Here are a few homemade facials that will help make your skin beautiful and vibrant. You may treat this as the guide you could follow, for getting back that lost glow, making you feel younger by the minute!
Citrus and Grapefruit Mask for Oily Skin:
½ a grapefruit.
½ a lemon (juice).
½ an apple (cored).
1-2 eggs (whites).
30-40 grapes (seedless).
Mix the ingredients together in a blender. Apply on your face and leave it on for fifteen minutes, then rinse off with warm water.
Grapefruit unclogs the pores and lemon is an excellent astringent and clarifier. Egg whites make the skin firm. You can get a tingling feeling after you apply this mask. This is normal, however, if it starts to burn, rinse it off immediately.
Fruit Mask for Dehydrated Skin:
1 cup mixed mashed fruit (try melon, peaches, strawberries, and bananas).
2-3 tbsp. cream (double).
3 tsp. cottage cheese.
1 tsp. brown sugar.
4 tsp. oatmeal (powder).
Blend all the ingredients together and apply on your face. Relax for ten minutes, and rinse off with warm water. The luscious combination of cream and juicy fruits works wonders after a hot and dry day in the sun and helps refresh the skin.
Honey Mask
1½ tbsp. honey.
1 egg (whites).
2 tsp. glycerin.
1/3 cup flour.
Whisk the honey, egg whites and glycerin, and then add the flour. The result should be a thick paste. Apply to face and rinse after 15 minutes. This mask effectively moisturizes and tightens the skin, making it smooth and soft.
Egg Mask
1 egg (whites).
Separate the egg white from the yolk. Put the egg white on your face and relax for about 15 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water. This mask leaves your skin smooth, refreshed and firm. The egg yolk acts as an antioxidant and does wonders for your complexion as it pulls impurities out of your skin, leaving it soft and healthy.
Yoghurt Moisturizing Mask
Plain yogurt
Apply yogurt over your face and let it set for about 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water. This mask is simple and will add lots of moisture to your skin, and hence is recommended for people having dry skin.
Egg and Honey Facial
1 egg (yolk).
1 tsp. honey.
1 tsp. vitamin E oil.
1 tsp. almond oil.
Mix all ingredients together, until the mixture is smooth. To use, apply to face and rinse with warm water after 15 minutes. This easy mask is suitable for all skin types. It clarifies and moisturizes the skin, leaving it cleansed and silken to touch. Egg yolks contain antioxidants, which are very beneficial to our skin.
Vegetable Mask
1/2 tomato(mashed, skin and seeds removed).
2 tsp. yogurt.
1 tsp. cucumber(mashed).
3-4 tsp. oatmeal (powder).
3 mint leaves(crushed).
Mix ingredients together and apply on your face. Wait for ten minutes, and then wash off with warm water. This mask works well for oily skin, since it absorbs the surplus oils. Tomatoes are excellent antioxidants, and the yogurt prevents excessive drying.
Fruity Facial
Crush strawberry and apply on face and leave it on for 2/3 minutes and then rinse with plenty of water. Strawberry is rich in vitamin C and is very refreshing for your skin. However some people are allergic to strawberry, so before applying, test it on your skin and check if your skin is sensitive to it.
Crush papaya and apply on face and leave it on for 5 minutes. Rinse off with plenty of water.
Papayas contain an enzyme 'papain', which exfoliates the skin.
