Natural Facial Masks to Make from Scratch
Natural facial masks are a must have beauty tool! Using items you already have on hand saves both time and money!
Even if you don't already have the items you'll need in your kitchen, you can purchase most of them for pennies on the dollar!
Sagging skin can make you look years older than your real age! Facials help keep your skin firm and tight and provide a youthful afterglow everyone will notice!
Of course, you’ll need to clean and moisturize your face on a regular basis too. Moisturized skin helps protect it from the elements and helps ‘plump’ your skin. Throughout your life, take care of delicate facial skin by using natural facial masks regularly!
Natural Facial Masks to Make from Scratch
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 drops scented essential oil (optional)
Whisk all ingredients well. Dip a cotton ball or your fingertips into the mixture and apply to your face and neck.
Allow it to set for approx. 15-20. Rinse your face with warm, clear water. Pat dry.
*** Honey has wonderful properties that help give you beautiful skin. It is anti-microbial (germ killing), non-irritating and it is a humectant (it keeps the skin hydrated, and moisturized). To soften your skin overall, add 1/4 cup of honey to your warm bath water and soak for 15 minutes. There just aren't many natural skin care products that do as much for very little money!***
Honey and Oatmeal Mask
1 large egg yolk
2 Tablespoons honey
2 1/2 Tablespoons finely ground oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon water
Whisk together egg yolk and honey. Stir in oatmeal and water. Using fingers spread the mixture over your face and neck (avoid the eye area). Relax for 20 minutes. Remove the mask with a washcloth soaked in warm water.
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1/2 avocado, mashed or blended
Blend all ingredients together. (A blender works best) Apply to your face and neck for 15-20. Remove with clear, warm water. Pat dry.
Firming Facial Mask
1 Tbsp. honey
1 egg white
1 tsp. glycerin
1/4 cup flour
Whisk together in a small bowl.
Smooth the paste over your face and throat. Leave it on for ten minutes. Rinse with warm water.
You'll need to tone your skin after you use natural facial masks. They help remove remnants of the mask from your skin, return your skin's natural pH, and tighten your pores.
1 part vinegar
2 parts water
Dab on to face and neck with a cotton ball.
Natural Facial Masks with Food
Some natural facial masks are made by combining certain fruits or vegetables that have anti aging properties. The more you experiment using them, the better you'll know which foods work best for your skin type.
Avocado's are (in my humble opinion) the BEST fresh ingredient you could ever use in a facial mask. They're a great source of natural potassium, which is known as the youth mineral! Be sure to include them in your diet too!
Mash half of an avocado and apply to your face. (Squish it onto your skin.) Leave it on for 20 minutes. Gently wipe off with a damp wash cloth. (You can also add 1 T. of honey to the mashed avocado. Honey kills germs and tightens pores. It can be used in all natural facial masks.
Banana, Honey, and Sour Cream
Mash 1/2 banana, add 1 tablespoon honey and 2 tablespoons sour cream. Apply to face and leave it on for 10 minutes. Gently wipe off with a damp wash cloth.
Mix two tablespoons of cornmeal with a bit of water to make a thick paste. Apply to face and leave it on for 10 minutes. Gently wipe off with a damp wash cloth.
Apricots and Cream
Soak 1 cup dried apricots in water until softened. Then puree in blender or food processor with 2 tablespoons *skim milk powder. Apply to face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Gently wipe off with a damp wash cloth.
*Note - If you don’t have the powder, just use plain milk.
Cucumber & Yogurt
Puree 1/2 peeled, sliced cucumber in a blender or food processor and add 1 tablespoon yogurt. Apply to face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Gently wipe off with a damp wash cloth.
You'll also need to spend some money on other products that help with facial skin care. Toners, sunblocks, and moisturizers are vital.
You can find some quality products that don’t cost a lot. You don’t always have to use the less expensive products though. The more expensive products you can buy usually last a LONG time, so there is real value in these products too!
Be creative and alter the ingredients when you can to experiment. You don't have to add every ingredient in natural facial masks for them to be effective. Just use what you have on hand! You may stumble on something that accidentally works terrific for your skin!
