Did you notice that even as we age, we can still get pimples? Stress, losing weight, changes in our hormone levels, like menopause are all possible skin irritation triggers.
Acne and pimples
Yogurt Clay Mask
Yogurt clay mask is effective for treating acne and pimples.
- 1 tablespoon (15ml) Glacial Marine Clay (Wet)
- 1 tablespoon (15ml) Plain Yogurt
Mix all the ingredients together well. Add enough glacial marine clay powder to make a paste that is workable. The more clay used, the faster the mask will dry and the more it will feel tight on your skin.
Yogurt is reputed to help with hyper-pigmentation, acne and monthly break-outs. However, some people noted that the yogurt mask inflamed the pimple or pushed the pus to the surface instead of having it reduced. Remember to test is on a small patch and use plain yogurt!

Note: Of course, these are age-old recipes that have not been formally tested by the FDA. I’m sure you knew that. We have supplied these recipes as informational purposes only and lay no claims on results. If you have never used essential oils before, it would be best to test these recipes on a small patch of skin to ensure that you will have no allergies or rash. Also do not use essential oils on their own as these are very concentrated and may burn the skin.
