Do you like creating your own natural face masks? It only takes a couple of minutes to make a beauty mask with ingredients you have at home. For example, honey can be used as a simple honey face mask.
A facial mask is also a perfect stress and nutrition technique which I refer to as facial meditation. Below are some homemade face mask recipes for facial meditation I adopted from www.wholeliving.com
Now, make one of these beauty remedies – lie down and relax – enjoy your “Me Time”.
Don’t forget to breathe…….
Green-Papaya Brightening Face Mask Beauty Remedy
This brightening mask beauty remedy exfoliates and stimulates circulation in the face.
- unripe papaya contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids and high levels of papain, an enzyme that helps dissolve dead skin cells:
- yogurt adds lactic acid (another alpha-hydroxy) and gives the mask a creamy texture:
- honey helps skin retain moisture.
1/2 cup unripe papaya, diced
1 teaspoon plain yogurt
1 teaspoon honey
Blend ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Apply to clean skin using fingers; leave on for 8 to 10 minutes. Rinse off using cool water and pat dry. Finish by applying a gentle moisturizer.When left on, the mask should tingle slightly; if you have sensitive skin or prefer a gentler exfoliation, use ripe papaya, which has less papain.
Balancing Yogurt and Green Tea Face Mask Beauty Remedy
- 1 egg white
- 1 tbsp steeped green tea
- ½ tbsp plain organic yogurt
- 2 tbsp oatmeal, finely ground
- ½ tsp honey
Whip egg white until foamy. Mix green tea and oatmeal; combine with egg white, yogurt and oatmeal; add honey. Apply to clean skin and leave on for 8-10 minutes then rinse.
