Use this opportunity to take a break, relax and get radiant looking skin for less.....
Studies show that homemade masks can offer wonderful results.
You may also be able to help solve some of your common skin problems using some simple ingredients from home.
So here are a few ingredients (some a little strange) that you can mix together anyway you like to create a customized homemade facial mask to best suit your skin’s needs.
Cat litter! Yes, clean, unused, plain old 100% clay cat litter makes a great oil absorbing mask. It can also help detoxify.
Cat litter has properties similar to the type of clay used in facials – so it makes for a great (dirt absorbing) facial.
If you still have oily skin, follow up with a gentle at home toner of vinegar mixed with water. Helen of Troy and Roman women were said to have used this trick.
Rough, flaky, or dull complexion
Give your complexion a nice scrub with a mixture of Arm and Hammer baking soda and water.
Moisture hydrating masks
Avocado, banana, and honey are moisturizing and make great a anti-aging facial because of the loads of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants found naturally in them.
Skin tightening/lightening masks
If you want to do some tightening, egg whites are a great way to firm the skin.
Irritated or blotch skin?
Oatmeal and cucumbers are great for people with red and sensitive skin as they are very soothing and calming.
You may need a blender for these ingredients to get them a bit liquefied.
Don’t forget to wash off your homemade facial mask in your shower – it’s much cleaner that way!
Puffy face and eyes?
Have puffy eyes or skin? Put some ground coffee beans to your homemade facial mask for some instant depuffing. Caffeine works great to reduce swelling.
