I used this mask since early teenage years, it's something my mom and grandma always did. This is the mask which addresses every possible skin problem and skin type. It improves the overall condition and appearence of skin- smaller pores, clearer complexion, evens out, tones, brightenes, moisturizes etc.. I use it at least 2x a week, with a diference in preparation. One way is with milk and rosehip oil (very moisturizing) the other way is with water and calamine lotion (clearing and oil control). Leave it on for 45 min and wash with lukewarm water.

Good, there's a spot for this. A friend online started chatting with me about skin and she recommended a yeast face mask with milk. I never heard of such a thing but I figured why not, I love masks. So I tried it. I just pour a bit of dry yeast (the little beads) into a small dish and add a few drops of milk. It takes a little while for the yeast to break down and you do need enough milk but not *too* much. Just a few drops just so it's wet enough but not drippy liquidy wet. You'll figure out the balance after a few uses. Apparently the yeast and the milk have properties which are beneficial.

After it's dissolved, you apply it to the face. I even put it closer to my eyes than I do with other kinds of masks, just not so close that it gets in. I have a fan brush that's literally for painting that I bought at the craft store since I didn't want a too flimsy face fan brush. Mine is much smaller than the highlighting brushes, but stiff enough and still super soft. I use it for masks in general and it's perfect for this. I'm sure it's not necessary but I like it. This will smell a lot like, well, yeast. It also dries VERY stiff and you'll have a harder time moving your face than with a regular green mask. After it's stiff, you can wash it off with warm water. Just let the water absorb on it for a second before squinting your eyes too hard or making your 'face washing face' or the dried parts will pull on your skin. Like a total RB face. A wet washcloth also works well to get it pre-moistened. But after that it comes off very easily. I always feel very fresh after this mask and my skin feels very soft and looks great.

I actually have acne issues and have been on clendamycin lotion and recently retin-a cream, so it's not like this 'cured' my acne alone but I am still using it with the other things. I use this almost daily, It's amazing how it's gentle enough yet dries acne spots and helps moisturize at the same time. I looked up why yeast helps and it was attributed to helping cell turnover so your spots heal faster and fade faster/even tone and could potentially also help with wrinkles; the same reason people use Retin-A. One thing I have noticed with my years of acne is that some products DO help the skin heal faster with less scaring and it's NOT the over drying ones. Things like this and even sometimes oils/moisturizing are far better. I absolutely love this mask far more than the ones I was previously using (for drying) and see a difference. Everyone should try it!!!

UPDATE!!!!!!!!! Quit Clendamycin AND Retin A. (One a few months ago, and one recently) I think they didn't help as much as I wanted them to, but still believe this does and will continue to use it.

Another pleasant update: When you add honey to this mixture, it doesn't dry stiff at all. I didn't expect that but it's nice! Honey has antibacterial and soothing properties, and I used Manuka honey which is known for having the highest antibacterial properties. I'm sure you can mix a few other things in it as well. Edit: I stopped using honey in it because I didn't know if it changed the efficiency, and I do honey masks by rubbing honey on a wet face and letting it sit, so I think adding honey to this was too small to make a difference, but who knows maybe not. I also tried rice powder on it's own or in this. I still prefer yeast!

I have been looking for reviews for brewer's yeast and couldn't find one but now I know I am not the only one that tried the yeast mask!!

I used to do the yeast mask until I was 18 (my mom told me about it). Then I started using shop bought masks and creams and forgot about the simple yeast.

A few months back, my skin was looking terrible so I looked in my fridge and I remembered I used yeast in my school years so I said ''let' s try it again'' and results were great: smaller pores, fewer blackheads, some of the blackheads were out of the pores so this is great if you want to extract your blackheads or use nose strips, even skin, scars were less visible and my overall complexion looked muuuch better!
I am thinking of doing often as I love the way my skin looks and feels after using it.

I use only FRESH brewer's yeast with a bit of water or milk or lemon juice (for who can take this) or plants tea, make a paste, apply on face, leave 10-15 mins, rinse, swipe a cotton ball full chamomile or tilia tea and then put Calendula oil or Macadamia oil-> perfection! I never rubbed the yeast on my skin as a gommage or exfoliating action before washing my face so maybe I could try this next time. I tried just a mask per se.

When I was younger I was also mixing egg white with brewer's yeast when I had pimples and cysts and it would help with the redness and flatten them!

I have a very ''special'' skin: blackheads, sometimes pimples and cysts, dry skin, oily skin, dry patches, very sensitive and this mask is great for everything!

I can't believe nobody wrote this, I learned it from my mother.

Take yeast, add just a little bit of milk so that it is liquid enough to apply on face (but not too liquid, it should be fixed). Let it dry (approx 15min) and then wash it off.

It is great for cleaning balckheads mechanically afterwards. It is also nourishing as yeast has quite of B6 vitamin and speeds up circulation on the applied area.

It is slightly drying, but normal moisturizer treatment afterwards would work (though I always wait a bit after masks, don't want to apply anything while pores are open.
