Fresh Yeast Face Mask

I use face masks ... occasionally. I prefer to buy them in a store, because I'm a lazy ass. =) But there are some masks that don't acquire to much time or ingredients.

Here's one of them. Do you like the smell of fresh yeast? This might sound weird, but I love it!

Here's the recipe:

* Don't put too much milk in there. You don't want your paste to drip all over from your face.
* You can also use brewer's yeast instead of fresh one and full fat yogurt instead of milk

Apply to the face and rinse after 10 minutes with warm water. To close your pores, end washing your face with cold water.

Have you ever seen ''deer caught in the headlights'' with yeast mask on? LOL =)

Thanks for looking!


  1. WOW - I never knew you could use Yeast like this. Move over Pizza Base, Hello facemask!
    Do you tend to break out after a face mask? Do you break out after this one? And how often would you do this? (ie, is this fairly harsh or a gentle type mask). Sorry for the questions!!!
    Love the pic tho - nails look great with the black and white!

  2. =) It's as simple as that. I do break out after a bad face mask. Not after this one though. I like to use different face masks... Like once (not more than twice) a week. I think it wouldn't harm if you used this mask every week. But don't leave it on for too long, OK? =)

  3. I've become so lazy when it comes to facial care, but since I'm on the fast laine going th-th-(I can't even say it), it wouldn't do me any harm to use some masks... :D Well, I'm going to try this one and report about effects.

    I have one for you Sasha. My Grandmother used to use this. Mash two or three ripe strawberries in a bowl mix 2 Tablespoons of water, mix and finish mashing strawberries. In a circular motion gently rub the strawberry mash into your skin. Let sit on skin for 15-20 minutes and rinse.
    I do this at least twice a month. It smells yummy too.

  5. Please, do that! =) I'd like to hear from others too. =)

  6. Oh, thanks for the recipe! I'll try this, but I'll have to get me some strawberries first. I think I'll have to wait until summer though. =)

  7. eek! i love that picture! black and white with color on your nails! amazing! I looooove homemade masks, I use buttermilk though when I make mine. The acid helps tighten pores, and my grams always said buttermilk balances out pale skintones. Idk if thats true but thats what i've always used

  8. Thanks, Ange-Marie! =) Could be true about the buttermilk and acid... =)

  9. Hahaha...I'm afraid I'd eat this before it made it to my face!

  11. Ive done a mask with Strawberries as well, but it also called for honey and plain yogurt...The honey act as as an antiseptic and the yogurt helps draw out oils.

    i actually don't know what the plant is but i see it everywhere and mesew shnugally likes eating it just like he likes eating other stuff in the garden
    tom doesn't like it...

  13. One more thing we have in common. =) I love the smell of fresh yeast. Mmmmm...

  14. Great to know! *takes notes* Thank you, Jackie!

  15. I used a mask my Mother told me about. You beat an egg white lightly and spread on your face. It really tightens on your skin. Makes your skin feel so soft. Don't ever use a fruit that your allergic to on your skin as a mask. It would be the same as if you ate it, you would get a reaction. I also used old fashioned oatmeal with honey and spread that on your face. You smell like a cookie and your skin looks nice.

  16. I'll try it in the future. Thanks for sharing! =)

  17. OMG, I ADORE the smell of fresh yeast, to the extent that when I was a little girl my mom forbid me to eat it and I told her that when I grow up I would buy boxes and boxes of it to eat lol

    Interesting. I stopped using face masks years back as I would always break out. Maybe it's time to try something new?:)
