Personally, I love to use a facial mask at least once a week. However, I’ve found that a lot of the ones you buy in the store are not just too expensive but they also don’t always tend to be natural as many often claim to be. That’s why I decided to start making homemade ones. I would like to share several of those with you right now and hope you’ll enjoy these natural skincare masks as much as I do.
Wine Facial Mask
If you love wine, like I do, you’ll love this one. Not only can you drink it, you can use it as a natural skincare product that has a wrinkle smoothing effect on your skin.
¼ Cup of wine (any kind red wine you might have on hand)
¼ Cup of kaolin clay (you can get this at any health food store)
2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil (also found in health food stores)
1 tablespoon of organic oat flour (also can be found in health food stores)
Take all of these ingredients and put them in a bowl and mix together. Once mixed, I just spread this homemade facial mask on my face and neck. Then I pour myself a glass of wine and sip on that for ten minutes while the natural mask does its work.
After the ten minutes is up I take a clean washcloth and rinse my face off with warm water.
Strawberry Facial Mask
This is a great homemade mask that helps to really give a fresh feeling a wonderful smoothness to your skin. It smells great too.
¼ Cup of bee pollen (found in health food stores)
3 tablespoons of raw honey
1 tablespoon of olive oil mayonnaise
A few drops of lavender essential oil (found in health food stores)
Simply combine all of the ingredients above in a bowl and after it’s mixed well I just gently apply this natural homemade facial mask all over my face. Just make sure to keep it out of your eyes. Then I just kick back and relax for about twenty minutes and then rinse it off with some warm water and a clean washcloth.
Now this one is for all you beer drinkers out there. It’s easy and believe it or not it’s a great homemade natural mask that really soothes and cleans the skin.
1 egg white
½ Cup of beer
2 teaspoons of fresh lime juice
All you do is combine the egg white, lime juice and beer together in a bowl and put it liberally all over your face. I usually let this homemade mask sit on my face about ten minutes and then rinse it off with some warm water. This natural mask hydrates the skin and can even improve the elasticity of your skin. Great, easy and cheap mask to make.
So, there you have it, a few great homemade facial masks that should help you keep your skin natural and healthy looking with very little effort on your part. Enjoy!
