a low smoke point and heat makes it susceptible to oxidative damage. Olive oil has so many health benefits I include some every day when I eat my salad. Make sure you are using real olive oil. Have you heard of the olive oil fraud? Find out Which Olive Oil to Buy.

Find out Which Olive Oil to Buy
Lemons’ health benefits are immense. To begin they are acidic to the taste but are alkaline-forming in the body. In fact, they are one of the most alkaline-forming superfoods; this makes them great for balancing a highly acidic condition in the body. Also, they are full of many health benefits.
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.
- Peel the carrots and steam them until they are soft.
- Mash the carrots into a creamy consistency.
- Mix in 1 tbsp. of all-natural honey.
- Stir in 1 tbsp. of olive oil.
- 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 your skin tends to be oily, add up to 1 tbsp. of lemon juice.
- 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.
P.S. This is all food ingredients so after, whatever 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.

several min. means 15/20 min. right.?
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.
Several min means 4-5 minutes and than keep the mask for 5 additional minutes on your face.. 🙂

Must i use mask? Can’t i apply it directly 2 my face?
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.
Hi, thx alot for the free spa lesson, can I apply it directly on my face without a mask.
YES you can! I’m not sure what you mean by mask but it could be good joke!
Thanks for participating!
How long can you keep this in the fridge for before throwing out?
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.
Im sure Archibong didnt know what mask you were talking about. Thank you for the mask recipe. I dif it it works.
After reheat I can put again in fridge for how long I can put in fridge until finish its no problem…
can it apply to the body skin? or specific just for face? thanks
so much for this bt jst one thing my friend has terrible pimples can it also help her
Let us know how it works.
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!
I glad it worked out so well for you. Thanks for the added suggestions.
I wl surely give it a trial I love using lemon thy are greatbwhen it comes to cleansing thanks a great deal
hi can I ask if this is good for acne treatment?
Can I grind the carrot before adding other ingredients?
Is it okay to use..when having pimples..can it reduce acne problems?
Hi Debrah. Yes this could help.
Can i use the mask once a week or daily?
Hi! Once a day is fine for one week. Then slow down to once a week.
Fine way of explaining, aand pleasant post to get facts about my presentation topic, which i am going to present in school.
My best friend and I tried this mask and it had great results. My face felt softer and glowing afterwards.
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.
is this real? will i have a glowing fine face?
Hi Lucy, This mask can HELP but of course the final condition of your skin depends on where you started from. good luck!
i just want to ask u .. is this mask is good for 16 year boy skin or not ,,,,
Yes it certainly is!
well what about the carrot i mean how can i convert carrot into powder
I’m not sure what you mean by powder since you do NOT try to powder the carrot in this recipe. You just blend.
Can this mask be used on the hands (or any part of the body), I have ecezema. Thank you so much.
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.
ooh .thnxx 😀
Pls how regular can one do this? i mean for best result, daily,weekly or how. Thanks
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.
Pls can lime be used instead of lemon,cos lime is very common in my area compared to lemon
Yes, lime can be used instead of lemon. Sorry for the delay.
thanks for the info. I will try it cause I have a oily face
Thank you so much for the info. Will try today, as we have a lot of honey, caroys and lemons here.
My mask is ready to apply… we will see…:)
I hope you like the results Iris. Good for you for giving home-made natural a try.
What if i don’t have olive oil. What can i use instead?
Thank you Randy for this amazing post. Please assist, what can i use as an alternative to olive oil
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.
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?
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.
How often can/should you do this? Once a week, once a month, or everyday?
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.
does this help get rid of acne?
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.
pls where can i keep the rest of the mask before using again for the rest of the week
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.
Any advice on dark armpit

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.
Can I use lime if I do not have lemon?
Please I want know if it is suitable for all skin type.
Please,does it helps for wrunkles too? Is it also good firming face?
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.
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.
