Allure Tips: DIY Home Facial Masks
Why should you spend money and energy going to a spa when you have the luxury of doing your own facial masks with ingredients right from your kitchen?
Check out some DIY facial masks with ingredients right in your kitchen:
1. Banana Facial Masks
-Mash up a medium-sized ripe banana into a smooth paste
– Gently apply it to your face and neck.
-Let it set for 10 to 20 minutes, then rinse it off with cold water.
-Another popular mask recipe calls for 1/4 cup plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons honey and 1 medium banana.
Do this and watch your face look and feel softer!
2. Milk Facial Mask
-Make a mask by mixing 1/4 cup powdered milk with enough water to form a thick paste.
-Thoroughly coat your face with the mixture, let dry completely.
-Then rinse with warm water.
Your face will thank you for feeling fresh and rejuvenated.
3. Oat Facial masks
-Combine 1/2 cup hot—not boiling—water and 1/3 cup oatmeal.
-After the water and oatmeal have settled for two or three minutes, mix in 2 tablespoons plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons honey, and 1 small egg white.
-Apply a thin layer of the mask to your face, and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
-Then rinse with warm water. (Be sure to place a metal or plastic strainer in your sink to avoid clogging the drain with the granules.)
4. Lemon Facial masks
-Create a homemade face mask that both exfoliates and moisturizes by mixing the juice from 1 lemon with 1/4 cup olive oil or sweet almond oil
5. Egg Facial Masks
If you have dry skin that needs moisturizing, separate the egg and beat the yolk.
Oily skin takes the egg white, to which a bit of lemon or honey can be added.
For normal skin, use the entire egg. Apply the beaten egg, relax and wait 30 minutes, then rinse.
Voila! You would definitely love your new fresh face.
