I have long loved mud masks, they are great at helping to keep my oily-prone skin under control. My girls have loved hanging out with me, giggling as my mask dries. They have been begging me for a spa day with Mommy, with our very own Kid-Safe Mud Mask.
…but… their skin is so soft and delicate! Some mud masks sting a little bit, and we needed a face mask for them that was super gentle. So we *made* one. Half the fun was mixing up our concoction! It was almost as much fun as painting each others faces!

Kids Spa Day at Home
DIY Kids Face Mask Ingredients:
- Deep Cleansing Mask – This mask was a clay mask and more hydrating than my other (aka favorite mud mask)
- Skin Conditioning Aloe Gel – This ingredient helps water down the mask, and the aloe is both cooling and soothing for fresh skinned kiddos.
- Lavender Essential Oil – Cause spa day has to smell lovely! Lavender is super gentle. One drop was more than enough to add a fun scent to our mix.
- Wide Paint Brush – We used the brush to mix our ingredients up, and then to apply the mud to our faces.
Time to start your Spa Party!
We mixed our ingredients up, 1/2 clay mask, 1/2 aloe gel. We had about a third of a cup when we were done. Add a single drop of lavender essential oil (the Unwind Lavender-Bergamot Blend is *amazing*).
Test the mask on the skin on the inside of their arm, just above their wrists, to make sure that they do not have a reaction to the concoction, before slathering it all over each others faces.
We had a BLAST having a mud mask party together! Be sure to bring your camera for selfies!
