Your skin is one of the first things people notice when they see you. Beautiful skin glows with good health. It is unmarked by age spots, wrinkles, acne and scars. Although our skin inevitably ages as we do, it is possible to maintain lovely smooth skin throughout our lives.
Most commercial anti-wrinkle potions are very expensive, but the primary problem with using these products is all the chemicals they contain. Instead, choose one of these natural alternatives. These facial mask combinations hydrate the skin and exfoliate to remove dead skin cells. They also have ingredients that disinfect the skin and prevent infections.
Here are some very effective natural face masks:
Pure Honey And Papaya Face Mask
Papaya is a very healthy tropical fruit, rich in anti-aging properties to fight wrinkles and dark spots. It also firms and rejuvenates the skin. Its enzyme, papain, protects the skin from forming pus and soothes inflammation.
Blend honey with mashed papaya, and apply to your face and neck. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes then rinse. Your skin will be smooth, soft and firm.
Raw Honey And Milk
This mask is excellent for relieving redness and irritation. Mix 1 tablespoon pure honey with 1 tablespoon yogurt or milk. Blend well, then apply to the face with a cotton ball. Leave on the skin 15 minutes, then rinse off.
Honey, Cinnamon, Lemon, And Nutmeg
Cinnamon is a antibacterial that helps you fight bacterial infections in the skin. Honey and lemon also have antibacterial properties. Together, they accelerate healing acne and disinfect the skin. Nutmeg is a powerful anti-inflammatory.
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
1 teaspoon Pure honey
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
Mix the ingredients in order and prepare a paste. Apply the paste to your face, avoiding the areas around the eyes and mouth. Leave the mask on for half an hour, then rinse if off with warm water. If the mixture becomes uncomfortable and the burning sensation is too strong, rinse it off sooner. For very sensitive skin, omit the lemon juice or dilute it. After rinsing and drying, apply a moisturizing cream.
Banana And Avocado
These two fruits provide essential vitamins and minerals to treat acne scars and other impurities, and moisturize your skin.
Chop the fruits in small pieces and blend together. Add a small amount of raw honey or olive oil. Apply the mask to clean skin and leave for 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.
Turmeric And Aloe Vera
Used together, turmeric and aloe vera detoxify and moisturize the skin. Both are rich in nutrients, enzymes and polysaccharides. Add a teaspoon of aloe vera pump to freshly ground turmeric powder and make a paste. Apply it to the face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
Try these luscious natural masks, and you may never use drugstore cosmetic products again.
