Homemade Face Masks Quick and Easy

It seems that no matter how well you take care of your facial skin, large pores can always find their way to your face, leading to blemishes.

So I decided to give myself a challenge by collecting and testing the best homemade face masks from the ingredients that everybody can easily find at home.

The beauty of making your own homemade face masks is that you can blend in other ingredients to tailor the mask to your own beauty needs. At home, you can mix in a few ingredients and create your own personal mask. Not only will this save you money, but you’ll be putting an all-natural product onto your face 😊

QUICK TIPS TO MINIMIZE PORES

  1. Wash your face every day but don’t overdo it. Use a daily gentle scrub and soap (you can buy here) to help unclog pores because pores enlarge when they become clogged with dirt, oil, or bacteria, causing them to become inflamed. Washing twice a day will help keep pores look smaller and feel better.
  2. Keep the area cold. When washing the face, use cold water. This will have a tightening effect on the skin.

Tips

  • If you prefer a quicker variant: Take half a tomato and massage your face or even neck with it, leave it for 15 minutes and then rinse it off. After applying the pulp, I felt a slight “stinging” on my skin for the first 5 to 10 minutes and then my skin felt tight.

egg whites face mask

Eggs whites are full of the proteins and collagen and therefore can improve skin tone and elasticity and are suitable for those who are fighting any type of skin inflammation.

Things You’ll Need

  • 1 egg white
  • Small bowl
  • Hand mixer

How to Make an Egg White Facial Mask

  1. Separate the egg yolk and egg white
  2. 2. Beat the white into a frothy foam by using a hand mixer  
  3. Spread the foam over your face
  4. Leave it on your face until the mask is dried (I usually keep it on until it becomes a sticky texture. At first when you put the mask on, it will feel foamy and smooth, as it dries it becomes a little bit more of a clay type texture, this means it is working)
  5. Then simply washed it away with water and dry out

Tips 

  • For a quicker way use a cotton ball to massage egg white on your face.

 

Please note: these are not an overnight remedy. It can take a few weeks to a few months. Patience and determination is a must! I really don’t mind and I would prefer taking this safe and natural route. But I will definitely continue this natural remedy.

Enjoy the natural remedy to a healthier skin!
