These masks will help you quickly solve the most common skin problems. You can find all the products in your kitchen!
1. For acne
Puree the banana and honey by mixing in equal proportions. Apply pointwise or all over the face: zinc and vitamin C in the mask relieve inflammation and reduce redness, exfoliate excess and restore health to the skin.
2. From spider veins
No, they will not magically disappear, but they will become less noticeable. Grate medium potatoes and add ground oatmeal. Apply daily to problem areas for 10-15 minutes.
3. For tone
A protein mask will help to invigorate skin cells, improve microcirculation and nourish the skin with proteins: just beat 1 protein with a mixer into a tight foam and apply to the skin. Rinse off after 10 minutes. With regular use, the skin will become firmer!
4. For freshness
In the heat, it is especially important: when you were sitting in a stuffy office all day, then driving home by public transport or breathing exhaust gases, it is not enough to clean your skin – you want to refresh it. Grate a cucumber and add a spoonful of heavy cream. In 10 minutes you will feel your skin breathing!
5. For protection
To strengthen the skin’s barrier function, to help it better resist stress and unfavorable ecology, once a week, make a mask with a tablespoon of warm olive oil, one yolk and a spoonful of any natural fruit juice.
6. Against peeling
If the skin is chapped, a mask of fat cottage cheese, carrot juice and milk will help: mix them in equal proportions and hold them on the skin for 15 minutes.
7. For cleansing
Gentle exfoliation for dry and sensitive skin: mix a tablespoon of semolina and ground oatmeal, add 2 teaspoons of sour cream, a teaspoon of olive oil and egg yolk. Apply to skin and leave to dry. Then gently roll the mask off your face with stroking movements. Very delicate and effective cleansing! Try homemade clay masks too.
To keep the skin elastic and youthful longer, make a mask of sour cream and turmeric: mix half a teaspoon of spice with two tablespoons of sour cream and apply on the face for 10 minutes before bedtime.
9. Against oily sheen
Oily to combination skin will shine less if you use a bean mask in the morning. Soak white or variegated beans overnight, and in the morning mash, add a tablespoon of olive oil and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply generously to the T-zone and hold for 15 minutes.
10. Against free radicals
Forgot to apply SPF and don’t want your skin to suffer? Make a grape mask before bed, it’s an antioxidant champion! Chop the berries in puree and add a little gelatin for viscosity. As the gelatin begins to “set”, apply to face, neck and décolleté and hold for 20 minutes.
