For an easy exfoliating mask, mix three table spoons olive oil or any good oil and one tablespoon kosher salt mix and gently rub into dry skin. Do not use around eye area. This works great on elbows and feet, but it can also be used on cheeks and forehead.
1. Egg Whites :
Use egg whites. Just beat one egg white until it is frothy. Spread it all over your face. Wait until it dries. Rinse it off. Your face feels very clean and “tight” after this application.
2. Egg Yolks :
The best home made facial mask used is a raw egg yolk. Just apply the raw yolk to your face and neck for 30 minutes and rinse with cool water. Egg yolks are high in vitamin A. The mask is very effective in healing blemishes.
3. If you are looking for an exfoliating mask, blend a mashed banana with white cosmetic clay and apply. This mask is both moisturising and nourishing.
4. 1 overripe tomato (combats dryness)
1 tsp. lemon juice (combats oiliness)
1 tsp. instant oatmeal (exfoliates)
Place ingredients in blender and puree. Apply with brush or fingers. Leave on 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
# Match Mask to Your Skin Type
For trouble-prone skin, mix oatmeal with water to form a paste.
For normal to oily skin, use an egg white.
For dry skin, use an egg yolk.
In all cases, spread mixture on face and allow to dry. Rinse thoroughly with cool water.
For oily skin, witch hazel makes an inexpensive toner.
For dry skin, you may want to add moisturiser while skin is still damp.
# Oatmeal :
The cheapest and best facial mask ever come up with is oatmeal processed to a powder in the blender and either skin milk or if you are trying to fade spots lemon juice.
