September 26, 2018

 

Sometimes we all feel that we need to take time for ourselves, relax and let the stress go. Relaxing and regenerating is important not only for our soul but also for our skin. There is no need to spend money on pricey spa treatments or buy more cosmetic products. You can turn your home into a day spa with only a few basic ingredients you most likely already have in your fridge. Here are 5 easy DIY face masks recipes for beautiful skin. To ensure your skin gets the best quality treatment, use organic ingredients.

 

 

1. Potatoes for dark circles under eyes

 

Potatoes are anti-inflammatory, detoxifying and have soothing properties. They contain potassium, vitamins B and C which are used in cosmetics to brighten the skin. Grated potatoes can help reduce the dark circles under the eyes and improve the skin tone.

 

What you need:

 

  • 1 potato

  • 1 think cloth

 

Grate or blend the potato and strain through the piece of cloth. Apply the pulp carefully under each eye. Rest for 10 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water. Apply your favorite eye cream.

 

Apply once a day.

 

Benefits:

 

  • Helps reduce puffy eyes

  • Reduces inflammation

  • Helps get rid of spots, marks, and blemishes

 

 

 

2. Oats for large pores and oily skin

 

Oats have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and are well known for their soothing and softening effect on skin.

 

What you need:

 

  • 1 tablespoon white yoghurt

  • 1 tablespoon oats

  • 1 teaspoon organic, raw honey

 

Mix the oats with the yoghurt to for a thick paste (for better application, you can crush the oats). Melt honey and add into the mixture. Stir well until the mixture is smooth. Apply evenly to your face, neck, and décolleté and leave for up to 15 minutes, then wash off the mask with lukewarm water.

 

Apply 2 times a week.

 

Benefits:

 

  • Helps get rid of excess oil

  • Reduces large pores

  • Cleanses and nourishes skin

  • Improves skin tone

 

3. Egg yolk for acne-prone skin

 

Egg yolk is rich in vitamin A, which is known to be very effective in fighting acne and preventing break outs. It promotes wound-healing and new skin cells to form.

 

What you need:

 

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 teaspoon organic, raw honey

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

 

Whisk the egg yolk and lemon juice together. Add honey and stir well. Apply with your fingers or a make-up brush on your face and let it sit for 10 minutes until it dries out. Wash off the mask with lukewarm water and splash your face with cool water to close the pores. Apply your favorite moisturizer.

 

Apply 1 - 2 times a week.

 

Benefits:

 

  • Decreases sebum production

  • Improves hydration

  • Improves skin tone

 

4. Baking soda for blackheads

 

While often used in cooking, this ingredient is also used as a natural exfoliant. Baking soda removes dead skin cells and can be effective in fighting acne and blackheads.

 

What you need:

 

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon water

 

Mix the ingredients well to form a creamy paste (not watery). Apply the mixture onto the problematic spots (do not apply all over your face) and leave it for about 7 minutes, then rinse off using lukewarm water. Use your favorite moisturizer straight away as the baking soda may leave your skin feeling tight.

 

Apply 2 – 4 times a week.

 

Benefits:

 

  • Cleans out pores

  • Reduces acne, blackheads

  • Lightens skin

 

5. Turmeric for all skin types

 

This spice is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and is used in both natural and conventional cosmetics. It cleans, brightens and regenerates the skin.

 

What you need:

 

  • 2 teaspoons chickpea flour

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric

  • 1 bigger teaspoon almond oils

  • milk

 

Mix the first three ingredients and add enough milk to form a paste. Apply on clean face and leave it for 20 minutes, then rinse off using lukewarm water. Apply your favorite moisturizer.

 

Apply 2-3 times per week.

 

Benefits:

 

  • Soothes skin irritation

  • Helps in treating acne

  • Reduces hyperpigmentation

 

Before you apply any face mask, always be sure to test the ingredients on small areas of your skin first to make sure you are not allergic to to any of them.

 

In order to get the most benefits from any mask, always remove your make-up and cleanse your skin properly so your mask can better penetrate your skin.

 

Our TIP:

 

If you do not use a natural exfoliant as your mask, exfoliate your skin beforehand. This will help your skin to absorb all your potions more effectively. Just make sure you use a mild exfoliant which is gentle to your skin and do not cause any irritation. Try our Crystal Peeling Face Lens which is very gentle but very effective peeling device and thanks to its special silica abrasive surface not only it does remove the dead skin cells, but also nourishes the skin right during the treatment.
