Ideas for homemade face masks
Why pay for expensive store bought face masks when you can use natural ingredients to make your own?
Here are a few easy, simple and inexpensive receipes that you can try immediately.
Healthy and glowing skin isn’t just a privilege for young women. With constant and targeted care we can maintain the freshness of our skin by moisturizing and nourishing also with a proper diet full of fruit and vegetables and drinking lots of water.
Once a once a week we can pamper our skin with a 'low cost' face mask that we can safely make at home, with natural ingredients - and no harsh chemicals or additives - and with items found in our pantry, just like our very wise grandmothers used to.
Banana mask for normal or mixed skin
- - a banana
- - Rose water - you can also make your own if you're inclined
Peel the banana and mash it with a fork. Apply it to you face and leave it on for half an hour, then gently remove the mask using rose water
Sour milk mask for oily and/or impure skinIngredients:
- - whole milk
- - lemon juice from half a lemon - filtered
In a small bowl pour a little milk and add the lemon juice, in a few minutes due to the acid in the lemon juice the milk will curdle and become a sort of cream that you can apply on your face. Leave it on for twenty minutes and then rinse with fresh water.
Honey and egg yoke hydrating and nutrient maskIngredients:
- - an egg yolk
- - a spoon of liquid honey
In a small bowl mix the egg yolk with the honey to obtain an emulsion that you’ll apply to your face and neck with a delicate massage. Leave the mask on for twenty minutes and rinse off with warm water.
Nut mask for dry skinIngredients:
- - 12 peeled Brazil nuts
- - 2 teaspoons of milk
- - juice from half an orange
- - rose water
Finely grind the nuts - you can also use your mixer - add the milk and the juice obtained from the orange that you previously filtered and mix until you obtain a soft mixture that you’ll apply to your face with a sterile gauze pad. Leave on for half an hour and remove with the rose water.
