Maintaining a healthy, youthful face is a big concern for many women. You can easily keep up with your appearance by performing at home do-it-yourself facials. DIY facial masks are not only inexpensive; a majority of them are natural. Many of them are made from the food and beverages that you eat and drink daily.
Give some of these facials a try:
Honey & Egg Mask – mix an egg with 1 table spoon of honey. Apply the mask to your face around bed time. Wash your face with lukewarm water after the mask is dried. Do it twice a week. This mask is suitable for normal skin types. It can help tighten pores, reduce wrinkles and nourish the skin.
Apple Mask – mix an egg, 2 teaspoons of honey, half of an apple, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 5g of flour. Peel the apple and crush it into apple mud. Then add in all other ingredients. Stir the mixture until it becomes pasty. After cleansing your face, apply the mask for 10-15 minutes and wash off. The apple mask increases skin metabolism and therefore revitalizes your skin cells. It also nourishes and whitens your skin.
Honey, Yogurt & Banana Mask – mash ½ a banana and mix it with 1 tablespoon of honey and a small cup of yogurt. Apply the mixture onto the face for 5 minutes and then wash off with lukewarm water. This mask will help tighten pores and peel off the dead skin. You will find your skin immediately brighten up after applying the mask. It is most suitable for dry skin types.
Grape Moisture Mask – using seedless grapes, place in a juicer to turn them into grape juice. Mix the grape juice with flour. Apply to the face for 10-15 minutes and wash off with warm water. Grape is a strong anti-oxidant and therefore this mask will help reduce fine lines while replenishing the skin’s moisture.
Papaya Mask – 1 papaya, 2 tablespoons of milk and 2 teaspoons of honey. First mash the papaya to a pulp-like consistency. Add in the milk and honey and mix well. After cleansing your face, apply for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Papaya can deep clean the dirt in the pores. It contains vitamin B which can rejuvenate the tired skin.
Tomato Mask – mash tomatoes and several pieces of lemon. Add some flour and mix well. Apply to face for a longer time at around 30 minutes. Both tomato and lemon are rich in vitamin C and therefore this mask is good for fighting spots. This mask is especially suitable for oily skin. Apply to your face 2 to 3 times a week and you will notice significant skin improvement.
Coffee & Cocoa Mask – 2 tablespoons of freshly ground coffee, 2 tablespoons pure cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon of honey and 3 tablespoons of yogurt or sour cream. Blend all ingredients together and spread evenly over skin. Allow to set for 10 minutes then rinse off while gently massaging your face to gently exfoliate it as well. This mask will detox your skin while replenishing lost moisture making your skin look plump, healthy and hydrated.
Natural skin care rituals are extremely beneficial. With easy to find ingredients, there is really no reason for you to take care of your face and adding a facial to your home beauty routine.
