Did you know you have stuff readily available in your kitchen that would help you get a flawless face? There are products on the market for face care but there are also some ingredients you have at home that can get the job done for you. These ingredients can clear up your skin and leave your face feeling smooth and fresh. They help reduce pimples and acne break out. They also fade out acne scaring and even out your skin tone.
So if you are on a budget or you've run out of face care products, don't worry.
Before using the face mask, you have to wash your face with a mild soap, soaps made specifically for face.
The next step is to steam your face. Steaming your face opens up your pores. This way the dirt will easily draw out when you use the face mask.
To steam your face;
Pour hot water in a clean bowl
Put a towel over your head and place your face close enough to the water so that you can feel the heat on your face. But not so close that it burns your face. Also remember to close your eyes.
Below are the homemade face masks that I have personally tried that works great.
MILK: Apply milk on your face for about 20 minutes or more. Rinse off with water. This will leave your face feeling soft and smooth. You can leave it on over night.
MILK AND NUTMEG: This is my favourite. Because the nutmeg helps fight acne and pimples and draws out the dirt on your face. The milk also act as a moisturizer that softens your face and evens out your skin tone.
Mix milk with nutmeg to form a paste and apply it on your face. leave it on for about 20 minutes and wash with plenty of water. For some reason the nutmeg makes you feel sleepy. You can leave it on over night. Your face will instantly feel smoother and you smell yummy too because of the nutmeg.
SUGAR: Mix sugar with water to form a thick paste. Apply it on your face and rub it gently like you are massaging your face. Rinse your face with plenty of water.
This sugar scrub can also be used to exfoliate your lips. It makes your lips feel soft and smooth.
You can also mix sugar with honey and apply it on your face.
If you dont have white sugar, you can use brown sugar.
HONEY: Apply raw honey on your face. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and rinse off with plenty of water. This will even out your skin tone and leave your face feeling smooth and soft.
BAKING SODA: Mix baking soda with water to form a paste. Apply it on your face and leave it on for about 15 minutes. This will remove dirt and dead cells from your face.
