DIY At-Home Facial Masks

Apr 08, 2013

Whether you're hanging out with nothing to do, having a sleepover with friends or need to refresh your skin and feel great, raid the fridge and pantry and make your own at-home facial mask.

It's Easy to DIY!

Embrace your inner mad scientist and concoct a homemade facial mask. Try one of these great recipes,depending on your skin type.

  • HYDRATING: This mask can be used whenever your skin needs freshening up. Like when you're coming out of winter hibrenation or after a day of tanning or outdoor sports.  1 teaspoon mashed banana, 1 teaspoon rolled oats, 1/2 teaspoon milk, 1/2 teaspoon softened (slightly warmed) honey
  • REDUCE PUFFINESS: After pulling an all-nighter or eating too many salty snacks, your skin may appear puffy. Give your skin a wake-up call with some coffee! 4 tablespoons finely ground coffee, 4 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder, 4 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • OILY SKIN: Milk of Magnesia is pure magnesium, which is the essential ingredient in the clay used for clay masks. To treat oily skin, apply milk of magnesia to face as a mask. Let it harden, then rinse clean to eliminate that oily sheen and reduce the risk of pimples.
  • SENSITIVE SKIN: If your skin is sensitive and gets blotchy or irritated, try this soothing recipe to even out your skin tone. 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon honey, warmed and softened

How-To:

Always clean your face with a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil or Pond's Cold Cream before applying a mask. Tie hair back to avoid getting the mask in your hair or sticking your hair to your face. Mix ingredients together and smooth onto your face, then relax! Apply cool cucumber slices to your eyes if you need to reduce puffiness. Leave mask on for 5 minutes, then rinse with warm water and finish with a moisturizer. Use a facial mask once a week to keep your skin cleansed and looking great.

Honestly, I don't have BFF'S. They all are just my friends, only friends because they are not the person whom I can share anything. They are always fun and joking, chilling types. But, I'd be glad if I find someone who'll understand me. Not all the joking and etc.  :)

Just use a darkish eye-shadow in the creases of your eyelid, and don't use any foundation. No-one will notice that you are wearing makeup and your eyes will appear slightly bigger and more dreamy.  :D

make sure you keep your face clean to prevent acne, I use CLEAR CELL medicated acne lotion which I brought from ###########.#############.###################################-cell-medicated-acne-lotion. Besides that, I use light foundation whenever I go out and kohl for my eyes.
