    Home Made Facials

    Citrus and grapefruit mask for oily skin type:

    Ingredients:

    ˝ grapefruit
    ˝ lemon’s juice
    ˝ cored apple
    1-2 egg whites
    30-40 seedless grapes

    Mix ingredients together in a blender. Apply on your face and leave for fifteen minutes, then rinse off with warm water.

    Grapefruit unclogs pores and lemon is an excellent astringent and clarifier, while egg whites tighten the skin. Expect a tingle with this mask-that means its working but if your skin is dry it could start to burn. If this occurs, wash it off immediately.


    Fruit Mask for dehydrated skin:

    Ingredients:

    1 cup of mixed mashed fruit (try melon, peaches, strawberries, and bananas)
    2-3 Tbsp. Double cream
    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 day in the sun and helps refresh the skin.

    Honey Mask

    Ingredients:

    1˝ tbsp. honey
    1 egg white
    2 tsp. glycerin
    1/3 cup flour

    Whisk the honey, egg white 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

    Ingredients:

    1 egg white

    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 tightens your skin.

    Ingredients:

    Egg yolk

    Separate the yolk from the egg white. Mix the yolk and apply over clean skin. Let it set for about 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

    The egg yolk acts as an anti-oxidant and does wonders for your complexion as it pulls impurities out of your skin, leaving it soft and healthy.

    Yoghurt Moisturizing Mask

    Ingredients:

    Plain yoghurt

    Smooth yoghurt over your face and let it set for about 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

    This mask is super-simple and will add lots of moisture to your skin. Especially a treat to people having dry skin. Plus, it’s great for those of us who hate spending time in the kitchen and want something that’s quick to prepare and easy to make.

    Egg and Honey Facial


    Ingredients:

    1 egg yolk
    1 tsp. honey
    1 tsp. vitamin E oil
    1 tsp. almond oil

    Mix all ingredients together, stirring until 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. Egg yolks contain anti-oxidants, which are very beneficial to our skin.

    Vegetable Mask

    Ingredients:

    1/2 tomato, mashed (remove seeds and skin)
    2 tsp. curd
    1 tsp. mashed cucumber
    3-4 tsp. oatmeal powder
    3 crushed mint leaves.

    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 anti-oxidants, and the curd prevents excessive drying.

    Fruity Facials

    Ingredients:

    Strawberry

    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 if there is any irritation then do not apply.

    Ingredients:

    Papaya

    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 is useful in exfoliating the skin.

    Ingredients:

    Watermelon


    Crush watermelon and apply on the face for 5 minutes and then rinse. Watermelon cleanses the skin.
