3 natural homemade masks for face
The summer heat and dust particularly intolerant to our skin, and the face suffers, of course, the most. Three homemade masks from natural ingredients helps you to moisturize and restore the skin.
A quick refreshing and cooling mask
Almost a necessity for the hot summer in the big city.
To make this mask, you will need distilled water (1 Cup), a bag of green tea, 5 drops of lavender oil, lemon, fresh mint and a jar.
- Fill the jar with water, put inside the tea bag and leave to cool in the fridge.
- When the mixture is cool, add lavender oil - it soothes the skin and cleanses the pores.
- Squeeze a half of lemon – it tightens pores and refreshes the complexion.
- Add leaves of fresh mint is optional, but they smell nice in and of themselves have a calming and cooling effect, even when placed in cold water. Place the jar in the refrigerator and store it there, using as needed.
Remember that natural face masks are not stored as long as conventional cosmetics. This mixture is best used within 5 days (this is just the length of the working week, and on a hot and busy week days a little rest for the skin as never before), and then make a new one.
Cleansing homemade face mask against blackheads
This mask quickly restores the complexion, removes blackheads, deep cleanses and tightens pores and helps reduce sebum.
All you will need – egg whites (1 egg), bowl and tissue paper, and a wide makeup brush (do not forget after the procedure to wash it in cool water!).
To make the mask:
- Take protein, pour it into a bowl and slightly whisk.
- Carefully apply it with a brush on the face, avoiding eyes and lips.
- From a sheet of tissue paper cut 4 round holes for eyes, nose and lips. Carefully place the paper on the face, gently prigladit her. Another good option – Narva paper into very small pieces and gently scatter them across the face, covering every area of the skin.
- Apply another layer of egg white on top.
- Leave to dry – usually for 15-20 minutes. After the mask is completely dry, gently pry the edge and pull up, removing it from the bottom up. The black dots will remain on paper.
- Wash with warm water and apply, if you wish, moisturizer.
This mask should be used twice a week if skin is prone to fat, and once if the skin is dry.
