Our readers' tips - Yeast facial mask for oily skin

Yeast facial mask is often used for oily skin because yeast is excellent in absorbing all the excess oil. As the result, the skin is still moisturized but not greasy. An alternative use is for the prevention and reduction of acne.

Tooma sent us this yeast facial mask for oily skin


  • 1 tablespoon active yeast (used in cooking)
  • 1 fresh lemon squeeze
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of yogurt


Mix all ingredients together to get a muddy paste, not too liquidy and not too thick.
If the mask becomes thick keep adding lemon or yogurt. If the mask is too liquidy add more yeast.
Apply on face and neck, leave on until it fully dry's out.
Then, in circular motion, scrub to remove the mask all over face.
When removed, rinse face with warm water and with cotton pad cleanse face with rose water.

Thanks Tooma
