Amla facial mask ingredients, amla and yogurt

While Amla, also known as Amalaki or Indian Gooseberry, has been cherished for centuries for its nutritional content, outside of India, few know that this superfood also offers significant skincare benefits when made into an amla facial mask.

Amla’s anti-aging benefits have been confirmed by modern science. One study showed that topical Amla application increased pro-collagen, the skin’s precursor to collagen, and its high levels of bioavailable Vitamin C can help fight signs of aging such as hyperpigmentation, promoting even skin tone. 

Amla is emerging as a potent addition to skincare products, but having a little on hand makes it easy to whip up a quick at-home facial treatment. Using yogurt as a carrier for Amla brings the additional benefit of lactic acid to gently exfoliate surface skin cells. 

You may add any additional ingredients you like to this simple amla facial mask recipe, such as aloe vera or honey, but you’ll get plenty of anti-aging benefits with amla and yogurt alone, especially if you add it to your skincare routine a couple of times a week. 

Easy Amla Facial Mask



  1. Place the yogurt in a small bowl. Open the Amla capsules and empty them into the yogurt, then mix well.
  2. Smooth the yogurt paste generously onto freshly cleaned skin, then relax for 15 to 20 minutes and let the magic happen.
  3. Rinse the amla facial mask well with lukewarm water — we suggest splashing water on the face at least 8 times to encourage blood circulation and hydration.

You can apply this organic, natural mask every other day for 2 weeks and see amazing results for an even, youthful complexion.
