The Best Homemade Face Masks

woman girl beauty mask - The Best Homemade Face Masks

Worried about the ingredients in your face masks bought from the beauty shop? Not anymore!

It would be really nice if you could read the label of a face mask and actually understand the formula elements, chemical compounds and what is good or dangerous for your skin. Since not all of us are chemists you can forget all about that and start to make your beauty products in your own home. Cheap, easy, effective and most important, natural.

Milk and gelatine peel off mask

This mask will remove black heads, dead skin cells and will give your skin a natural glow. The milk will help your skin to soften while the gelatine will infiltrate in your pores and clean them. You'll need one spoon of milk, one spoon of flavourless gelatine powder and a microwave container. Mix the milk and gelatine in the container and stir well until it dissolves. Microwave the mixture for 5 seconds and repeat for another 5 seconds after a little while. Let the mixture cool down so you don't burn your skin and test it on your hand before applying it. If it's good to go apply it with a brush, let it dry and enjoy the peel off sensation (I know you like it). In the end, wash your face with warm water.

Egg white and lemon juice for deep cleaning

Ideal for oily skin, acne and black heads, this face mask will shrink your pores, brighten and exfoliate the skin. You'll need one egg white, one spoon lemon juice and tissue paper. Combine the egg white and lemon juice into a bowl and whisk them well. Apply the mixture on your face with a brush and then place tissue paper and press it gently. Apply another coat of mixture on top of the tissue and let it dry. Peel off gently the tissue to remove the black heads and rinse with warm water.

Clay and yogurt face mask

Using bentonite clay it's a good way to pull out toxins, dead skin cells and oils out of your pores. The yogurt will exfoliate the skin and also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Mix one spoon of bentonite clay and one spoon of plain yogurt into a bowl and don't use metallic tools when handling clay . Apply the mixture on your face and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Remove the mask with warm water.

Activated charcoal and glue: the war against blackheads

This may not sound too natural but it's very effective against blackheads and safe if you're not allergic to glue. You'll need one teaspoon of activated charcoal powder and 2 teaspoon of non-toxic white glue. Mix them well into a bowl and apply with a brush on your skin. Let it dry and gently peel off mask. Wash your face with warm water.

*When using any kind of face mask, avoid applying it on the eyes area, hair line or on your eyebrows. For best results try to peel it off from bottom up of your face.
