lemon for clear skin

Argan Oil is a very versatile and nourishing ingredient that can boost any DIY recipe. In this post, let us learn a few face masks that use Argan Oil.

Argan Oil Skin Lightening Mask

Skin lightening is a concern for many. That’s one reason why bleaching and chemical peels are a rage with celebrities and commoners alike. Besides, skin blemishes and scars are a constant worry for many. What if facial masks can lighten skin and reduce blemishes?


Argan Oil – a few drops
Greek Yogurt – 4 Tsps.
Lemon– 1 or 2
Honey – 2 Tsps.


In a mixing bowl, squeeze the lemons to get the juice.

De-seed and add yogurt, mix well.

Now, add honey and Argan Oil.

Combine all the ingredients for the facial mask.

Yay, you’re done. Isn’t it very simple?

Massage the mask after cleansing your face and patting it dry. You can use this mild cleanser, we prepared earlier.

Massage in circular motion, leaving out the eyes and mouth for about five minutes.

Let it sit for about 10 – 15 minutes.

Wash off and pat dry.

Follow up with a moisturiser for restoring moisture and shine, especially if you have dry or sensitive skin.

Tweaking the Recipe

If you have sensitive skin, reduce the lemons and increase yogurt.

If you can’t use lemon juice, use potato juice instead.

Exfoliating Argan Oil Mask

Exfoliation is a very important part of skin care routine, since it helps eliminate dead cells and clean off dirt and grime from the skin surface. It also helps clear clogged pores and ensures your skin stays healthy.


Argan Oil – a few drops
Egg White – 1
Rock Salt – 2 Tsp.
Milk – 6 Tsps.


In a mixing bowl, break open the egg and use a spatula to remove the yolk without any mess. You can also use the egg separator that’s out in the market currently, if you want to make things easier.

To the egg white, add milk and use a blender or whisker to beat it.

After beating it well, it should form a paste like consistency.

In a blender, coarsely grind the rock salt. Now, add the ground salt and argan oil.

Stir once and your mask is ready!


Cleanse your face and neck, pat dry.

Now, apply the mask evenly on your face and neck.

Massage the mask in circular motion with very less pressure. Salt can cause abrasions if you are too harsh!

After massaging for a few minutes gently, let it sit for a good 10 – 15 minutes and wash off.

Pat dry and follow up with our Argan Body Oil, or use our Argan Body Lotion. Moisturising post exfoliation is very important, as ignoring it can accelerate skin ageing.

Tweaking the Recipe

Vegan or don’t like egg whites? Or probably egg whites don’t go well with your skin? Have a sensitive skin? No problems, substitute egg whites with coarsely ground oatmeal.
