DIY Glowing Skin Mask With 3 Ingredients (Plus Carrageenan Info)

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Food Science Matters, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #foodsciencematters 


One of the best things about the Internet is the ability to get lots of information super fast. But not all that we read is true. We all know this, but yet every single day I see false information being spread blindly on social media over various subjects without taking a moment to research. It is one of my biggest pet peeves.

I see this all the time in the health and beauty world. It creates misinformation spread by fear. And today I want to help share some insight on this, separating facts from myths. Much of it is driven by accusation instead of facts. Instead, let’s try gearing people towards science, towards facts.

Let’s talk about ingredients. Foods and products can be made with many ingredients. One such ingredient is carrageenan.

Have you heard of it? Carrageenan is a natural food ingredient that is comes from seaweed. It can be found in foods like yogurt, cheese, salad dressing, and more. Carrageenan can also be found in beauty products like toothpaste, shampoo, face wash, and makeup.


Carrageenan has been declared safe to be used in food and products by regulatory authorities in every region of the world, including the United States, Europe, China, Japan and Brazil. It is useful because it gives texture to food, for example, yogurt. Today I wanted to share with you a quick facial mask that uses yogurt! Yogurt has lactic acid, which is so good for the skin. You can make this recipe in minutes! 





You’ll need:
1/2 c plain Greek yogurt

1 tbsp ground plain oatmeal (should be closer to a powder consistency)

½ tsp honey, warmed

Add yogurt, then honey

Add oatmeal

Apply to a clean, dry face.

Leave on for around 15 minutes. Wash off and pat dry skin.

This mask deep cleans and softens the skin. You can use this once a week.

    1. haha read my schedule and you'll wonder the same. I'm not sure what post you read, but if that's in your honey, oatmeal, or yogurt, I'd be very concerned. It's not in food!!!
