Ah...the natural face mask! A healthy glow. Skin feeling clean, soft and fresh! Right at your finger tips! Or at least in your frig! I'm going to give you a few great masks recipes to make at home that will leave your face feeling incredible and your purse heavier! But, first a few tips and thoughts....
Clean, healthy skin is attainable to all of us, regardless of our age, we can have the radiant glow that comes from healthy skin. I just turned 50 and it seemed like overnight my skin changed! Has that happened to anyone else? I realized my skin looked old. Wrinkles deepened, dull lifeless skin, patchy, etc.
I discovered facial masks and determined to take the 15 mins it takes to do one, and found theres no going back! My face feels fresh and supple again. A facial mask helps soften the skin, removing impurities, toxins, unclogging pores, and helps hydrate and soothe your skin. All skin types and ages are not alike, different masks for different needs, let me share a few.......
INGREDIENTS (this recipe will make about two masks)
1 egg (full of proteins,vitamins A,D,E ,tightens the pores, softens skin)
2 TBL powdered milk or whole milk (nourishes skin, lactic acid, hydrates,anti-aging benefits)
. 1 TBL honey (protects from sun damage, antioxidant, absorbs impurities, antibacterial, great cleanser)
Simple and oh so nourishing. HELPFUL HINT: oily or acne prone skin? Use the egg white.
Dry skin? Use the egg yolk. Normal skin? Use the whole egg.
HOW: Start with a clean face.
In a small bowl combine all ingredients, whisk with a fork or I like to use a hand mixer because it
comes out fluffier and easier to apply. Leave on for 10-15 mins or until dry. You can repeat with
another layer or rinse after one .Rinse. Pat dry. Your face will feel stunning, I promise you!
Store leftovers covered in refrigerator, use within the week.
I did the egg yoke mask this morning , my 28 year old daughter did the whole egg method and my 14
year old did the egg white method. It was fun doing it together and all of our faces feel really really good!
If you are allergic to any above ingredients please do not use this mask on your face!
Otherwise, try it and leave me a comment! More great masks on my next post.
