Easy Homemade Masks for Your Face: 3 OR LESS INGREDIENTS

Tips from: Beauty QA

The homemade mask experiment has been lingering in development for many years in kitchen counters across the world, fueled by the female imagination and the desire to have the best sleepover of the decade. The security that we can fall back on our good, old fridge just in case our favorite spas and salons were to disappear off the face of the earth (yikes) is worth all the effort of concocting those wonderful, green-face memories. Here are some of the best recipes that were born from the mask making madness! Be sure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients before you try them and always avoid the eyes when applying!

Easy Homemade Maske Recipe for:

DRY SKIN

½ of a small avocado

2 spoonfuls of plain yogurt

Blend these until smooth and apply a generous layer to the face. Be sure to avoid your eyes when applying. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and then rinse with cold water. Both ingredients are known to be super skin softeners.

Easy Homemade Maske Recipe for:

OILY SKIN

1 eggwhite

1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice

Beat the egg white until it becomes foamy and then stir in the lemon juice. Apply a thin layer on the face avoiding the eyes. You will soon feel the mask tightening your skin as it dries. Leave for up to 15 minutes, then rinse with cold water. Lemon juice is used in many astringents to wipe away excess oil on the skin while the egg white is a good medium to temporarily tighten pores.

Easy Homemade Maske Recipe for:

NORMAL OR COMBINATION SKIN

½ small green papaya

2 tablespoons of aloe vera juice

1 tablespoon of honey

Blend these ingredients until smooth and apply a thin layer to the face avoiding the eyes. Leave for up to 15 minutes and rinse with cold water. The active enzymes in the green papaya promote exfoliation of old, dead skin cells. Aloe vera juice, considered the best natural healer by many professionals, will promote livelier, renewed skin. Besides being bacteriostatic, honey is a known skin softener. Many companies sell products of similar composition at $20 for 1.5 oz!

CLAY MASKS

water

clay

Choose a clay that suits your skin type. White clays such as kaolin should be used for sensitive skin types. Most spa therapists recommend this clay type. The darker clays (green or earth color) are used for normal to oily skin types. Red clay is generally not considered to be good. Mix the clay powder and water until the consistency is similar to a thick lotion. Apply a generous layer to the face avoiding the eyes. Leave until it dries and rinse with cold water.
