How to Make Your Own All-Natural Face Masks


How to Make Your Own All-Natural Face Masks. Tired of spending a lot of money on facial
products that don’t even work? Try on some masks made from items you already
own—they’re all natural and good enough to eat! You will need Canned pumpkin Papaya A strawberry
An avocado Witch hazel A grapefruit Sugar Yogurt Honey A peach Oatmeal Brown sugar Milk
A cucumber A banana An egg A lemon and a plum or nectarine. Step 1. Pumpkin is loaded with skin-healing antioxidants,
while papaya contains an enzyme that dissolves oil and dead skin cells. Mix one cup of canned, mashed pumpkin with
2/3 cup mashed papaya, apply to a clean, dry face, leave on for ten minutes, then rinse. Don’t have papaya? Pineapple works just as well. Step 2. Strawberries contain alpha-hydroxy acid, which
helps slough off dead skin cells, and salicylic acid, which dries up oil that can block pores
and cause breakouts. For clearer, brighter skin, simply cut a berry
in half, rub on your face, leave for five minutes, and wash off. Step 3. Avocados are rich in vitamin E, which is great
for moisturizing dry skin. Mash one, add a few drops of witch hazel—which
dries oily skin and removes impurities—and apply for five minutes for smoother, softer
skin. Wash your face no more than twice a day; any
more than that and you risk stripping the skin of its natural oils. Step 4. The acids in grapefruit exfoliate dead skin
and boost cell renewal, leaving you with fresher skin, while the vitamin C increases collagen,
making your face look smoother. Combine the juice of a grapefruit with enough
sugar to make a paste, rub into damp skin in the shower, leave for one minute, then
rinse. Step 5. Honey softens and moisturizes dry skin, while
yogurt has lactic acid that rejuvenates the complexion. Mix a teaspoon of honey with two tablespoons
milk, heat it in the microwave for 15 seconds to slightly melt the honey, and apply for
ten to fifteen minutes. Step 6. Like strawberries, peaches contain the natural
exfoliant alpha-hydroxy acid, while oatmeal soothes and softens dry, flaky skin. Mash a ripe peach, add a tablespoon each of
oatmeal and honey, and apply for ten minutes. Don’t have a peach available? Plums and nectarines have alpha-hydroxy acid,
too! Step 7. Brown sugar is a natural exfoliant that scrubs
dead skin cells, while milk cleanses. Mix a cup of brown sugar with a tablespoon
of milk, rub into the skin for a full minute, and leave on for 15 minutes. Step 8. Cucumber has cooling properties that reduce
redness, inflammation, and puffiness. In a blender, mix together half a cucumber
with a tablespoon of yogurt, apply to the face, and leave on for 20 minutes to feel
refreshed. Step 9. Bananas have natural fruit acids that slough
off dry skin cells. Mash one ripe banana with two tablespoons
plain yogurt and apply for 15 minutes for a revitalized complexion. Step 10. Egg whites tighten pores in the skin while
lemon is filled with skin-revitalizing vitamin C that can help remove blackheads and blemishes. Separate the egg white from the yolk, add
a few drops of lemon juice, and apply for 15 minutes. Did you know You’ll replace each skin cell
about eight times by the end of this year.
