Is your skin looking tired or lacking luminosity? It may be time for a little pampering!
As the winter sticks around, the skin suffers from outside aggression such as wind, extreme cold, UV, and overheated, dry houses. It’s important to take a few minutes once a week to repair and regenerate your skin.
As many women struggle to find the time to book a spa appointment, here are a few easy, home made face mask recipes. With accessible ingredients, there will be no reason not to indulge.
♦ Lemon Facial Mask
This mask has both exfoliating and moisturizing properties.
Mix the juice from 1 lemon with 1/4 cup of olive oil and apply for 10 minutes. Rinse off with water.
♦ Oatmeal and Yogurt Facial Mask
Suitable for all skin types, you’ll love how rejuvenated your skin will feel.
1 tsp oatmeal
1 tsp plain yogurt
A few drops of warmed honey
Mix all the ingredients together; leave on your face for 10 minutes and rinse off.
♦ Egg Facial Mask
All you need is an egg–it doesn’t get easier than that!
For dry skin: separate the egg and beat the yolk.
For oily skin: lightly beat the egg white. For more anti-bacterial properties, you can add a couple of drops of honey and lemon juice.
For normal skin: beat the whole egg.
Apply all over the face and relax for 30 minutes.
