Especially if you suffer from dark spots, acne scars, and uneven skin tone, this face mask and scrub is the perfect remedy! This recipe uses some less commonly known ingredients such as brown rice flour and orris root powder (more on that later), but these ingredients deliver!

We've tried this mask and it has made a HUGE difference in our skin! Skin tone was brighter, spots were smaller, and overall skin health was improved!

Homemade Brightening Face Mask Recipe:

Let's take a look at some of the ingredients we'll be using in this brightening face mask and WHY they're so effective:

Brown Rice Flour
Pretty self explanatory, but brown rice flour is exactly what it sounds like: finely ground up brown rice kernels! It contains a high amount of vitamins C and B5, which are actually naturally brightening. Brown rice flour also helps absorb excess sebum in the skin (oil), and is therefore great for those with oily/acne prone skin. If possible, try to use organic brown rice flour! You can find rice flour at your local grocery store!

Orris Root Powder
This plant based powder is made from the orris root which is the root of the Iris flower! This finely ground powder has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties, and in this instance, can help with cleansing and detoxifying the skin. If possible, try to use organic orris root powder! You can find orris root powder online such as on Amazon, as well as your local health store!

Chamomile Flower Water
This floral water is made from chamomile flowers which is extremely beneficial for the skin. It will help to reduce redness, calm the skin, and also hydrate. Look for a hydrosol (flower water) that is 100%, meaning it should ONLY contain water and chamomile flowers.

Organic Brown Rice Flour
  • 1 tsp organic brown flour
  • 3 tsps chamomile flower water
  • 1 tsp orris root powder


  1. To a small bowl, add all of the ingredients. Stir well until a thick paste forms.
  2. If the mask is too thick, add a little more liquid. If it's too liquidy, add more flour.
  3. Apply the mask to (cleansed) skin and leave on for 10 minutes. Be sure to remove right before it starts to dry out.
  4. Wet your fingers and scrub the mask into the skin for about a minute and rinse off completely.
  5. Pat dry and follow up with a DIY toner and your daily moisturizer.

This face mask is safe to use once or twice a week!
