There may not be many benefits to having what people would consider oily skin, but reduced signs of aging can definitely be one of them!
For the rest of us, wrinkles and fine lines are something that we’re going to have to deal with. Although it’s not possible to completely remove the signs of aging – well, at least not be resorting to expensive and painful invasive procedures – we can at least try to reduce them or slow their progress.
The key to this mask is ensuring that the skin gets well-moisturized rather becoming oily. The protein in the egg white helps nourish the skin, while the rose water and green tea provide a gently invigorating experience.
If you want to store this mask for later use, seal it in an airtight container and put it in the fridge. It’ll keep for a few days without problem. You may want to gently warm it before use. The idea here is to get it to room temperature, not to cook it! It just needs to be warm enough that the mask is soft and pliable and doesn’t feel cold when you apply it to your face.
Remember not to let this mask completely dry out – leaving it on for 10 to 15 minutes is about the right length of time. And remove it use a warm face-cloth. When you’ve removed all traces of the mask, you can leave the warm face-cloth over your face for a minute or so. Your skin will feel fresh, soft and – hopefully! – more youthful. And the feeling should last for two to three days.

If you want to take your anti-aging efforts to the next level, we recommend taking a look at the Ageless Body System. It’s a bit more involved than the mud mask above, but has provided amazing results for the people who tried it and followed the method.
And, if mud isn’t your thing, you can always create a natural beauty mask using oats, avocado, and yogurt to restore and hydrate your skin. A mask with these ingredients has naturally occurring vitamins A and E. And contains nutrients and enzymes that help reduce inflammation and balance the pH of your skin.
