Homemade face mask with banana

Who needs botox when you have bananas on hand? Indeed, you can use the banana as a natural face mask. This ingredient will help hydrate your skin and leave it softer. Crush a medium sized ripe banana into a paste and apply gently to your face and neck. Leave the mask on for 10-20 minutes and then rinse with cold water. Also try the fortified version with a medium sized ripe banana, 1/4 cup plain yogurt and 2 tablespoons honey (a home remedy for acne). You’ll feel younger.

Home made cider vinegar face mask

The idea of using cider vinegar as a skin tonic dates back to the time of Helen of Troy, but is just as effective today. Mix one tablespoon of cider vinegar in two cups of water. After cleansing your face, apply the toner to the skin of your face to firm it and close the pores. You can also create a face mask by mixing 1/4 cup cider vinegar with 1/4 cup water. Apply the mask to your face and let dry.

Home made face mask with milk

Here’s another way to give you a spa-like face at home. Make the mask by mixing 1/4 cup milk powder with just enough water to form a thick paste. Apply a generous layer of paste to the skin of your face and let it dry completely. Rinse with warm water. Your skin will be fresher and less tired.

Home made oat face mask

If you’re looking for a face mask that will enhance your complexion and make you feel more beautiful and younger, treat yourself to an oatmeal mask. Combine 1/2 cup hot but not boiling water and 1/3 cup oats. After letting stand for 2 to 3 minutes, add 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey and the white of 1 small egg. Apply a thin layer to the skin of your face and let the mask act for 10 to 15 minutes. Then rinse with warm water. To avoid blocking the sink in your bathroom, put a filter to drain the water…

Green yogurt facial mask

Mayonnaise facial mask

Why spend a fortune on cream when you can afford a soothing face mask with real mayonnaise in the fridge? Gently apply the mayonnaise to your face and let it work for 20 minutes. Then wipe off the mayonnaise and rinse with fresh water. Your skin will then be clean and soft.

Yogurt facial mask

No need to go all the way to the spa to give your skin a glow. To cleanse and close your pores, apply a thin layer of plain yogurt to your face for about 20 minutes. For a revitalizing effect, mix the juice of 1/4 orange, a little pulp and a teaspoon of aloe vera. Leave the mask on your face for 5 minutes and rinse.

Homemade face mask with mustard

Apply mild mustard with a pad to the skin of your face to stimulate and soothe it. First try applying the mask to a small area of your face to make sure there is no irritation.

Lemon facial mask

Make a mask that will exfoliate your skin while moisturizing it by mixing the juice of a lemon in 1/4 cup of olive oil and almond oil.

Egg facial mask

All you need to pamper yourself a little is an egg. If your skin needs hydration, separate the white from the yolk of an egg. For oily skin, use the egg white to which you will add a little lemon juice or honey. For normal skin, use the whole egg. Apply mask and let stand 30 minutes before rinsing. You’ll love your new face!
