Tutorial: Yakult & Mung Bean Mask



Most of my readers requested a step by step tutorial with measurements and pictures on how to make the “Yakult Mask”. Here you go *wink*.

For more information on the wonderful effects of the Yakult Mask
  • Yakult (or any lactobacillus drink)
  • Mung Bean Powder (I used Mung Bean Mask from Kuan Yuan bought from

Use around a tablespoon of mung bean starch
Mix everything into a paste and apply on your face just like a mask.
Wait until it is dry, just like this, like a thin film is on your face O_O
Rinse off with water, and water only! 🙂
Instant Effect: Skin brightening, acne drying
Long Term Effect:: Pore size appearance reduced, redness minimizing, acne gone! 🙂 Glowy skin!
Hope this helps! Thank you so much!

    is this mask really safe for sensitive skin? no breakout whatsoever after using it?

  • Reply admnkikaysikat March 21, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    hi locke, you can use mung bean powder, or crushed mung beans

    hi koko, im not sure about sensitive skin, i have high cosmetics tolerance so im brave to try anything. try it on the back of your arm first if no irritation happens.

    You should remove the the pore minimizing part, it's not true, pores cannot/will not be minimized only the appearance can be reduced.

    So do you use the whole Yakult bottle? (: Or only one spoonful like in the picture?

  • Reply admnkikaysikat March 22, 2010 at 3:57 am

    do i have to wash my face first before applying? and would you know if it's effective just using yakult? i don't know where to buy mung bean locally.

  • Reply admnkikaysikat March 23, 2010 at 5:35 am

    Yup! Please do apply this on a clean face.

    I tried using yakult only before and it also gave effects, but I think its more effective with the combination of the mung bean.

  • Reply anneklein814 March 23, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    you wash it with cold or warm water?

  • Reply admnkikaysikat March 24, 2010 at 3:46 am

    I wash it off with cold water ,because Im lazy to heat my water first 🙂

  • Reply amandahhs November 10, 2010 at 11:54 am

    do you wash it off straight away?

  • Reply Anonymous February 23, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    How long did you use it? And after how long do the marks dissapear

  • Reply Emz April 6, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    I substituted sugar instead of mung bean powder. I hope its okay. I've been trying it for a 2 weeks now and it works amazing. With sugar, its more of a scrub on my face to wash off then.

    Hi Ms. Kat 🙂
    Gusto ko sanang itry tong mask kaya lang wala talaga kong mahanap na Mungbean powder 🙁 Pwede po kaya yung home made na lang?? Yung iro-roast then saka iga-grind.. (Ganun po yung steps nung isearch ko kung paano gumawa ng home made Mungbean flour, they use it for baking)
    PLEASE HELP :(( Lastmonth lumalala yung pimples ko sa cheeks.. Nakakaiyak talaga kasi super ang pupula pa nila. Thanks in advance Ms. Kat 🙂
