Every now and then we deserve some “me time”. Let’s be real, when was the last time you have pampered yourself with a great homemade face mask? I haven’t done any homemade face masks for years. Sometimes, we need to take a break from studying or homework. We all deserve some “me time”. Let start right now.
I came across these super easy homemade face masks from Adina Grigore. She is the author of Skin Cleanse: The Simple, All-Natural Program for Clear, Calm Happy Skin. Keep reading if you dealing with an oily forehead or if you just need simple a glow boost. Here are four simple homemade face masks to treat your skin issues.
Dessert Face Mask
It repairs and prevents cell damage, clears up blemishes, moisturizes your skin.
- 4 tsp. cocoa powder
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- 2 tsp. olive oil
Instructions: Mix cocoa powder and sea salt in a small bowl, then stir in olive oil to create a paste. Apply with your fingers and leave on for as long as you’d like. Rinse your face carefully.
Adina’s Note: “Sea salt kills bacteria and is great for blemishes. It may start to sting over time as it works its magic. This recipe makes one or two uses and can sit out on your counter for a few days.”
Oil Balancing Mayonaise Mask
It balances the oil production of your skin. Furthermore, it brightens and exfoliates.
- 1 tbsp. mayonaise
- 1 tbsp. orange juice (fresh would be Great)
- 2 tbsp. corn flour
Instructions: Stir all three ingredients together in a bowl. Make sure to fully incorporate the corn flour into the wet ingredients. Apply with your fingers and let dry. Rinse the face mask off.
Adina’s Note: “This is a great mask to use if you’re really oily! The orange juice brightens with vitamin C, and corn flour is a soft exfoliant and does an amazing job of soaking up excess oil from the skin. The corn will not melt in the solution and will be a bit grainy, so be very gentle when applying. This recipe will make about three applications, but it will spoil quickly, so store it in a sealed container in the fridge and use within a few days.”
