At Home Masks for Glowing Skin
• Egg White and Lemon Mixture – many women swear by egg white and lemon to have improved their skin tone, and make it look glowing. The egg whites have the reputation of being excellent in letting the nutrients penetrate in the skin while making it firm, and lemon also is known to have AHA, which lifts up dead skin cells and revealing a much fairer and younger skin.
To make a face mask out of it, just extract the lemon and separate the egg white from the yolk. Mix all the ingredients together and apply it on your face. This works well with any skin type. Wait for 20 minutes before you rinse with warm water.
• Honey Face Mask – Did you ever know how Cleopatra takes care of her skin? It’s all in the honey. Honey contains lots of essential nutrients and benefits the skin more than what we may think of. It has antibacterial properties, soothing properties, anti-inflammatory, and is also nourishing to the skin. For those suffering from acne, this could be the best face mask you can ever have (especially when mixed with lemon).
Just make sure to apply the face mask the right way. Wash your face with warm water (to open the pores), then apply the honey on your face on circular motion. You can massage your face a bit for your skin to absorb the good part of the honey, and then leave it on your face until it dries up. Rinse it using warm water again to draw out the impurities, and then followed by cold water to close the pores.
• Papaya face Mask
For a glowing skin, you need to lift away the dead skin cells and let the new cells be revealed. It’s good to know that papaya do this job best. Papaya has papaine enzyme that is widely known to make skin fairer, fade away scars as it soften the skin tissues and easily take off the dead skin.
To prepare it is easy. You just mash the papaya either manual or by blender, mixed it with oats and apply it on your properly cleansed face. Leave for 20 minutes then rinse.
These at home masks are simple and easy to make yet its effect are noticeable upon regular use. What makes this a much better alternative than buying commercial face mask in the market is that you can experiment the natural ingredients and base it on your specific skin needs.
